Today I reflected on what the Lord has been doing within the military community and the portion of work that He has assigned to the MCF. Even though it appears that Canadian society is becoming increasingly secularized, He is even more active stirring the hearts and minds of people to turn towards Jesus. There is no fanfare, no great media announcements, rather like the wind of His Spirit the effects of His presence are observable, and it is exciting to see and to feel. It is like the breeze off the ocean in the middle of a hot summer day – cool, refreshing, invigorating. He is moving, and we are permitted to move with Him.
This past year the MCF has experienced His favour, and the forecast is that this favour will increase. I can say this because we are receiving increased funding, some of which is from sources unknown. I am grateful for what the Lord is doing in the hearts of people, drawing them to Himself and motivating them to contribute to the mission of bringing the good news of Jesus to the military community. If you are one of these people, then thank you. Thank you for your willingness to invest in what He is doing and is about to do. Please consider accompanying your financial contribution with prayer. Prayer for the military community and prayer for the members of the MCF as they serve Jesus by serving this unique community and bring the gospel along with them.
If you are reading this and have not yet contributed financially to the MCF, please take a moment and pray asking the Lord what He would have you do. Please also consider if you would join us on our mission.
David wrote many beautiful Psalms as he was carried along by the Spirit. I draw your attention to Psalm 37 and in particular verse 4 – “Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” If you are still looking for a New Years resolution, consider this one: seek to delight yourself in the Lord no matter what your circumstances. I am confident that He will fulfill your desires.
Thank you for your partnership and support in 2018. Now let’s see what the Lord will do in 2019!
