I was reflecting on the last message I preached as pastor of the church plant. I spoke on the subject of conflict resolution from the perspective of how Paul and Barnabas separated and went different directions to spread the gospel due to a conflict over John Mark who was a relative of Barnabas. The conflict was not pleasant, but the divide actually furthered the cause of Christ. Paul, in the end of his life, wanted to see John Mark because he was profitable for ministry.
A few weeks later, I headed a different direction. Some of you fellow believers have foresight into seeing a change that might take place. I did not want to admit that I was sensing a change, but God was preparing me.
One thing I have learned – Do not suppress when God is giving you insight into the future. Let me make it clear that I am not a psychic. I cannot see into the future. God’s direction from the Scriptures, His Spirit, and godly counsel has helped me navigate through many seasons of life. I know it’s easier said than done, but trust His leadership even when you cannot understand it. If you can’t, work through it. God understands exactly where you are and is patient with you while you find the way.
