Sermon Note (Pastor Ray Baven)3rd svc
Our future is in His hands. What He starts He will finish.
God always prepare me in this season for the next season. God knows exactly what He has prepared for me and He brings in people for us for the season.
Preach Grace ALONE and not Preach Grace A LOT.
Law command you to march but Grace invite you to dance!!
Holy Spirit is your dance Partner!
Whom the Son set free, is free indeed!!
When you dance with a brilliant dancer, the brilliant dancer makes you look good!
The brilliant dancer will lead us and not command us when we go the wrong direction. He will lead us in such a way we learn how to dance and not step on His feet so often.
Sometime when we get hurt when we get disappointed and when we wanna give up, Holy Spirit will tighten His grip and lead us.
When we step on His toe, He will just lead us. It is the grace of God that leads us not to step on His toe.
1 Thessalonians 4:1-2
Plea for Purity
Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God; for you know what commandments we gave you through the Lord Jesus.
1 Thess 4:1-2 (MSG)
1-3 One final word, friends. We ask you—urge is more like it—that you keep on doing what we told you to do to please God, not in a dogged religious plod, but in a living, spirited dance. You know the guidelines we laid out for you from the Master Jesus. God wants you to live a pure life.
Keep yourselves from sexual promiscuity.
Have u almost given up believing?
Prepare your heart to receive by faith. He kept His promise.
Even though it seems that heaven is silent. God is doing His best in your worst.
It seems that heaven is not coming to help.
Truly You are God, who hide Yourself,
O God of Israel, the Savior!
The whole of creation is mourning.
I know all things eventually work together for my good!
There is something I just don’t know.
When we start something we may be full of vision, but it is in the middle we don’t know, the holy spirit comes in when we don’t know.
It seems as if God is hiding. God hid Himself in the shadow, in the personality.
There are sometime when God seems to hide Himself in the season of our lives. God wants us to understand He is never absent. He will never leave me nor forsake me!
Our prayers are heard.
When God turns up, is perfectly on time!
Sometimes what we have heard from God may seems something unusual.
Sometimes God will speak to us in an unusual way or seems strange. But do it!
Some of us have to let go of something.
Some of u have to let go of something but it does not feel natural. God is the expert and He knows what is the best for me!
When we get through something it is fine! It is the process! God is shouting to us to let go and trust God!! Even though the instruction may seems weird!
Sometimes God seems to be hiding Himself and we prayed for sometime and thought why God did not show up.
God did not just want to show us the miracle of healing but the wonder of resurrection.
Jesus may seems not answering our needs. Jesus wants to exceed our needs! He wants us to experience the experience of wonders!
You are the God who does wonders;
You have declared Your strength among the peoples.
You are the God who does wonders! He seems to be late turning up because He wants to take us to another level of wonder!!
Jesus rose from the death!! He did the unimaginable! Jesus wants to do far above all that we can imagine!!
Some of u are really believing what has gone from difficult to impossible in your lives.
God turned up and has done above all that we can ask or imagine!
God did not turn up when it was difficult. He turned up when it was impossible
Hallelujah! Thank you.
Thank God for the pastors of Grace!
