Facing Your Next Battle with a New Plan

In the conversation for Sunday, May 28, 2017, Pastor Stuart Nice invites us to consider engaging our current and future struggles with a posture of trust God through resting in God’s presence. 

Facing Your Next Battle with a New Plan

“Cease striving and know that I am God."
Psalm 46:10 (NASB)

Sacred Reading

A note about the recording of the Sacred Reading:
The reader will pause between each of the four readings. The pauses have been left in the recording so that the listener can experience the rhythm of the gathering and even participate in the reading.

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. So you should not be like cowering, fearful slaves. You should behave instead like God's very own children, adopted into his family—calling him,"Father, dear Father." For his Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts and tells us that we are God's children. And since we are his children, we will share his treasures--for everything God gives to his Son, Christ,  is now ours, too. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering. Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will give us later.
Romans 8:14-18 (TLB)
