Move with God
This Sunday, I begin a message series on the mission and vision of Palm Coast Bible Church. The following is a small portion of my message for this week.
God is with us always. Where we have been. Where we are. Where we are going. He is with us all the time and at any moment in time. John 1:1 says, “In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Those of us who grew up with the church take for granted the most important part of the creation story. God existed before the genesis, before the beginning, before anything else. God spoke, and by His very breath, creation erupted. Before our first moments as humanity, God was already around. Look at Revelation 1:8. “I am the Alpha and the Omega – the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come – the Almighty One.” God is always previous. God is I Am. God always will be.
Moving with God starts with our view that we are always in the presence of God. No matter where we go or how the situations of our life direct our path, God is always within reach. Although the sin of our life so easily trips us up and causes us to stumble, God is right there to grab our hand and put us on our feet, again. Even if we are on a path that leads to heartache, pain, and disappointment, God is ready to give us a course correction so we might have a change of destination. God is not far from any one of us, and the invitation to move with Him is always available.
