An Encouraging Word from your Pastor

March 2021 Blog

Can you believe March is already here?!  We’ve been off to a crazy start in 2021, with multiple snowstorms, a Presidential Inauguration, and continuing to work through the Covid-19 pandemic.  Yet, through it all God is moving in amazing ways!!  Every week the staff and I sit down together and start our weekly meeting time with praises and stories from the week before.  And each week this share time goes at least 20 minutes, sharing stories of ALL that the Lord is doing through you and in the life of our church!!  Life change leads to God opportunities if we stop and recognize them.  I love what Mark Batterson says in his book “Win the Day,” “Without Goliath, you don’t discover David.”  David became known as the man after God’s own heart. He was a man who is considered one of the greatest kings and leaders of all time.  Yet, that is not the way he was seen by his family growing up.  When Samuel showed up at his father’s house to pick the one who was to be anointed to be the next King of Israel, his own father did not even think to bring David up from the fields to be introduced to Samuel.  David was the youngest son, most likely the smallest, and he was left in the field to take care of the sheep.  The Lord then says to Samuel “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him.  The Lord does not look at the things people look at.  People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks in the heart.”  God sees what man could never see, the heart!  Man didn’t see David’s potential and his ability until he ended up facing Goliath, but God did! 

Stay faithful with the today and then let God show off tomorrow.  God showed off through David by putting a giant in front of him and David did not back down or run in fear.  He simply had faith!  In I Samuel 17:25, David says to Goliath, “You come against me with a sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, who you have defied.”  When you are faced with the giants in life remember to stand firm in your faith and allow God to be used through you!  And remember, without Goliath, you don’t discover David!  I hope that encourages you today!!! 

Can I just say about our Church, WOW!!!  We have had the strongest start of any season of our church through seeing many show up each week, lives being changed, many getting connected, people being baptized and people being faithful in their giving.  Together We are a reaching, disciplining and sending church impacting generations for Christ! 

The last Together We Journey Big Give Sunday is this SUNDAY!!!  Together We are praying for $350,000 to finish this journey of building the Together We Center and updating our worship center.  If you have not yet jumped in to be a part of this journey with us, you can do so by giving in the room on March 7th or online at journey.trinitychurchok.com.  Let’s finish strong Church, on this incredible God-given opportunity to make a huge impact in our community.
