For we walk by faith, not by sight: II Corinthians 5:7 (quickview) 


Father I come to you this holiday weekend and I just want to praise your name and the awesome power that it has. Father you have blessed us abundantly and your mercies flow like a river deep.

As we gather here this evening in your house of worship, it is my desire that you will open our hearts and minds to your Word.

May we learn to Walk in Faith and Not by Sight, pour out your Holy Spirit upon us this evening and may the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight O Lord.

For I ask these things believing in your Word and the power of your name, the name that is above all names, my savior and coming king, The Lord Jesus Christ.



After God called me to the ministry, he began to teach us to walk by faith.

God needed to show me how he could work in my life.

God Answers Prayer in a Mighty Way When We Allow Him to Work in Our Lives.

4. When we allow the Holy Spirit to Teach Us.

The move from the Kerr ranch to Oklahoma City.

1. God needs to remove pride.

Proverbs 16:18 (quickview) 

I will go anywhere you want me to God, but not to Oklahoma City.

You cannot serve God on your conditions. Pride can destroy you.

It defeats all that God wants to do in your life.

2. God needs to be in control of your life.

We must learn to realize that we are children of God and that God loves his children. He cannot bless us if we do not yield to him. You cannot let the flesh rule your life. My emotions controlled my life.

Colossians 3:1-10 (quickview) 

3. God need for you to trust in him.

But it is good for me to draw near to God:

Psalms 73:28 (quickview) 

Matthew 7:7-8 (quickview) 

God can provide all of our needs.

•Our first home.

•Our clothing.

•Our jobs.

4. When we allow the Holy Spirit to Teach Us.

God taught us through great teachers, while we were in OKC.

I Corinthians 2:10-16 (quickview) 

We need to learn to listen to the Word of God!
