Today's church The Lord's guiding hand By JIMMY BLAIR Many people of today believe or feel they are in good health. They are indispensable in their work, home or business. Also many people believe that, if anything happen to them, everything will go wrong. They just have to be there. They can't take time off. They rush, fret and hurry around—actually getting in other people's way. Suddenly you become ill. Your job, business, family and others have to get along without you. Later while worrying about all of the above things—you find out that the Lord guides, directs and sees you through experiences which you thought you could not endure. It was difficult but a good lesson for you to learn. Such an education is hard on your pride. It makes you humble. It takes something out of you and yet it teaches you that the Lord can get along without you and it makes you realize, you must learn to depend upon Him. You read in Exodus 14:13 that when the Israelites stood before the sea with the Egyptians behind them and both the desert and mountains on each side, Moses said, "Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord." We need the clouds, dark days, storms and rain just as much as we need the sunshine to make us know that the Lord is very much alive and we need Him. And God who is molding our lives, seeking to make us like and understand Jesus Christ, is the One who knows what is best for us. When we long to do something important, probably spectular, then the Lord places us in a position of inactivity and causes us to learn the lesson of quietness and stillness. That, I believe, is one of the greatest tests of Christian faith. According to the Scripture, "Faith is the substance of things hoped for evidence of things not MOUNT MORIAH BAPTIST CHURCH, 28th Street and Avenue K, celebrates its 34th anniversary with "Homecoming Day" services at 3 p.m. Sunday.

The fact that you cannot understand at times why God deals with you in the way He does is for the purpose of making you exercise your faith. H you laid aside everything and asked this question: why must I suffer? Why can't I be like others? Remember this: God's perfect plan you cannot see, but some day you'll understand. You .exercise faith when you accept the promise of Almighty God. Cargill appointed The Rev.
