Life revolves around making decisions and answering questions. There are three questions that we are all forced to answer and three decisions that we are all forced to make that not only have the greatest impact on the time we have on earth, but any impact we are going to have once we leave it. In this series, Pastor Merritt answers these three questions.
Think back to all the things you put on your Christmas list over all the past few years all the things that you wanted.Pastor Merritt is going to give you his Christmas list and he guarantees you it is going to surprise you, but after this series is over you might agree with him that this ought to be on everyone’s Christmas list.In fact, if every person on this planet made this their Christmas list and God gave them what they asked for our world would never be the same.
The story of Moses is not just what God did for him; it is what God wants to do for you. It is not just about what God did in him, but what he wants to do in you. It is not just about what God did through him; it is what God wants to do through you. The story of Moses is not just “a” story and it is not just “his” story. God wants it to be your story too.
It is amazing how much God’s word has to say about our feelings and how we can control our feelings rather than have our feelings control us. When your feelings are controlling you and they rachet up to earthquake level, it is almost impossible not to let other people know it. Learning how to handle our emotions is crucial, not just our emotional health, but our physical health. Fortunately, God's Word has a lot to say about knowing and mastering our emotions.
See, we all know what to do at Christmas, because for the most part whether you believe in the story or not, whether you are a follower of Jesus or not, whether you go to church or not, we pretty much do all the same thing at Christmas. I am convinced though we have it down pat on what we do at Christmas, most of us don’t really do what we should do with Christmas.
If you really trust God, you don’t necessarily have to tell people with your lips; you will show them with your life. I am going to talk to all of us about trusting God. Why we ought to trust God completely and continuously.We can all trust God equally and when we do, God will do exactly the exact same thing for all of us. When we trust God it gives Him pleasure and He gives us treasure.
