How great is our God

Sing with me, how great is Our God

All the world will see

How great Is Our God!

We just sang that before the Christian Living Class 1 here in the Summer Enrichment Program in Silang, Cavite. 108 campers and 42 staff are here right now. Little did I know that as soon as I check my email, there is something waiting for me.

I mentioned in the previous blog about this very simple email I sent to this very high ranking official in the country. Well I got an answer from the public information officer of this branch of the government – with the attached pdf response from this very distinguished gentleman.

I was very humbled when he said yes. I felt so small and so privileged for his very generous response. He is willing to attend the Conference and address this gathering of Christian men.

I could not even begin to describe my excitement. Thank you Lord for this favor. Thank you for giving us this grace. For allowing us to experience the testimony of this well-respected brother.

Thank You Lord. Because You hear our prayers. More than this, you visit us. You know us intimately. You came from heaven to become one of us. You visited us. Lord, you are just a prayer away. You listen when we call. You listen even when our words fail us and could only utter our groans. Thank You Lord… thank you for your favor. Thank you for surpassing our expectations and showering us with your grace! And You are the majestic God, may we always be in AWE of your presence. May we anticipate with so much expectation and excitement your indwelling presence in our lives!

I emailed someone today inviting him to address our Mens’ Conference next month.

I still shake my head at the “audacity” of what I just did. This man holds one of the top 5 Most influential positions in the Philippine government. Who am I to just open my Outlook and start a new message to an an email address that I had not used for more than 4 years?

As part of the organizers, this inspiration came this afternoon as I was looking at some pictures taken from an international leadership conference held in Singapore four years ago. God blessed me with the opportunity to attend there with other Filipino leaders from different institutions, and for almost a month, a brotherly prayerful connection was formed.

I remember even sending this very important brother a prayer request. His response is still in my INBOX. Now four years later, I am sending this invitation. I even attached some of our pictures for him to remember who I was…

Lord God, thank you that through the years you always recognize us. Lord you never change. You never forget. We don’t even have to do a “remember me”? with you because You even know the number of hairs on our heads… Through Christ, who in the fullness of Your grace, You gave all the spiritual blessings we could ask for, out of the lavished love you have for us. Lord, I am sending that email in faith. You are the one who can open the doors of the high and mighty people of the land. Please grant us your favor and allow us to hear this brother address the men in that conference. I am not highly connected Lord with the powers-that -be, but I know that You, the author and finisher of our salvation, the GOD who stretched the curtains of the universe, are willing and able to do beyond what we can ask or imagine.


I humbly ask for your favor Lord. To please grant us the opportunity to hear this man you have raised, to speak before us. Thank you. I will wait for your wonderful favor.


In Jesus’ name.

Amen
