“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
Greetings and blessings to the Household of Faith! I thank God for His favor because certainly we know that God has showered us with His multiple blessings! The scripture declares, “… And I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessings.” (Ezekiel 34:26) I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming expression of love that was shown to me for my birthday. I truly appreciate every gift, every card, every act of kindness… and the celebration dinner was awesome!
This week we will be celebrating Thanksgiving and I’m praying that you enjoy a blessed Thanksgiving holiday with family & friends. And please take the time to reflect back and thank God for all that He has done for you. It has only been because of our God with the mercy & grace that was extended to us, that we are here today. For that I love and adore Him! And I know in my spirit that greater is coming! Even though we are nearing the end of the year, remember this is “The Year of Happy!” Never feel as if it’s over… that there’s no help. That’s what the adversary wants you to think and he’ll begin to sow the seeds of despondency and discouragement. But keep hope alive!
All of us at one time or another has received a promise. We took confidence and trust, based on the person who made the promise to us, it will come to pass. Unfortunately, how many times did that promise end in disappointment. After counting and depending on the person to deliver the promise, for whatever reason, it was not fulfilled. But thank God we serve a faithful God! The scripture declares, “Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations…” (Deuteronomy 7:9 NIV) We have the confidence of knowing that God will keep every promise He makes! Through the Word we understand that God cannot lie! “If God said it… it must come to pass!”
So if it ever appears to you that the promise of God is not coming, just wait for it! Keep holding on and believing what God declared. We are in the season of blessing! Don’t get tired… don’t get weary… for in due season [or the appointed time] we will receive the promise! Expect it today! God will keep His word!
So much more is being planned here at Bethel for the remainder of this year and I’m excited about what God has shared with me for 2016! I’m telling you, God is preparing us to do ‘great exploits’ and for an abundance of blessings that’s coming our way! Angela and I love you all. Be blessed!
