In Ephesians 6:10, we are encouraged to “…be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.” The articles in this issue explain powerful resources God has given us to be edified and to stand faithfully for Him. Developing a greater understanding of these resources gives us a basis of strength and power that we can draw upon in our daily living.

In “God’s Gifts to the Church: The Five Ministries,” by Matt Stiles, we learn that these ministries are vital to the spiritual growth and well-being of the Body of Christ and that they work in conjunction with each individual believer doing their part. In another feature article, Dee Davis shows us how to “Take Control of Life and Win!” by thinking, speaking, and acting on God’s Word.

Each of us can make a big contribution to help God’s Word prevail, even in challenging situations. Rev. Jack Diers gives us tools for “Building Mental Endurance to Stand Strong and Serve.” And “God Promises Us…” highlights one promise from each feature article that we can claim and share.

What Does the Word Say? takes us to God’s Word to examine and clarify the misunderstanding that leads some people to think that they should be afraid of God. Manners and Customs of the Bible broadens our understanding of “The Cubit in Bible Times,” helping us to formulate an accurate mental picture of what we are reading about when we come across this unit of measure in God’s Word. The Prevailing Word Report gives insight into the forward movement of God’s Word, relating inspiring details of The Way Corps training program, the Mid-South and Midwest Region Meetings, and the Country Coordinator Seminar that was held at The Way International Headquarters in April of this year.

Psalms 34:8 says, “O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” What good thing has God included in this Way Magazine just for you? You could highlight it, underline it, circle it, bookmark it, or copy it down in a journal as you trust in God to fulfill His Word. Then rejoice with others in the goodness of our trustworthy God when you see His promise come to pass!
