Today was the third and final day of our conference in Butuan. This morning we looked at how those who fear God live new lives for God. We looked at the examples of Moses in Hebrews 11 and Paul in Philippians 3 and noted how they had made a definite decision by faith to turn away from the world and to turn toward God. We then looked at how God must become our Source and not just our Solution as we learn to approach the throne of grace. After the session after our lunch break we shared communion together and the presence of God was wonderful. We then invited people to share their testimony of what God was doing in their lives and many reported to having been revived and inspired by God's revelation to them. We also heard today and witnessed that Jireh Mae is now able to walk by herself without the help of her dad, who had to help her previously because of the pain in her body! Now she is walking around without pain! Hallelujah!
The conference has been great. The pastors and leaders that attended were very hungry for the reviving truth of God's Word and the presence of His Spirit and they did not leave disappointed but were filled spiritually and physically. Many testified to being greatly encouraged in their faith and strengthened to persevere in the fear of the Lord as they rely on, respond to and revere God's presence in their lives. I praise God for His awesome revelation to the people that has stirred their spirits to live for His glory. Hallelujah!
On the way to the conference hall I saw these signs that I found interesting. Mc Donalds really is all over the world and look - you can rent some jungle! The common method of transportation are tricycles that are fun to ride with. During the lunch break I had to get something from my hotel so Berwyn took me on one of the pastor's motorcycles.
Tomorrow is another full day but I am living from the Source and relying on God's grace. Glory to Him!
"My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." Col. 2:2,3
