One thought on “Divine Sovereignty: The Fuel of Death-Defying Missions”
3 things happened when I listened to this. (For more than a decade I’m plagued by a “spastic” colon, lots of pain, very tired, always sick) 1. I heard every word. I can hardly follow a movie or read more than one page of a book at a time, but David Platt got through, even tho this is advanced material, not easy. 2. Minutes before I opened this page I said to God: I miss Mary (my sister). She called. 3. Instead of one sandwich for breakfast, which I have to eat at great discomfort being sick, I ate 2.
This may not sound like much to you, but it’s been a long time since I was touched so deeply. I’m sure that many will be touched even more deeply and gather courage to do something they’ve been putting off for a long time, knowing we are being loved, not needed, but being loved…
Today was a good day. Amen.
