Audio sermon

Dear Beloved,

Zephaniah 3:17

The Lord your God is with you,     the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;     in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
    but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Some things, you are going through, the enemy may have meant it for evil, but rejoice, God will turn it out for good.

Genesis 50:20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

Philipians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

God’s promise in the begining of the Year was – You and I are going to make this journey together. Your feet in my footsteps. If you have been distracted or strayed  -this is the time to bring yourself back on track.

Psalms 16:8 I keep my eyes always on the Lord.     With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Build your foundation on the rock Jesus Christ. In the month of June- The just shall live by Faith. Whatever the enemy comes with, you have to shield it with the Word of God.

Two things do always;

  • Rejoice in the Lord
  • Always be thankful

Psalms 79:13 [MSG]

Then we, your people, the ones you love and care for,     will thank you over and over and over. We’ll tell everyone we meet     how wonderful you are, how praiseworthy you are!

Pastor Rachel Sermon

Remain Steadfast.

The Two House Builders

Matthew 7:24 “So then, anyone who hears these words of mine and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on rock. 25 The rain poured down, the rivers flooded over, and the wind blew hard against that house. But it did not fall, because it was built on rock. 26 “But anyone who hears these words of mine and does not obey them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain poured down, the rivers flooded over, the wind blew hard against that house, and it fell. And what a terrible fall that was!”

Luke 12:48

Much is required from the person to whom much is given; much more is required from the person to whom much more is given.

2 Corinthians 12:7-9

But to keep me from being puffed up with pride because of the many wonderful things I saw, I was given a painful physical ailment, which acts as Satan’s messenger to beat me and keep me from being proud. Three times I prayed to the Lord about this and asked him to take it away. But his answer was: “My grace is all you need, for my power is greatest when you are weak.” I am most happy, then, to be proud of my weaknesses, in order to feel the protection of Christ’s power over me.

The delay is for something good and is for your development.

Acts 19:11

11 God was performing unusual miracles through Paul.
