We had 98 in attendance this morning, with several community visitors. Some of those visitors were here for the first time. Tomorrow is the 12th week since Hurricane Katrina hit. Three months out we are still having new visitors come. The field is white unto harvest, friends. We have some people coming this week from Jackson, TN and Jackson, AL to do some evangelistic work. Pray for these laborers to be fruitful. My morning message encouraged the listeners to Trust God At All Times. Psalms 62:8 says "Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge." TRUST GOD WHEN YOU FEEL ABANDONED. It may appear at times that God has abandoned us. David asserts that God will never forsake those who search for the Lord. Psalm 9:10 says, "Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you." God does not desert his people. Even when he ought to desert us, as we see things, He does not. TRUST GOD WHEN YOU FEEL UNLOVED. Why does God never give up on us? Because He loves us so. No matter what comes our way in life, the one thing we can count on is the love of God. Love is expressed is in the salvation which comes from God. Psalm 13:5 "But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation." In your mountain tops, and valleys, God is there. TRUST GOD WHEN YOU FEEL WEAK. We are often weak, unreliable, fickle … Still we know that we lean on and love a God who is dependable in every way. He saves us in his power. Psalm 20:6-8 "Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm." It is easy to trust ourselves, our money, our possessions, other people - all before we trust in God. God is the only one who deserves such trust. TRUST GOD WHEN YOU FEEL AFRAID. God is strong when we are afraid. Everyone is afraid at times. Fear is not always lack of faith, sometimes it is the need for assurance. Psalm 56:3-4 “When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?” We trust in Him because He is reliable. On a personal note ... my knee has felt better today. I haven't been up on it very much. As nightfall has come, the pain has intensified some, but not as much as the past two nights. Maybe it's getting better! At my house I have a few plumbing problems that need to be addressed, a roof turbine that has to be replaced, flooring, heat and air, and kitchen cabinets. Those are the big items. Hope everyone had a great weekend! I'll update you again tomorrow as opportunity allows. Below, John Sanders (left, Rhode Island) confers with a brother from Pensacola, FL.
