A New Season and A New Day!

My prayer for this New Season and this new day for our Branches Family: I pray that our of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen

Branches, “do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Branches, do not look back but wake up to a new day and expect the Lord to come into our world this year in a fresh and power way. Don’t approach the future with a downcast gaze and a discouraged demeanor. But fix your eyes on Jesus! Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will also be given you.

It’s time for us to take our place in the Kingdom, to rise up and stand confidently in who we are in Christ Jesus. Do not shrink back nor waver but let us align our hearts with the Lord and let us run the race that has been marked out before us. Rejoice and be glad for the Lord is with us!
