We serve the Mountain Mover!

“See that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet” (Matthew 24:6).

In this world we WILL have tribulations, the scriptures tell us this is true. However today be reminded that these troubles we are facing today have not come to stay.  Jesus has won the victory and we are overcomers through Him.

God’s Word tells us that in these last days men’s hearts would fail them for fear, but saint of God, we should not be troubled as those who have no hope!

As Christians, we have the hope of His soon return and his promise that through Jesus’ sacrifice for us we are “more than conquerors”.     God  in our lives gives us the victory.  We can conquer and defeat any foe that comes against us physically, spiritually, financially or  emotionally.

God is bigger than any mountain we may face:  Hey, He created the mountains so He can certainly move any that may be in your way today.  The winds and waves obey His command—HE is our peace!

Rest in Him today—He holds you in His hands!   He is more than enough!

Love ya, 

Pastor Phil

The Thrill of Victory - The Agony of Defeat

The Thrill of Victory - The Agnoy of Defeat

One must shake his head in wonder at the thought that God has chosen to bring believers into the close fellowship of family. Undoubtedly, the closeness experienced when the family gathers for some festive or solemn occasion is unmatched by other moments of joy.

As we have watched the events of the Winter Olympics at Sochi unfold, some of the more poignant have been the delight seen on the faces of family vicariously experiencing a victory won by a sibling, a son or daughter. Collectively, we reached for our own hankies as Alex Bilodeau from Canada embraced his special needs brother, Frederic, having just clinched gold in the Men’s Freestyle Skiing Moguls. We felt our own hearts swell with pride as Frederic mouthed to Alex, “I love you!” in the bedlam of the winner’s celebration. 

So it is with our Father when we have a triumph great or small. It is His delight we experience and share with other family members as we coast on the wings of victory.

Conversely, and not so well publicized, were those other family moments at Sochi when the run did not go so well. It wasn’t in the winner’s circle but in the loser’s slow shuffle away from the lights and cameras that we saw the true depth of family love. An arm around defeated shoulders, an embrace while hot tears of frustration flowed down flushed and embarrassed cheeks, soft words uttered in loving consolation; each of these happened time and again as young people who had done their best but received no medal received instead the love and admiration of family who still believed in them.

Of course you will anticipate God’s participation in your best moments. But you can also count on Him to be there when you are picking up the pieces from some effort that didn’t earn you anything but a black eye. You see…He has invited each of us to become His family member. And family stands with family. You can count on God’s willingness to be there at both ends of life’s extremes.

Light for our  path  this week !

Psalm: 121:1    (Illum version)

 I will lift up my eyes unto the hills, where my help comes from. My help comes from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer your foot to be moved:   He that keeps you will not slumber.  Behold, He that keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord  is your keeper: the Lord  is your shade upon your right hand.  The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night.  The Lord  shall preserve you from all evil: He shall preserve your soul.  The Lord shall preserve your going out and coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Friend:  No matter what you are facing at this time, GOD is bigger than any battle you'll encounter.  HE is our all-knowing, all-wise, all-powerful and ever-present provider.  A world champion boxer used to say he was the greatest -- news flash:   GOD is the greatest and He is wild about you, His child.

Be encouraged, He is in control!  

Pastor  Phil
