Praise the Lord to the Miracle Temple Family and the people of God everywhere.
I greet you all in the Matchless Name of Jesus Christ!
As we begin a new year, it is critical that we leave some things in the past. I believe that for us to walk through the new doors that are being opened for us it will require some old doors to remain shut. We can’t afford to live in the past and expect a new and bright future. We should have handled those old and sometimes painful situations by now, but if not let’s acknowledge them and move forward. God never designed us to live in two natural dimensions simultaneously. Either we are in the present walking toward the future, or we’re stuck in the past being stunted and not growing.
I declare this is the year of “A New Thing!” So, if we are expecting something new from God, we must move forward towards it. Philippians 3: 13-14, as recorded by The Apostle Paul reminds us to forget those things that are behind us. In other words, we don’t have the luxury of focusing on the past. We must busy ourselves reaching for the things in front of us. Our destinies aren’t contained in the past, but they are expanded into the horizon of our future. Our future in Christ Jesus, our future within our families, our future for our personal lives. And let us not neglect our future in the Church (Body of Christ). We all have bright futures ahead if we focus our attention on the things that are ahead. Remember, Jesus is with you, I am with you, you are not alone.
Until our next communication,
Pastor T. Marc Gandy
