April's Letter From Pastor Emmanuel
God told the people of Israel to move forward and make progress after staying too long in the same spot. The Lord our God said to us at Horeb, “You have stayed long enough at this mountain,” (Deuteronomy 1:6). He wanted them to make progress in their journey to the promised land. God does not delight in our stagnation as individuals or as an organization. We are expected to make good progress on a regular basis. However, progress in life is a function of both hard work and God’s help. It is not just by hard work alone. There are many people who are very hardworking but the results do not match their efforts. We need God’s help in all we do in life. Even when we have all it takes to make progress in life, we must always acknowledge Him as the source and sustainer of our success.
