May 2014 Bring You Abundance and Prosperity!


May 2014 Bring You Abundance and Prosperity!

I trust that you had a wonderful Christmas; one that was joyous, and filled with the spirit and peace of Jesus the Christ.

As we enter now into a new year, we should rejoice that we have the opportunity to start anew, and/or to continue along the course we charted in 2013. Whether you are now stepping out on faith or continuing along a selected path, I take this opportunity to wish you abundance and prosperity in every sphere of your life during the year 2014.

I encourage you to begin the New Year by presenting your plans to the Lord in prayers; fasting and thanksgiving. The word of God tells us to “seek ye first, the Kingdom of heaven”. 

This is the best time of the year to rise above fears and doubts and set lofty goals early. Do not allow procrastination to steal your dreams. Do not be intimidated by the challenges embodied in starting “a new thing”. Instead, recall the words of the great Psalmist and former King of Israel, David, who said:

“Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart,
all you who hope in the Lord.”  (Psalm 31:24-NKJV)

Not clear on what exactly you want to achieve in 2014?

We invite you to join us at the Christ Centered Empowerment Ministries, Inc., (CCEMI), in a 21 Day Daniel Fast to begin on Monday, January 6, 2014.  During those days of fasting, we recommend that you pray fervently for clarity and direction and we are confident that the Holy Spirit will point you to abundance and prosperity or whatever it is that you seek.

 For those of you who came to the end of the year, 2013, still facing unresolved challenges, with no apparent light at the end of the tunnel, Ibring you good tidings from the words of your Creator.  I address you with a spirit of optimism, and invite you to reflect on the words of God spoken through the prophet Isaiah:

18 “But forget all that—
it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.
19 For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”

                        (Isaiah 43:18-19 –NLT)

It is our prayer at the CCEMI, that you will face the world with renewed confidence and the blessed assurance that God has a plan for you, as He does for each and every one of us. While we may not be able to discern every detail of His plan at this very moment, of one thing we can be sure, (because He said it); it is a “plan to prosper us and not do us harm” (Jeremiah 29:11)

The Officers and members of the CCEMI, therefore happily, join me, in extending to all of you, the hope and optimism we share, that the Lord, our God, is getting ready to do mighty things in 2014 so that we may all be reminded that He is real; that He lives and that He cares deeply about you and me and wants us to live abundant and prosperous lives.

We invite you all to follow us on Face book and on our website listed below for the daily guidelines and devotions to be posted daily Starting January 3rd  as we prepare for, and launch, (on January 6, 2014), into a 21 Days Daniel Fast. Join us as we seek a deeper relationship with Christ, with the clear goal that we may “be transformed by the renewing of our minds…”so that we may model the gospel of transformation, we proclaim.

 May God Bless You All and Fill your hearts with Love, Faith, Humility and a relentless commitment to the Service of humankind in 2014 and beyond.
