"Seek Ye the Lord while

He may be found..."

- Isaiah 55:6


Word of the Week

From Pastor Bruce Carter

You've Got the Power


Growing closer and closer to God can help you learn more about yourself and listen for God's timing, not humans timing. Tuning into your life giver can give you the strength and impetus to press forward when it seems like everything and everyone is against you. If God is on your side, who can be against you? In other words, why does it matter who is against you? God's power is strong enough. It's resurrection power; the same wonderful power used to raise Christ from the dead. What is more powerful than that? Don't let naysayers stop you. Don't let yourself stop you by allowing negative words to replay in your mind. Don't let circumstances stop you; it will never be a perfect time to launch out and follow your God-given mission. Activate your faith, rely on God's amazing power, and know that God is on your side. You have all you need.


Scripture: Ephesians 1:19-21 KJV   19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:


Prayer: Powerful and mighty God, I will not let negative words from others or myself stop me from following my dreams. I desire to live the life you have designed me to live. I rely on your strength to fulfill my mission. In Jesus name. Amen.
