  • Moving Into Harms Way - With God's Blessing Series

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Jul 14, 2005

    Jacob and his family move to Egypt, knowing that they will face hardship. Yet God also promised to go with them and bring them. He makes the same promise to us if we will go the place of worship, peace, and refreshment.

    Has God ever instructed you to go into a place where you knew eventually there would be suffering? I’m not sure that’s happened to any of us - and I am even less sure that knowing that fact would help us in any way. But in doing so we fulfill God’s plan not only for us but for His purposes on ...read more

    based on 13 ratings
     | 1,837 views

    Laban confronts Jacob after God tells him to leave and go to Canaan. We learn how God peels away the flesh and transforms us with His character through the confrontation between Laban and Jacob.

    I don’t like confrontation - especially with people who I know have ulterior motives and are trying to trip me up and get the best of me. I get obsessed about it - and it makes my stomach churn. I’m sure Jacob was feeling some of those feelings as he thought about Laban - who at every turn ...read more

    When we look into the future, we can be filled with faith or fear. We can choose to be a blessing or dread tomorrow. Your choice.

    January 6, 2002 Hebrews 11:20-22 “A faith-filled future” INTRODUCTION Of all the topics that I could bring up to welcome you into a new year, probably the worst would be to talk about new year’s resolutions. But that is exactly what we are going to do today. Oh, it won’t be ...read more

    PENTECOST 6, YEAR A - Jacob Wrestles With God. One of my most enjoyable sermons. Talks about how God can use us even when we have little faith and we come from a disfunctional family system.

    "Now he arose that same night and took his two wives and his two maids and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. And he took them and sent them across the stream. And he sent across whatever he had. Then Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. And ...read more

    What’s going on when the saints sin?

    When I put my faith in Jesus Christ decisively at the age of 21, God spoke a sentence into my consciousness that I will never forget: “You’re forgiven. Go and sin no more.” From the moment that lightning bolt realization struck, I’ve never doubted God’s complete forgiveness. That simple ...read more
