Sunday Words of Encouragement August 10, 2014

This morning was interesting. Both our Sunday School teacher and our Pastor had worked on preparing their lesson/sermon but God did not let either of them complete their plans. Instead, they both were open to allow the Spirit to move. In Sunday School we discussed the events occurring in Iraq where ISIS terrorists are killing Christians, including the unspeakable evil of brutally beheading little children. We are beyond distressed by these events and some people may question “Where is God?”  Yet we know that God is in control. We must PRAY that the Christians remain strong and trust in God.

Pastor’s message was in the same vein. He asked us to focus on Jesus and trust in God. We are to PRAY for the circumstances; pray for our brothers and sisters throughout the world.  But we should not dwell on the trials and not wallow in sorrow. In times of trial and tragedy falling apart does not help. We must stand and declare God’s faithfulness, declare faith in God’s word. God is Love; He loves each of us. We are all the same. We all have hearts that can be broken, hearts that need love and hearts that need to know that God is with each of us. 1 John 4:4-8, 15-19.

I wasn't sure what song video to look for.
I put in "God is in Control" and this fitting video was listed:
God IS In Control!
A Verse for Today:
Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

“Let go of your concerns! Then you will know that I am God. I rule the nations. I rule the earth.” (Psalm 46:10 GW)

I am praying for my brothers and sisters around the world. Lord please help me stay focused on the important things - Trusting You and sharing Your good news.
