PHILIPPIANS 1:21 FOR ME TOLIVE IS CHRIST TO DIE IS GAIN.
Paul was saying that as long as he lived he would serve Christ no matter what else happens even death, and to die well that is his pay day to be absent from the body is to be present with the lord, he lived and breathed every word.
I have taken those word to heart every since I became a Christian. I grew up in a poor family the oldest son of a carpenter I was trained at early age to fellow my fathers trade, I use to complain about that hard work but as I grew up I an so thankful god gave me a father that would teach me the trade.Fir it was that trade that allowed me to serve the Lord in the ministry he later called me to. I was able to serve small churches that could not afford a minister. Many times I had no money for gas to put in my old car or for bus fair two or from a church field,
I always believe that he would make a way and he did as many times as I shook hands after a service people would put money in my hands many a time just enough to make it back home or to another service, Where ever God wanted me he made a way ,Praise God He is the Way Maker. I have always had a lot of faith in Gods Word and believed it to be totally true and no man could change my mind., I believe that he can and would provide for me as he did all those people in bible times, The bib le says he is the same yesterday today and tomorrow ,I believe it and that settles it. I could write a book about the many times He has provide for4 me when I had no way of doing for myself. I just felt and still do so close to god that I can just reach out and he would take my hand and lead me to the right place or person that could help me in his service, One experience I like to tell is how god took care of many problems at one time for myself and some young married couple with children that felt led to go with me one summer on a three month revival curse over Arkansas. I had been praying for some people to join me in this tour of revival, I had no money and had to leave my job to do this as well. With no help no truck no tent no anything I prayed and several young families with talent in music and others area’s came to me and ask to go along saying God told them to join me this year, Wonderful right, How was I going to feed and take care of all theses people get rooms and food and everything they needed, I gathered them together and we prayed every day for gods guideline. We routed out the revival teams road map for the towns we
Were going to and prayed. Suddenly a miracle started to happen, A local truck rental place send me a truck and a check for the gas for our route, thank you lord, the following day a tent company sent a tent and chairs and all equipment for the tent and said god told him to help me, I was beside my se3lf with wonder and joy, then other things started to arrive at my home public address equipotent and musical instruments we had almost every thing truly god is good I began to wonder as Satan put doubt in my mind about the other needs food and epically for the babies three of them still on baby food and how would the team member get there rent payed while we were away? Would they loose their jobs while away with me ? I was told by my employer that if I left for three months I would not have A JOB. I felt lead of the lord and left, the day before we planned to leave garber food company and Kellogg’s and other places sent us food to cover all our needs and more. I had never seen such miracles happen before. We left and god won many battles for us as souls were saved and people blessed, At the end of the tour we all came back more miracles took place all the rent and things were paid for the team members by god we know of no other to do it, they all went back to work and I well I got my job back with a raise and a higher position in the company THAK YOU GOD. ALL BY FAITH I HAVE ALWAYS SERVEED BY FAITH, NO CHURCH OR BUSINESS SUPPORT NO CHRUCH ASSOCIATION JUST MY FATHER IN Heaven always on time all the time for what ever the need, he has never given me all I wanted but has always give me what I needed to do the job to live to make it from day to day as that is what he will do for you to if you trust truly trust in his word and in his power’
