When God says “Go!”

September 17th, 2009 Posted in encouragement, essentials, OC, Pastor's corner, sermons

This Sunday at Harvest in Riverside I am speaking on the topic of prayer. This is the final part of our three-part message called “Secrets of Spiritual Growth,” which is part of our larger series Essentials.

We will explore the second half of The Lord’s Prayer. We looked at the first half last Sunday.

One thing we saw together in our last message was how important God’s will and timing is.

One person put it this way:

If the request is wrong, God says, “No.”
If the timing is wrong, God says, “Slow.”
If you are wrong,  God says, “Grow.”
But if the request is right, the timing is right, and you are right, God says, “Go!”

So how can we see God say “Go” and “Yes” more often? Are there secrets to answered prayer?

I believe the answer to that is yes, and we will discover them tonight in Scripture.

I am speaking in NYC!

Dont forget, I am speaking in New York City this coming Saturday for a spiritual growth conference. For more information on that, click here.

    Hi Pastor Greg!

    Thanks for sharing, I love that everytime you talk about prayer, you state the different answers our Lord can give us: Yes, No, Wait.

    Though sometimes it’s hard for us to understand when we get a Wait as a response, we need to remember that our timing is different from the Lord’s and that He ALWAYS arrives on time, He’s never late, and never early, but just in time =)

    Thanks again!

    God Bless,
