In my quest to learn more, I find that there are many resources to acquire the information I am thirsting to know. I can go to my own library of books, magazines, library or the internet. Where should I begin today to learn more about my history?
Today is Sunday, the day that we all are to go to church and worship our Lord. Well, the Lord Jesus may not be your Lord and Savior, but He is my Lord and Savior. Sunday according to the Christian faith, is the day of rest. I have attended service today, participated in Praise and Worship and I have heard the word of the Lord. One of the things that was spoken today was “See the Invisible”, Numbers 13:25-33. In the text we see the children of Israel were spying out the land, the promise land. Ten men were instructed to go to spy out the land and only 2 brought back a good report, Joshua and Caleb. Joshua and Caleb had a different spirit than the other men, they saw with their Faith. They saw the invisible and the impossible. They exercised their FAITH in GOD and stood on the word of the Lord. We are well able to take the land they said. My God, what great men of FAITH.
Reverend Martin Luther King Jr was a great man of FAITH. He saw what many people could not see, a America where African American people were accepted for who they are and not denied because of the color of their (our) skin. Not just African American people, but all people are to be accepted no matter the race, color or creed. He knew that he would not see what America is today, but he kept praying and setting the example. He won the Noble Peace Prize, he wrote books, he was a man of great stature. It is because of what he did that paved the wave for all people. Dr. King believed in non-violence. He knew that prayer would change things. You see not all were able to see the man of God down on his knees praying for his people, praying for America, praying for the world. It is when one is on their knees presenting themselves before Father God and humbly telling Him the problems of this world. Believing that God is able to do ALL things EXCEPT FAIL.
I do not profess to know it all, but I can say without a doubt in mine mind Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was a great man of FAITH. He was a true MAN of GOD. Not doubt about it!!
