PASTOR’S NOTES – Rev. Dwight A. Sykes
“HAPPY NEW YEAR! – 2020”
Jeremiah 29: 11 (NKJV)
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Welcome to a new decade. We have left a decade that was full of things that we had never been seen before. Steve Jobs passed away, the Avengers came to life, Barack Obama served his second term as President of the United States, Fires destroyed many acres and homes in California, and the church suffered a decline in church attendance according to the Pew Research Center and others.
But in Jeremiah, we are told that God has some great things in store for those who know Him. He promises us peace, and He will give us a future and a hope that we can depend on. We must realize who holds the future. God holds the future and if we lean and depend on Him, He will make our futures brighter. My prayer is that we keep our hands in His hand and we follow His words and commands. We all fall short of His glory, but we serve a God of another chance. The Hope that we have in Him is the faith that we have in Him. Without faith there is no hope.
If you walk with Him, everything is going to work out. Paul tells us:
Romans 8:28 (NKJV)
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
ALL MEANS ALL…
If you are looking for a church to worship, consider the “RISING STAR”…
WE SERVE AN AWESOME GOD!
GOD will never leave us or forsake us. TRUST in HIM and Be blessed!
