NOTE from Ron Mainse: My Dad does not know that I’m adding this to his blog, but I wanted all of his blog-reader friends to know that today is a special day…Dad’s 78th birthday! Also, tomorrow is my Mom’s birthday (Norma-Jean Mainse)…so Happy Birthday Dad & Mom! Thanks for continuing to be a blessing to so many. I love you! …Friends, why not send a birthday greeting to them today (for Dad) and tomorrow (for Mom)? You can post it as a comment on the blog at (If you’re new to doing that, just click on the “Comments” bubble at the top.

Key Verse: Exodus 8:13a

So the Lord did according to the word of Moses.


Moses spoke, and God backed him up with supernatural power. Some have used this reality to get God to do their will. No, no, we are to do God’s will. First we find out the will of God, and then we speak, and God acts accordingly. Jesus’ word was always effective, 100% of the time. Why? Because He could say, “The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do” (John 5:19). Jesus got up very early each morning to spend time with His Father in prayer (Mark 1:35). Jesus functioned as a Man filled with the Holy Spirit. He was, is, and ever shall be fully God, but He laid aside the exercise of His Diety. He took time to find His Father’s plan for the new day, and then did what His Father wanted Him to do. This is also the way we can know what to speak, and God will do that which we speak as He did for Moses.


Father God, I want what You want. Help me to speak out that which You give me to speak so that “Your will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” I pray this in the Name of Jesus who always, without fail, did Your perfect will. Amen!


I remember Norma-Jean coming home with a booklet entitled, “Hung by the Tongue.” It pointed out the power of our words for good or evil, for positive or negative results. Jesus never ever used His essential divinity for selfish purposes. He lived as a Spirit-filled human being. The temptation of Jesus is an example of this (Matthew 4:3-4). He could’ve turned the stones into bread as Satan suggested, but He refused to help Himself in this way. It’s sad to report that there are those today who claim “prosperity” for themselves, twisting the Scriptures, seeking to manipulate God for their own purposes, taking advantage of their position of influence to manipulate people into giving sacrifically so that the manipulator may prosper. Simon the sorcerer did this. Please look this up as I have done (Acts 8:9-25). Run from those who, like Simon, are “claiming to be someone great,” and (as verse 10 says), “All gave heed to him from the least to the greatest saying, ‘This man is the great power of God.'”

Yours for hearing from God each morning and then speaking and doing His will,

  5. Many years ago, you came to our camp at Arden On, introduced your self as DAVID MAINSE and we shared things of the LORD.

    You increased strength within me.[b]
    All the kings on earth will give You thanks, Lord,
    when they hear what You have promised.[c]
    They will sing of the Lord’s ways,
    for the Lord’s glory is great.
    Though the Lord is exalted,
    He takes note of the humble;
    but He knows the haughty from a distance.
    If I walk into the thick of danger,
    You will preserve my life
    from the anger of my enemies.
    You will extend Your hand;
    Your right hand will save me.
    The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.
    Lord, Your love is eternal;
    do not abandon the work of Your hands.
    Psalm 138

    “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

  216. Happy Birthdays David and Norma-Jean! Sent you an e-mail via Ron last week but didn’t realize he is away until Monday. We wish you a happy celebration with your family and may God continue to bless your lives with His love and grace.

  217. Happy Birthday David
    But more
    God Bless You

    You have always served selflessly. You have not promoted yourself or praised yourself but advanced the kingdom of and praised the Lord God Almighty. This is the best legacy anyone could ever hope for. Our Lord will indeed say to you ‘Well done’ and you have earned it.
    I and many have been discouraged and ‘put off’ by those advancing the ‘Prosperity Doctrine’ and indicating all must always go well or you are not a proper Christian or are an unbeliever. Your ministry has NEVER made me feel that way. Your ministry has never asked for sacrificial gifts to it in order to gain approval or blessings from our Lord. You have instead indicated the priority of the needs of the local church and that giving to Crossroads is only in addition to that. I’ve never seen Crossroads indicate sacrificing the needs of individuals to benefit the ministry. I haven’t seen you living an outlandish lifestyle or promoting religious or any kind of discrimination or bigotry.
    You have the love AND respect of many who don’t often let you know that, and you already know you and your family and your ministry have the prayers of many more than are first apparent.
    I hope you have the greatest year ahead, a great week with Norma Jean and the rest of your family and friends celebrating both birthdays, and most of all I hope you have many more busy, fruitful years serving the Lord and blessed by Him. God Bless your life and work in HIm.

  218. Another candle on your cake?
    Well, that’s no cause to pout,
    Be glad that you have strength enough
    To blow the darn thing out!

    I am new to your blog and enjoying it a lot. Happy birthday to both of you, Its neat that you are both so productive and progressive in this shall we say, “sunset chapter”.

  219. Shalom.

    All the best for you today David!
    We thank the Lord our God for raising up a man that truly inspires many into the faith. Tho I now live in the future, we met sometime in the past, where you personally ministered to me. Your words, your name, even your place have since been eched in my heart. Thank you for staying in the race, His amazing grace continue to dwell with you, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

  221. Happy Birthday, David. I missed reading this blog yesterday although I did my reading of the Bible. I learned that I should never miss as I missed something very special. God bless you David. You have blessed my life and so many more.

  222. Happy Birthday Mom and Dad Mainse
    May you both have the greatest and healthiest year ever!
    Love Rob and Silvana

  223. Happy Birthday David and Norma Jean.Thank you for your faithfulness over the yeas. My Mother loved 100 Huntley Street.In 1983 on a visit here from Alberta we were in the audience. It was a highlight of her visit

  224. Belated birthday blessings, dear friends. I have enjoyed the delight of knowing your whole family, since we met 66 years ago (you were twelve) and I count your mother as a spiritual mother of mine; I treasure her letters to me. I admired your dad and appreciated his confidence in me. I have been blessed by this long association.
