This is a letter to our friends –
Water from the rock
Each morning, before anything else, Fran and I sit by the window and chat a moment over coffee, then we read a few chapters aloud from our one year Bible. After that, each of us prays aloud.
This morning we read from the book of Numbers about Moses being told to get water in the wilderness for the people by speaking to a rock. It is a sad story because Moses was frustrated with the people and struck the rock with his staff in anger rather than speaking to it in faith as God had directed him to do.
The story taught me to be patient with disappointments and not to get out ahead of where God is directing me. God was often frustrated with the same folks that frustrated Moses, but that was God’s choice not one for Moses.
Then, as we finished reading, we prayed. This morning as I prayed aloud, the words seemed to be delivered to me as I spoke. “The ‘rock’ represents California. Speak to it in faith (Not anger and frustration). I want the people to see the power of the ‘word’ spoken in faith.”
I take that to mean there is going to be a tsunami of spiritual outpouring from within California. Truth, righteousness, repentance, and faith will gush forth from families, churches, homes, businesses, communities. California will be shaken to its core! The aftershocks will shake our nation and the world!
Perhaps our, “Honoring the Vision” event on Saturday, September 23rd, at Destiny Church in Rocklin, honoring the pioneers of the “Foundation for American Christian Education” who have been teaching about God’s hand in human history for fifty-seven years will be a part of that awakening.
