-( Colossians 3:3-: For ye are dead and your life is hidden with Christ in God.)

Calvary Greetings! Your family is blessed and lifted in Christ Jesus

# I cannot believe it's December already wow! It’s like the days, weeks, and months of 2023 rode on the back of the famous roadrunner. 

# Before we all could blink our eyes, the roadrunner has fast-tracked us to December already.

# Despite the speeds and bumps of 2023, we bless the Lord that we are still here. And we thank the Lord for His mercy, grace, and faithfulness to us all. 

# The last twelve months have been remarkably interesting and challenging, to say the least.

# Individually and collectively many of us have had our own fair share of the troubles and storms of life. 

# These past twelve months were remarkably interesting for many of us in terms of life’s struggles and challenges. 

# For some of you, your health has been an issue. The pain and the discomfort that you have to deal with daily, have almost pushed some of you to the edge of almost giving up. 

# The challenges and limitations we face due to ill health made life very exhausting for so many people mentally, physically, and emotionally. 

# But despite all your struggles you kept on, keeping on. The Lord said to tell you, well done thou good and faithful servant.

# Permit me to say that for some of us this year, like no other, has had our faith tested and strengthened at the same time. 

# Unfortunately, many also fell off the wagon of faith due to hardship and life’s struggles.

# Some of us witness the sudden passing of our loved ones. 

# The sudden translation of one of our church family members personally shook me to the core. But in all this, we still judge God faithful. 

# All of this, along with all that is happening in the world presently, does have the capacity to shake one's resolve and faith in the promises of the Lord to His people and cause some of us to begin to doubt and be discouraged.

# Unfortunately, many became discouraged in the last twelve months and lost faith in the Lord and His word. 

# It is sad to see, but we keep upholding our brothers and sisters up in our prayers- praying for strength and divine restoration for those who are struggling with their faith, due to all the challenges of life.

# But a sizable portion stayed the cause like Job declaring through their actions.

(Job 13:15-: Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.)

# A few fell away but a majority stayed the cause like Job. Trusting The Lord, holding unto His promises, and still believing that our eyes shall see the goodness of the Lord. 

# We still believe that He that will come, will come, and not delay. I am confident that the Lord will surely come through for us all in Jesus’ name. Keep holding on- don’t give up.

# As we get ready to start another twelve months circles around the moon and sun. 

# It is always the custom of the Holy Spirit to give us a sure word from the throne of grace that will help to keep us steady and focused as we navigate the days, weeks, and months ahead. Our anchor holds strong in Christ through His sure word.

# I hear a new word of encouragement in my spirit for us. And that word is -SECURED IN HIM- NO FEAR. 

(Colossians 3:3-: For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.)

# We are safe in the perfect love of God, free from all forms of external aggression and attacks. 

# The storms will rage, but our anchor holds strong in Christ because we are secured in Him.

# We are secured and perfected in His love, free from condemnation. We remain secure in His love, free from fear. For perfect love of Christ eliminates all fears. 

(1 John 4:18-: There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.)

# Because the Lord, our God is our hiding place, we will feel very secure and safe no matter what comes our way.

(Psalm 32:7-: Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.)

# Secured in Him- means you and your family are well preserved.

# Secured in Him- means you and your family are encamped roundabout by the angels of the Lord.

# Secured in Him- means you are at peace, no matter what.

# Secured in Him- means you and your family will enjoy unlimited security and protection under the watchful eyes of the Lord.

# Secured in Him- means you and your family are firmly attached to God, nothing can move you out of His grip.

# Secured in Him- means you and your family are protected against all forms of satanic threats and attacks.

# Secured in Him- means that you and your family are so at peace and rested in Him that you feel no apprehension no matter what.

(Do you know that secure is a Latin word “SECURUS”- meaning – feeling no apprehension)

# Secured in Him- for you and your family, will then mean free from anxiety, fear, worry, and nervousness that something bad is going to happen.

# As the world gropes in darkness and confusion because of all that is going on around us. You remain calm because we are -:

# Secured in His power & love.
# Secured in His grace & mercy.
# Secured in His compassion & kindness.
# Secured in His Faithfulness & forgiveness. 

# No matter what comes your way in the coming months and years, remember this my, brothers and sisters, that you and your family are secured, saved, and sheltered in the secret place of the most Him. This is why we shall choose not to live in fear. 

# Stay secured and save in Him, and it shall end praise. 

(Job 11:18-: And thou shalt be secure because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.)

Merry Christmas and a fear-free New Year to you all!
