This is a photo I took tonight just as the full “Hunter/Harvest” moon peeked through the blanket of thick clouds. It doesn't even look real! This serves to remind me of two things. One, the Hebraic calendar is lunar and it is a timetable the Lord set up. Two, just how surreal my leaving tomorrow for Israel really is! Glory! God does things so differently than we would, but He does them right.
When I think of all the miracles Jesus did, and how so many of them didn't make sense in the natural, it really amazes me. (Letting nets on the opposite side of the boat, pulling a coin out of a fish's mouth to pay taxes, spitting in mud and smearing it on a blind man's eyes, taking a stroll on water during a storm...and the examples go on and on!)
I am not sure how God's math works, but somehow when we send others on a mission trip, He rewards them as if they went. I love that because I can see how He has used my offerings given to others to advance the kingdom of heaven. God doesn't add blessings He multiplies them. He doesn't take them from you and give them to another; He gives them to all involved. It's amazing how His kingdom works!
If you believe the Lord is prompting you to sow into this trip, I would appreciate it, but I am certain He will do exceedingly more than you can imagine with it.
Honestly, what I'm seeing in the way the moon popped out for a brief moment, as if to say hello, God wants to say hello to us in a special way in the coming days. The word of God states that blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord. He is sending me to be in Jerusalem for 3 full weeks. What all the Father will do through this trip - only He knows. If He is calling you to be part of it, remember, my reward is your reward!
In the Father's love,
