I hope your week has been going well. Below are the sermon notes for this week. We took a detour from out series on the lost to examine our relationship with ourself. Our hearts can’t be loving towards other if we are not able to show love to ourselves. Please look before for more.
- There is no prescription to soften your heart to the lost; however, God has a way of softening our hearts.
- To begin let’s write out Psalm 139:1-6.
- We’re all broken. We all make mistakes. We all fall short of the glory of God on a daily basis.
- Re-read Psalm 139:1-6.
- Look at verse one. Here is says “you’ve searched me” meaning God’s seen your darkness, your quirkiness, and your goodness. This also means that He knows all the information about you. There’s nothing you can hide from him. Even though He knows all your mess and brokenness He still wants to be with you. If hearing that right now doesn’t make your heart full you are saying God isn’t enough.
- Please look at verse 2. Discern means to stop and contemplate what you really think before you think it. God wants to know what’s really going on.
- Look at verse 3. God knows you by your outward expressions and inward thoughts. What God can do through your weakness is absolutely amazing. If God never takes that away you’re still okay because He wants to be with you.
- Please look at verse 4. God knows you by your unexpressed thoughts and He is still okay with you.
- Look at verse 5. He’s behind you, in front of you, on top of you. Anything that happens in your life God has to allow. Whether something happens that is your fault or not, God allows it, and His grace is enough to cover it. Nothing happens to you that God doesn’t allow.
- We finished by re-writing Psalm 139:1-6 and really thinking about how these things apply to us.
