Psalm 92:12-13 "The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God." We see that healthy growth on earth is directly connected to being divinely connected to the Heavenly realm. Your soul flourishes like a palm tree just as your spirit flourishes in the courts of our God. We want earthly success but it comes from the seeds that we plant in the Heavenly realm. In Matthew 6 Jesus looked at this same truth to teach His disciples how to pray. "Therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven." The blessing on earth comes from our relationship with our Father in Heaven. Stay connected to God above and be blessed in the earth below.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'Moving Forward.' There is an internal process in having external progress. Sunday evening weather permitting we will be enjoying an outdoor service on the church property. Food and fellowship as we lift up the name of the Lord Jesus. A good service to bring a friend.
Continue to pray for all those in need. Pray for the family of Dwight Conrad in their time of grief. Friends and family are welcomed to share stories and libations at the Old Triangle Pub in Sydney on Saturday, Aug. 15 from 5-7 p.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
