Sunday Encouragement September 21, 2014

This morning in Sunday School we had a partial message watching part of a study video by Perry Stone.
In church the praise and worship time led to an overwhelming presence of God. Pastor never got to his message as he allowed the spirit to have time in a message, time of dedication and prayer, and more worship. It was very awesome.

The passages that Pastor gave before benediction were for affirming and strength in the times of trouble.
1 John 4:17-18 Amplified:
17 In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love [g]turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear [h]brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection].

Philippians 1:27-28  Amplified
27 Only be sure as citizens so to conduct yourselves [that] your manner of life [will be] worthy of the good news (the Gospel) of Christ, so that whether I [do] come and see you or am absent, I may hear this of you: that you are standing firm in united spirit and purpose, striving side by side and contending with a single mind for the faith of the glad tidings (the Gospel).
28 And do not [for a moment] be frightened or intimidated in anything by your opponents and adversaries, for such [constancy and fearlessness] will be a clear sign (proof and seal) to them of [their impending] destruction, but [a sure token and evidence] of your deliverance and salvation, and that from God.

I was looking for a song of strength and steadfastness; a song recognizing we have no need of fear of the world if our faith is in Christ.  I found some really wonderful songs by Don Moen put to video (thank you Mich and others). It was a hard choice but this is the one I selected for today:
Your Love Never Fails!
Verses for Today:
Psalm 112:6-8
6 Surely the righteous will never be shaken;
they will be remembered forever.
7They will have no fear of bad news;
their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
8Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;
in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.

Lord - I give thanks that I stand assured in my belief that God is my Creator, Christ is my Redeemer and the Holy Spirit is my Counselor and Comforter.
