“And I will be to her a wall of fire all around,” declares the Lord, “and I will be the glory in her midst.” – Zechariah 2:5 ESV
He answered and said, “But I see four men unbound, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods.” – Daniel 3:25 ESV
It has been a year since we last met and planned a weekend and over that time life has been full of ups and downs. As you know we had planned for Stephanie Hand to direct the #34th VN weekend end but God had other plans.
When I got that Stephanie felt God was asking her to step away and that I was being asked to step in. I knew right away this was God’s plan. I was ready to go that night and start calling the team, to share the theme God has give us for this weekend and catch up with you. I can’t wait to start building this team over the next few weeks.
The theme for VNTB #34 is Holy Fire. God’s Holy Fire can mean and be so many things. It can be the Fire of a refiner when He wants to burn away old things. It can be the presence of the Holy Spirit during powerful prayer. It can be the wall of Fire surrounding you when the enemy’s darts are flying in from every direction. It can be light when we walk by when we feel lost in the desert. It can be God standing next to you so you don’t get burned in the furnace. What this past year has shown me is without a doubt when things get Fiery, and they will get fiery, I want God in it with me.
His Fire is always loving, purifying, powerful and we have access to it through our salvation in Jesus and relationship with the Holy Spirit. Our weekend verses are: Zechariah 2:5 ESV and Daniel 3:25 ESV.
I want to invite you to join me and our youth director Sarah Ordonez (Sarah Brooks) in serving the candidates on this 34th Girls VN weekend. If you are as excited as I am to see everyone, go ahead and sign up to serve. Sarah and I are also praying about who God would have me ask to join the team and will reaching out over the next few weeks. Will, you Answer God’s call to serve these candidates and see what Holy Fire God has in store for us.
