Like Jacob, God comes to us with His tremendously loving heart, allowing these turning points in our lives to teach us this truth, it's better to trust in Him than ourselves!

Echoes of Christmas

Genesis 3:15

What does Eve's temptation have to do with Christmas? God wants our affections directed away from false gods that make us happy for the moment to focus on Him, His love. He wants to give us a new heart this New Year.

Good Medicine. Seeing God at Work in our Grief

Genesis 50:1-3

So it got a bit emotional... and that's OK. A grieving season is a difficult season. But when going through this difficult process, we can find "Good Medicine. Seeing God At Work In Our Grief."

It is OK not to be OK

Genesis 50:1-3

Even as God's children, we will endure pain, suffering and grief. When we stop depending on ourselves we ultimately find true comfort in no other place than in the arms of our Lord, who whispers to us "It's OK to not be OK".

One of God's Greatest Gifts

Genesis 8:6-12

Often God can send tests to teach us patience, so we stop looking to ourselves and we are compelled to look to Him. He limits our tests to encourage us to look forward to something better, one of His greatest gifts - hope!

The Wonderful Wait

Genesis 8:6-12

Waiting Is So Hard... Why?
God is at work in those times of waiting and gives us reason to embrace "the Wonderful Wait."

When It Just Keeps Raining

Genesis 7:17-24

We are tested on a daily basis so we no longer focus on ourselves and our own strength but shift our focus to Christ and the cross - because He passed the test for us!

When it rains, it pours

Genesis 7:17-24

When the rain is falling and there's more on the way...
...there may actually be blessings coming and opportunity ahead! When going through a season of testing, keep your eyes open for what God may be doing because when it rains, it pours.

When The Door Is Closing

Exodus 2:1-3

It's often said, "When God shuts a door He opens a window."
But what do you do when the door is closing? See how we get to live as people of hope by digging into what God does in the lives of Moses' parents in Exodus 2:1-3.

Healing Hearts

Genesis 50:19-21

If You've Ever Been Hurt By Someone, This Is For You. One of life's most difficult challenges is dealing with the ways people have hurt us. Thankfully, Jesus made reconciliation possible not just between God and us, but between us and others. He is "Healing Hearts."
1) When someone wrongs you, ask, "Am I in the place of God?" Then remind yourself what God's place is in all of this.
2) Christian forgiveness is not saying that the wrong someone did is okay or not a big deal. It means trusting that God is a God of justice who is setting everything right.
3) Our God is so big and so amazing that He can use the ways people break His world to bring healing to this world. That's what happened on the cross.
4) There is no wrong too awful that God won't use it to achieve something good.
5) There will be a day when your heart is completely healed and you are reconciled with others. The God who will heal you completely then is already at work in you now.

Sanctified Joseph

Genesis 50:19-21

Life is hard. Forgiveness is hard. As we study the life of Joseph, we see what he (and we!) can learn through hardship - 3 Godly life lessons:
1. Humility
2. Perspective
3. Freedom

Sanctified Abram

Genesis 12:4-9

Big Choices!
God has given you the opportunity to make choices and to trust Him as you step forward in faith!
1) God often doesn't take us where we're going immediately. It's a process. He is patient with us. Are we patient with God?
2) Along the way God gives us the opportunity to make sanctified choices.
3) We have more than the promises of God to rest on. We can hang onto the character and nature of God.
4) We are so quick to replace God's ways with our ways. We want God to follow our plan.
5) Fear is not defeated by our good plans but by God's presence.

The Incredible Journey

Genesis 12:4-9

You're Going Somewhere
God has called you out so you can step forward in faith. Like Abraham, you're on "The Incredible Journey."

oBEdient (Noah)

Genesis 6:22

The Key to Significance
God worked through Noah to preserve humanity on the face of the earth. Talk about significant! What was central to Noah's life of significance can be central to ours as well. We are oBEdient.

Sanctified Noah

Genesis 6:22

We all love heroes. But it can be a tall order trying to live up to them! Jesus, however, makes us heroic like Noah!
1) Some might say that Noah wasn't all that heroic. He just followed directions. But humans are notoriously bad at following directions, especially from God!
2) God has given us very simple directions in the 10 commandments but none of us follow them.
3) Jesus perfectly obeyed for us. We are saved through Him!
4) As Christians we aren't afraid because we're wrapped in Christ. We're safe in the ark!
5) We get to do something Noah didn't. We get to throw a lifeline out to others so they can be saved with us. We get to be heroic!

Principle of the Path

Genesis 40:14-15 and 23

So Close! But So Far Away......

The let-down that comes after getting your hopes up can bring an extra dose of discouragement and frustration.

Dear Church

Genesis 16:7-10

Church, You’ve Got Mail!

If God were to send a letter to the Church, what do you think it would say? Would it be a happy message? Would it be a challenging message? Would it be a message that changes your life? This weekend we hear a special message God brings to us by studying Genesis 16:7-10 with the message "Dear Church,".
