Featured Sermon "Only Believe" by Pastor Lloyd

Wednesday Weapon {06.29.11}

Psalm 37:23 "The steps of a good man are ordered of the Lord"

We all need to know that God has a plan for our lives. We only live one day at a time, but our whole future has been planned by God. I don't believe that everything that happens is God's perfect plan for our lives. God says, the future that He has for us is good and not evil. He says it is filled with hope. When we head off in the opposite direction that God has for our lives, we create our own destiny. We can step out from under His hand if we make wrong choices. Our ways are to delight Him. When the do, we can know that all things will work out for our benefit and for His glory.

Thank you Father that you have a plan for my life. I desire to walk in that plan. Help me to see Your way everyday of my life. Where I have missed it, forgive me. I make the choice today to get back on the right track and follow your leading from this day forth. Amen.

Staying Attached

   6- 22-11                                          Staying Attached
John 15:4&5 Abide in Me and I in you, I am the vine, you are the branch.
Attachment is  very important. What you are attached to, becomes a part of you. In the world that we live, it is so easy to become attached to things that can "Detach" you from the things of God. They don't have to be bad things, but when they detach or seperate us from Him, then they become bad. Priority is everything. Jesus tells us to seek Him first, then the things that we need can be added to us. He tells us in these verses that without Him, we can do nothing. He is refering to things of the Kingdom of God. We can still live life as everyone else, but we seperate ourselves from the One who can give us life abundantly. Take a look at your life today. Is their anything that you have attached to, that is pulling you away from Him? If so, then get priorities in order, reattach to Him, so He can be envolved in you life to a greater degree.
Thank you Father for Your Word, it is a lamp unto my feet. Thank you for showing me those things that have attached themselves to me, and have gotten my priorities out of order. I ask for Your help, that I can have the wisdom that I need, to help me get things back to where they need to be. I desire that You be number one in my life. More than anything else I desire to be attached to You.

Something's Happening!

Galatians 6:9 "Let us not grow weary while doing good."
Ephesians 6:13 "...and having done all to stand, stand therefore"

I read a story about a tree in China called the Chinese Bambo Tree. It said that for the first four years after the seed is planted, nothing seems to be happening. Then on the fifth year, are you ready for this??..... on the fifth year, it shoots up to 80 feet!!! Obviously, something was taking place underground, that would enable that tree to have a root system, that could take care of it when it grew to 80 feet.

When you stand on the Word of God in faith, it may seem that nothing is happening. Yet, during that time you are growing in ways you will never know until the answer is brought forth. You were developing "spiritual muscles" every time you confessed the Word. You may be their right now, don't you dare give up! You are just strengthening yourself for the victory that is on its way! In due season, you will reap if you don't give up.

Thank you Father that everyday I am strengthening myself with Your Word. I will not grow weary, I will grow stronger with each cofession of Your Word in faith. Any day could be my day for victory, so I won't give up, I will continue to grow up, and know that Your Word is working on my behalf. Amen.

Hebrews 12:1.... let US lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us.
I Peter 5:7... casting all of our care on Him for He cares for us

I am going to be talking Wednesday about, "Watching Your Weights!" I am not talking about body weight, but the weights of life that can easily get you down. I have noticed that sometimes people with a hurtful past, are still living in it today. That would mean their past, has not passed. It is still present in their thought life, and can effect them like a ball and chain. It can become a weight, that ensnares them, and still has an effect on their life.

Jesus has told us in His Word that we can give that pain, that hurt, to Him, because He cares enough about us to take it. The key words are, let US lay aside, and OUR casting of OUR cares. Give it all to Jesus, let Him set you free.

Thank you Father that I can give my past to You, and move on to what You have in store for me. I refuse to allow my past to dictate to me my future. I lay them aside, I cast them on You, because You love me that much. Thank You for setting me free from all that has had me bound. I chose to move forward to the things that are ahead.

I John 4:4 "For greater is He that is in you than he who is in the world."

Romans 8 :31 "If God is for us, who can be against us."

Good morning to you all, and happy June 1st! In the world that we live, it is comforting to know that God is with us. He says in His Word that 'He will never leave or forsake us.' It doesn’t matter how bad that it may be in your life, God is still with you. As you go through your day today, keep that in mind, “God is with me, God is for me, and I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.” Keep a smile on your face, and cause people to wonder what your up to!
