From the Pastor's Desk
For years, I always sought God for a word at the beginning of each new year. Then I went through a season in which I was out of balance with my perspective on some things, and I stopped doing that. The last few years God has revived that in me.
For this new year and this new decade, God spoke one word to me, and He has confirmed it multiple times now. That word is "Opportunity." "Opportunity" is a situation or condition favorable for attainment of a goal; a good position, chance, or prospect for advancement or success." If an opportunity knocked at your door today, would you be ready to respond? Opportunity knocks when we least expect it, but if we continue to seek God, regardless of our circumstances, we will be ready when the time presents itself.
Opportunity may be the key word that is exploding in this season and on God's calendar of events. His people have been held up and held back. Now is the time to believe for all He has promised. 2020 and this decade will see opportunities and doors you can only dream about. He does exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we can ask or imagine (Eph. 3:20).
When you see an opportunity, seize it! Joseph's opportunity was a long time coming (Gen. 41:14-44). It was different than anything he had imagined. Seize opportunities you have only dreamed of! It is a NOW season. It is time for a NOW faith. God will validate and vindicate us in the promises that we have stood on for a long time. Increase is coming!
