Last Friday was a cloudy, rainy day. But by about 6 p.m. the sun came out, and it was outreach time. I needed sunshine in my soul to go visiting door-to-door with fellow AFM missionary George Tooray, looking for people who were interested in studying the Bible. I praise the Lord that He supplied just the help I needed through prayer and faith.
God has been teaching me more about faith lately. “The knowledge of what the Scripture means when urging upon us the necessity of cultivating faith, is more essential than any other knowledge that can be acquired. We suffer much trouble and grief because of our unbelief, and of our ignorance of how to exercise faith. We must break through the clouds of unbelief. We cannot have a healthy Christian experience, we cannot obey the gospel unto salvation, until the science of faith is better understood, and until more faith is exercised. There can be no perfection of Christian character without that faith that works by love, and purifies the soul” (Review and Herald, October 18, 1898). Praise the Lord, He helped me to cast my cares upon Him (1 Peter 5:7).
He guided me also to Joshua 1:5, 6: “As I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Be strong and of a good courage…” That was just what I needed! Knowing that Jesus was with me, I was ready to go out door-to-door. God fulfilled His word to us, and four people took Bible studies from George and me!
God will use you to witness for Him. What ministry has He laid on your heart? By faith, “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee” (Isa. 60:1).
