WHEN GOD'S NOT THERE
Ever feel like God just isn't there?
What do we do when we feel like we're disconnected? In this sermon, Pastor Shannon gives us a clear plan to fire us back up for our PURPOSE in life!
How do we make resolutions that stick? We first must realize what, or WHO, we are making the resolutions for.
Jesus IS the resolution!

when god's not there
There is no resolution
He IS the resolution
isaiah 40:29, 40:31, 43:2 and keep reading…God is preparing them
1 john 1:9
Philippians 4:19, 4:6-7
To that faith of miracles which the apostles and first preachers of the gospel were endued with, which did wonders in things natural, healing the sick, raising the dead, casting out devils; these were, in effect, the removing of mountains. The apostles speak of a faith which would do that, and yet might be found where holy love was not, 1 Co. 13:2 . [2.] It may be applied to that miracle of faith, which all true Christians are endued with, which doeth wonders in things spiritual. It justifies us (Rom. 5:1 ), and so removes the mountains of guilt, and casts them into the depths of the sea, never to rise up in judgment against us, Mic. 7:19 . It purifies the heart (Acts. 15:9 ), and so removes mountains of corruption, and makes them plains before the grace of God, Zec. 4:7 . It is by faith that the world is conquered, Satan’s fiery darts are quenched, a soul is crucified with Christ, and yet lives; by faith we set the Lord always before us, and see him that is invisible, and have him present to our minds; and this is effectual to remove mountains, for at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, the mountains were not only moved, but re moved
His all this possible? Satan had his hands so all over the earth!
from the beginning, adam and eve disobeyed….cain killed abel
abraham couldn’t wait on God’s promise so he took matters into his own hands…..
sodom and gamorah…..and Lot’s wife
fast forward to judas….even a guy walking WITH jesus!
How are all these promises and power of God possible? How did the war and conflict going on and Satans grips on humanity come to an end?
BECAUSE IT WAS RESOLVED
That’s what a resolution is. It’s solving your problem. It’s resolving issues.
It’s forgiveness, where there was none. It’s freedom where there were chains. It’s a release where there was a grip!
When God isn’t there, none of that is possible.
When God isn’t there, there is no resolve. He’s the great resolution. ….There is no peace. He’s the prince of peace
when God’s not there, there’s nothing in charge….chaos is king. He’s the king of kings….
When God’s not there, you just float along with no start and no finish…why??? bc He’s the beginning and the end
When God’s not there, there is NO freedom….why??…bc who the son sets free is free indeed!
ending with IT IS FINISHED
Believe More + Worry Less = No Stress
