CELEBRATORS…

You’re in a WAR whether you like it or not! There are TWO SIDES and no middle ground! You’re being called to something GREATER - but the OPPOSITION is sharpening their swords and ready to KILL! Are you going to RUN and HIDE? Or are you going to MAKE WAR and FIGHT for the best that is yet to come? Do whatever it takes to be there THIS SUNDAY as we spend a second week talking about a pretty Hot Topic for many people… WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE? Got some cool LIFE-CHANGE Stories to share with you in PART 2 this coming week – Don’t Miss It!

 

 

Below is a sneak-peek for this week…

(5) WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE? (Part 2)

 

Psalm 11:3… When ALL that is GOOD falls apart - WHAT can GOOD people DO?

(Answer… REST IN THE FACT THAT GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL!)

Psalms 11:4… "He is in His Holy Temple sitting on His Throne!"

 

Isaiah 55:8… My thoughts are not LIKE your thoughts - your ways are not LIKE my ways! (We're nothing LIKE God - but He is always is touched by our PAIN!)

 

Romans 8:31… "If GOD IS FOR US (Key Words!) -- Who Can Be Against Us?"

-Please remind yourself today… GOD IS FOR YOU!

 

YOU ARE SPECIAL TO GOD! So Special… He became FLESH and DWELT AMONG US - just so He could experience your PAIN and HEARTACHE and show you the way to VICTORY!

 

Next Time You're Hurting… (Read This!) ROMANS 8:38-39

-NOTHING (Absolutely NOTHING!) can come between you and our Father's Love!

 

Regardless of WHAT you may be going through… GOD IS STILL GOOD and GOD IS STILL POWERFUL! He CAN and WILL see you THROUGH - if you allow Him!

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9A / 10:45A)

CELEBRATORS…

You’re in a WAR whether you like it or not! There are TWO SIDES and no middle ground! You’re being called to something GREATER - but the OPPOSITION is sharpening their swords and ready to KILL! Are you going to RUN and HIDE? Or are you going to MAKE WAR and FIGHT for the best that is yet to come? Do whatever it takes to be there THIS SUNDAY as we talk about a pretty Hot Topic for many people… WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE? This is so relevant today for so many that we’ve decided to spend two weeks on it – so don’t miss Part 1 this week!

 

 

Below is a sneak-peek for this week…

(4) WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE? (Part 1)

 

GOD IS GOOD! (No Matter What!)

-Is your FAITH built on your FEELINGS… or the FACTS OF THE BIBLE?

 

Stop allowing the CIRCUMSTANCES in YOUR LIFE to determine your BELIEF IN GOD... and allow your BELIEF IN GOD to REIGN OVER YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES!

 

Think about this one…

How quick are you to BLAME GOD for the DIFFICULTIES in your life as compared to taking for granted HIS UNDESERVED KINDNESS He shows you EVERYDAY?

 

Never Forget…

JESUS came to CHANGE OUR HEARTS… NOT our CIRCUMSTANCES!

And so you know…

When our HEARTS CHANGE… how we VIEW our CIRCUMSTANCES... CHANGE!

 

Stop letting your TRAGEDIES identify YOU… move into the TRIUMPH that God is waiting to give YOU! (Get out of your Sheep Pen and go KILL YOUR GIANT!)

 

Never Forget…

God is not PUNISHING You with your TRAGEDY… He is PREPARING You!

(PREPARING you for something GREATER!)

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9A / 10:45A)
