To the Faithful members and Friends of LLFGF, grace be with you, mercy and peace from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God. Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
This month we grieve the death of Deacon Noel Bryan. A faithful solider of Jesus Christ. Deacon & Missionary Bryan started attending LLFGF in 2012 and became a member in 2013. He attended church faithfully until he became too ill. On Monday 24th September God called him home.. We continue to pray for Missionary Bryan, Sister Delores and the rest of the family that God give strength.
I will use the words of “Bob Gass Devotional” to encourage you this month.
“In the book of First Chronicles the Bible tells us about a man named Jabez. The first nine chapters consist of genealogies, listing more than six hundred names. And right there in the middle of all those names, God singles out one man for special recognition, and his name is Jabez. There are only two verses in the entire Bible about this man, yet he’s given honourable mention above the six hundred other people mentioned in the chapter. Why did God single him out? What did Jabez do that caused his name to be preserved for over four thousand years? What made him above average? ‘Now Jabez was more honourable than his brothers’ (v. 9 NKJV). So, what set him apart? He dared to ask and believe God for great things: ‘Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.’ God wants you to ask Him for great things! He told Jeremiah, ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know’ (Jeremiah 33:3 NIV 2011 Edition). Paul tells us that God ‘is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us’ (Ephesians 3:20 NIV 2011 Edition). You can’t out-ask or out-dream God, so start asking Him for what you want – and believe He will give it to you! “
Thank you to Members and friends of The Light & Life Full Gospel Fellowship Church Landor Road for your continued support and commitment. Have a blessed and prosperous month. I pray that the October will be a time of peace and victory.
