John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone.

Beginning in 2008 the vision and bible school that God so graciously gave Wade Taylor beginning in 1968 came to an abrupt end, falling into the ground and dying.

We now wait for God to raise up and bring forth His seed of promise in another, that the vision fail not.

“Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” Gen 18:25b.

Within the minds of many Christians are questions, such as, “Why this, or when that?” If (seemingly) there is no answer, we must place these things in the hand of the Lord and look to Him alone.

When we consider that the Lord created all the universe, which continues in its proper course and is sustained by Him, we recognize that all this is far beyond any understanding that we might have. Therefore we must trust Him with all those things that we do not understand.

My wife and I share Bible reading and prayer each day. We often ask each other questions about things that we do not understand. The answer is always the same. We must trust the Lord and believe that He will do right concerning each of these things.

Some become angry with the Lord because He does not do as they feel He should in a particular circumstance. But again, we must come back to trusting the integrity of the Lord, and the fact that He both knows and is interested in our concerns. The word tells us,

“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not
one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father's
will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many
sparrows.” Matt 10:29-31 NKJV.

Therefore, we must be diligent in telling others that the Lord loves them; That He will save them and answer their prayers. I was saved while standing in front of the barn door on my fathers farm. I had been thinking about eternal things and looked up into the sky and said out loud, “Can a sinner like me know You and be ready for heaven?” I heard the Lord reply, “Give Me your heart.” I said, “OK Lord,” and I was marvelously saved.

I was so changed that I told my dad about what had happened. While plowing in a field with a team of horses, he also was saved. A short time later my mother, and then my brothers and sisters were saved.

I have served the Lord in ministry for 64 years. I can truly say that the Lord has been faithful to me in every situation. Therefore, I no longer have questions of doubt.

I have learned that the Lord will do what is right in every circumstance.
