God at work (look out below!)
Tuesday, July 24, 2007

Was touched by God in the most unlikely circumstance. One more person will join the AV team, which is nicole thio. So i was talking with her, asking her why she joined?
Directly quoted: "because when uncle kim pong gave the sermon i told god whatever opportunity to serve him comes my way ill accept it. Then ivfy smsed me abt AV" That really hit me on how God provides for what we need.. Be it food to man (or woman)power



Look to Him
Sunday, July 22, 2007

It was a sobering message that Pong brought to us today. Was especially struck by his sharing of the OC as on the brink of becoming a dead sea, being so blessed and yet not letting the Lord pour us out- and this demonstrated in plain and practical ways eg. how many of us have encouraged Uncle Joe or thanked Melissa, what time do we arrive at Church and how quickly do we leave.. I know I had an uncomfortable feeling in my heart. As was listening, was reminded of this verse from 2 Chronicles 7:14:
'if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land'

Not that I think that any of us are knowingly wicked, but I do think the OC is in need of healing. So what does God's word hold for us?
1. Humble ourselves: Interestingly, this was the message God had for the OC yesterday when I was praying. Let's examine our hearts- are we looking to God as Lord and King, or subconsciously (or consciously!) valuing other things/people/qualities/ourselves and our opinions as more important?

2. Pray and seek God's face: Is our walk with God a real, personal, continuous relationship? Are we committing to being in places where we know He'll be- no matter what we feel like? How earnestly do we desire His presence?

4. Turn from wicked ways: How sincerely are we seeking to be convicted by Him, to go with and be used by Him?

These are not things that come about merely by willing them to be out of nothing. No..my prayer for us is that God will continually reveal a vision of Him, high and lifted up, that fixing our eyes on Him, just as Isaiah in Isaiah 6:1-8, we might then respond in obedience with humbled and adoring hearts.

Don't lose sight of Him this week!
