Getting Ready for Sunday, September 14th


September 14th Sermon “When God Says Slow”

There are occasions when we pray that God will say slow. That is he lets us know that he is going to answer our prayer, but it is just not going to be right now. There are times when God is bringing things together at just the right time and in the right way for his will to be done. In today’s message, we will talk about what we should do while we wait on the Lord.

     I hope you enjoyed our time of worship yesterday.  This week we continue our series “Simple Answers” with a message entitled “When God Says Slow”.  So often we want our prayers answered when we want them, and the way we want them.  The thing I have to constantly remind myself is that God can see the big picture, and I can only see a small piece at a time.  I need to be patient and wait on His timing.  Do you ever struggle with that?

     Our music today allows us to worship God for who He is, and to pledge our trust in Him.  We begin with “You Are Holy” which is one of my favorites.   I love it when the guys sing the chorus, and the ladies sing about the many things that God is to us.  You are Lord of Lords, You are King of Kings, You are mighty God Lord of everything….”  I must admit it’s hard to stay on the piano bench when we get going with this song.  My feet want to dance despite their lack of grace and rhythm.  Check out a video of this song by clicking the link in the chart above.

     We move on to “Sometimes By Step” which I usually refer to as “Step By Step” which thoroughly confuses everyone on the worship team (sorry team)  We will just be singing the chorus of this song, but there are also verses if you would like to check them out in the video link above.  This song is a statement of faith, and our goal to seek God every day to learn and walk in His ways rather than our own.

     “Trust and Obey” continues our theme of obedience.  Though at times we want things to happen on our own time, God has greater plans and knowledge than we do.  We need to trust, and obey whatever it is that He tells us to do….sometimes that is to simply wait.  I’ve linked to the lyrics of this song in the chart above.  Take time to read through the text, and incorporate it into your own personal quiet time.

    We finish up the music portion of the service with “Everlasting God”.  This song continues our theme of obedience with the statement “we will wait upon the Lord”.  This serves as yet another reminder that sometimes we have to wait on God’s timing rather than our own.  Check out a video of the song by clicking the link in the chart above.

     Thanks for taking time to see what is going on this Sunday at Oasis.  For those of you who where at Community Group last night, we hope you really enjoyed it.  The rest of you I hope to see Wednesday night at 6:30p.m. 


Bro. Doug
