HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD!
“Praise the Lord, my soul. Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.” (Psalm 104:1).
My husband and I recently had the joy of visiting the Grand Canyon. It is such a vast and majestic experience of God’s great and beautiful creation – truly amazing! Even more amazing is knowing that while He created this awesome world, He created us in His own image (Genesis 1:27), and love us so incredibly. How wonderful and great is that?
As His followers, Jesus tells us in John 14:12, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” I don’t think Jesus is referring to us doing greater miracles than Him, but rather through the work of the power of the Holy Spirit, who lives in us. From John 14, Luis taught on an appreciable and applicable message on Jesus sharing His greatness with us:
Dream Great Dreams! Luis and the Palau ministry has dreamed and continues to greatly dream of what the Lord can and will do through them! The dream of preaching in Central Park in NYC became a reality in July of 2015 and it’s exciting to see what the future holds as the Palau team continues to dream big with the vision for 2020 and beyond!
Pray Great Prayers! In John 14:13-14, Jesus says, “And I will do whatever you ask in m name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” When we ask in the will and power of His name, He answers! We must pray! It’s a joy and a privilege to pray; and that’s what we’re all about! Pray great prayers with us!
Obey Great Commands! Jesus commands us to love God with all our hearts and to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:37-39). Jesus goes on to remind us in John 14:21, “Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me.” We prove our love for Jesus by obeying what he says. The Palau ministry (and we) do this by obeying His great commission to “Go and make disciples of all nations.”
A lot of great things are happening in the Palau ministry and while they’re dreaming great dreams, we need prayer to make them reality! The Next Generation Alliance (NGA) is growing, as is the Global Network of Evangelists (GNE) to fulfill that great commission. Check out the Palau website for City Gospel Movements (CGM): citygospelmovements.org. The CGM team is rising up and the Church is being strengthened and unified. There’s a lot of work to do and your prayers are needed.
Thanks for joining us as we pray for Luis, Kevin, Andrew, and the entire Palau team as God empowers, commands and commissions them to proclaim the Gospel and do great things around His amazing world!
Praying with you,
“I said, ‘I beseech You, O LORD God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who preserves the covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments’” (Nehemiah 1:5).
