It has been a powerful week. “Why would you want to waste your life merely doing great things for God, when He has called us to do do impossible things? If you were stricken with polio and had to live the rest of your life in excruciating pain, would you praise and thank God for it? Sound crazy? Not after you hear David Gibbs tell about his mother. If you knew that people around the world are discovering that the solutions Jesus gave to 70% of all illnesses are proving effective, would you be interested in learning what those solutions are? At the 2012 Indianapolis ATI conference we experienced Mr. Gothard’s vision and practical Biblical perspective on meeting real needs… Chris Hogan’s ability to put Biblical principles into words and processes that achieve the impossible in family relationships… David Gibbs’ accounts of how God worked miracles in the lives of those who surrendered themselves to Him, and the folly of courting the ways of the world… Tom Harmon’s fervency for God’s children to walk in victory over the enemy through faith… Jobe Martin’s revolutionary, corrective critique of the evolutionary perspective antique… George Mattix showing us the awesome opportunities to change nations around the world by being the light, showing God’s solutions to leaders… Jim Schettler inspiring us to action by new insights he has gleaned from meditating on “well known” Bible stories… and that does not mention half of the speakers! We also met new families of like heart who inspired us more than words can say. When I remember how busy I was prior to the conference and how I thought it was impossible to attend the conference this year, I am ashamed, and will be grateful for the rest of my life that I was there. All we need is the Word of God to know and obey the truth; but the personal accounts from others of what God has done in our day is indescribably inspiring.
“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.”
