Well the carnival is over and I want to thank all the brothers who came out to help with this en-devour. We may not have made the money we wanted to but, that is not the only reason we have the carnival. The fun and laughter we shared makes it all worth while. Thanksgiving is apon us, I pray that all of us will have a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the time we can with our family and friends. December is a time to prepare ourselves for the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. I hope everyone has a Very Merry Christmas.
“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us…raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:4–7
Oftentimes, people set their focus on what God has done in the past—how He parted the Red Sea, or stopped the sun for Joshua, or fed thousands of people with just a little boy’s small lunch. Yes, God has performed many amazing miracles throughout history, and it’s important that we give Him praise and glory. But at the same time, we also have to look forward to what God wants to do in our lives today. In this verse, Paul says that “in the ages to come” God would do things that far supersede anything He’s ever done before. I believe that the “ages to come” that he’s talking about is this day and time we’re living in right now. God wants to outdo Himself in our generation! Remember, God is a God of increase. Where you are today is not where you are supposed to stay. He has greater levels of His favor and blessing in store for you. Dare to dream big! Dare to keep a God-sized vision in front of you!
Dare to take hold of every blessing that the Lord has in store for you!
Christ Lives and God Bless,
Thomas Young G.K.
