A Note from Wayne


We have now entered into the new year of 2017 with our eyes being wide open, and our ears attentive to what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the church for this new season. Our simple prayer is this:

Lord help us to conform the attitude of our soul in respect to your will for us on this day and throughout this year.

We have a desire in our hearts to respond to your wooing us to you. To concentrate our spiritual abilities in our consistent movement forward to achieve the things of heaven and that they be manifested in the things of the earth. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

As we learn to wait on You in this season, develop patience in our faith. When we look at the definition for “wait” it describes an eager anticipation and yearning for the revelation of truth and love as it is in the Father.

Ps 62:5-8

5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.

7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

So as we advance ahead throughout the New Year, let us remember not to get out ahead of you, Oh God. Nor to lag behind of you either. But to learn to wait patiently on your direction for our lives. I, again, just want to give thanks to you, Father God, for the revelation of your truth, and for your unfailing love you have towards us. Use us, oh God. We pray this day in Jesus’ name, Amen.

 
God Bless,
Wayne Sanders
