God Has Not Forgotten You

God Has Not Forgotten You

Date: November 29, 2020

After a year like 2020 it’s easy to have moments of anxiety, fear and panic, and even to wonder at times if God has forgotten you in the midst of all the chaos. Noah must have felt the same way during that long year when he was closed off inside the ark. Yet during that terrible trial, we read the beautiful words, “But God remembered Noah,” and we discover that he had never been out of God’s care for a single day! Whatever struggle you may be facing right now, take heart in knowing that God has not forgotten you!

God’s Light of Hope in Dark Times

Date: November 15, 2020

Sometimes when life is at its worst and dark clouds are all around, you can be tempted to wonder if God has abandoned you. It was during a period just like this when a young pagan woman named Ruth put her faith in God and chose to follow Him. God drew her out of the darkness by His grace and literally changed the course of history through her. God is still looking for people who are willing to stand up for Him when no one else will. Are you that person?

The Spiritual Collapse of a Nation

Date: November 8, 2020

How is it possible for a nation to be founded upon the Word of God, yet end up completely corrupted by sin and wickedness? The Book of Judges says this happens when everyone begins doing what is right in their own eyes. Any nation that abandons the moral absolutes of God will soon drift off course and become foolish in their thinking, and this will ultimately lead to their downfall. Has this already happened to America, and if so, how can we correct our course before it’s too late?

The Downward Spiral of Sin

Date: November 1, 2020

No one ever thinks that sin will completely destroy their life. Sin usually starts out small, but it continues to grow until one day it has control over us and we find ourselves enslaved by it. Disobeying God in some small way today may not seem like a big deal, but it will eventually lead us to a destination we never intended to go! We must be alert to the small areas of disobedience in our life, and never be content to let them go unchecked.

You Can’t Follow God by Accident

Date: October 18, 2020

How would God rate our service to Him right now? Is it a sincere, fully-devoted service, or are we still holding onto things that displease Him? Living a life of faithfulness to God will not happen by accident. It will only happen if we choose to put Him first every single day of our lives, and put to death every “idol” that is taking His place. Is there anything God has told you to get rid of that you are still allowing to reside in your heart?

When Victory is Followed by Defeat

Date: October 4, 2020

Throughout history, many victories on the battlefield have been immediately followed by crushing defeat. This is a syndrome called Victory Disease. It is brought on when the euphoria of winning dulls the senses and creates a feeling of invincibility. The same thing happens in the Christian life. We’re standing one day and crawling the next. We must never let down our guard, especially in moments of triumph.

Seek the Lord While He May Be Found

Date: September 27, 2020

How long can a person continue ignoring God and pursuing sin before judgement comes? Throughout the Bible we see the incredible patience of God towards those who keep turning away from Him. He gives them many opportunities to repent, but the clock is ticking on His patience, and one day it will end. Are you still running from God? Call on Him today before it’s too late!

The Danger of Living in Disobedience

Date: September 20, 2020

“It’s just a small sin… it’s no big deal!” We are so quick to convince ourselves that God is willing to tolerate our sin, as long as we are still going to church, giving some money, and doing religious things. But even the smallest amount of known sin in our lives contaminates our entire relationship with God, just as a small amount of poison contaminates an entire glass of water. Are there areas of disobedience in your life that you have been tolerating? Bring them to God today!

Don’t Wait for a Better Time to Follow God

Date: September 13, 2020

It’s easy to follow God when you don’t have to risk anything; when you’re healthy; when you’ve got money; when there’s no trouble in sight. But God calls us to follow Him when our strength is failing; when there’s no money; when the path ahead is filled with obstacles. Has God already called you to obey Him in some area, but you’re waiting for a better time? Right now is the time to step out and follow Him by faith!

Don’t Let Your Sin Keep You From God

Date: September 6, 2020

If you’ve ever thought that God would never accept you because you have sinned too much, then you are believing a lie. Your sin, no matter how awful it may be, is no match for the blood of Christ! Today’s message shows us how a woman named Rahab, who was looked down on by everyone because of her sin, found forgiveness, salvation and hope because she believed by faith. Don’t let your sin keep you from God!

Following God in Days of Uncertainty

Date: August 30, 2020

What do you do when some traumatic event has left you shaken, broken, and filled with worry? What do you do when the future looks so overwhelming that fear paralyzes you from moving forward? The same help that God gave to Joshua is available to you right now. Yes, you can continue following God, even in days of uncertainty!

Trusting God to the Very End

Date: August 9, 2020

Imagine being told that you only had a few days to live. That would be very difficult for anyone to hear! That’s exactly what happened to Moses, and we can learn some crucial lessons from the way he responded to that news. Do we know what it takes to trust God so much that, like Moses, we will trust Him right up to the very end?
