I have come to the conclusion lately that in order to embrace our life purpose and destiny we must clearly understand how God sees us. We can easily be misled by faulty perceptions and old thinking in need of transformation. When we consider the true heart of God, let us not be misguided and detoured by the blame game the world is placing upon God. Frankly, we can expend all our energy and efforts in what we can see rather than in what God has promised.
As more and more Men of Issachar affiliations are springing up, it is so important that we never forget the foundation of our identity and our astonishment at how great and awesome our God is. As Men of Issachar, our past only echoes how great and matchless He has been in our development. Our present only reflects our current understanding of our purpose at hand. But the future is a brand new invitation to discover and explore the purposes for which we were created…our mission, if you will.
I have been a part of Aglow for almost twenty-five years, and as most men, I began by accompanying my wife to the various Aglow Lighthouse meetings and conferences. Just like many, I tasted of the rich anointing and vision for something more than what I was currently experiencing, and Aglow has been a major influence on my life. Amazed at the worship and the rich teaching, I was even more intrigued by the anointing and the mantle that has been resting upon our President, Jane Hansen Hoyt, and her ability to hear the heart of God and courageously step out into that word.
