Shining Through the Process

8 01 2016

2016 calendarLast time we explored a prophetic word for 2016 and the truth that God intends to work in and through each of us in 2016, so allow God’s light to shine! Today we will begin exploring this mystery of letting your light shine.


“For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.  But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.  We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;  persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”

2Co 4:6 -9


The body of Yeshua is facing some huge challenges in 2016. For CJM the first of these challenges is in painting the 20×20Ott in Salem OTT (Oregon Tabernacle Tent) foundation which is made up of over a dozen T-11 plywood and 2×4 pieces that come together like a giant jigsaw puzzle, so we are going to paint a map on the foundation to aid in assembly while providing needed protection from the elements.


To say the least this is a huge job. We have been working for two months getting things together, first wrestling to embrace God’s vision for the project (I am coming to understand how Noah felt), second a place to paint the foundation, then finding the right paint for both sides of the foundation. All these things have to be in place before we start. Then we have to find a crew to paint?


2 Corinthians 4 tells us we have a treasure (the truth of our messiah) in clay jars (our human bodies), and as I have worked to conserve my energy to make it through. We have been hard pressed on every side during this process, but like diamonds there was a purpose, that we wouldn’t buy the wrong paint! God has sustain us, encouraged us, as we prepare to paint next week I rejoice that we will see the OTT foundation ready for the 2016 season!
