San Marcos - El Camino Real de los Tejas

I remind you again of yesterday's blog:

The Lord had prophetically exhorted us on Saturday night - "You are heading into the hornet's nest."  He also declared according to Exodus 23:28 - "I will send hornets ahead of you so that they will drive out the Hivites, the Canaanites, and the Hittites before you." We had been strictly commanded to pray DAILY Psalm 91 over ourselves, our families and over everyone connected in anyway with the trip.  We have done so and I admonish each reader to do so as well.

We spiritually ran into that nest as we entered Caldwell.  Outside this city in central Texas there was twice an attempt to establish a new Mexico City in the heart of the Texas province.  It was called Fort Tenoxtitlan.  It was a hard but essential location to find.  As a matter of fact, if the Lord had not sent us an angelic servant Joe - the landowner - we would not have found this spot.  But let me back up.

The Lord had prepared us for the task that morning. That morning our entire team was led to go on the campus of Texas A&M University.  We visited one spot - the Century Tree.  It is at the center of the campus near the Academic Building.  Under this tree many a young man has proposed to his future bride - including my son Josh and his wife Andrea.  As we approached the tree, my daughter Amy (a student) "warned" us that anyone who walks together under this tree is together for life.  We deliberately, as a core team, when under the tree.  We are sealed covenantly in Christ Jesus with each other.  The Lord promised and promises His everlasting love and protection to those He has redeemed and called.

Even though the entire day was marked by feelings of hornets peskily interrupting us - we endured.  We carried out our assignment.  We dealt with strong root issues in the State - especially this false capital that the enemy had tried to establish near Caldwell.  By the way the mascot for Caldwell is "The Hornets."  We ended the day in San Marcos - hosted by Bob Long, TXAPN Council Member.  A co-leader of the worship team - Jeremy Burk - imparted the Davidic heart of a worshiper into each of us.  We renewed our covenant in the Lord.  This morning, before we head in San Antonio we will commune together.

The journey continues.  The roots get stronger and deeper. But nothing is stronger or deeper than the love of our Savior Jesus.
