Recognizing God's Handiwork - Psalm 33

The work God does is creative. He made heaven, earth, and all living creatures. He formed Adam and Eve in His image and knitted each of us in our mother's womb. His work is also powerful. Through His Son Jesus, He accomplished a great salvation for all who trust in the Savior. Our heavenly Father worked mightily to open a way for us to be reconciled to Him and adopted into His family. Not only that, but God's work is ongoing, and Jesus is the One who holds all things together (Colossians 1:17).


In order to recognize God's handiwork, we need to pray in an active, persistent manner. Christ-centered prayers narrow our focus to the Lord. Then we can more readily identify His actions and see how to join Him. Self-centered petitions serve to distract us from Him.


The Father also wants our heart and mind yielded to His will. Pursuing our own agenda shifts the focus to ourselves and makes us lose sight of the Lord. But a submissive attitude prepares us to listen and obey. Regularly concentrating on God's Word will clear our minds and help us understand what the Lord is doing.


When we combine these disciplines with discernment and patience, we will have positioned ourselves to discover how God is working in our lives and in our world.


Our Lord is at work today - calling nonbelievers to saving faith and the redeemed to a closer walk with Him. His plans include individuals, families, and nations. Have you been too busy or distracted to notice what He's doing? Confess your inattention and refocus your heart and mind on Him.



Upcoming Sermon Series
      Temptation is the seductive little voice that twists what you want into what you need. It distorts your thoughts until you're trapped - and when you're trapped by temptation, it's not the time to listen to yourself. Learn to put your trust in someone who knows A Way Out. God always gives us a way out. We won’t try to manage temptation, but eliminate it. We will attack temptation from a positive perspective by focusing on living by the Spirit. This series will start April 8, 2018.


Last Week:
      I Corinthians 15:25 tells us that He must reign. We saw the Opening of the reign of Christ, the Presence of the reign of Christ, the extent of the reign of Christ, and the Necessity of the reign of Christ. Write this over every closed door in your life.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.


Next Week:
      Join us as we start a new series, A Way Out, by looking at how there's Always A Way Out.
