Welcome to the Beginning of a Deeper Trust in Jesus Christ
We are living in tumultuous times. It seems our nation has never been more divided and unsure of what the future holds. What an opportunity this is for us to be the church of Jesus Christ. Although we do not know what the future holds, we do know WHO holds the future – our God and King, Jesus Christ – and therefore we have every reason to live with joy, peace, optimism and purpose. Whoever is in office, whether they be Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, our hope is in the Lord, Our God.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses (i.e. in their own resources), but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
Among the ways we place our trust and hope in God are prayer, fasting, worship, studying and obeying his Word, as well as standing for and speaking the truth.
If you are reading this, you have made the awesome choice to join us in renewing your trust in God and being a part of the solution to the challenges that face our lives, families, church, and nation. Please know that all of heaven is applauding your decision and is cheering you on to the finish line.
Hebrews 12:1-2 TLB
Since we have such a huge crowd of [witnesses] watching us from the grandstands, let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back, and especially those sins that wrap themselves so tightly around our feet and trip us up; and let us run with perseverance the particular race that God has set before us. Keep your eyes on Jesus …
Most of all, know that Christ Himself is pleased with your desire to deepen your trust in Him.
Because of God’s many promises to us, we expect that He will do great things for His glory in this focused time of prayer, fasting, and seeking His will. Ask for and expect that He will do great things in and through your life, in and through our church, and for our community and nation.
1 John 5:14-15
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15And if we know that He hears us--whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of Him.
During these 21 days our great desire and intention is to entrust ourselves, as well as our families, church, community and nation more fully to God.
