Job 42:1-6 God’s Sovereignty If we are a believer, than we should know that God is all-powerful, and in control. In other words, God is Sovereign. This character quality of God and His sovereignty can be seen throughout Scripture.

Fear of God A repeated theme throughout the entire Bible is the fear of God. Is it especially prevalent in the book of Deuteronomy as God’s covenant is renewed with His people.

Luke 18:9-14 Prayer is activity that reveals our heart. What we pray for and about says a lot about our hopes, desires, and worship.

Remember… Last week in the sermon, a thought was mentioned that has had me pondering all week. Simple enough, it was if you are not remembering Jesus than you are remembering something else (2 Timothy 2). Throughout Scripture, God repeatedly calls his people to remember. One prominent instance of this call to remember is in the book of Deuteronomy where the law is…

1 Samuel 1-2 The book of First Samuel opens with a story of God’s faithfulness, providence, and sovereignty even when from our human perspective it seems as if we are drowning in our suffering and difficulties. The story begins with a man and his two wives. One of his wives bore him many children, but God had closed the womb of his other wife, Hannah, The wife with many…
