Excerpts of Pastor James Bamidele Sturdivant’s Message at the Sunrise Service on Sunday, December 10, 2017
You must have a mindset that you will end this year better than it started; hence, you need to change your mindset. Romans 8:37 says "Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us." You cannot pigeon-hole God as to how He will make things happen. You can't hold God to one way to do something. Since God is the all-sufficient God (Genesis 17:1), He cannot be pigeon-holed into how He would do a thing. This means that God has multiple ways and multiple means, using multiple people to brings to pass what He says He will do before this year ends. This can happen because according to Psalm 46:7 which says "The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge," we see that God is on our side and He has an army backing Him up. The fact that Psalm 46:7 says He is the LORD of hosts, He has an army backing Him when He comes to fight on your behalf. When God fights on your behalf, it doesn't matter whatever the situation is, He will still make things work for your good.
