Derriford Diary January 2016

Derriford Diary Top image

I recently read that there are 7,000 promises in the Bible. That is 1 new promise every day for 19 years! This is where I want to put “Selah”. David would put that into his psalms when he made a point that was worth just stopping and thinking about for a moment.
As we start a new calendar year, lets take time to remember God’s faithfulness to us over the last year and to give Him thanks for all the promises that he has kept! Now we know there are so many promises to look out for, and He has been keeping those promises anyway, because that is what he is like, faithful, loving and full of grace towards us.
This year will see us celebrate the 50th anniversary of the building of Derriford Church, if we had been using the 7,000 promises, at one per day, we would only be in the third re-peat! The 50th year is special in the Bible, in every 50th year Israel was to have a big party and all debts were to be cancelled, and those that had taken jobs as slave laborers had to be set free so they could go home to their families. Any land that had been ‘sold’ had to be returned to its origi-nal owners. It was a time for everything to be reset, to start again. (Lev 25 v8-55)
As we start 2016, and approach our 50th anniversary, lets remember God’s faithfulness, grace and mercy and his promise that we will become more like Jesus as he works in us to grow us and through us to grow His kingdom in Derri-ford.
Many blessings, Lynne.
