22 Mar Hope Is On The Move (Online-Only Service | 03/22/2020)
God is with us and hope is still on the move.
In this season, God is inviting us to take our eyes off the storm around us, remember that God is with us, and know that hope is on the move. This season is an opportunity to bring Jesus back into the center of our lives. We weren’t expecting this storm, but God isn’t surprised, and He will use it for good (Proverbs 16:9). Wherever God is leading us is always better than where we’ve been; God’s steps are always better than our plans. Often in the middle of the storm, we begin to question God’s love for us, but He is with us, and for us, and cares for us (1 Peter 5:7). God’s faithfulness yesterday gives us faith for today.
Here are five things our leadership is praying for us and we can pray for others:
1. GOD WOULD USE THIS FOR GOOD
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. Genesis 50:20
2. WE WOULD REST IN THE FINISHED WORK OF JESUS
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me. Isaiah 54:17
3. WE WOULD HAVE AN AWAKENING
Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light. Ephesians 5:14 NKJV
4. OUR RELATIONSHIPS WOULD GROW STRONGER
Love one another. John 13:34
5. WE WOULD BE HOPE CARRIERS
Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with his super-abundance until you radiate with hope! Romans 15:13
1. What plan in your life has been interrupted and where can you see God’s goodness and grace in the midst of the interruption?
2. In this season, what is God awakening in your heart?
3. Take a moment to pray these points over your life.
We Pray That:
