This is a letter to our friends –
How big is our God?
Our God is way bigger than our personal problems or even our political problems. We need not get worried or worked up for fear He cannot handle it! Your job and mine is to do the next thing He asks us to do. (Be honest about it – no “games”.) Then we can trust that He will take care of the rest.
Some may think, “The situation is too big. There is nothing I can do. It is hopeless!” I rebuke that thinking. It is never hopeless. You can always humble yourself and pray, seeking His will for your next decision and turning from what you know is wrong. God has promised good results will follow.
Regular readers of this column have recognized that that is often a few weeks ahead of today’s headlines. I believe that is because I pray before writing and seek His topic. Often I will try to write on my own initiative. Nothing comes!
I teach an online course in Biblical principles of American government (i.e. direction, regulation, control, restraint). I have seen the significance in the lives of the students.
Take God out of anything and it dies!
On the other hand, discover God in a thing and it blossoms. Few are interested in a course on “government”. When such a course reveals God’s hand in history and His inspiration and reason in governing, the subject comes alive! It becomes incredibly significant!
The next course begins in 8 weeks on June 6th for 3 months. We use Skype video for interactive class sessions (students see and hear one another). Class is Monday and Wednesday morning at 9 Pacific time. Make-up classes, one-on-one are always available.
Most adults know kids that “don’t have a clue.” If you are one of them, please pray about attending the course with them. Classes are usually half adult and half teens. I guarantee it will be inconvenient. Everything of value has a price! I also guarantee it will be worth the time you invest. There is a tuition, don’t worry about that. Rather, ask the Lord if this is for you and / or your teen.
You will need a few weeks to obtain texts. I hope you will call or e-mail me to discuss the course.
For His-story & government
