For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
From the Pastors Desk,
My Inspirational Word...
As, we continue to battle COVID and all that confronts us daily ... Galatians 6:9 Let us not grow weary in well doing...
I want to encourage you today that as in the days of Moses In the Book Numbers Ch 20, as the Children of Israel traveled in the wilderness they became very weary.
They began to want to do things their way... Well, as the story reads they continued to Moan, Groan and Complain to Moses. They said to Moses, "why did you bring us out of Egypt to this Desert place into the wilderness" ? ..They asked him"did you bring us here to die" ? They continued to complain about their condition on a regular basis. And the result is that many began to rise up against Moses and Aaron, they began taking things into their own hands...Well, that didn't work out very well, the result is God had to show them better than Moses could tell them. The Moral of this Inspirational Check In is; that God was in control back then and he is in Control Now!
So, I say to each of you today the Scriptures tell us that" if you can just hold out and be steadfast unmovable always abounding in the Lord" ! And "If we would only Trust God, and keep the Faith", then there will be Victory after this. So, be not weary in well doing if we faint not we shall reap a harvest that the Lord is preparing for us...
So, to each of you when you pray ask the Lord to "Help you to Hold out until your Change Comes"....
There will be Glory after this!
