I was looking forward to getting back to the book of Acts. We will be finished in less than 3 or 4 messages with the entire book. It has been one of my favorite studies ever. I hope that you have enjoyed it.
As I thought and prayed about the message I decided that I believe the Lord has a different message for the morning and evening service. In one service we will be looking at What to do when you donâ€™t know what to do? and in the other service we will talk about how to Lift your Shield of Faith. I believe that you will get a blessing out of each of these messages. I hope you will invite your friends to come and be with you.
Just some thoughts that might help you get ready to be with us in the morning:
â€¢ What to do when you are faced with insurmountable odds and great enemies that you may have even brought on yourself or not?
â€¢ You have been making too many of your own decisions and doing too many things your own way!
â€¢ Has the joy gone out in your life?
â€¢ Have you allowed the circumstances to choke your joy and your love for the Lord?
â€¢ Have you allowed yourself to believe lies that the Devil would tell you?
â€¢ Notice that he didnâ€™t spend time beating himself up he simply went back and sought God!
â€¢ Something we must remember is that it is really not about our comfort or our needs but rather His glory
â€¢ He may for His glory allow something seemingly bad to happen to us
o Paulâ€™s thorn in the flesh
o Jim Elliot and the missionaries in Ecuador
â€¢ We have to be sure that we have the right value systemâ€”is it our comfort or His glory
â€¢ Have we truly died to ourselves so that He can get glory from our lives anyway that He wants
