Good-bye 2007

I am so looking forward to the end of this year! It’s been one of great testing and stretching of faith. I’ve heard from many others that they too experienced major trials in 2007.  The violence and hatred in this last week is just another example of the gross darkness of the world today.

In the Bible, the number 7 means completion! Oh, I am so glad of that . . . and the number 8 is new beginnings! Thank God.

And what a great way to start a year of new beginnings with prayer and fasting. Psalm 91 is one of my favorite bodies of Scripture. In it, we read about the Lord being our refuge and our dwelling place. A “refuge” is a place of safety, security and protection. A “dwelling place” is where one lives. God gives us a wonderful promise that we can live in Him and under His protection.

In these turbulent times, we need to know where we live! It is the Secret Place of the Most High! And we need to make sure we don’t just visit this beautiful place, but that we do indeed live there and rest in the presence of God. Yes, we are in this world, but we are not of this world.

Jesus earned our entry into the Throne Room. We have free access there, a place of peace, joy and abundance. As we begin this New Year, let’s all remind ourselves of our home address — The Secret Place of the Most High! And let’s enter into our Father’s presence with praise and worship as we draw closer to Him.

    My husband and I are in a brand new Ministry, Tabernacle of Praise here in Indiana. We are excited about what the Lord is going to do. Our fast will begin on 1/5/08 amd end on 2/5/08. We are doing the Daniel Fast also. Please pray for us and pray that souls will be saved and people delivered and that God will add to the church. “We pray that this Minisrty will be a different kind. A church that will be identified that is real and that has love for people. I believe that Jesus said,”By this(love) will all men know that ye are my diciples, in that we will have love for each other.” That is our goal.
