Going Beyond What We Ask or Think

       Just got home from another amazing youth night this evening. The Lord has really been blessing us here lately in ways beyond our own futile expectations. I am constantly reminded that any expectation outside of a supernatural God is bound for disappointment, because it will always miss an appointment with the Divine.        
       Tonight I was so encouraged to see, in a little apartment in Lauttasaari, over forty young Finns gathered together to fellowship with God and hear a Word from His Throne. We had a guest speaker from Baltimore, Joe Lavoie, who has been a real encouragement to us here this past week. I continue to be amazed when I see how God uses different people in the Body to speak words of wisdom. Without even knowing situations at hand, the Holy Spirit fills their "open mouths" with specific and direct words to cut and to heal. During the message there are times where you can feel the Holy Spirit put His finger on something and say, "This is not of me. Let me deal with it. Let me bring you to a large place through the cross." It's amazing. That's what God is doing here.

Pray for more Bible School students next semester, and for young people here to burn with a consuming fire that compels them to go! Let us not waste our short time here on this earth! Let's redeem it!
