Covenant Makes a Way
July 18, 2011 By Pastor Jacque Babb
Grace and mercy are such a beautiful and powerful proposition. Together they make a place for us to reach our greatest potential. Failure is not an option when you live in a culture of grace and mercy. Either one of them is amazing but together they bring peace of mind in any situation. There is no room for condemnation.
-the free unmerited love and favor of God, the spring and source of all the benefits men receive from him.
-The exercise of love, kindness, mercy, favor; disposition to benefit or serve another; favor bestowed or privilege conferred.
In the Old Testament grace had to be "found" or "granted".
Ex. 33:13 Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people."
God Goes Ahead of You
July 11, 2011 By J.V. - A Teacher
Deuteronomy 31:8 “The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
Have you ever felt God calling you somewhere or to something, but you just can’t wrap your mind around how it will ever work? It seems so hard to take that step of faith?
This was me a couple of years ago, I didn’t know how God would come through in my life and it seemed that all the odds were stacked up against me. I was in a major crossroad in my life both personally and spiritually. I knew that I was called to Tyrone so I applied for teaching positions in the area. Every door closed. Every interview went sour and here I was in the summer of 2009, knowing I was called to Tyrone, but no means of income to support myself to live there. If you know me, the way I operate is strictly by numbers (Go figure I am a math teacher).
