A New Beginning

Christian talk radio with Greg Laurie

July 31, 2022

In the midst of feeling down, we need to look up. Caving to hardship can lead to weakened faith, like David experienced. Listen in as Pastor Greg Laurie reminds us to keep our eyes on God, no matter what.  Notes King David is described as “the man after God’s own heart. ” But King Saul could be described as “the man after man’s own heart. ” “Indeed, I have played the fool and erred exceedingly. ” —1 Samuel 26: 21 Fear replaced courage in the heart of David.  E. A. R. =False Evidence Appearing Real The very people who are out to get us are often the ones who are afraid of us, because we are a threat to them and their power. Though people abandon us, God never will! “If God is for us, who can be against us? ” —Romans 8: 31 David went to the wrong place for solace. Sin makes you stupid! I cry out to the LORD; I plead for the LORD's mercy.  I pour out my complaints before him and tell him all my troubles. When I am overwhelmed, you alone know the way I should turn. Wherever I go, my enemies have set traps for me. I look for someone to come and help me, but no one gives me a passing thought! No one will help me; no one cares a bit what happens to me. We need to look up and put our focus on God, not our problems. It is okay to complain in your prayers. Do not' cry out against God; cry out to God. When the Israelites criticized and turned against Moses, he cried unto the Lord. When John the Baptist was beheaded, the disciples went and told Jesus. When the bottom drops out, cast your cares on God! God is mindful of you and your interests. If it is a concern for you, it is also a concern for Him. Casting our cares is something we need to do daily, and sometimes even hourly. When your burdens and worries pile up, cast them on God!  Come to Jesus with your burdens today! Scripture Referenced Psalm 142: 1-4 Exodus 15: 25 Matthew 14: 12 1 Peter 5: 6
