Yes He Can!

And he said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat Mark 6:31KIMG0340

It’s funny the places where Jesus can take us out to dinner. The side of a Samaritan well, a beach by the sea of Galilee and a desolate region miles from the nearest village, all were chosen by our master as a perfect place to dine.

Desolate regions, beaches and wells are all places outside of our GPS satellite reception. We aren’t sure why we are there at first, but God makes His appointments according to His own rule-book. He sees from far away when we are dangerously closing in on selfishness, depression or exhaustion. The invitations which He sends out to us individually each carry the design of the universe creator and no two are alike.

Maybe and most of all God chooses those places so we can come to the end of ourselves, begin to see the needs of others and discover Him as the master chef, who has set us a table in the wilderness.

They spoke against God, saying, “Can God spread a table in the wilderness? Psalm 78:19

In Jesus hands that day in Mark’s gospel with His disciples in the wilderness, that question was answered 5000 times: Yes He can! Yes He can! Yes He can!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
