God’s Truth vs. World’s Facts (Online-Only Service | 03/29/2020)

BIG IDEA:

God’s truth is superior to the world’s facts.

SUMMARY:

In this season, it is up to us to take the attention of our hearts off the facts of the world and turn them to God’s truth. Facts are all about what we can see, but, as followers of Jesus, we live by truth. (2 Corinthians 5:7 NKJV, 2 Corinthians 4:18) Faith is believing God’s truth in the midst of the world’s fact. We must pay attention to what God is saying to us. (Proverbs 4:20-22) The truth is that Jesus has given us His peace and His victory. (John 16:33)

 

1. LEAN IN 

Lean into what God is trying to do in our lives. This season is not about what is going on around us; it’s about what He is doing in us.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

2. LET GO

There are a lot of things we are holding onto right now; emotions, expectations, or pressure to make it happen. It’s time to let those things go and give them to Jesus. The things we love the most are the safest in His hands.

I lay all my fears before you and trust in you with all my heart.  Psalm 56:3 

But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit. Jeremiah 17:7-8

3. LEVERAGE THIS MOMENT

Use this moment of our lives for our advantage to connect with God and connect with people. 

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
