Hebrews 11:6 "And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him." Sunday’s sermon Dare to Trust spoke to the core principles of this scripture. The first key to trusting God is actually believing that He exists and that He is the creator and sustainer of all things. Secondly, we must believe that if we seek Him, i.e. read our Bibles, apply what we read to our lives, and diligently spend time praying and seeking God, that He will reward that effort. What areas of your life do you need to begin seeking and trusting God for this week?

Hebrews 10:39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls. Hunting with a bow and arrow requires certain steps in order to ensure a successful hunt. The hunter must take into account certain variables that he can control to raise his chances of being successful in harvesting an animal. In our walk with God there are certain variables that we have control over that determines God’s ability to protect and bless us. Sunday’s message entitled Variables included four variables that we as believers have control over. Below is the list of variables that Pastor Terry covered, as well as the scriptures provided for each one.
Variable #1: Time - Hebrews 10:25 and James 4:8
Variable #2: Senses - Hebrews 10:26
Variable #3: Finances - Malachi 3:8-12
Variable #4: Thoughts and Motives - Hebrews 10:35, James 4:1-3, 2 Corinthians 10:4-6

Pastor Case shared a message called My Vision Focus: My Heart. In John 7:17 it speaks about willing to do the will of God. At a basic level, it is amazing to think about the God of the universe actually caring enough about us to have a will for each one of us. That should be enough to cause us to stop, wait on Him and to build our plans for a new year around Him and His will. Matthew 6:19-21 tells us that if we sow into something, our heart will go there. If we don’t have a fire for God we can stir that fire by “investing” in God, and when we do our hearts are turned toward Him. That would be our greatest vision for the new year.
