If Only I Knew Where to Find God

Job lost just about everything; his sheep, his oxen, his camels, his servants, and all of his sons and daughters – His wife said, “Curse God and die”. Even God has not responded in any way to Job’s demand for answers. But Job is still asking and searching; maybe because if he stops, then he’ll have nothing left to live for. All along, his cry was “If only I knew where to find God, I would go to his court and plead my case, but I don’t find him anywhere”. —-more—-
Job’s words from Job Ch. 23
• Help us to know Our inability to find God
• Give us confidence to follow Him
• Help us to know how God would hide himself at times
• Help us to know our inability to influence God
• Bring a holy fear within us
Listen to the sermon to know more about the kind of God we serve. Here is the takeaway from the sermon.
1. Do not stop seeking God, if you stop, then you will have nothing left to live for.
2. As you are unable to influence God’s decision concerning your life, its better to work with God than trying to change Him
3. Blessings may not come easily, you have to wrestle with God as Jacob did.
4. God’s silence in your life doesn’t mean that God is absent.
5. You can never stop seeking and searching for God as you never know when God stops hiding himself to you.

Miracles – Sign for Unbelievers

The uniqueness of Christ is not the miracles He performed or still performs, the uniqueness of Christ is the atonement that He made for our sins by paying the penalty of our sins and making us stand before God justified.—-more—-

Eight Elements of Miracles:
1. Need
2. Purpose
3. Traditional Setting
4. Old Testament Relevance
5. Momentary Response
6. Lessons to Learn
7. Relevance to the Early Church
8. Relevance to the Modern Church

All the eight elements are explained with the help of a sample miracle Jesus performed from Mark 4:35-41. Listen to this interesting sermon.

Do you know the way?

God has promised us comfort in times of trouble. He has prepared dwelling places for us in heaven. He has assured us that he will come back to take us into the eternal home to live with Him for ever. But we need to know the way to get there. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”. Let us follow the Way.

Don’t Panic, Don’t be Complacent, but be Alert

Don’t Panic:
Pandemic can cause series of panic disorders over a period of time. God is telling us not to panic, but to activate God’s promises. Promises come true / get activated (miracles happen), when
1. Appropriated to your situation
2. Personalized to you
3. Believed for breakthrough—-more—-

Don’t be Complacent:
Let us not be complacent in this situation.
– like the man who received one talent from the master and did nothing with it.
– like the five virgins who were not willing to spend for buying extra oil.
Let us know the timing of God’s visitation, know the limitations we are in, work through our way, follow God, witness Christ and fulfill our calling.

Be Alert (Be watchful):
– Know the time that we are living in by reading the prophetic book.
– Listen to the only prophet of the New Testament, Lord Jesus Christ.
– Know that the current pandemic is not the end of the world, but it is the beginning of sorrows.

Listen to the sermon to know more about what God is telling during this difficult time.

Handling FEAR During Crisis

Overcome Fear by

3. Captivating your Thoughts

—-more—-Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God. – Corrie ten Boom “I prayed to dispel my fear, until suddenly, and I do not know how the idea came to me, I began to pray for others. I prayed for everyone who came into my thoughts – people with whom I had traveled, those who had been in prison with me, my school friends of years ago. I do not know how long I continued my prayer, but this I do know – my fear was gone! Interceding for others had released me!” – Corrie ten Boom
