A transition between seasons

In our team at the moment, there is that strange but deeply felt collision of diverse emotions attached to transition. DMM goes from being a team of ministers to a family of ministries. Each of the team now step out in trust and faith, to possess the greater tomorrow that lies before them.Just as it was that first Christmas when Heaven invaded Earth, the emotions surrounding the death of an era and the birthing of the new are those of great joy—and yet there is the very real vulnerability of facing that unknown tomorrow. ‘Tidings of great joy’ explode unlimited new possibilities and yet the comfort of predictability has been removed. It has always been so.

Transition is, by virtue of its intended purpose, a time of great faith. It is also a time to trust that the One who has ordained our new era has already gone before to light the path and make every provision. It is wisdom to trust Him!

Without transition, we forever linger in the shadows of what might have been and the sadness of watching others reach the fulfilment that could have been our own. That is a sadly impoverished existence that leads to regret and eventually, bitterness of spirit. Simply put, it is not an option!

As we celebrate yet another Christmas, I urge you to consider its intended purpose: Jesus said “I come to give you life and that MORE ABUNDANTLY!” Not an existence, not normality or predictability, not boringly secure in man-made boundaries of mediocrity, but rather an abundant, extravagant, audacious, faith-filled adventure of discovery!

The invasion of Bethlehem was in itself a daring and bold initiative with global implications. A King was born and a Kingdom given. The Author of that initiative now beckons you and I to be so full of His Spirit that we carry on that initiative and enable His conquest to continue.

This Christmas, thank Him for yesterday with a heart filled with gratitude and honour Him by embracing the new day He has already prepared for you.

Love and God bless,

David
