Something Greater Nov 29, 2020 - What are you afraid of? Fears attack the most precious parts of our life and keep us from living the life meant for us. God wants to help us overcome our darkest fears as we learn to Fear Not. In This Series A Sun Valley ChristmasDec 24, 2020 | Chad Moore Many of us are afraid of what God might ask us to do. We think His plans will make us miserable and we are afraid to trust Him. The truth is His interruptions are really invitations to something greater. His ways are always better than ours. His purpose might be different than our plans, His purpose may seem impossible, but all things are possible with God and it is in fulfilling His purposes that we find peace. We are responsible for obedience and God is responsible for the outcome. Interrupting OutcastsDec 20, 2020 | Chad Moore Many of us do not obey God because we do not understand what we mean to him. We feel unworthy, inadequate or unloved. Jesus came to the Shepherds first. If anyone in this day and time had feelings of unworthiness or inadequacy it would have been the Shepherds. Yet all through Jesus’ ministry he chose the least likely to accomplish the most extraordinary. Pray and obey! Interrupting the EngagedDec 13, 2020 | Robert Watson We care what people think. Someone who says they don’t care is lying to him or herself and that person probably cares the most! The challenge is that pleasing God often means disappointing people. Becoming obsessed with what people think about you is the quickest way to forget what God thinks about you and the quickest way to be free of what people think of you and to remember what God thinks of you. If you’re not ready to be criticized for obey God, then you’re not ready to be used by God. Extraordinary acts of God often begin with ordinary acts of obedience. Interrupting DisappointmentDec 06, 2020 | Chad Moore We get used to disappointment. We get comfortable with it. We can become so familiar with disappointment that we become unfamiliar and blind to what God is doing all around us. We stop praying, we stop hoping, we stop believing and forget who God is and what He can do. Sometimes God awakens the dream that we never thought would come to pass and brings it to fruition. InterruptionsNov 29, 2020 | Chad Moore When angels speak to people they almost always begin with “fear not” or “do not be afraid." This is the most common command in the Bible. In fact, it’s in the Scriptures over 365 times. There’s a “fear not” for everyday of the year. Fear paralyzes and keeps us from fulfilling God’s purpose for our lives. When Jesus was born there were several people who had to face their fears and obey God and God used them to change the world. They were afraid and obeyed anyway. You never know what you might set into motion with a simple act of obedience.
