Most of our lives are dominated by living an Earning & Deserving life. This creates enormous complications in our relationships because we wind up thinking only about ourselves. Jesus came to show us a better way of living. Believing & Blessing.
Have you ever felt like giving up because life is just too hard? Perhaps you feel cornered and the pain is so real you have absolutely no idea how to escape? Feeling internally paralyzed is not bad or something to feel ashamed of. It may feel like there is no reprieve coming anytime soon but, God is with you and God doesn’t just save you… He fixes you. He will make you whole. It will get better.
Life is made up of seasons. Some seasons are harder than others and it can feel like God is absent. We may not understand why but, we need to let go of our feelings, what we understand to be real, and trust God. He hasn’t left and He isn’t going anywhere.
Romans 8:1 says, "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." This only works if you let go because, you are accepted, you are righteous, and you are loved. You can stop condemning yourself now. Yeah... Jesus is that good.
Have you ever thought or said "God is good but?" In this message, Judah talks about the one thing. We all have one thing. One thing that keeps us from seeing how good God is. One thing we secretly hold on to and protect because it's not that bad. It's the one thing we need to let go of and if we believed that God is good we would be able to.
The concept of letting go and releasing control to God sounds good, but it can be difficult when you know you’re right, or when you know someone is manipulating you, or you know someone hurt you. In the next installment of the “Let Go” series Judah discusses letting go of control, even when you don’t want to.
When life feels like it is spinning out of control our instinct is to hold on tighter but Jesus tells us to do the opposite. Let go. When we do this we will discover God in a way we have never seen or experienced.
The seasons of life are inevitable - some are better than others but all seasons are temporary. How do you handle the in between times? If you've ever needed help understanding the process, this message is for you.
When you hear the word weakness what do you think of? Do the words “It’s a blessing,” come to mind? In this sermon Judah discusses how we should relate to our weaknesses and ultimately how they bring us closer to God.
Are you emotionally or physically exhausted? Is every day a wrestling match you are just trying to survive? In this sermon, Judah talks about how this is not the way we are supposed to live. We can let go and simply receive and rest in the goodness of God.
