Today I am greeting you with the Words that Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke to His Disciples –
“My Peace I leave with you; My Peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid”. John 14.7.
These were the words I shared with you last week. Because of your replies; I knew they had to be my opening words today.
Two Colleagues, one in Surrey, one in The Met are suffering from Pneumonia, not Covid related. Prayers please.
The Prayer Letter goes out to our Brothers and Sisters in Surrey, Sussex and The Met. I send a copy and then they are sent on to the CPA Groups. I wrote to the Representative in The Met, as I sent last week’s PL and referred to the weariness I was feeling and of which I am aware of, as I visit many Departments here in Surrey.
He replied to me with the following words-
“Praise be that we have a God that never gets weary!”
As I read those words, I was reminded of a Service held in London by The Christian Police a few years ago, where the writer of that message above asked me to close the Service in Prayer, just as it started!! “Yikes what am I going to say, no time to prepare …” Immediately to mind came a scripture I put to music some years before, (I did not sing it), but I read it as a proclamation over everyone there. Here it is below. Indeed “God does not grow weary”.
Is: 40. 29-31.
Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
In His Grip.
