A Word of Encouragement from our
Director of Missions
The more news I watch and the more reports I hear from Pastors in the churches, the harder it is to find encouragement. However, there is much encouragement to receive from God’s word and God’s work in the world. Whether the small world I live in (essentially one town, two counties and one state) or the whole world of which I’m a part. God’s Word is a phenomenal source of encouragement.
I remember reading about Joshua’s encouragement from the Lord in 1:5,9 when he was faced with the insurmountable task of leading thousands of people into the promised land. The Lord said, “No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you: I will not fail you or forsake you” (v. 5). What a thought! What power! What a promise! All he had to do was “be strong and courageous!” The Lord said to him...and says to us in our “little worlds,” “Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (v. 9).
So, no matter what the latest breaking news may be I have a great source of encouragement. Just as certainly as God has been with those servants who have gone on before us, He will be with us… “all the days of our lives.” And He will be with those servants who follow us. Be of courage! The work goes on!...and on!...and on!...until Jesus comes when we’ll all be gathered home.
Encouragingly Yours, Russell Cook
