Pastors Message

Senior Pastor, Reverend Dr. Alice Purvis
Reverend Dr. Alice Purvis
Psalm 127:1  Unless the Lord builds the house, we labor in vain.

or consider Provers 19:1  We make our plans, but it is God who establishes our steps.

First of the year, resolution time.  But really what we need to resolve is already evident.  In what ways are we leading our lives, deciding what's next, edging God out of control?  Its easy to do.  We make a plan, go with what seems obvious or feels good or fun.  We are logical people afterall, for the most part.

But the truth is God's wisdom goes beyond anything we can know or see.  Which is why in Hebrews the writer points out the truth about faith.  Faith is the evidence of things hoped for and the conviction of things not seen.  Hebrews 11:1

The best part of planning begins with planting ourselves in God's will.  Remember the Lord's prayer!  Not my will, but thine!

So best resolution of any given day, put God first, in your thinking, praying, planning and considering.  Start with God.

Happy New Year
Pastor Alice
