Fellowship, aren't we so glad that God never takes vacations!?! Well, for those of us assembled "on purpose, for a purpose," we were blessed by the word preached by our Apostle/Pastor, Bishop-Designate Dr. Barbara E. Austin Lucas. With the sermonic subject, "GOD CAN DO IT AGAIN," we examined the words penned by the psalmist in Psalm 77. As only she can do, Bishop-Designate encouraged us to be determined not to repeat our past by knowing ourselves through knowing our history. To those who seek to learn from financially unfaithful spending patterns, learn the wisdom of LAYAWAY and PAY AS YOU GO. As a Fellowship, we began Rapid Debt Reduction teaching in 1999 with the assistance of Min. Carol A. Hunter of Prosperity Unlimited, Inc. With Min. Hunter's expertise, coupled with our Fellowship Financial Standard that teaches us to TITHE, PAY OUR BILLS, SEED, SAVE & INVEST, we witnessed the testimonies of those who owed no one nothing but to love! Changing up from "plastic up" to "cash up," afforded us the privilege of knowing the God of the Overflow! Yes, God demonstrated God's Ownself to be like water -- everywhere. God never requires us to give more than God can give to us. Today, we must be determined to correct our issues! If we relearn and revisit our lessons, we will have victory! Fellowship, GOD CAN DO IT AGAIN! Here is how we begin: 1) Stop trying to outrun God's Agenda, for God will ALWAYS WIN in the end; 2) Know that God brings something to your REMEMBRANCE for a purpose; 3) Morning by morning NEW MERCIES we see; 4) Embrace the NEW DAY God has provided; 5) God has made a promise and WILL NOT GO BACK on God's Own Word; 6) The SOLUTION is embedded IN YOUR HISTORY; 7) God is FAITHFUL in the midst of your unfaithfulness; 8) God OWNS IT ALL, so embrace your TEMPORARY CASH FLOW ADJUSTMENT knowing God can PROVIDE ANYTHING you are in need of; 9) Recall that THE LORD IS YOUR SHEPHERD, and you SHALL NOT LACK ANYTHING in obedience; 10) God HAS your back; and 11) God CAN DO it again! Now what? Get out of complain mode like the psalmist. Just stop it! Begin to RECALL (the numerous ways God provided before), REMEMBER (the ways you failed to obey God and godly instructions), and REVIEW (the lessons you learned and refused to learn to live in the Overflow of obedience daily). Let's give God praise for new days, new ways!!! In spite of it ALL, make today your NEW START!!! If God can do it again, we can too!!! Share this word with others to encourage them. Don't rob God by withholding your testimony. Tell them Bishop-Designate Dr. Barbara E. Austin Lucas said to tell them THIS: "You must obey what God speaks! God has your back! Despite what you're going through, know GOD CAN DO IT AGAIN!!!"
