(A better title for this week's message would be: "Have Faith in God".)
Many of you know that my family and I are facing a mountain of difficulties right now: being "homeless" in the aftermath of the tree that fell on our house for six weeks and counting; having serious back issues and then surgery; and dealing with several other issues. It's easy to be overwhelmed when we come up against such a mountain of discouragement, deception or despair. The shadow of this mountain tends to block our light of hope and peace. Instead of having faith in God, we try to work out man-made solutions. In the process, we lose sense of who we are in Christ and the authority we have as His. We might become hopeless or "religious", both of which lead to our undoing. In this week's message, we find our way back to the source for the victory and peace that is rightfully ours.
