We live in a world of unprecedented choices. We pick food from a buffet. We want the infinite choice of Amazon and on-line shopping. And we swipe right to choose a partner. But we can also bring the same mindset to God and the Bible. This message deals with how we can avoid the ‘choice mindset’ getting in the way of experiencing the blessing of God.
We can feel invisible in our relationships, invisible in our careers, invisible at school, even invisible to God. And feeling invisible can lead us to destructive choices. This message looks at a person who felt invisible but was transformed by the God who saw her.
Painful experiences can fuel doubt about God and where we stand with Him. But God meets us in our questioning and can lead us to a place of hope and peace. This message looks at how God responded to Abraham’s doubts and shows us what we can do when circumstances overwhelm us.
We live in a world of power politics, power couples and power grabs. And it’s distorted the way we see power. This message rethinks our relationship to power from the Bible and shows that we can be content to lend power instead of grabbing it when we know how to wait on it.
There’s a spiritual dimension to life that many people are blind to. Faith helps us to see decisions more clearly and understand reality in all its facets. This message looks at how to engage our faith to see life more clearly.
When God’s plan doesn’t seem to be working quickly enough, we often turn to our own plans and make things worse. When we do it’s only the faithfulness of an uncompromising God who can lead us out of compromise.
Some people are certain that, ‘God helps those who help themselves.’ Other people, ‘let go and let God.’ But what does the Bible really teach? This message looks at God’s plan to bless people and the caricatures of that blessing that we often turn to.
