God leads his people out of Egypt and to the edge of the Red Sea. Their enemies are closing in, and it appears that there is no way out. On Sunday we talked about how to respond when it feels like life is crashing in.

One lesson from the story of the Red Sea is that: Tough Times are an Opportunity to Trust the One Who Brought You There.

Three questions to ask when problems are closing in and it looks like there is now way out.




Three questions to ask when problems are closing in and it looks like there is now way out.


This Sunday, we’re going to look at the story of the Israelites being stuck between the Red Sea and the oncoming Egyptian army.  Below are three questions to help build faith when problems are closing in and it appears that there is no way out.


1)    Has God been with me up to this point?  Yes.  God delivered them from Egypt and led them via a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.  Exodus 13:22 lets us know that a cloud and a pillar didn’t leave its place in front of the people. 

2)    As far as I can tell, am I where I’m supposed to be?  Yes.  God led them to the edge of the Red Sea and told them to camp at that exact location where the problems came at them. (Exodus 141).  They were in the place God wanted them to be. 

3)    Has God helped me in the past with this same sort of problem?  Yes.  God had already worked powerfully to deliver them from these same Egyptians that are once again trying to make their life miserable.  If God delivered them before, He can do it again.


If the answer to the above questions are “Yes”, then it’s time to trust God and not freak out.


Join us Sunday as we learn more about trusting God when problem’s are closing in and it looks like there is no way out.

Giving Update

 

We are now five months into 2016 and it’s time for a giving update.  Each week your giving allows us to do ministry and share God’s word.  We appreciate everyone who gives faithfully at New Life.  You make a difference!  

While we have many generous givers, our giving for April fell short $1,147.55 of our budget.  Let’s pray that giving would increase and that we finish the year strong.

Communion takes place in the groups monthly, usually on the third week of the month. So if you’re not plugged in to a life group, get involved. You can find out more about groups by checking out the life group webpage here.
