Be still and know I am God
Friend, I am glad to share with you just before I leave for Ambon. This is a time of God’s favor for you.
There’s no doubt in my mind, I know for a fact, that I have the best and most faithful partners in the world. Our hearts beat together with the heartbeat of God… FOR SOULS.
By the time you receive this letter we are only a couple of days from the Gospel Campaign in Ambon, Indonesia.
This is an intense season of outreach. Right after Ambon, our team moves on to Assam, India. Hundreds of thousands of souls are at stake. God put a word in my spirit for these campaigns… and FOR YOU!
“Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10).
Have you ever felt like you don’t know what to do? Have you ever run out of money? Or been up against a wall with no way out? What do we do? Pray more? Read the Bible more? Fast? What?
All these are good things, but above all, practice this word from God; “Be still, and know that I am God”. What does it mean practically?
You know it’s a lot easier to make your body be still than it is to quiet your thoughts and imaginations. We can never fight thoughts with thoughts. Just telling yourself, “Stop thinking negative thoughts” won’t help. It will make those thoughts of unbelief even stronger. No, here is the key:
“Be still”. Stop everything and say, “I know Jesus put away my sins, my sicknesses and my every lack. I am complete in Him, identified with Christ. As Jesus is, so am I in this world.” As you meditate on Christ, you won’t have to look for peace; the sweet inner peace and stillness will be there.
“Know” means to “ be certain”. Know that God loves you personally. Know that you are “more than a conqueror”. Perceive with certainty that you are complete in Jesus Christ, lacking nothing.
“That He is God”. This is beyond head knowledge; you know by revelation that your God is the Most High – the God who is more than enough.
Please, don’t focus on your own needs, or on the financial needs of World Impact Ministries right now.
We are not running away from reality; finances are still needed for the follow up this week, and then there’s the huge challenge of the Great Gospel Campaign in Assam, India. In fact, your seed offerings are vitally important.
Then, you have needs; maybe physically, spiritually or in a relationship. But please, don’t focus on any of those needs right now.
That’s right; don’t focus on the need of World Impact Ministries, or even your own personal needs. Instead, “Be still and know that I am God”.
Know that God is God in you. You have an edge in life, because all the wisdom, ability, inventions, solutions and miracle provision is in you because Christ is in you!
This will also affect your giving. Be still and know how to give and how to receive. We may know our prayer needs, but it’s quite another matter to know where and what to give. Know how to sow your financial seed in fertile soil.
When your seed offering comes from knowing that your giving is in harmony with God’s heartbeat, there’s great confidence and great satisfaction.
Know that your seed offering results in historical outreaches for souls.
Know that the message I preach is without compromise, and that your giving makes it possible for multitudes to hear and receive that Gospel.
Know that you receive the same reward for sending me to the unreached multitudes, as I do for preaching this marvelous Good News.
Know that God loves you more than our minds can ever understand.
Know also that I appreciate you dearly. Thank you for your important partnership this month.
Love in Christ,

You paid for the stadium, the shipping of material for new believers, advertising in newspapers, radio and television and so much more. Thank You!Give Your Best Seed HereMy Prayer Request
