A New Year; A Fresh Start
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. – Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV
As we begin this New Year, we need to keep the above verse in our hearts and minds. We may have gone through trials in 2013 and may have already experienced trials this year. Nevertheless! God has great plans for you! We live in an evil world where Satan is trying his best to run things, one where not all people listen to God. God speaks to their souls telling them to stop or turn around but instead of listening they continue in their actions that may ultimately hurt themselves, you or someone else. But even if you have been hurt, God has great plans for you!
In Genesis, Joseph went through many trials: his brothers betrayed him and sold him into slavery and he spent many years in prison for something he did not do. But in the end God used Joseph to save many lives and this is what he had to say about it: “But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.” (Genesis 50:20 NKJV)
Look at your life as a mystery puzzle. The pieces are taken from a box without a picture and we begin putting it together piece by piece not knowing what it will look like in the end. God is the Creator of our life puzzle. He can see the whole picture, but to us it is a big mystery. Every day he adds another piece and we get a better perspective of our life, our calling(s), and our healing that is taking place. Eventually God will allow us to see the big picture and we will be amazed. Right now we “see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” (1 Corinthians 13:12)
Keep the faith and never stop believing. God does have a plan for you and it will come to pass! Keep pressing on and say (and believe!) this verse everyday: “ I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13) If you keep your eyes on Jesus, the year(s) ahead of you will be blessed no matter what the enemy tries to throw in your way.
Yours in The Lord’s Service,
Bishop Craig A. Cook, Senior Pastor
Deuteronomy 16:8 (KJV)
Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day [shall be] a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work [therein].

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
