For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. 2Chronicles 16:9

Those of you who have followed my writing may be surprised to read that I am excited and hopeful for the church in 2021; including that portion of her who resides in America. I often have to remind myself of this fact, but it is nevertheless true.

There are two reasons for my hopefulness. First, I believe the wife of the Lamb is making herself ready, and she will be perfectly beautiful (Revelation 19:7-8). Secondly, I believe the storms and chaos God is allowing (creating?) give testimony to His continued long-suffering and persistence for her and His Son.

It is no coincidence that 2021 promises to be as chaotic and challenging as 2020. Nor is it an accident that storms are lining up like tropical depressions during hurricane season. Who can imagine how long the season will last, or how severe the storms will be? Only God knows! However, regardless of length and severity, His children rest secure, believing He will use the storms and chaos for our good (Romans 8:28).

Indeed, God will use the storms and chaos of this decade to dramatically transform the individuals, families, and fellowships who keep their eyes focused on the Lord and their minds set on things above. Our prime objective, for ourselves and those in our spheres of influence, must be our maturation in the Lord. Moving up and forward is the only way we avoid wasting the pain and discomfort storms and chaos introduce into our lives.

As I write this, the Spanish version of The Map Maker is being printed in Ecuador, and details are being finalized for two business leaders’ conferences, and a pastors’ conference (the week of March 5th). We continue to be amazed at God’s providence and grace in taking this humble book to another country and culture. We are grateful for your support in our part of this good work.

Speaking of being amazed, I encourage you to consider your identity as a follower of Jesus Christ; not from your perspective, but from His. He said you are greater than the greatest prophet (Luke 7:28), created to do greater things than even He did (John 14:12). What must He have imagined for those that would follow Him? What exploits filled His anticipation for us?

This is a portion of what the Lord arranged and used me to share with the third year students at the Atlanta School of Ministry; as part of their training for missions in the workplace. The Lord uses this lesson to speak into the hearts and spirits of His disciples, what He has created them to be; for Him, to the Body of Christ and to the world. You can find the complete lesson in Map 17 of The Map Maker. Let me know if you want an electronic copy of the lesson.

The series “These Sayings of Mine” has been completed. To catch everyone up, I have included links to the chapter summaries below. The Woes of Luke and the Sermon on the Mount Harmony round out the series.

These Sayings of Mine – Chapter Five Summary

These Sayings of Mine – Chapter Six Summary

These Sayings of Mine – Chapter Seven Summary

I hope to pull these articles together in an eBook. If you are interested in sponsoring that effort, please let me know.

In the meantime, please continue to pray for our efforts in Ecuador. God has an amazing plan for the business leaders and pastors in South America. He intends to use them to do the greater than works; as He transforms their spheres of influence.

Pray also for our displaced sisters and brothers in the Middle East. Hundreds of thousands have been martyred or driven out of Iraq alone. We are to remember them as if chained with them in their suffering (Hebrews 13:3).

God’s purpose for inLight Consulting is beyond human capability.  We are desperately dependent on Him; and would have it no other way.

Share the truths you find here with the leaders in your life;  it will make them free.
