“If we walk in the light as He is in the light…” 1 Jn 1:7
Often God’s Light only shines out far enough to show you the next step of obedience. Several years ago the Holy Spirit said, “Get to Haiti, Now!” With that word, a handful of men flew into Haiti the next day. On the porch (a second story porch with no roof and beautiful view of the sky) that night we asked God for a revelation of what we were to do. The Spirit spoke to our hearts and said, “The only revelation I’m going to give you tonight is that I’m not going to give you a revelation.” That was good enough for us and we went to bed.
The next morning after waking up, we went back out to the porch wondering what adventure would unfold for the day. We looked up into the Haitian tropical sky and there was only one small cloud “about the size of a man’s fist.” We all felt the witness of the Spirit that we were to follow the cloud and so off we went. It was an amazing journey that led us into a riverbed, where we followed the word of Joshua to erect a memorial out of rock. While building the memorial, some Haitians began to gather and we shared the gospel! Then, we went to a nearby village and rejoiced with them.
What’s the point?
