What do you do when you are faced with difficulties? What is your first response when you face moments of distress and things seems to be out of your control?
Do you forget about all of the times God has brought you out, made a way out of no way, and worked things out for your good?
Rev. Samuels reminds us to "Encourage Ourselves in The Lord" even in times of distress. Sanctify ourselves, seek God, and he will ensure we recover everything we thought was lost during difficult times.
Have you ever wondered why things are the way they are? Have you ever wondered why things go the way they do? Have you ever wondered why there are questions you just can't get the answer to?
Despite the complexity of some of these questions, we know that God is in complete control of everything going around us.
Listen in, as Rev. Hines helps us understand just who the unknown God really is.
We face some real challenges in this world. Daily struggles with issues that appear to come from no where. From family issues, job concerns, the ever present social challenges have all taken a toll.
Have you been trying to fight this battle, and navigate the uncertain waters on your own? Are you standing your ground in The Lord?
Well! Rev. Lampkin came to remind us that the battle is not ours, but it is The Lord's!
Reflecting on those precious memories growing up, and how God took care of our ancestors through every trial, every tribulation, and every hardship. The same God who took care of them and provided right on time, will provide for us. Don't you know that, He (The Lord) is an on time God?!
Tune in as Rev. Kevin Hines reminds us that He (The Lord) is an on time God.
We all make plans, and sometimes things don't go the way we think they should go. We've done a lot to ensure our lives are well built like the boats referenced in both Jonah and Mark. However, there are things that can come along in life that can ruin those plans.
Tune as Rev. Donovan Price talks about how those plans can still make it through the ruin when Jesus is on the boat.
We try to remember important moments and events in our lives. From, birthday's to wedding anniversaries, to personal information like social security numbers.
Jesus left two ordinances for the church: Baptism and The Lord's Supper. Hence, we come together to "keep in memory" the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by honoring the body of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; remembering and or recalling what Jesus did on Calvary's cross.
How important is it to remember just why Jesus died on the cross? Very important! Remember, Jesus did it just for you and me!
Tune in as Rev. Hines helps us understand the importance of keeping in memory the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Do you feel like giving up? Times are hard, and we all seem to be going through trails causing us to contemplate giving up. The pandemic, social unrest, governmental issues, and violence in our communities has the pressure mounting.
Rev. Lampkin wants us to understand, we can't give up - it's only a test! Tune in as Rev. Lampkin encourages us with the word of God.
There is a lot going on in the world right now, and sometimes it feels like we can't find God. Is He with us? Is He working this out on our behalf? If we are honest, we have all asked these questions at some point during our life's journey.
Rev. Samuels preaches a sermon of encouragement letting us know that "God is With Us." Not only is He (The Lord) with us, it will be because of his protection that we are not consumed by the troubles of the day.
Tune in as Rev. Samuels shares a word from Isaiah 43:1-2.
The question we are facing in this moment is simple... How do we handle tragic experiences in our lives? If they haven't come, they will. And if you're in it, how do you handle it? To compound the issue, in the midst of everything going on around us; we have lost our joy.
Also, just liked Nehemiah faced when he was trying to do a good work, there will be some who will criticize every move you make - they will even try and stop you from moving forward. Just like Nehemiah, can you still complete the work in the midst of complainers and opposition?
Where do you get your strength? Does it come from The Lord? Listen in as Rev. Kevin Hines tells us exactly where we get our strength from!
Did you know that you are covered? Trust and believe it is a great feeling to know, when an unfortunate situation arises that you are covered. In the midst of everything going on in our neighborhoods, city, state, and even our nation it is good to know that we are covered and kept by God.
It has been time for the church to collectively pray for the restoration of God's people. It's time for the church to pray for God to cover us, because when we are covered, healing will take place, revival will take place, deliverance will take place, and the land will be healed.
Take some time and listen to Rev. Hines assure us that we are covered!
Encourage Yourself in The Lord
