On Sunday we sang the song, “‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus.” I’ve often wondered about the line that says, “how I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er.” I wondered how it is that we, as such finite failures, could prove the power of the infinite, faithful God. Then I taught 1 Kings 17 and it all made sense.
Sunday’s message was about The Widow of Zeraphath and her time of trial and trust in the Lord. As she planned to use the last of her oil and flour, then starve to death, God had different plans. Her faith in God’s provisions for life and power over death proved God’s power!
I always get stoked about what I’m teaching, but this was an extra special one for me. This story has gotten Jenn and I through many times of doubt. I pray you’re blessed by it as well.
I am a living testimony of the title of this blog post.
I spent much of my teenage years living for myself, struggling with sin and hypocrisy. A big struggle for me was sexual sin. That’s one reason why I enjoyed teaching last week about an ex-prostitute named Rahab that God chose, saved, and used. No one is beyond God’s grip of redemption – even the people that we think are unforgivable or unsaveable.
If you haven’t joined us for our series called “The Forgotten,” we’re only 2 weeks in – tomorrow will be study #3. Watch last week’s message about Rahab below and watch the message about Phinehas here. If you’re an iPad or iPhone owner, you can watch them right from your device.
Or if you prefer audio, download them on our website or from iTunes!
Hope to see you Sunday morning at 10am. Tomorrow: Samson’s parents!
