This semester is getting better and better! We have been reading the book of Exodus. This past week we read about the ten plagues in Egypt. The Lord used both Pharaoh and Moses to gain a group of people that express the Lord.

We went over the matter of the Lord’s sovereignty and our responsibility. The Lord arranges our situations in order to change us as a people. All we need to say is, “Yes, Lord! Gain my heart more today!” and He will gain us more each day. The Lord needs our cooperation.

The Lord has a will. His will is to gain a group of people that love Him and express Him. Pharaoh was disobedient to the Lord. The Lord used Pharaoh to show the Israelites (God’s people) how vain the world (Egypt) was they lived in. This is a picture of the world we live in today.

Just like the Isrealites, we as God’s people, have a vision of what the Lord is doing today. But, we cannot pursue the Lord alone. We need to pursue with those! We pursue with those around us in our classes and dormitories. This is the Lord’s arrangement.

Thank You, Lord for what You are doing on the University of Houston campus! Build us together!

2 Timothy 2:22 “But flee youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”
