God’s Providence

A thought on Pastor Bobby’s sermon last weekend on the providence of God.
I heard before that a Christian should not complain about how tough his/her life is.
A Christian who wants to complain to God should first make a comparison between his/her life with Apostle Paul’s life.
Apostle Paul suffered many things (2 Cor 11:23-27):
– was flogged severely.
– was exposed to death times and again
– five times receiving 39 lashes
– was beaten 3 times with rod
– was stoned once
– was shipwrecked three times.
– was in constant danger everywhere he went
– toiled and labored without sleep
– was hungry, thirsty, cold and naked

Yet, in all these things, God preserved him and made him more than a conqueror.

My situation now is tough, really tough.
It is not as tough as his, though. So, I should not complain at all.
Nevertheless, if God can preserve him, God can (and will) preserve me.
In Christ, I am more than a conqueror too!

Pastor Bobby’s and Pastor Aries’ Sermon 16, February, 2013

Pastor Bobby’s Sermon: Providence

Providence: God actively preserves the existence of His creation, guiding and directing the course of events for them to fulfill their purpose.
Psalm 121:4-8
The preservation of God makes us stay alive. Nothing happens by chance.
John 10:27-29.
No one is able to snatch us out of God’s hand.
Rm 8:35, 38-39.
None of the difficult events nor invisible power can separate us from God. We are still in the hand of Almighty God
Rm 8:31.
We can’t lose with God on our side.
1 Cor 10:13.
God preserves us by providing us the way of escape.
Apostle Paul suffered a lot yet he survived because God preserved him.
Our God still works miracles until now.
God has begun a good work in me and He will complete it (Phil 1:6).

God has preserved CHC and no one is able to snatch CHC out of Father’s hands.
God who has begun a good work in CHC will finish it too. 

Pastor Aries’ Sermon: Expectation and Preparation

Psalm 5:3
Expectation precedes miracle.
Preparation sets the precedence for the miracle.
Heb 11:7.
Noah moved with godly fear when he prepared an ark. Godly fear is divine wisdom.
Wisdom of the Lord is in hearing His Word and obey Him.
Proverb 21:31.
The deliverance still comes from the Lord. Still, we need to go to the battle.
Wisdom of the Lord is in the voice of prayer too.
Ex 2:23-25.
It is a voice of prayer. Never underestimate the power of prayer.
Ps 50:15.
In the day of trouble, don’t get to crisis mode. Let’s get into Christ-mode.
