February 2010 is now history and MARCH is upon us. All this month at The Bridge, Pastor Duane will be sharing about “Going Big–entering in 2010.”
Duet. 6:18 “And you shall do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord, that it may be well with you, and that you may go in and possess the good land of which the Lord swore…”
The B in BIG stands for battle. This battle isn’t so much a defensive battle, but an offensive battle–which involves going in and possessing the promises of God for this year. It dawned on me how ironic it is that we are beginning our study of “the battle” in March. It’s time to MARCH ON!
Joel 2:7 “They charge like soldiers, they climb over the wall like warriors. They all MARCH straight ahead and do not move off their path.” (New Century Version)
As we march forward, there will be giants in the land, “shiny objects” to distract us off the path, and the temptation to turn back. But, we are not those that shrink back and quit! We will courageously sojourn on and enjoy the “good land” God has promised us.
Hebrews 10: 39 “But we are not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.” (Message)
Have your received your MARCHING ORDERS for this year? Let’s go… Right, Right, Right, Left, Right. Right, Right, Right, Left, Right.
“Life is a series of experiences, each of which makes us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our MARCHING FORWARD.” – Henry Ford
