Message: The Secret To Our Strength
October 19, 2014 | Dr. David Swanson | Nehemiah 8:1-12
We’ve all seen people who have gone through extraordinarily difficult circumstances with amazing strength, to the point that it makes us wonder how they did it. The good news this morning is that God’s Word gives us the secret to that strength, one that grows in us as we grasp more deeply the incredible redemptive work of God in our lives.
Why is it that we tend to stray from God when things are going well in our lives?
What is it that makes us draw closer to God when times are hard?
- Why is it difficult for us to acknowledge how much we need God’s grace? In your own words, describe the difference between joy and happiness. Can you be joyful when your circumstances are tough? How?
