The women of The Bridge will gather to pray this evening as part of our Seek Solemn Assembly. The prayer gathering will take place at 7:30pm at the Silver Spring Civic Center.  Scripture is filled with women who prayed amd served God faithfully. Luke 2:36-38 speaks of Anna the prophetess who served in the temple with fastings and prayers.  In 1 Samuel, Hannah poured out her heart before the Lord as she yearned to birth a child. Godly women are women of prayer. Her greatest assets are her knees.  She realizes that apart from God she can do nothing.  While others think they are too busy to pray, she realizes that she’s too busy to not pray.  I pray that God will be attentive as His daughters cry out to Him tonight.

We launched our God in 3D series yesterday. We kicked it off with Iron Man as we discussed choosing honor over compromise. God honor those who honor Him. In the movie, Tony Starks made a decision to stop producing nuclear weapons even though this would cost him to loose billions of dollars in future profits. We too have to make decisions of integrity, even though it may appear to take us two steps backwards. The right decision may mean us taking a lower salary, choosing not to cheat to get the promotion, or turning away from what appears to be an open door. We looked at Daniel 1 where Daniel made a decision not to defile himself with the kings choice food. From the surface, it seemed as if the decision would cost Daniel to loose everything he had going for him: fine dining, great education, and secured future employment. His decision to honor God caused God to honor him. The Lord showered him with favor beyond measure. Next week, we tackle Spider-Man 3!

There was a storm watch in our area yesterday.  My wife and mother called me yesterday to check on me due to the weather.  After turning on the TV, I found it was actually it was a tornado watch for our county! I must admit.  I didn’t take it very seriously until it got extremely dark, the lights starting dimming in and out (as if our electricity had dimmer control), and the weather man froze on the television.  Yeah!  Spooky stuff.  This was followed by some of the loudest thunder I’ve ever heard.  I said, “Woe!” Praise God, we made it through the storm.  One of the trees in our yard fell down, but that was about it.  Most importantly, my wife was O.K.  I’m spending a some time in Joshua 1.  I thought it would be a great idea to remind myself of the key to success: walking in God’s Word.

I am continuously amazed at how practical God’s Word is. We often say, “We need to make the Word of God practical for people’s lives.” It is already practical. We simply need to preach what it says. God’s Word appear to be irrelevant to many because they aren’t aware of what Scripture teaches. That’s not just true for unbelievers, but believers as well. I’m preparing for Prison Break Part 2 and I’m like, “Man! It’s all here!” All we have to do is study it, people! Just take some time out of your schedule to study God’s Word. Trust me. It’s there!
