Hello Cathedral Family,
There is a path that God has for each of us to walk in life. In particular, there’s a path for 2017; and that path will lead us to the goal He wants to accomplish in and through us this year.
I have a very strong sense the Lord is telling us to PREPARE for what He has for us this year.
Whatever you want to call it, God’s word, vision or dream for Abraham began with the assurance, “Don’t be afraid, Abram. I’m your shield. Your reward will be grand!” Then came the instructions, “GO”, and Abraham was off on a JOURNEY with God that would end with him fulfilling every promise God had made to him.
Perhaps those words will resonate as God’s word for you in 2017. “Don’t be afraid (your name), I’m your shield. Your reward will be grand!”
For Nehemiah, the word was to go back and REBUILD or RECLAIM something. I believe this is a year of rebuilding and reclaiming things that for whatever reason have not come to fruition. Perhaps you had dreams that were laid aside and are now buried under the rubble of life. I believe the Lord is saying, “I want to breathe NEW LIFE into those dreams that I gave you.”
For Esther, the Lord was prompting her to have the courage to “SPEAK BOLDLY”. Do you have the courage to speak by faith that this is a year of breakthrough? Do you have the courage to boldly speak to the dreams that have long seemed dead and say “LIVE AGAIN”? I believe you do and YOU WILL!
This weekend I believe God’s going to help equip us to be able to receive what He has for us.
I’ll see you Sunday!
