LOOKING FOR FATHER
This Weekend – One of the most dramatic stories that I have ever read or shared is one by journalist John Fountain. If you have a lack in your relationship with an earthly father, this story will either bless you or perhaps overpower you. You won’t know until you listen to it. One person told me that the story “stayed” with him for days. He thought about it over and over. Let it speak to you

THE GOD WITH A PLAN
#18 – Air Date Week of 1/22/2018
Standing Alone in Covenant
Jeremiah 37:1-3, 15-17
This Week – This is the fourth message in a series within a series from Jeremiah. Standing alone in any situation can be difficult. Being a believer and follower of the Lord God Almighty has always involved times of standing alone. That’s true today in 2018! Being a believer has never been “in” or the thing to do. Jeremiah stood alone for the Lord in his day; we may be called to do the same!
Monday (1/22) – We explain what it means to stand alone for the Lord. You may have to stand alone in your own family, in your job or school, or in your circle of influence. Standing alone means saying “yes” when everyone else says “no”. Or more often than not, it means saying “no” when everyone else says “yes”. If it hasn’t happened lately, it will soon enough!
Tuesday (1/23) – One of the ironies of life is demonstrated by the leaders of God’s people not paying any attention at all to Jeremiah and his warnings. Yet when disaster hits, those same people come to Jeremiah and say, “Please pray for us!” We have seen that in our country right after 9/11 2001. For one week people who never or rarely attended worship services showed up on that Sunday to pray! Sound familiar in your life or mine?
Wednesday (1/24) – We share a famous story of “standing alone” in our country. You may remember an African-American little girl by the name of Ruby Bridges in New Orleans who had to be escorted into a public school by four U.S. Marshals. She was alone, but in a very real sense, she wasn’t. So it is with us. We may be alone, but not really because of the presence of the Lord!
Thursday (1/25) – God’s people were dismissive of the Lord’s warnings to them. Be careful when you “dismiss” the word of God with the wave or a hand or heart. We all do it. We talk about the funeral of a person where I asked for the person’s Bible. I wanted to see what they had marked or written in it. It’s a powerful story that just may speak to you about your life and mine.
Friday (1/26) – We close with a very powerful story about the prayer of minister who was profoundly deaf. He gave this prayer to his congregation just three weeks before being killed in an automobile accident. What he said will touch your heart; you may want to pray his prayer yourself! If you do and mean it, your life will never be the same!
