obeying God


(November 30, 2022) Hope Flinchbaugh shares an end-of-month thought from her recommended meditation book below…

‘I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower,
and will watch to see what he will say unto me,
and what I shall answer when I am reproved. 

And the Lord answered me, and said,
Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables,
that he may run that readeth it’ (Habakkuk 2:1-2KJV).

Have you heard speak to you this month? Did you write down what He said?

You know, it’s possible that God is showing you things that are not just for you, but for other people. I want to encourage you to read over your drawings photos, and writings from this month.

  • Has God renewed your strength as waited on Him?
  • Have you heard His voice?
  • Did you experience, ‘Be still, and know that I am God’ (Psalm 46:10)?

More importantly, is there anything that God has told you to do? Did you obey Him? Obedience is the thrill of His heart and the greatest evidence of our love for Him.

I encourage you to take time to reflect on what God has shown you and finish this month watching and waiting before the Lord one more time.

Jump-start prayer: Lord, I come to the garden alone. Here I am, watching and waiting at the womb of the dawn. What is on your heart today?

(August 11, 2021) Robert and Maureen McQuillan remember and honour…

Mid last month, Dr James McConnell (84) – fondly known to his church, Metropolitan Tabernacle, Whitewell, Northern Ireland, friends and others as ‘the Bishop’ – passed on to glory (See Tribute to the Late Dr James McConnell and Whitewell Thanksgiving Service Dr James McConnell).

On-fire for Jesus
James McConnell was an outstanding man of God! Saved at a very young age and powerfully filled with the Spirit, he was so in love with his Saviour that he wanted everyone to discover what he had found. He was God’s instrument in thousands around the world finding Christ, not just his beloved Northern Ireland.

One of the great keys in his ministry was that he was always obedient to the Lord, even when it seemed a crazy thing to do.
