Message for April 9, 2017 from Pastor Shirley

The Lord your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes, and in the wilderness. There you saw how the Lord your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place.” In spite of this, you did not trust in the Lord your God, who went ahead of you on your journey, in fire by night and in a cloud by day, to search out places for you to camp and to show you the way you should go. Deuteronomy 1:30-33


    The children of Israel had a trust issue. Trust means to have

confidence in the ability of someone. No matter how many times God had been there before to deliver them from the hand of their enemy they still doubted if God would do it again. Their lack of trust kept them from a “there place” where God had their blessing waiting. It was a “there place” of a promised land that flowed with milk and honey.

   There is so much more God has for us but sometimes our lack of trust in Him causes us to stay in our place of comfort. Each of us has a place called “there” were the blessings of God are waiting. Our God never fails to provide but we often fail to receive because we are not willing to go with the change that takes us to our “there place”.

    These places call “there” changes and we must be willing to trust God and go to those “there places” when He says. “ it  is time to move, you have been here long enough”. I have more at your “there place.”
