“Where there is no vision, the people perish…”
Greetings and blessings to the “Household of Faith!” I marvel at how good God has been to us and I thank the Lord continually for His Favor that has been extended to the New Bethel Family. I know that New Bethel is on the verge of a great and an awesome year! And know that you are vital to the process, in bringing the vision alive for the ministry!
We’ve gathered for our 2018 Vision Weekend! Oh my, what an informative and spiritual impartation we will receive during our Vision Leadership on Friday! The Lord certainly will anoint Pastor Valerie Crumpton to help us understand better with “Building God’s Dream from the Ground Up!” There will be such an impact from the Vision Casting on Saturday as we also will ‘break ground’ for our new building project. When we gather on our property, I believe we will also break a ‘spiritual stronghold’ as we unearthed the land for our new center! So many are excited with me of the great expectation of what God is preparing to do for us in 2018 and Sunday will conclude this special weekend for New Bethel with Vision Sunday!
The Proverb writer declares, “Where there is no vision, the people perish…” (Proverbs 29:18) The word ‘vision’ in the Hebrew transliteration [hāzôn] means a mental sight; a dream or revelation. The ‘vision’ comes from God! It’s the Word [Rhema] that the leader must provide. As I’ve been teaching, before you can start building you must know ‘what are you building.’ What do you see? To understand where you are going, both as a collective body (the church) and for your individual life (you), there must be a vision that will be your guiding sign on how to get to that divine destination! When you are a part of a church or an organization (and even your own life) that has no sight or dream to fuel your actions and decisions, you will live life going nowhere… just walking in circles!
This is the time of blessings. The Lord has already indicated that this is…. The Year of Building! Know that this is the set time (or season) to experience from God supernatural blessings, prosperity, and favor! I am ready and prepared to walk in every door God opens this year for ministry! Be blessed knowing the promises of God will be true in your life. Lady Angela and I are praying for you… please keep us in prayer as well! Catch hold to the vision and run with it!
