Devotions 16-04-07

Ps 84:12
O Lord of hosts, how blessed is the man who trusts in You!

We had a great team retreat in Roosta with Stella, Piret and Robert. It was our second disciple seminar retreat. Each one seems to get a little better and we draw closer to each other and have more clarity in what we should be doing in reaching the people of Estonia. We had a great time on our way back to Tallinn when we stopped at the ruins of an old monastery in a very small town in the country.

Yesterday Lou and I took the day off and had a good time in prayer walking along the beach in Pirita. We prayed for our Estonian team and for the work of God in Estonia. We ended up in Kadriog at the Park Cafe and had a relaxing time before heading home.

Yesterday was also a tragic event in the US with the shooting at Virginia Tech and 33 young students were killed and 29 injured by a lone gunman. Oh, Lord use this to wake up students in our country to the brevity of life and the need to place their trust in God.

So the verse today is very important to remember. I must keep putting my trust in You and seeking to know You more personally.

There is no one more trustworthy than God. He is the Lord of hosts and He is in control of all the situations of life. He is not the author of evil but He is not surprised at what is happening but is trying to get everyone to wake up to the fact that life is short and I and everyone else must be ready to meet God in eternity. For sure I am not in control of things that happen to me. Lord minister to hurting people who have lost loved ones and need Your comfort.
