This is the generation of those who seek Him!

Psalm 24:6 in the New American Standard Bible (NASB)

I read this in my devotions this morning and thought about some of the despair and discouragement I see in posts by friends on Facebook… I thought about what we see on television and how we hear of persecution throughout the world… I thought “Can this be true today? Is ours the generation of those who seek Him?”… maybe it was true when David wrote it, but certainly not today. Then I thought about David’s environment: persecuted by Saul, hiding “from the wicked who do me violence, my deadly enemies who surround me.” (Psalm 17:9) Not very different from our situation today!

Sandy and I believe it is true today. We see God at work in our lives and in the lives of others; we see the fruit of those working to expand God’s Kingdom. Let me tell you what God has done through the men of Training Pastors International (TPI) in Central and South America, just in 2010: (does not include works in Peru or Miami)

Give thanks to God for what He is doing through these men! PRAY for these men! Pray for the students in our classes that their hunger for the Word continues to grow; pray that they remain faithful; pray that they be effective; pray that God’s will be done in Latin America! Can I get an Amen?
