SUNDAY SCRIPTURE SENT BY GHUNA KUMAR FOR GOSPEL FRIENDS, P.BOX 2202 MANDAVELI CHENNAI 28 INDIA
Now God is teaching me to live on the promises of God. Let me share the three verses that illumined my mind recently
LOOK BACK AND APPRECIATE
¯Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past¯
Isaiah 43 : 18. I do have a temptation to live on the past rather than looking into the future. Of course I am fully thankful to The Lord for the past and all what God did and the great people involved
LOOK AHEAD AND ANTICIPATE
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19
NEW AND NOW will happen to God's children. It will always be NEW WAY and NEW WATER OF PROVISIONS.
LOOK WITHIN AND ADMIRE
"...the people whom I formed for myself that they might declare my praise."
Isaiah 43:10 when I look in my heart I can only be filled with praising God.
" I will sing to the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being." Psa 104:33 " I will praise the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being." Psa 146:2
PRAYER : Dear God, help me to be filled with your praises. Amen
PRAISE AND PRAYER
Our state government brought in thirty seven new rules for those who run orphanages. Even though we already follow many of these rules, we are worried about two rules. One is to set up CCTV cameras which is quite expensive and the other is to move the boys to the next campus. We did spot a place to build but building has to be done. Pray for this big need.
At the same time all of our three pumping motors failed and we had a very hard time. We had to go in for two new motors which was again a burden.
Our campus is full with students. There are many requests for the Bible college but we do not have room in the boys dorm. Please pray that God will give us wisdom.
Pray for the Nepali students for they got difficulties in adjusting with food, culture and discipline.
Pray for our financial crisis. We pray for new donors, the past donors to increase their giving and some churches and some agencies to consider to support us.
Pray for the special meetings we have on 18th and 19th with Randy
I love you and God bless you
