The Joy of Lord is our strength - therefore resist grumbling …
God is still on the throne…remember children of Israel
(Phil. 4:4-5; 2:12-17) The people of God in Book of Acts were not known for their grumbling, but for their joyful hearts as they shared good news (Acts 5:40-42).
Gospel is always good news.... to be shared
The Gospel thrives in overcoming impossibilities
The Bible is filled with stories of God’s people overcoming impossible situations …
God delivering His people from Egypt
Queen Esther/Mordecai evil Haman…
Or Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendnego in fiery furnace (Psalm 2:1-4)
Or Jesus feeding multitude
Or Jesus commissioning 12 to preach the gospel…(w/o any resources; but the Power is Holy Spirit) Acts 17:6 turned world upside down!
God wants to do it again!!!! The Gospel thrives in overcoming adversity and impossible situations. Therefore resist focusing on what we don’t have or what cannot be done and focus rather on what our God is able to do!
Eyes of faith to find new opportunities and focus on the possibilities of what our God is able to do and then do what He has called us to do…
Prepare hearts for Pentecost Sunday…
Prepare your hearts to receive His fullness…His empowerment…His guidance
You are the Temple of Holy Spirit…1 Cor. 6:19-20
Government never could shut church down…
buildings were never meant to represent God’s church…Acts 7:48–50;
you are the church!
More concerned that doors of your hearts open to Him to receive what He has for you
Welcome Holy Spirit into your hearts, your family, your home...
Close prayer. Ephesians 3:14-21
