This past weekend at Lakes we talked Redemption. 🙂
Ever have those time when things were going really well and yet for (seemingly) no reason at all something stops that? Perhaps you’re on track to be star quarterback, and you hurt your arm. Maybe you think your job is going well and you’re laid off. Just those times – that seem great, but God intervenes and turns things around. Why is that?
Pastor Josh used the analogy that when your child gets the basketball and is so excited that he runs in the wrong direction. He thinks he’s doing great, he even makes a basket. But all the while you’re yelling – turn around! Because you know that even though it was a magnificent shot, he ultimately was going the wrong way. God’s intervention in our lives is similar. He sees us running towards the wrong basket and even though it’s going really well, he needs to turn us around before we score the wrong point.
“Gods intervention will ultimately lead to my redemption” – Pastor Josh
Trust God to bless you in HIS purpose. (Acts 2:42-47 NIV)
Trust God even when it’s painful. (Acts 2:6 NIV)
Pastor Josh brought a great message that reminded us that God is in control and when we let Him lead us, we can trust that it will never be in the wrong direction.
Join us next Sunday (5/26) as we talk Baby Steps, Baby Dedications, and Water Baptisms!
