When the Lord brings something to your attention more than once, you should definitely pay attention. Earlier this year, the text of Psalm 20 was before me, and my heart grabbed it as my own testimony of how I have come to another year.
Psalm 20:6-8 Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright.
Today the text was before me again in my morning devotions. And as the first of July fast approaches, so does my anniversary as Pastor of CPCC — July 1995 to the present. And this longevity in ministry here is not by anything less than the grace of God to me and to many. Praise be to the Lord our God, the Maker of heaven and earth, the Redeemer of all those who belong to the Savior Jesus Christ.
