  A New Year, A New Season….

Dan 2:21 (NKJV)
And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.


A New Year, A New Season….

Happy 2013! I am glad we made it! 2012 was an interesting year, which ended off with speculation of the end of the World due to the ending of the Mayan calendar. I was reminded of the speculation during the Y2K bug as we crossed over from 1999 into 2000 as I heard all of the chatter about the end of the world.

Well, I am glad that the World has not ended but I am glad 2012 is over and that it is a fresh start in 2013. I believe that many times what happens in the natural realm is reflection of what is happening in the spiritual realm. As the first few weeks of January have passed as I write this, I have a great expectancy for this year. The Word of God talks to us about times and seasons in God. These seasons are not based on the natural seasons we experience in nature but they are reflective of the timings of God as we walk in His Will. Jesus knew His purpose and destiny but he was also conscious of God’s time (Jn 7:6). We too should discern the times and the seasons like the Tribe of Issachar (1 Chron 12:32) and we need to know what we are to do.

I believe the last few years have been times of realignment and positioning for many and that this year we will begin to enter into a season of reaping, a season of fulfillment of the Words God has spoken to us in the past. As we have been faithful, willing and obedient, God is going to begin to cause things to come together. I believe we are on the verge of a great awakening! As I speak to others and they share what God is doing in their lives, there is a similarity to what God has been doing in mine. They are sensing it is time to launch out in faith into something new. 2012 was a year of repositioning in my family and ministry and in 2013 we step into a new season as we launch City Harvest Church, USA in Irvine, California. Thank you for your prayers and ongoing support in helping us to make this vision a reality!

I am excited to see what God has in store for my family as well as for you and yours. Many of you are also sensing a new season coming. We are moving out of winter and into springtime! Don’t let anything hold you back from what God is wanting to do in you and through you. Let go of the old and move into the new season God has prepared for you. As we move into a new season, many times God brings about new positioning, new associations and new administrations. It can be uncomfortable and even painful at times but it is worth it!

Happy 2013 once again and may the Lord richly bless you!

With love,
