Yesterday, Dr. John Watson joined us to lead morning devotions. He's the pastor of Standale Baptist Church in Standale, MI, and one of our pastoral advisors.
These pastors serve as a sounding board on proposed programs and theological issues. They also nurture us through these times around God's word and prayer. We are very grateful to God for their input.
Pastor Watson took us to Exodus 15 where the people of Israel learned that God is the One who heals. We asked God to help us recognize difficulties as tests of faith, and that those tests are opportunities to cry out to Him and see Him provide. May we be more like Moses in that, and not by like the people who complained!
