Sunnyvale News

Another bright sunshining day on September 15 here in the heartland at Sunnyvale. The humidity dropped for about 36 hours last week and made things some better. The harvest is going on at a good rate and ahead of most years. Folks are coming in for Sunday School and it appears that most classes are up in attendance. Our lesson was about the Exodus of God's people out of Egyptian bondage. Just 45 days after God leading them out and showing His power in many different ways. The people were murmurring against Moses and Aaron because they were hungry and claiming Moses brought them out there to die. These are folks that every day have a Pillar of cloud to guide them by day and a pillar of fire to protect them by night. Usually God would use Moses as a tool to bring an answer to His people but this time He said I will handle the situation where they will know that I am God. So He sent quail in the evening and manna in the mornings. He still provides and cares for us today. Shaking hands and seeing a great amount of folks but missing some others. Several deaths in our community area along with sickness. We had a great choir and Janice selected some wonderful songs to sing ending with Mansion on the Hilltop. Sandy Allen sang Cleanse Me as special music accompanied by Janice on the piano and it was wonderful. Scripture was Romans 8:26 - 31 using just the last part of verse 31: If God be for us who can be against us. You can plug any circumstance or situation into that and it still comes out the same. I used some O.T. cases of Joseph, Moses, Elijah, and Elisha and then some Kings of Israel that all got into impossible looking situations but God was for them and brought relief and victory. I don't know what is going on in your life but I can tell you this "If God be for you who can be against you".

 Sunday Night our attendance was down some because of a funeral visitation during our worship time. The back row of the choir was completely full but the front row had one lonely person standing there - my wife. But she put heart and soul into her singing and I compliment the front row for sounding so good. There was no special tonight. Our scripture was James 3:16-18 where James talked about wisdom from above. The way the scripture reads it leads me to believe there are at least 2 places that wisdom comes from. That from above is that which is from God. The other is from the world are satan. God's wisdom leads to purity, gentleness, no partiality, no hypocrisy and it is that which will bare fruit of peace and joy. On the news is  a crime by several high profile Hollywood people who cheated by getting their children into presitgues college by giving money to change SAT scores etc. What do you think would ever give thought to such action. It is not wisdom that is from above but it is worldly wisdom. Our society has a death grip on such action. In the Candidates for President on television Thursday night about all I heard was people that liked to hear themselves talk. I heard no wisdom from above but just a flurry of words that most could not back up. As Christians the Lord expects us to live our lives and our tongues with wisdom from above and change our families, communities, and world with such.
