Are You Ready for New Season?

I believe that 2013 will be a season of overflow; overflowing in favor, miracles, and in the glory of God. All of His covenant blessings will be accelerated into our lives, if we will obey His voice. 
Isaiah 1:19 confirms it; “If you are willing and obedient, you will experience the good of the land”.
Let me encourage you to make sure that God’s voice is the first voice you hear every morning… His voice is the one that really matters anyway. So many voices are vying for our attention, but can they really deliver the peace, the wisdom, or the answers that God’s voice can? 
After you hear His voice, the critical words of others will have little affect on you… 
After you hear His voice, the fear-laden words of those around you will not influence you… 
After you hear God’s voice you will be able to face every evil report with faith and confidence.

“Great peace have they which love Your word, and nothing shall offend them.” Psalm 119:165
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is settled on You, because they trust in You.” Isaiah 26:3

We know that God will cause all things to work together for our good in our lives. So let go of everything that slowed you down, and get a new perspective for 2013… 

Expect to hear His voice, trust Him, and don’t ever stop or give up. Your future is in His hands and it’s good!

Blessings and Peace, Pastor Karl.

Greetings from Karl and Kathi Barancik!

Merry Christmas to you !

I love this wonderful salutation and it’s the only one I use this time of year.

The real reason for this influx of folks in the malls, the time off employees and school students enjoy, and the special discounts and sales are all because Jesus Christ came in the flesh… Christmas is about Jesus!

Everyone wants to take advantage of this season, but not everyone wants to acknowledge the true reason why. Many call it the Holiday season trying to take the power and spirit of God out of it, but it is all about Him, God’s Savior for the world, Jesus!

Jesus is the Joy of all the earth!

Jesus is God’s good will toward all men!

Yes, Jesus is the reason for the season!

It’s about giving because the God who loves us so has given His greatest, most precious and priceless gift… Amen!Remember Him this season when you are opening packages of love; when you are celebrating with family and friends; and especially when your being trampled in shopping lines finding that last minute gift (just kidding on that, well maybe not).

Make Jesus the center of this season and every season of your life… 

Blessings to you and yours…    Karl and Kathi
