Joni Lamb: Her Incredible Testimony of God’s Faithfulness

Posted by


Joni Lamb

Over the last 40 years the Lord has carried me through countless storms where it appeared by all outward circumstances that I was going under. Fear would try to overtake me, along with doubt, and apprehension, but I always knew He was there, and I could trust Him.

Yet, it hasn’t always been easy. I mean, who starts a Christian TV station with no money in a place like Montgomery? How do you raise a family? I mean honestly, it had better be God because otherwise it would be crazy.

One time, a well-known, world-wide, minister with a television ministry visited our fledgling station. Later he said in public, “That couple doesn’t know what they are doing, and that TV station will never get on the air!” Did we really hear from God? The theme of our lives seemed to be, “Marcus, Joni, take My hand. Trust Me as we walk through this.” We did and He has been faithful every time.

Consider the life of Joseph. When God finally brought him out and into his ultimate destiny, it was then Joseph could help his family, preserve God’s plan of growing a people, and even preserve Pharaoh and Egypt.

Lamb Book

You can be in the midst of a storm and still be moving in your destiny. The presence of storms and pain doesn’t mean you are out of the will of God. It doesn’t mean He is absent. In fact, you might be right in the middle of the will of God during your most violent storm. It’s not necessarily the most popular thing, but it is the truth and I’m going to be real with you.

God uses storms to refine us, and also to get us where He wants us to ultimately be. We struggle to believe that. And not only that, but that He is guiding. When the Lord prompts us to do things, He is outside of time. He knows the end and the beginning. He has a divine plan but to us it is revealed as we take the journey step by step like that falling snowflake being perfectly formed.
