God’s Care: Think Big (#935)

God’s Care: Think Big (#935)

Today we’re going to continue our series on God’s care, which we began at the beginning of 2018. Looking at many of the ways God cares for us. And today and next session we’ll be talking about thinking big. Now, thinking big does not mean you necessarily have to dream up some great scheme and try to accomplish it; you certainly can, but the thinking big I want to talk about is thinking about how big God is and how He is able to come through for us in ways we can’t even imagine. So rather that have our thinking stuck on the situation we’re in and why won’t this situation work out, think about how God can do so much more for us wand find ways take care of us and bring us deliverance, and supply our needs, and direct our paths in ways we couldn’t even imagine. And to help u think big, both this session and next session, we’ll look at some wonderful records in God’s word about how God went way above and beyond anything anybody can imagine. And we’ll start with a verse today, and we’ll start with the same one next week too, II Chronicles 25 and verse 9.

God’s Care: Ask (#934)

Welcome to our first fellowship of 2018. We are off and running and we are going to get into a new series of teachings about God’s care for us. And we’ll cover a few of the topics we’ve covered before, but from the point of view of God caring for us and then we’ll cover some new topics. It will be a fun time. And as always, if there is a particular topic you are interested in or would like us to look at, just let me know and I’ll see if we can plan it into our schedule. But we’re going to start today with Psalm 105…
