Sovereign Over Us

There is strength within the sorrow,

there is beauty in our tears

and You meet us in our mourning

with a love that casts out fear

 

You are working in our waiting,

sanctifying us

When beyond our understanding

You're teaching us to trust

 

Your plans are still to prosper,

You've not forgotten us

You're with us in the fire and the flood,

faithful forever, perfect in love

You are sov'reign over us

 

You are wisdom unimagined,

who could understand Your ways

Reigning high above the heavens,

reaching down in endless grace

 

You're the lifter of the lowly,

compassionate and kind

You surround and You uphold me,

and Your promises are my delight

 

Your plans are still to prosper,

You've not forgotten us

You're with us in the fire and the flood,

faithful forever, perfect in love

You are sov'reign over us

 

Even what the enemy means for evil,

You turn it for our good

You turn it for our good,

and for Your glory

Even in the valley You are faithful,

You're working for our good

You're working for our good

And for Your glory

 

Your plans are still to prosper,

You've not forgotten us

You're with us in the fire and the flood,

faithful forever, perfect in love

You are sov'reign over us

Worshipping God by Confessing Our Faith

Romans 8:28-39

 

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. 

 

For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 

 

And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.  

 

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 

 

He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 

 

Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies.  Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died-- more than that, who was raised-- who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.  

 

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?  As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”  

 

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

He Will Hold Me Fast

When I fear my faith will fail, 

Christ will hold me fast

When the tempter would prevail, 

He will hold me fast

I could never keep my hold 

through life's fearful path

For my love is often cold, 

He must hold me fast.        


He will hold me fast

He will hold me fast

For my Savior loves me so

He will hold me fast


Those He saves are His delight, 

Christ will hold me fast

Precious in His holy sight, 

He will hold me fast

He'll not let my soul be lost, 

His promises shall last

Bought by Him at such a cost, 

He will hold me fast.

 

He will hold me fast

He will hold me fast

For my Savior loves me so

He will hold me fast


For my life He bled and died, 

Christ will hold me fast

Justice has been satisfied, 

He will hold me fast

Raised with Him to endless life, 

He will hold me fast

Till our faith is turned to sight, 

When He comes at last.

 

He will hold me fast

He will hold me fast

For my Savior loves me so

He will hold me fast

Worshiping God by Hearing His Word

Matthew 7:7-11 (ESV)

 

                                                  Series:    Pray.

                                                  Sermon:   Expectantly

 

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.  Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent?  If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

 

God calls us to ____________ ____________.

 

 

Our expectation isn’t grounded in the ____________ of our prayer; it is found in ____________ ____________ ____________.

 

 

The reason we can pray expectantly is because God is a ____________, ____________, and ____________ ____________.

 

 

This means that many of our “____________” prayers are actually ____________ ____________ to our prayers.

 

 

Action point: take time each day, especially before you pray, to ____________ yourself of God’s ____________ love, wisdom, and generosity.

 

 

Let’s grow in ____________ ____________ knowing that God in his loving wisdom ____________ ____________ our prayers in his own time and in his own way.

Worshiping God by Singing

God Moves in a Mysterious Way

God moves in a mysterious way

His wonders to perform;

He plants His footsteps in the sea

and rides upon the storm.

 

You fearful saints, fresh courage take:

the clouds you so much dread

Are big with mercy, and shall break

in blessings on your head.

 

O, bless the Lord with heart and soul,

let all within me sing

And trust the wisdom of my God,

my Father, Lord, my King.

 

With deepest wisdom, highest love,

and never failing skill

He masterminds His bright designs

and works His sovereign will.

 

His purposes will ripen fast,

unfolding every hour;

The bud may have a bitter taste,

but sweet will be the flower.

 

O, bless the Lord with heart and soul,

let all within me sing

And trust the purpose of my God,

my Father, Lord, my King.

 

Blind unbelief is sure to err

and scan His work in vain;

God is His own interpreter,

and He will make it plain.

 

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,

but trust Him for His grace;

Behind a frowning providence

He hides a smiling face.

 

O, bless the Lord with heart and soul,

let all within me sing

And trust the goodness of my God,

my Father, Lord, my King.
