Both Ps Murray and Ps Meredith are originally from South Australia, where they had served in the various facets of Senior Pastoral ministry in several churches over many years, being ordained in 1990. They have two sons, Chris & Tom.
They share a genuine love for people and a passion to see lives impacted with the miracle working power of God. Changing lives through the power of faith in God’s Word. Committed to seeing people turned from a destiny of meaninglessness into lives coming into connection with the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and through His power, healed, restored and re-established as people to learn the ways of the Kingdom of God and put them into daily lifestyle practice.
Happy New Year Everybody & Welcome to 2018
I declare this year 2018 to be a very exciting year. The season we call “New Year” is always a great place to declare a new beginning. Not a fresh start, but a new beginning in terms of believing that the things that have been sown in the past are beginning to spring forth. I believe that it 2018 is reaping time.
We all plant seeds, just by doing life, whether we are conscious of it or not. We sow seeds and I believe that it is time in 2018 that we reap. In your spiritual life, personal relations, in your finances, in every aspect of your life, I believe we are going to see the fruit of it springing forth.
The amazing thing about harvest is that you don’t have to pray for it, it will just happen. It’s a natural part of sowing and reaping.
Gal 6:9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
Now remember that it is a double edged sword. If you didn’t plant much, you won’t get much, but if you have been sowing in prayer, financially, and into the lives of others, then I believe that you are about to see a springing forth of God’s reward and goodness SHOWERED over you this year.
A time of new beginnings, so if you haven’t been sowing much, now is a great time to start. But be aware of anything that we don’t want to reap, and so that is what we “don’t” sow. Things like negativity, being self focussed, fault finding, unforgiving, taking the Word of God for granted, (God’s word is God speaking to you.) Instead plant good seeds of heart-felt worship, expecting divine appointments, studying the promises of God’s Word, having a generous & loving nature
Don’t lower your expectations, and let the enemy lull you into a place of losing hope & feeding on the (lying) thought that God will not do what He has promised. Dream again, hope again, rekindle huge expectations. Revive your faith, your daily confessions of the promises of God. Replant those promises & replant your faith confessions.
Always remember that God is your source. Meditate on His unconditional love for you. Remember, you are in Christ, ask Him how to move forward. Learn how to download by faith from Heaven. Your provision has already been paid for by Jesus through His sacrifice at Calvary, You can’t earn it, educate yourself to receive it, do enough good works, no, it has already been declared to be yours, and through the merits of the precious Blood He has qualified you to receive it. Remember that in Christ you have been justified, (Just As If You Had Never Sinned). Sadly so many Christians have no idea about these truths and so they continue to battle on in the natural. But let us make a change in 2018.
My heart’s desire is that in 2018 God would add His Super to my Natural, and the greatest thing to make sure you keep fresh is your times in the Throne Room, praising and worshipping God. It may seem that as you continue doing this nothing much is happening, but that is how it is with plants, when it seems like nothing is happening, suddenly they break forth and begin to reveal the life that is in them.
Become a tree of Righteousness.
We love you and partner with you in 2018 to advance the Kingdom.
Pastors Murray & Meredith.
