Lies bring brokenness, truth brings freedom. There may be a number of reasons why we lie but God is clear, he detest lying lips and delights in those who tell the truth. Although lying may seem like the easier thing to do, one lie has the potential of leading us down a cycle of lies. With this in mind, let's be quick to confess and quick to forgive all the lies.

At some point in life, we will ponder and ask ourselves, "Why was I created? Why am I here? What is my purpose?" Questions like these that speak to our reason for existence have need of an answer in order for us to live in the fullness of life. One HARMFUL thought that tends to follow is: "I need to find it". However, the creature will not find what the Creator does not reveal. In this lesson, we'll explore how God orchestrates our lives and positions us for purpose.
When God Doesn't Make Sense
Cynthia Rauser • Sermon • • 42 views
There are times when we pray and it doesn't seem like God is listening. We hear stories where things work out for others. Often times people who are not faithful are blessed while others who are faithful do not receive a simular blessing. We may be wondering, "Why do we pray?" Just because God is silent doesn't meant God is absent. You don't have to understand the plan to trust God's purpose. God's purpose will be fulled but it may not come the way we would plan in our own heart. We cannot interpret God's goodness through our circumstances. We interpret our circumstances through the goodness of God.
