Fully Reliant on God
As we look around at what has been going on in our country and world over the past couple years, it's easy to find someone to blame and then demand that something be DONE about the problem. The pandemic caused many to instantly fuss about our elected officials at both the federal and state levels. People were glued to their TVs and computers to hear the latest numbers as a judgment against the officials. The crushing war in Ukraine makes us wonder what should be done. And tragic shootings have led to press conferences that push for new laws. Whatever the situation, human beings have a desperate desire to regain control once it's lost, to blame some person or policy for every issue, and to give at least the appearance that we have a "plan". But what if I told you that God will put you in some circumstances where no plan of yours can rescue you? Would you still say "we have to do something"? This week at Friendship, we'll consider what it's like when our only hope is to be "Fully Reliant on God". We'll talk about the story of King Jehoshaphat, who resolved to seek the Lord and wait on Him even when it seemed like it was up to him to decide what to do. Don't miss this important message as we will continue to face uncertainty in this world!
