Trusting God in uncertain times
Glory to God!
We had a powerful meeting on Sunday as we worshipped the Lord and declared Christ's authority over our land during these turbulent times. As we took our stand against fear and intimidation, we were filled with faith and the assurance that God sustains all things by the power of His word (Heb 1:3)!
Natalie then shared KLF's leadership's position and advice on how we want to move forward as a church in the next few weeks. You can listen to what she shared here: "Corona Epidemic Opportunities."
"Trusting God in uncertain times" was the theme of Richard's message in which we looked at how Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert for 40 days to be tempted by the devil (Matthew 4). Richard showed us that while we are required by the government to isolate ourselves that we must not be unaware of how the enemy will try to use these circumstances to place doubt in our identity as children of God and doubt in God as our Provider and Protector. We saw how the enemy tempted Jesus to provide for himself, put the Lord to the test as His Protecter and how the enemy wants God's children to be consumed with fear and thinking about the virus rather than having their hearts and minds on Christ in worship of Him. Richard encouraged us to dwell in the shelter of the Most High and to rest in the shadow of the Almighty as we feed on God's Word, abide in Him and fix our eyes on Him as our Refuge and our Fortress in whom we trust (Ps 91:1,2).
As we "honour the king" (1 Pet 2:17) and respect the requirements of the government, we will not be meeting during the week or on Sundays until further notice. All meetings are therefore suspended for the time being but we encourage everyone to make every effort to stay connected through the various avenues of communication available to us.
Let God be your Provider, your Protector and your Priority during these uncertain times!
