HOW DO WE LIVE IN TIMES LIKE THESE? - PART 1
Speaker: Pastor Kyle Mangum
Theme: How Do We Live In Times Like These?
Theme Verse: Isaiah 26:3
Thesis: Trust In The Lord Forever
Scripture Text: Isaiah 26:1-4
I. Our Salvation - v. 1-2
II. Our Rock - v. 3-4
THEME VERSE — ISAIAH 26:3
The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You.
Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
I will praise the Lord while I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
Do not trust in princes,
In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.
His spirit departs, he returns to the earth;
In that very day his thoughts perish.
How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
Whose hope is in the Lord his God,
Who made heaven and earth,
The sea and all that is in them;
Who keeps faith forever;
Who executes justice for the oppressed;
Who gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets the prisoners free.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind;
The Lord raises up those who are bowed down;
The Lord loves the righteous;
The Lord protects the strangers;
He supports the fatherless and the widow,
But He thwarts the way of the wicked.
The Lord will reign forever,
Your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the Lord!
SCRIPTURE TEXT - ISAIAH 26:1-4
In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
We have a strong city;
He sets up walls and ramparts for security.
Open the gates, that the righteous nation may enter,
The one that remains faithful.
The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You.
Trust in the Lord forever,
For in God the Lord, we have an everlasting Rock.
Looking ahead ...
NEXT WEEK’S SERMON: HOW DO WE LIVE IN TIMES LIKE THESE—PART 2 - PROVERBS 16:1-9
The plans of the heart belong to man,
But the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight,
But the Lord weighs the motives.
Commit your works to the Lord
And your plans will be established.
The Lord has made everything for its own purpose,
Even the wicked for the day of evil.
Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord;
Assuredly, he will not be unpunished.
By lovingkindness and truth iniquity is atoned for,
And by the fear of the Lord one keeps away from evil.
When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord,
He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
Better is a little with righteousness
Than great income with injustice.
The mind of man plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps.
