When life is a pressure cooker for years on end, it’s easy to believe that God simply does not care. But we must remind ourselves of the promise of God that He will never leave us nor forsake us. When we’re in a tight place, it’s the promises of God that can get us through the darkness.

Israel faced great trials under the heel of the Pharaoh of Egypt. The people were brutally oppressed as slaves. The lessons they learned might help us face the stress of a modern era. In this message we learn about “Finding God in a Tight Place.”

If life were always easy, we’d never learn the lessons that come through trials. The desert gave Moses that opportunity. Many of us might be in the desert, learning lessons for a future day when we’ll understand their value.

When tough times come, it’s easy to lose heart. Moses grew up in Egypt, while the people of Israel were under bondage to Pharaoh. He had to learn some hard lessons, and in this message we’ll discover how he learned to trust God despite his circumstances.

What do you do when life is hard and options are few? In this message, Dr. Lutzer takes us to the Old Testament story of a man who had it all, and then lost it all. Through his life we learn about “Finding God in Your Desert.”

There’s a heavy focus on praise in many of our churches, and praising God is always in order.  But the Bible tells us that God expects our praises to be accompanied by the sacrifices of sharing: sharing our time, talent and treasure. Both praising and sharing are crucial in the life of the believer.

What principles undergird the worship experience in your church? The book of Hebrews gives us a basis for how we should conduct corporate worship. God’s word provides the instruction that can set all of our churches on solid ground.

The true worship of God involves personal sacrifice. We give of our time, our talents, and our treasure. And the Bible says all of this is “acceptable to God.”  We need to learn how to live in a way that worships God continually.

Worship is not first about what we sing or say. It involves what we bring to God. Worship always involves sacrifice. This means we should take a close look at what the sacrifices of worship are all about.  
February 23, 2018
When things are going well, many of us feel no real need for God. But when troubles come, and our prayers are difficult, we come face to face with God. He wants us to find our refuge in Him, not in those around us.
