Give thanks to Lord Jesus and his faithful love, at the beginning of New Year, Deer Park meditate the scripture and want to learn the purpose of life and creation. The reason we worry so much and have no joy is that the facts tells us: Not everything is beautiful in life and abundance overflow everywhere. The good thing is that The more we acknowledge ourselves, the more we see the need of faith and we more we want to trust God and invite his engagement in everything of our life.
Pastor Frank quote scripture from John 【Jhn9:1】 As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. 【Jhn9:2】 His disciples asked him, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?' 【Jhn9:3】 'Neither this man nor his parents sinned,' said Jesus, 'but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life. 【Jhn9:4】 As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.【Jhn9:5】 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.' 【Jhn9:6】 Having said this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man's eyes. 【Jhn9:7】 'Go,' he told him, 'wash in the Pool of Siloam' (this word means Sent). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing. Live in a lawful world, all our earthly living and experience tells us that, the good things happen depend on some conditions, eg when I have money so I can make college study, if I receive good home parenting, I will not be like this, if I get the good job, my life will be totally changed. You can see this kind of reasoning and thinking is everywhere, surely we can not denial it due to the way hoe life goes. But Lets meet savior jesus, he said he come to the world as light and bring his people to sunshine, which means we used to live in darkness when we have no Jesus. Be simple, the life have no Jesus can be many darkness, the life have no light is no hope. Why Jesus come to us, where we can meet Jesus? The only place Jesus can meet us is a lowly and shabby place, do you want to know why? Because all people live there when their life have no God, no salvation. So give thanks to lord Jesus because He come to this lowly and shabby place and draw us out of darkness and bring us into light. When we satisfy with achievement we made it is hard for us to see how much we need God, then we see the pain and wounds the world give us, we are expecting the healing and renew from savior.
2019, a year to meet God in a personal way and a year to lay down our pain and hurts before God and to embrace the love of God , to have the light and the sight from truth and live a abundant life. For what matter to us is "【Zec4:6】 So he said to me, 'This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the Lord Almighty." The father God we have and trust will be our only source of strengthen and hope. We hold this believing and we across the limit of human being, into a land overflowing honey and milk, overflowing grace and love, for "【Phl4:13】 I can do everything through him who gives me strength." 2019, a year of new hope and new life, all things will work for our good and all things will reveal the glory of God on us.
