“So let us know, let us press on to know the LORD. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth” (Hosea 6:3, NASB).

On my 50th birthday ~ When I arrived home this message was on the voice mail.
Stay focused. Stand firm. The LORD sent you to Portland, Oregon. Press Forward. Press the Sword Forward. The LORD has positioned you as HIS center point.
Upon hearing it, I fell upon my face before the LORD and wept. There are moments in our lives when a word of encouragement is the most precious gift as our tested faith is being rebuilt. Beverly did not know it was my birthday. She did not know that my position was center point when I played college basketball (Pacific University) years ago, nor did she even know that I currently lived in Gresham, Oregon, a Portland suburb where I lived from 2000-2007 completing an intercessory assignment of the LORD.

"Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen" (Jude 1:24-25, NASB).
