This past Friday I was feeling frustrated with myself and the path my faith has taken me on. When I share my faith with the people I know, it usually ends up that they want to show me the error of my ways and reacquaint me with the “true” faith. It can be a very frustrating situation; mostly because those are the people God has called me to reach. Friday I was feeling particularly discouraged because of some emails I had received attempting to correct my wayward ideas. I was questioning whether the path I was on was the right one or not. While I was polishing up my Sunday sermon, I really felt God visit me. It is hard to explain how that feels, but all of a sudden I knew that something good was going to happen to me in the near future. That evening when the local news came on I switched the channel over to TBN’s affiliate channel here in Kenya. To be honest with you, I do not enjoy watching TBN most of the time, but anything is better then local Kenyan news. (Without cable or satellite service, our choices are very limited.) Joyce Myers was on, and I decided to see what she had to say. Well to make a long story short, she spoke on just being yourself and receiving your confidence from God. I was stunned. Could God speak to me through Joyce Myers? I had read one of her books before and just did not like it at all, so I did not have much expectation that God could or would speak through her. However, he did and I was very encouraged to be myself. God wants me to be Johnny and not worry about what people think about me. Please do not take this as an endorsement for Joyce Myers or TBN, I just want you to be alert. For God can come through the strangest and most unexpected places.
