Did anyone notice that I missed a day? Yes! I got to my new job in another state and discovered late last night that there was no wireless or laptop available for me. Since I needed to prepare for two meetings, I saw this as God’s grace.
Besides, this is leap year, so I’ll still get 365 entries in!!
I was comissioned for my new job this morning. To keep Holiday’s anonymity, I cannot mention the name of the ministry, except that the name includes a reference to stones.
I sensed the Lord would provide me with a Scripture for the occasion, and here’s what I got – from today’s reading:
…thus says the Lord God,
“Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion,
a stone, a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation:
‘Whoever believes will not be in haste.’ Isaiah 28:16 ESV
How cool is that?
This is the same verse that Paul in Romans and Peter in his epistle quote – speaking of Jesus.
This ministry is built on the foundation of the Stone. This ministry tells others about the Stone: Jesus.
I like the ESV’s last verse about not being in haste. The ESV Study Bible says that the nation of Judah did not need to be in haste to deal with the Egyptians IF they trusted God. God would address the problem. The same verse is translated elsewhere: “the one who relies on the Stone will never be stricken with panic.” NIV
I did not realize until someone told me after the fact, that I needed to not be in haste to take care of some problems in the ministry because GOD is in charge. I don’t need to be stricken with panic either. I like that passage!
Amen and Amen!!
