God your word brings so much encouragement! No matter what I am up against, there is a source of strength, comfort or wisdom. Because of all you have done for me, I find myself wanting to share it – to be an encouragement to those around me. Lord, give me a heart for the hurting; plant scriptures in my head that will bless them. Let me be a source of hope as I point others to YOU. Let me be a living testimony Father, when people see my transformed life, let them be encouraged that it’s never to late to turn to you; you remake even the hardest of hearts. Therefore, encourage one another
CALL On The GOD You Need:
Jehovah Jireh – GOD Provides
Jehovah Rophe – GOD Heals
Jehovah Nissi – GOD is My Banner (Defender)
Jehovah Shalom – GOD is Peace
Jehovah Mekaddishkem – The LORD our Sanctifier
Jehovah Rohi – The LORD our Shepherd
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13 God, my general, my captain, my father, my friend, as I consider all you
are to me, I realize I cannot fail. I recognize the power I have as your child, and I am encouraged beyond all human reason. If only I could lose my human reason entirely and rely solely on your promises. I can – with your help. But am I brave enough to ask? Do I have the courage to surrender my logic to the upside-down ways of your kingdom? Let’s find out together Lord. Help me lay logic aside and pick up FAITH! Logic says I’m losing, but I prefer your TRUTH. With you on my side, I CANNOT be defeated. So what should we say about this? If GOD is for us, no one can defeat us. Romans 8:31 NCV
EPHESIANS 6:4: AND YE FATHERS PROVOKE NOT YOUR CHILDREN TO WRATH; BUT BRING THEM UP IN THE NURTURE AND ADMONITION OF THE LORD
PROVERBS 22:6: TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO, AND
WHEN HE IS OLD HE WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT.
SPEND TIME WITH YOUR CHILDREN – TIME IS MUCH MORE VALUABLE THAN NIKE’S – AND ALL THE MORE WHEN YOUR CHILDREN GET OLDER
FATHERS NO MATTER WHAT: HOLD ON TO THE LOVE OF YOUR CHILDREN AND DON’T GIVE THEM UP TO SATAN – PRAY FOR THEM NO MATTER WHAT-DON’T GIVE UP ON THEM
DON’T GET BENT OUT OF SHAPE OVER THE ACTIONS OF YOUR CHILDREN – THEY THINK AND ACT AS A CHILD – HOW DID YOU ACT AS A CHILD? GOD DOES MAY NOT BE HAPPY WITH US BUT HE DOES NOT GIVE UP ON US OR SAY I TOLD YOU SO UPON RETURN.

1 TIM. 5:8: BUT IF ANYONE DOES NOT PROVIDE FOR HIS OWN, AND ESPECIALLY THOSE OF HIS OWN HOUSEHOLD, HE HAS DENIED THE FAITH AND IS WORSE THAN AN UNBELIEVER.
PROVERBS 10:1: A WISE SON MAKES A GLAD FATHER; BUT A FOOLISH IS THE GRIEF OF HIS MOTHER
PROVERBS 17:6: CHILDREN’S CHILDREN ARE THE CROWN OF OLD MEN; AND THE GLORY OF CHILDREN ARE THEIR FATHERS. YOUR CHILDREN ARE WATCHING YOU – BE THE EXAMPLE YOU WANT THEM TO BE.
To our ministry leaders, thank you for intentionally serving God’s saints and the community. We all know that if we lose focus we will grow weary in well doing. (Galatians 6:9) It is my prayer that this will be a year for the following: that God, Holy Spirit will mature us all to become more spiritual and develop a servant lifestyle; that we maintain an eternal focus in your ministry always thinking of the bigger picture, the “Kingdom of

that God, Holy Spirit will mature us all to become more spiritual and develop a servant lifestyle; that we maintain an eternal focus in your ministry always thinking of the bigger picture, the “Kingdom of God”; and that we may grow into Christ and view interruptions as life-giving encounters to show the Love of God? The woman with the issue of blood was not on his agenda for the day for he was headed to the home of Jairus to heal his daughter. But Jesus turned that interruption into an opportunity to show God’s love and the power of faith. (Luke 8:41-56).
