You will find Him

It was an amazing New Year service today.

Pastor Chris’ sermon was simple: he reiterated the importance of being in the presence of God via Joshua 1:1-18. Nevertheless, the Spirit was moving strongly in our midst. The sermon may be simple but the message of the Lord was firm – He wants us to live our lives from the center of his presence.

Many people had responded to the calling of God to receive him and renew their lives in Christ. There was joy in our midst, there was love and there was trust as we opened up our lives to the church. A brother came up during testimony time and testified to the goodness of God, how he and his family had gone through the rock bottom and yet God is good, protected them and upheld them. In God’s perfect timing, when he gave up his dreams and stopped searching for fulfillment in his life: that is when God said, “you can only be found in Me, not in your dreams or in your hopes but in Mine. You will only be fulfilled in Me.”

Praise be to the Lord and glory be to His name!

The LORD will stay with you as long as you stay with him! Whenever you seek him, you will find him. But if you abandon him, he will abandon you.
2 Chronicles 15:2 (NLT)

Let it be in our daily prayers that by the end of 2008, we have stayed with Him, we have sought Him, we have dreamt His dreams and we have been fulfilled in Him.
