SERMON: July 31st, 2016 “The Perfect Storm”
Today Pastor Dave spoke from Matthew 7:24-28 of the Wise and the Foolish Builders and why the Lord sends storms into our lives. We are to prepare for storms by resting on the Rock that cannot be moved! There are 6 reasons for why the Lord sends storms to us: first one is that sometimes storms just happen; the second is to correct us; the third is to mature us and sometimes specifically unforgiveness can bring self-imposed storms in our lives; the forth is to humble us and often when we try to please everyone we realize that we don’t please anyone and the only One we should be pleasing to is God; the fifth is to see Him more clearly, specifically to have a “Peter Moment” when as Peter began to sink, Jesus takes him by the hand and they walk back to the boat together (Matthew 14:22-33); and the final reason is God sends storms to prepare us for something greater for us to do for Him.
