Grace Walk Group Update

So the leaders of the Grace Walk Group in my town called me tonight! They had been on vacation and just returned tonight. I was so excited to see their names pop up on the caller ID. Their names are Butch and Decima and they all meet Tuesday evenings at 7:30. Butch told me that because I had already missed the first two Steve McVey videos that he would allow me to take the DVD home in order to get caught up. Very thankful for that. God is amazing...

I was speaking with Dave Lesniak on the phone tonight and he mentioned the Scripture in John 15:
"If you abide in Me and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you may bear much fruit and so prove to be My disciples."

Dave also mentioned that he actually knew Butch, but he knew him as a pastor in Anderson, S.C. I told him that Butch had told me tonight that he had been in Anderson on vacation all week and that Butch had been preaching this message for 16 years. So it turns out, we were talking about the same Butch. Amazing, huh? God really orchestrates stuff beautifully.

If you long for fellowship with brothers and sisters who understand the Grace of God in truth, tell God how you feel and ask Him. Don't let the enemy accuse you of being false or evil and that God won't answer your prayers. Just pray and ask God. Keep praying...don't try to force up faith. Just depend on Him.

God has opened a door and I'm so excited.

Matthew,

Haven't I told you to stay away from Dave??? LOL. Probably not because that's the last thing I would do to a person... he's truly a great encouragement.

Well, hey, that's AWESOME about the grace walk group! I'm really hoping you are able to find some new friends and have some rich fellowship and mutual encouragement with other like-minded saints.

It was great! I felt really comfortable in their home and Butch and Decima are really hospitable and kind. We watched the Steve McVey video and had coffee afterwards. I sort of felt stupid because they were giving me directions to a grace Church in Fort Mill, SC and having no license, they might as well be speaking jibberish lol. I am terrible with directions as it is.

But other than that, it was great!

God is awesome.

Tell me about it! The Lord Jesus opened a door for me today to preach the Gospel of grace to Wayne. Someone was definitely praying. God was making His appeal to Wayne through me though, entreating Wayne to come in from the darkness. I pray that the Spirit would reveal the truth to him and that the Spirit would give him a change of mind toward God and faith in Jesus Christ. Let it be the Spirit's work.

Praise God!

I love watching Goliath fall and the young lions come roaring out of the gates with the sword of the Lord and in the strength and power of the Holy Spirit.

Grace upon grace,

Brian

Sounds like Papa has provided again!
Can I admit that I do not know exactly what this Grace Walk group is. Can you give a brief explanation?

This was a great encouragement from you, and I will take it to heart. I will begin to seriously ask Papa for true friends and real fellowship. I need that.
