“Public victory comes from Private discipline.” - Levi Lusko
Jesus said it this way:
But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
The recent city council decision was the result of hundreds, if not thousands, of “private victories,” people within and without this congregation praying for the will of the Lord to be done. The city council’s decision was God’s way of telling us this is a “new day,” that He isn’t finished magnifying His name through this fellowship! I’m so excited to see what the Lord has in store for His people. As I look forward to what the Lord will do, here at CWC, I’m reminded of those famous words uttered by the actress Bette Davis, in the film “All About Eve” – “Fasten your seatbelts…it’s going to be a bumpy night!”In this glorious “venture” of faith called Calvary Worship Center, there will be bumps, twist and turns ahead of us; but we will also witness God’s “glory,” as the Lord blesses us above and beyond what we can ask or think!”
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.
In this “new day” we must leave behind the “old days,” that we might see God do a “new thing” in our midst, according to His power! Our part is to stay in the “secret place,” to “fasten our seatbelts,” through a life of dedication and devotion to the Lord, and He will do the rest; “But seek first the Kingdom of God…” (Matthew 6:33). It’s time to press on in our upward call; because greater things are yet to come, greater things are still to be done, in this city!
For His Glory, Pastor Al
