This blog is taken from my brother Evangelist Larry Wolfe’s daily devotional, which he sends out to the truckers he ministers to from the Pilot Truck Stop on I-85 in South Carolina. The Lord saved Larry while he was reading the Gospel of John, through the advice of our oldest brother Pooch (Warren) and by the prayers of his faithful wife Betsy. He was a professional engineer by day and a Harley (Hog) riding alcoholic drug user by night. The above photo is the cover of his testimony tract and shows him sitting on the Harley he built with his own hands. His testimony can be found on his ministry website listed below.
FROM LARAMIE: (Us Wolfe’s like nick-names) Each of us is given at least one gift (Romans 12:3-8; I Corinthians 12:1-31; Ephesians 4:11, 12) which the Lord uses to fulfill our destiny as members of His Body the Church. And brethren, this gift must be exercised in and through a local Bible-preaching church, as God matures us making us what He desires, in order to fulfill our destiny. As we minister to others using our Spiritual gift in the church, He gets His work done in our lives as we journey on our way to our destiny.
Moses did not know his destiny until two-thirds of his life had already gone by. God worked on him for eighty years, forty in Egypt, and forty in Midian, the backside of the desert, before He revealed Moses’ destiny from “The Burning Bush” in Exodus 3. Joshua, in like manner was well on in years before God told him the full extent of his destiny (Joshua 1) after Moses died and God buried him on Mt. Nebo.
David was anointed by Samuel in his teens, but did not become King of Israel until he was thirty. Joseph, Jacob’s first son by his second wife Rachel, also was thirty years old before he began his role of leadership in the land of Egypt. Jesus of Nazareth, the Lord of glory, also was thirty years old when He was baptized by John the Baptist and began His earthly ministry. All of these men were thoroughly prepared before God sent them forth to fulfill their destinies.
So, brethren, if God is in the business of predestinating all of these Bible characters including His only begotten Son, and He is, how much more is He about the same work in each of His children? Just as He promised: “For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” (Romans 8:29).
So, even as we are out on the road, we must remain connected to our local church, praying for the Pastor, exercising our ministry gift of intercessory prayer, as the members of the local body pray for you, and your ministry of witnessing for the Lord Jesus. Then, let us simply wait on Him to reveal His destiny as we pray and soak our souls with the Word!
