In All Things Give Thanks

  • Date: December 10, 2018
  • Verse: “There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.” (Proverbs 19:21)
  • Summary:

    I just want to encourage us, when sometimes you think it's out of hand, sometimes when you think Satan is preeminent and he's in charge, when you seem to think that there's no way that these circumstances-all of these circumstances that demand failure, demand defeat, demand the loss of your job, demand the loss of your home, demand the loss of your life, whatever it might be, I want you to know something. Nothing happens if it's not in the counsel of God's will. So in the midst of it all, we give thanks.

We Have a Godly Inheritance

  • Date: December 6, 2018
  • Verse: “In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will…” (Ephesians 1:11)
  • Summary:

    You see, sovereignty doesn't mean we just sit back and wait for things to happen. Sovereignty demands that we become a prayerful people, a people of faith. You would think that sovereignty just says, "Well, if it's God's will, it's going to be done." No, no, no! The Bible teaches prayer presupposes sovereignty. Why pray if God's not powerful? Why pray if God doesn't have a plan? Prayer doesn't change God; prayer illuminates us.

What God Has Purposed Shall Come to Pass

  • Date: December 3, 2018
  • Verse: “The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand …"; “For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?” (Isaiah 14:24, 27)
  • Summary:

    Isaiah 14 says it this way, as we're looking at the greatness, the bigness of our God. He is omnipotent, all powerful. He is omniscient; He knows all things that are going on without the help of The Washington Post and CNN. But the great prophet Isaiah speaks here in the fourteenth chapter. This prophetic Scripture, which is two-fold for the time that it was written-Babylon and for the prophetic deliverance that will come to Israel in the time of the Tribulation. It reveals the heart and character of God, Who He is. Isaiah 14, verses 24 and 27.

His Purposes Cannot Be Restrained

  • Date: November 30, 2018
  • Verse: “I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.” (Job 42:2)
  • Summary:

    Look over at Job 42 for just a second. I've just been criticized recently about the style of my teaching, if there is one. The critics have felt that the only real productive and scholarly method of teaching is expositional teaching, expository teaching. I don't believe that. First of all, the Bible-the greatest teacher in the world, Jesus, never taught expositionally. He taught topically. He took from books all over the Bible and brought forth practical truths for the moment. That's how Jesus taught.

We Need to Like What God Likes

  • Date: November 26, 2018
  • Verse: “But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.” (Psalm 115:3)
  • Summary:

    We think we're so sneaky. We think we can get away with things. God is omniscient and guess what? He is omnipotent, and you are not going to get your way! Period! Throw it out, because our God is sovereign. It makes life easier, so just figure that out today. Get the right theology and surrender. It'll make life much easier on you. He will do whatsoever He pleases. That means He'll raise up some people and bring down others.

Nothing Thwarts God’s Purposes For Us

  • Date: November 21, 2018
  • Verse: “But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.” (Psalm 115:3)
  • Summary:

    Lt's talk about how the awesomeness of God is able to get into our hearts and into our lives. How do we confront that on a daily basis, the ability to receive that grace? First of all, let me share with you that you will never, never, be able to come and attain that place that makes you worthy. It's always a gift. It's always grace. It's always the mercy of God to us, isn't it? But it is the will of God for us.

    So let's turn to Psalm 115.

God’s Goodness is Great

  • Date: November 19, 2018
  • Verse: “Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!” (Psalm 31:19)
  • Summary:

    Goodness is God's purpose for us, kindness is God's purpose for us, but there is a thief that is running around seeking to devour us, isn't there? There's a conflict constantly in the kingdoms that are warring (the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness), and they're at war. There's a constant conflict, and Satan is going about seeking whom he may devour. He's come to kill, steal, and destroy, hasn't he? Some of us have had our health stolen. He comes to kill, steal, and destroy.

God is Good in All Things

  • Date: November 12, 2018
  • Verse: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
  • Summary:

    Jesus is coming back real soon. The stupidity is supernatural, and so don't get caught up in your emotions, in these last days, about the stupidity of the politics of our country. Just rejoice that the Lord is coming back soon. Otherwise you'll get distracted and upset for no reason at all. God's will is being done!

    We're going to talk about that a little bit. We have been talking about the goodness of God-and so thankful for that.
