Special Assignment

Each of us has a special assignment. We have each be given a life to lead “that the Lord has assigned.” Each of us has a different assignment, a different circumstance, a different condition.

It’s No Time

There are moments when an opportunity pops up and it is not necessarily best for us to jump on board. When Paul was in Ephesus there was a position that was open. They wanted Paul to stay there to spend more time ministering. He declined – someone else then filled the position at Ephesus. Is […]
