Happy New Year


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Deuteronomy 33: 24-25 “And of Asher he said; Asher is most blessed of sons; let him be favored by his brothers, and let him dip his foot in oil. Your sandals shall be iron and bronze; as your days, so shall your strength be.”

In his blessing, Moses was desiring that Asher would have a blessed relationship with all the other tribes (favored by his brothers), would have a life of prosperity (dip foot in oil) and that he would be blessed with strength (sandals of iron and bronze).

I would like for a moment to reflect on that last phrase “as your days, so shall your strength be.” I believe this part of this blessing is something that God blesses all of us with. He may not give to each of us prosperity or family blessings as He blessed the tribe of Ahser, but I do believe that God desires to give each of us “His Strength”.

Paul tells us in Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me.” The part we learn thru Deuteronomy is that God blesses us with strength for the days trials. The point is somedays I may need more and others I may need less but God knows the amount I need and the reason I need it and He is in control! I think you should also remember God gives you strength for everyday not just the days you want it but strength for every day!

I do not know what 2018 is going to bring but I do know that God knows, and He will give us all the strength we need and when we need it. So, all we must do is rely on His strength and keep our trust and faith in Him!

Prayer needs: Shelby Borton (Baylor Hospital, ICU in Dallas), Cherry Gleason (Northern Oaks, Old Anson RD), Jim Curtis, Danise Weise's mother (Health South)

Sunday evening: December 31st (this coming Sunday) we will have a game night bring snacks and we will enjoy a time of fellowship

We will have a Welcome Committee meeting Sunday, January 7 immediately following the Morning Worship Service.

Just one more Sunday this year, I pray that you will join me this week as we worship for the last time this year.

Thank you all again for all the cards and gifts. I am looking forward to 2018 and God’s blessings to PBC! Thank You LORD for all your blessings and Promises!

I hope to see you all one more time in 2017!

 

Your pastor and friend

Bro. Keith
