Congratulations! You made it through 2020. Welcome to 2021. As the year started many were glad to say goodbye to the previous year. We were looking forward to a fresh start. We thought “this year has to be better than the last.” However, to me it was like 2021 said “hey watch this.” As we start a new year with prayer and fasting there has been one major theme on my mind.
For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 NLT
This year the enemy is not the news, the politicians, your friends, or your enemies. The enemy is the devil himself. In order to win a spiritual battle you have to use spiritual weapons. Prayer and fasting happens to be some of the most lethal. In these uncertain and unprecedented times it’s going to take the power and presence of God to carry us through. Let’s seek Him over these next 21 days like never before.
Remember that in order for our light to shine (as He commanded) there has to be darkness. As the world around us gets darker may we shine even brighter. I love you and believe in you Cultivate. God has called us for such a time as this. Seek Him and you will find Him.
Life on Purpose,
Lead Team Pastor
