God's 2020 Vision For Us
Happy New Year in the Lord as we pray for God to unfold His 20-20 vision for His people in 2020. Which includes what Paul was quoted saying to the Ephesian Elders in Acts 20:19 when he spoke of “Serving the Lord with all humility and with tears and with trials…”.
Then in Acts 20:20, Paul went on to say that he did not “…shrink from declaring anything that was profitable and that he taught in public from house to house. Acts 20:20 sounds like a wonderful, godly vision for 2020 and beyond.
Last night we had a wonderful time of fellowship, celebrating our Lord with the Body of Christ. We celebrated, with “one-another”, as friends, brothers, and sisters in Christ, as a New Year was about to dawn and as we celebrated in a beautiful home that is used for the glory of God.
We then finished out the evening in the home of our family to bring in the New Year, as we traveled from “House to House”.
As the close of this past decade, yields way to a brand, new decade, we are excited about what may God do among us. On New Year's Eve, we spoke on having eyes of faith that look towards the future by beholding the Promises of God.
Uncharted waters may lie just ahead, but we have nothing to fear.
May these passages from the Amplified Bible, that are filled with the Promises of God, encourage you in your faith-walk with our Lord and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Consider setting some time aside to reflect upon His Promises, and you will witness how the Light of His precious promises begin to reflect through you.
May we all grow in what it means to love God and Love others, in the Light of His Love and in the Light of His Word of Grace.
Heb. 11:20 “[With eyes of] faith Isaac, looking far into the future, invoked blessings upon Jacob and Esau.”
2Cor. 5:7 “For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance.”
Heb. 13:5-6 “Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I WILL NOT IN ANY WAY FAIL YOU nor give you up nor leave you w/o support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] (6) So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?”
May He shower you with His richest blessings through-out this coming year and beyond as we look for His return.
