A Word From The Pastor: Dr. Timothy Nelson

 

     
     

 

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. – Romans 8:37
 
As we begin each new day, may we begin with a fresh hope in what we can accomplish. In God’s Word, we see God as a "Now God." He is always doing a new thing. He says His mercies are new and fresh every morning. He says His grace is sufficient for this day. There is nothing stale and nothing stagnant in God’s Kingdom. Six days a week Yahweh gave fresh manna for the children of Israel during their journey in the wilderness.
Just as Israel learned to trust God for their daily needs, we too can trust and keep learning how to trust Him to give us what we need each day as we learn to live one day at a time. In Christ, “old things have passed away.”
So as we strive to live into each new day, will you press toward the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus? Will you choose to NOT look back in regret as to what you did not get done, but rather reflect on what you were able to accomplish for God’s Kingdom and then move toward what you can do in each new day God gives.
To often, people live in their pasts and it places them in dark and lonely arenas. There is no life in the sea of regrets and hurts. That is a place of hopelessness and despair. Why stay there? We have the choice to live in the grace of God while praying His Word over our lives for the blessings He has promised and provided. We need a new mindset: we are no longer victims of our past circumstances. They will not rule our lives. We are more than survivors – we are conquerors through Christ.
