How to stay in God’s protective care
March 18, 2013
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
It’s been a little over 21 years since I picked up a phone to call the man who would become the worship pastor at our church. I remember our first conversation. I told him, “Todd, you don’t know me, but I’m about to stir up your life. I want you to come be our worship pastor.”
What Todd said next was such a confirmation that he was the man for the job. “Jack,” he told me, “whatever happens, I just want to do the will of God.” Todd’s words that day inspired me. He prayed about it, and God confirmed in his heart that becoming our worship pastor was the right step for him. But what I loved is that he put his own desires aside and appealed first to God’s will.
Bobby Richardson, the famed New York Yankee once prayed at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes banquet, “Lord, Thy will anywhere, anytime, any cost.” And as believers in Jesus Christ, that’s the decision we can make because it’s the path that will work out for our good and His glory.
God’s will is perfect. So before we follow our own impulses, let’s appeal first to God. When we do, we can go forward with full confidence that we’re on His side and safe in His protective care!
FIND GOD’S WILL IN YOUR DECISIONS SO YOU CAN HAVE FULL CONFIDENCE YOU’LL BE UNDER HIS PROTECTIVE CARE!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
