BIG IDEA: When God calls us out of our comfort zone, we need to do as REBEKAH did, Trust in the LORD.

REFERENCES: Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV) Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths; Genesis 24:1-20, 20-67; Genesis 2:7, 18, 21-23; 1 Peter 3:1-5 (GW) Wives, in a similar way, place yourselves under your husbands’ authority. Some husbands may not obey God’s word. Their wives could win these men {for Christ} by the way they live without saying anything. 2 Their husbands would see how pure and reverent their lives are. 3 Wives must not let their beauty be something external. Beauty doesn’t come from hairstyles, gold jewelry, or clothes. 4 Rather, beauty is something internal that can’t be destroyed. Beauty expresses itself in a gentle and quiet attitude which God considers precious. 5 After all, this is how holy women who had confidence in God expressed their beauty in the past. They placed themselves under their husbands’ authority); Mark 7:24-30 (Woman of Great Faith: The Syrophoenician Woman);

V. INTRODUCTION:

Last Friday, South Korea celebrated its annual Children Day: A Day when the parents of Korea acknowledged their Children. Three days later, South Korea celebrated Parents Day. A day when the Children of Korea acknowledged their parents … and their lasting contribution to their life and family.

Now, early this Sunday Morning (14 May 2006) before the break of day, while most were still fast asleep, my wife (Dedra) received an email from our new Victorious Women Christian Council (VWCC) Ministry Leader: Minister Bert Grant … wishing all of our ladies a “Happy Mothers’ Day”.

*******************TAKE 5 BEATS *********************

MOVE 1: Thanks, Bert …. your email prompted me to also send our Multicultural Gospel Service (MCGS) ladies an email of appreciation which read:

a. It is with my whole heart, and mind, that I sincerely wish each of you MCGS Mothers a Happy Mothers’ Day 2006.

b. My prayer, for each of you (this Mothers Day 2006) is for you to "REBEKAH" - TRUST GOD when He calls you out of your comfort zone to do a WORK for HIM.

c. Again, and especially to those of you that don’t do emails, Happy Mothers Day 2006.

d. Now, as most of you can attest to, In the United States Mother’s Day was first suggested in 1872 by Julia Ward Howe (who wrote the words to the Battle hymn of the Republic) as a day dedicated to peace.

****************TAKE 5 BEATS ************************

MOVE 2: Notwithstanding, in 1907 Ana Jarvis, from Philadelphia, began a campaign to establish a national Mother’s Day.
