God has been speaking to us here at Harbor Lights about this new year, 2017. Over the last several months He has given us the word flourish. So, what does that mean?
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the verb flourish means ‘to grow luxuriantly’ or to ‘thrive’. We believe that the Lord desires us in the Body of Christ to flourish and grow luxuriantly, to prosper in all that we do, to thrive in all areas of our lives.
In Psalms 72:7 it says “May all the godly flourish during his reign. May there be abundant prosperity until the moon is no more.” We believe that God designed each and every person to flourish. That is His plan for our lives. We were created to be creative, active, prosperous, successful and thriving individuals. We were each designed to be a unique piece in His Body and to do well where He has placed us.
In 2017, we want to take hold of what God’s plan is for us, to flourish and grow in every area of our lives. We want to succeed in every area; whether that would be in our jobs, our relationships with Him and others, or our gifts and talents. The list is endless! We will flourish. Will you join us?
