This is a picture of a rainbow over the Sea of Galilee one day while Judy and I were there. In fact, moments later, it became
a double rainbow! All the passengers on our tour bus were thrilled that God blessed us to be in that place at that time to see it. The rainbow is a reminder of God’s promise to never again wipe out life on earth by a flood. At that moment in time during my sabbatical, Yahweh used a rainbow to remind me of His promise to provide all I need to serve Him. A double meaning!
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
– Matthew 6:33 NKJV
Although I went to the Holy Land as part of my leave expecting a time of rest, the Father knew I also needed affirmation. So, He provided some amazing, once in a lifetime opportunities for me to minister to the 45 people in our bus group.
That included leading the group through Bible reading and commentary, leading songs and in prayers at some of the most special cites in Is- rael. The Upper Room, Jesus’s holding place in the dungeon of Caiaphas’s’ house, The Garden of Gethsemane, and other places Jesus walked. To top it off, I was given the privilege of baptiz- ing 18 people in the Jordan River. All of this was totally unexpected and unplanned on my part. God had prepared me, and He made the way. In doing so, He assured me that He is with me, is for me, and has more for me to do.
That I should rest in confidence in His purposes and His care for me. Whew!
Along the way while serving Him, He has also met every material need, just as He promised! As we have come off the sabbatical leave, we find ourselves in a very tight spot – both Urban Light Ministries and the Wil- liams family, but I am confident Jehovah Jireh will come through as He always does. With no government grants, we are 100% dependent on Him. Please allow Him to use you to help sustain this ministry during this critical time.
The Word promises: And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
– Philippians 4:19 NKJV Thank you for being part of fulfilling His promise.
For His Glory,
Eli Williams, Ministry President/CEO
