New Beginnings

I just came in from a New Year’s Eve service that ended at midnight. The church was packed to capacity and we ushered in 2010 with much merriment and dancing in the Lord, complete with Auld Lang Syne.

I was very impressed with the pastor’s message for the evening, which highlighted Christianity as being supernatural. One of his Bible texts was Psalm 78:19-20, which says “Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?...He smote the rock that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can He give bread also? Can He provide flesh for His people?” Can you see here a picture of speculation and doubt?

The beginning of a new year is always a time for reflecting on the past year, sifting the good experiences from the not-so-good ones and anticipating God’s best in the months to come.Now is just the right time for us to review the events that happened in our lives in 2009 and use this information constructively to plan the future.

As we look back, maybe we see progress in some areas of our lives, maybe failure in others, but failure or rather “seeming failure” does not mean that we are to give up trying for the fulfillment of our desires as long as they are constructive to ourselves, our environment and to the Kingdom of God.

Let us not be like the Israelites of old who lived with a speculating and doubtful attitude, but be ever grateful that we serve a God with whom nothing is impossible and has promised us abundant living.

At this ministry, God has been good to us in many ways during the past year. He has blessed us with strength, courage, perseverance, new vision and this new website. We look forward to continued favour with Him and we trust, too, that He will favour you and yours with His best. May this year be your year of Jubilee.

May the Lord richly bless you with His peace, love and prosperity, this New Year and always.

“...I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
