Today’s Sermon:

 

 

What Does It Takes to See God Move?

Psalm 143:1-12

By Dr. Bill Henard

 

 

If you need to see God move . . .

 

  1. Be Thirsty for God. 143:6 I am like parched land before you

 

  1. Be Trusting of God. 143:8 for I trust in You

 

  1. Be Obedient to God. 143:10 Teach me to do Your will

 

What could be the one life-changing event that could happen to you?

When you examine the character of Christ, how does it demand obedience from you?
