Getting Ready for Sunday, August 17th

August 17th Sermon “The Power of One Promise”

Today, it’s rare for us to trust many people in our lives to keep their promises.  There are few that stand out in our minds.  However, there is one who always keeps His promises.  When God makes a promise, He keeps it.  You can count on it in days ahead.  God’s word is full of promises that God has made for us in this life and beyond.  In the life of Nehemiah, there was one promise that was made as well that he was able to draw strength from to move forward.  In this message, discover that God keeps His word to us. (Nehemiah 1:8 & 9).

     It’s such a great thing to be reminded of some of the many promises that God has given to us through His word.  The most exciting thing is that God ALWAYS keeps His promises.  I think this will be a great time of celebration as we lift our voices to our God who is always faithful to do what He says.

     We begin with a traditional hymn (with a little Oasis flair of course) “Standing On the Promises”. This song is a reminder that we can truly stake everything we have on the promises that God has made.  I have attached a link to the lyrics in the chart above.  Take time to read through the lyrics and incorporate them into your own personal time of worship.

     The next three songs; “Forever”, “Everlasting God”, and “You Never Let Go” continue our theme of celebrating the promises of God.  God tells us that He will never leave us.  He will never let us go, and nothing can pull us from His hand.  We’re reminded that when we are weak that God is the Everlasting God that can give us strength when we put our trust in Him.  Take time to listen to these songs by clicking the links in the chart above.

    Our final song of the day as we dismiss the services is “Salvation Is Here” which once again states our belief in God’s promises.  I know my God saved the day and I know His word never fails.  I know my God made a way for me  I love this song, because of the words “I Know”.  There is no doubt about it, God keeps His promises. 

    Thanks for taking time to check out what will be happening this week at Oasis.  Take time this week to think about the many promises that God has given us all.  Let’s come together Sunday ready to celebrate our faithful God.  I look forward to worshipping with you Sunday.
