Reconstruct – Getting Unstuck

Pastor Lis Burns

September 18, 2022

  • Where did it all go wrong?
  • Are you stuck?
  • When did you get stuck?
  • How do you get un-stuck?
  • What is my faith in?
  • Is my faith in God’s character or His hand?
  • Pain is not a sign that God isn’t real, it’s the chance for God to show you just how real He is
  • Pain was PROMISED

John 16:33 NIV // “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

  • We weren’t promised a PAIN-FREE life, but a grace-filled life!
  • Faith is REQUIRED

Hebrews 11:6 NIV // And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

  • If we only believed because life is always good, that’s not faith, that’s sight

2 Corinthians 5:7 // “For we live by faith, not by sight.”

  • God’s character is that He’s SOVEREIGN and He’s GOOD

Romans 8:28 NIV // “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”

  • Do you believe God is FOR you?

Isaiah 55:9 NIV // “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

  • I don’t always have to UNDERSTAND God, but I always have to TRUST God.
