AUGUST 12, 2018 CLASSIC WORSHIP | 8:45 & 10:00 A.M. PREACHING CHAPEL | 11:15 A.M.

LOOK UP

JUDGES 6:11-16 REV. CHARLIE WILFONG How brave are you? We make these choices from an early age. How to approach playground equipment. Learning new skills. Building friendships. Choosing a job, vocation, or profession. Managing investments. Many people base important decisions on the risk-reward ratio. Others use “intuition.” What do you do when it’s God’s call? When God asks you to do something, how brave are you? Once you’re sure that God is leading you on a path, do you move ahead with courage? There comes a point when those who walk with God are well served to stop looking around at the T-charts and looking within to assess their intuition and decide to look up for God’s direction.
