Zechariah 8:23 “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In those days ten men from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, ‘Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you,’”
God promises a time when people will be begging to go to church with us! People will finally awaken to their need of God, their desires will change and they will pursue Him by asking us where to find Him! Be ready for this!
Already, I have people stopping me in the grocery stores to talk to me or ask questions about where items can be found. I had this happen twice this weekend in two different stores. I stop what I am doing and purposely talk with strangers. Who knows where the conversation will lead? One time I got to pray with a woman in Walmart for her handicapped granddaughter. The woman was showing me pictures of the girl on her cell phone!
Be available at all times to share Christ, pray, stop what you are doing and talk to strangers! Remember Jesus who chatted with a woman at the well about a simple drink of water and how that lead to her conversion.

Pastor Nate continues to teach on Transition and change, it is an exciting time in our lives as we move forward in Christ to advance His Kingdom.
In life we will face those "Decision Making" moments: Should I go to school?, should I get married?, Should I move out of town?, should I cut ties with some people?, etc. Those "moments" can be trying to our Faith. At those times we may face confusion or doubt and we may even grow increasing weary of "THINKING".
Well, the Bible has a lot to say about decision making and I want to share that with you on this post.
The Bible tells us that wisdom, which is what we need to make decisions, comes from God. In those moments of making decisions we should seek God's wisdom and understanding. today Pastor Jesse Duplantis tweeted: "If you want to be successful in life, you need to know everything in the Bible." studying the Word of God will open up your eyes to His heart for you. You will know what to do when you draw close to Him. Here are some scriptures to help you get started: -Brisyo
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
So that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding…
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.Proverbs 22:3
A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.
He who answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame to him.
"Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."Proverbs 11:14
Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.
