Elijah Larry McDuffie
AKA E. Larry McDuffie
During the time when I was traveling with the Savannah Community Choir we had gone to Nashville, TN for a recording session, when we ran into a snow storm. The bus started experiencing problems with heat and we had miles to travel before reaching the hotel. I had a talk with the Lord, and said, "Lord I know that you did not bring us out here to leave us." God spoke me through Joshua 1: 5,9:
There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for theLord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
I shared this scripture with the choir, and we started singing and praying, and what a great trip that end up becoming.
