Trust and Obey

"Trust in the Lord will all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths." (Proverbs 3:5-6)   Trust is reliance or dependence upon the character, ability, strength or truth of someone or something.  Obedience is the act of following or complying with another's command or guidance.  According to Proverbs, when we fully trust the Lord, we will follow (acknowledge) Him, and He will prove Himself by directing our paths in the way we should go.  In this series we will learn about having a good start, establishing a reliable source, following a dependable plan, and making a practical application.  For there is no other way to be happy in Jesus than to trust and obey!

Turst and Obey Week One: Have A Good Start
January 5, 2014, Pastor Mike

MATTHEW 6:25-32—“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on.  Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not of more value than they?  Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?  So why do you worry about clothing?  Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?  Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek.  For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.”

2 TIMOTHY 3:15-17—“…from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.  All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

EXODUS 11:1—“And the Lord said to Moses, ‘I will bring one more plague on Pharaoh and on Egypt.  Afterward he will let you go from here.  When he lets you go, he will surely drive you out of here altogether.”

Turst and Obey Week Four: Make A Practical Application!
January 26, 2014, Pastor Mike

Hebrews 11:1-3 —"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.”
