    As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desir...

    He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.' Simon answered him, 'Master, we wor...

    He told them this parable. 'Which of you men, if you had one hundred sheep, and lost one of them, wouldn't leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that was lost, until he found it?' Luke 15:3 WEBWhen I first got serious about serving the Lord Jesus, I was a musician and played ...

Slow Train Coming

  • Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they quickly brought him out of the pit. And when he had shaved himself and changed his clothes, he came in before Pharaoh. Genesis 41:14 ESV

    Joseph had been in prison for over two years, and had been sold as a slave by his brothers years before that. Now he was standing before the pharaoh of Egypt and being given his signet ring. Suddenly, he was the second-in-command of the most powerful nation on earth. Prison in the morning, Ruler of Egypt in the evening. His dream had seemed to take forever, but it had now arrived.

    This day was part of God's plan for Joseph and had taken between thirteen to twenty years to come to pass. It was intricate in detail and there were many layers and characters involved in making this happen. Israel was saved during an intense famine. Joseph learned management skills. He was humbled and became a broken man that God could use. There was over a decade of Joseph feeling forgotten, but suddenly his dream came to pass.

    God's plans are intricate, deep, and all the pieces have to line up. This can take time, but suddenly it will happen, and it will happen. Keep on doing what you are supposed to do. Don't neglect your part of the plan and be sure to work with Him. God's plan for you may take time, but it will arrive right on schedule.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that You stir me, wake me, give me a fresh fire and cause me to live Your perfect plan for my life. Move the things that need to be moved and open the doors that need to be opened. In the name of Jesus I pray.

Heavenly Father, I know that your word says that all things work for good, we just do not understand. Please help us not to grumble or have fear. Your word says your ways are not our ways, help us to understand what you are doing.

Thanks for this message, Brother! I'Ve heard it said that when one encounters adversity, it is a good sign that he, or she, is doing something right. After all, opposition is affected to prevent us from completing our work for The Lord. "Slow Train Coming" really captured my attention this morning, for another reason. In addition to aptly describing how our spiritual progress, and growth sometimes seems to be, as a "Slow Train Coming" as well as the ongoing progress of our individual calling and work:  as a young man, many years ago, I purchased Bob Dylan's first album released, after his conversion, which was titled, "Slow Train Coming". How many were the days, evenings, and hours, spent listening to that recording! I have spent a lot of "blood, sweat. and tears" in the years since on my way to spiritual maturity, but thank The Lord, by his blessing, and mercy, I am still standing for Him. Thanks again, Brother Dion. Have a wonderful day!
