Message for April 19, 2020 from Pastor Shirley

Well praise the Lord in whom all blessings flow. May God continue to shower you and your family with kindness, goodness and favor in every area of your lives. 
We are living in uncertain times. Our world seems to be changing daily around us. But there is one thing that is sure – the WORD. That is what we return to over and over again in times like these. The Bible tells us in Psalms 119:89 O Lord, your word is established in heaven forever.
For some it is easy to just believe what man has to say about what is happening in the world today. But have you ever thought what is on the heart of the Father concerning the complexities of these uncertain times. I am sure it grieves His heart to see the follies of man as they scurry around trying to find answers to all the things that are happening. Instead of the why let us just find our solace in the Word. That is where the Truth can be found.
One thing the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart a long time ago, God is good and the enemy of your soul is out to do you no good. I remembered the Scripture in John 10:10 “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” God cannot be good and evil at the same time. God’s goodness is running to overtake you. Evil is birthed from the evil one. The enemy of our lives desires to overtake us with fear in the chaos that is happening in the world
Jesus has told us in John 16:33 … Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]
 Brothers and Sisters we live in a fallen world that has not been redeemed.  It is groaning to be released and the groans are getting louder and louder as we come ever closer to the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Romans 8:22 We know that all creation has been groaning with the pains of childbirth up to the present time. 
Soon and very soon we will be going Home.  Until then stay in faith and keep on keeping on. Jesus is Lord and we win.
