During praise and worship, we proclaimed that You (Yehsua) are bigger than any battle we face. You are better than anything we chase. You are the King of our hearts. Gary Reedy came up to deliver the torah portion, Toldot, Family History, Genesis 25:19 – 28:9. Isaac entreated God to have a son, and He gave Isaac two. Esau was the hairy firstborn and Jacob came out second, holding his brother’s heel. Birthrights were sold, wives were called sisters, and kings saw how much God blesses His people! Wow… who needs soap operas when you have the Bible. We praised God for veterans, and prayed for cysts, before Brandon came up to teach on the importance of praying for our leaders. We must set aside time to intercede; to stand in the gap and implore God to uplift all the leaders in our faith circles. From the small group leader to the senior pastor, pray for those who serve, and do it now.
