THE LORD’S PRAYER
ANTHEM “‘God, We Spend a Lifetime Growing”-
SCRIPTURE AND SERMON Rev. Steve
The God Centered Life: God Is For You-Psalm 118:5-9, 18
Three areas in your life that you can count on God:
1) You Can Count on God in Times of Trouble
From my distress I called upon the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me in a large place. The Lord is for me; I will not fear; what can man do to me?
2) You Can Count on God When You Can Count on No One Else
The Lord is for me among those who help me; it is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.
3) You Can Count on God To Correct You
The Lord has disciplined me severely, but He has not given me over to death.
