I believe there is a principle that can be stated simply: "Preparation precedes blessings." In virtually any endeavor in life, preparation comes before accomplishment, success or victory. It is true in business, government, the military, sports and our walk with the Lord.
Jesus put this principle in HIS Word; Matthew 6:33, " Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you." Preparation consists of first seeking the kingdom and then, the blessings will come.
God has given us wonderful visions to grow the ministries at FBC of the Douglas Community. As the new year progress, we must start now to prepare to meet these goals.
To achieve the vision we need your cooperation, consistency, and courage to do more than you've ever done before. I can't do this alone. I need you to stand with me as we advance the gospel.
Together, with God, we can move mountains!
Abiding in Him,
Hoyt Bynum, Sr., Pastor
