When Life Goes Bad, Go To The Good Of God

Passage: Matthew 14:1-13

Speaker: Drew Shofner

Series: Turning Points

Category: Hope, Doubt

Keywords: distance from god, turning points, 10-2-16 message, soak in the goodness of god

When life goes bad, we each get to choose how we are going to manage the turning point decisions in our lives. We can go to the good offered by God or the so called good offered by the world. Soaking in the presence of God is the example set by Jesus. We see again and again Jesus spending alone time in prayer when he was managing the turning point events in his life. When we follow Jesus’s example and soak in God’s presence, everything changes for us and for those around us. The problem is distance. Distance from God during the good and bad times of our lives. We get to choose daily. We can choose the world or we can choose to defeat the distance going to the good each day offered by God.

 

Join Pastor Drew for our 15 Day Challenge. He's asking our community to spend 15 minutes a day reading God's Word and to pray for 15 minutes a day. Each day of the challenge, he'll be offering encouraging words and resources on Facebook Live. We pray this is a true Turning Point in your life.
