Eagles’ Wings Ministry

A special thanks to Eagles’ Wings ministry for allowing us to use the lyrics to the spontaneous song “A Love Like This” in “A Heart After God”. We are also so thankful for the incredible story behind the song… “‘A Love Like This’… which “was a spontaneous song between JoAnn McFatter and Robert Stearn that happened on the spot at a live event,” and was not “pre-written by anyone.” http://eagleswings.to/home

Eagles’ Wings ministry “serves together to touch Israel and impact the nations of the world with the hope that comes from the God of love, to train the next generation of Christian leaders, and to unite and empower believers to make a positive difference in the world around them.” (http://eagleswings.to/aboutus/vision)

“The entire Bible is written about people that were extraordinary or unusually excellent and who deserve our attention because of being wonderfully different, and the Bible is also written about people who were the complete opposite, people who did everything, but bring glory to God. I believe God did that purposely so that we could study those people’s lives and have an example on how to live and how not to live. Out of the extraordinary men and women that the Bible talks about, they all have four things in common.

The first is that they all had their faults, from adultery, like David, to pride like Joseph. We all fall short of the glory of God-we all sin.

The second is that they all went through trials as God perfected them, matured them, and refined them; like Moses in the desert, to Jonah in the belly of the fish. These men and women were no different than any other human in the world in the fact that they still had sin in their lives and they still needed to be made more mature in God so that God could trust them with His works…

The third thing that these men and women have in common is that the men and women loved God, no matter their faults, with their whole hearts. They were all willing to give up everything for the God that they loved. Including, disobeying a law that went against God, knowing that the punishment was that they would be thrown into a fire or into a den of lions…

And the forth reason is, that because these people allowed God to refine them, and because of their great love for God, God was then able to use them in incredible ways to glorify Him. Using them to save entire nations, to heal the sick, and raise the dead. And the blessings on these people’s lives were more than most can imagine.” (Taken from “A Heart After God” by Erin Wolff Chapter 1 Jacob Vs. Esau Desire God More Than All Things)

We can learn from the people mentioned in the Bible and we can also learn from men and women who have lived since the days of the Bible; the men and women of faith who, although have had and do have their faults, have loved God with their whole hearts and have been used greatly by God. They have been used not only because of their great love for God, but also because of their hunger and their willingness. “…God is not a respecter of persons.” Acts 10:34 KJV God wants to do the very same things in your life and through your life that He did in the lives of the men and women in the Bible and also since that time.

Look to God for who He is, not to man!
