Sermon Note

Pastor Lawrence

God’s heart is to bless, heal and provide. He said do not need be afraid. God is delighted fo give to you. Let hope arise

Today is a great day for a miracle

Luke 1:7

But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well advanced in years.

Luke 1:11-16

Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing on the right side of the altar of incense. And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.

But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John. And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth. For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb. And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God.

God hears your prayers.

Whatever you are believing Him for, the Lord hears.

God has heard you and your breakthroughs, miracles and provision is coming your way

He was serving the Lord when the angels appeared to him

Good things always happen to those who honour the Lord to serve Him

Joy and gladness

You are never too old to be used by God

God always care for you

Isaiah 46:4

Even to your old age, I am He,

And even to gray hairs I will carry you!

I have made, and I will bear;

Even I will carry, and will deliver you.

He is a good God. His heart is to bless you.

You are never too old to be used by God

Moses was 80 years old when God called him.

Let your perspective be changed.

You should not be defined by your years.

When you are waiting upon the Lord, something supernatural happen within you

You shall run and not be weary, you shall walk and not faint

Acts 2:17

‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,

That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;

Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,

Your young men shall see visions,

Your old men shall dream dreams.

New dreams in our hearts

Many people are facing challenging time in this season.

What do we do when we have lost everything and everyone is against us and we are in great distress?

1 Samuel 30:1-6

David’s Conflict with the Amalekites

Now it happened, when David and his men came to Ziklag, on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the South and Ziklag, attacked Ziklag and burned it with fire, and had taken captive the women and those who were there, from small to great; they did not kill anyone, but carried them away and went their way. So David and his men came to the city, and there it was, burned with fire; and their wives, their sons, and their daughters had been taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep. And David’s two wives, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the widow of Nabal the Carmelite, had been taken captive. Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.

At this point David had to escape from Kind Saul because he was jealous of David. He had to pretend madness.

David was wondering in the wilderness during this season.

David and his men came back to their homes and everything was burnt down and their wives and children were taken away.

David’s men wanted to stone him.

David was greatly distress.

What do you do in a time like this?

David was greatly distress.

David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.

What do you do when you have no more strength to carry on

When you turn to Him, God will become our strength.

David had to run away for his life away from the nation he loved.

David was very afraid to the point he had to prepare he was mad.

That was one of the lowest point in his life.

He wrote this Psalm during the lowest point of his life.

Psalms 34:1-9

The Happiness of Those Who Trust in God

A Psalm of David when he pretended madness before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed.

I will bless the LORD at all times;

His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

My soul shall make its boast in the LORD;

The humble shall hear of it and be glad.

Oh, magnify the LORD with me,

And let us exalt His name together.

I sought the LORD, and He heard me,

And delivered me from all my fears.

They looked to Him and were radiant,

And their faces were not ashamed.

This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him,

And saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him,

And delivers them.

Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good;

Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints!

There is no want to those who fear Him.

I will bless the Lord at all times.

His praise will be continually in my lips

He chose to worship the Lord. He chose to praise the Lord in spite of the negative he went through

John 10:10

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

David found his strength in the Lord

If there are fears in your heart today, seek the Lord

Our Father’s ears are attentive to His children’s cry

The word fear there is worship

Worship the Lord

All things will work together for the good to those who σνє Him!

When we worship the Lord something happen

By worshiping the Lord you are expressing your faith in Him

Instead of complaining and blaming, he chose to praise the Lord

David went by what the Lord led him to do.

God will release wisdom to you. When wisdom is released you receive guidance from the Lord

God provided for Issac in the year of famine

Let the Lord lead you. Seek Him. He will guide you every step of the way.

Know He is good. Taste and see that the Lord is good.

1 Samuel 30:17-20

Then David attacked them from twilight until the evening of the next day. Not a man of them escaped, except four hundred young men who rode on camels and fled. So David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away, and David rescued his two wives. And nothing of theirs was lacking, either small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything which they had taken from them; David recovered all. Then David took all the flocks and herds they had driven before those other livestock, and said, “This is David’s spoil.”

David not only recover all. He had spoil !

God will restore! Our God is a God of restoration!

Our God is a good God!

There will be a restoration

The thief is a devil. Our God is a good God

God wants you to know He is the Father of mercy

His heart is to forgive you

Our strength is something that God gives us. When we have Him we have strength

Hebrews 12:2-3

looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

The Discipline of God

(Prov. 3:11, 12)

For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.

Whenever you are weary and discouraged, consider Him, the Lord Jesus Christ

How great is His σνє

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us!

God has no sickness to give

2 Corinthians 5:19

that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

God is not counting our sins against us. He will deliver you.

Consider Him

Psalms 22:14-15

I am poured out like water,

And all My bones are out of joint;

My heart is like wax;

It has melted within Me.

My strength is dried up like a potsherd,

And My tongue clings to My jaws;

You have brought Me to the dust of death.

He literally became strengthless. He became weak because He took our place. So that we will not be weak again.

When you have grace, though we are weak, we can be strong in the Lord.

Jesus lost everything so that we can have everything.

Today we can have beauty and glory from the Lord

Testimony –

A 59 years old brother lost his job in 2019. He entered into 2020 without a job. In the beginning it was fine.

As he came into February, fear came into his heart. He was worried because of his age and the pandemic happened.

He started to listen to the gospel. He kept hearing Pastor sermon.

He applied for job and in March he received an offer.  In the season of confirmation, he managed to close a deal the others cannot close. He got a 30% increase of pay and confirmation.

Let your hope arise! Expect great things from God!

Our God is good God. He will provide for you.

There is a assurance of provision.

God is faithful to provide.

God will be faithful to you and prove Himself faithful to you.

God will meet you at the point of your need.
