In Matthew 4 satan said to Jesus if You are the Son of God then turn this stone into bread.  Jesus could have done what satan was saying to do but just because you can do something it doesn’t mean that you should do something.  Often we think that we should do everything within our power to meet our needs but there are times when we need to be still and listen for the Lord to give us divine direction to meet our need.  Jesus said in verse 4 “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”  There is a proceeding word that is always proceeding from the Throne Room of Heaven and we must listen for Him to speak rather than coming up with what we can do.  We can be guilty of trying everything that we know to do and then after we have exhausted all our resources, listen for God to speak.  We could save ourselves years of self effort if we would take moments in the midst of our needs to listen for His present voice, a now word that will lead us and guide us into all truth.     
This Sunday is Mother’s Day and what a great day it will be.  Give honor to your mother for this is good in the sight of the Lord.  I’ll be sharing a special word to the Mom’s and there will be a baby dedication.  On Mother’s Day there will only be the morning service.  Make sure that you try in some way to show honor to your Mom. 
Continue to pray for all those in need.  Lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice

Praise our Lord Jesus for He is good.  Some people wonder what God is like and can He really help us when we have a problem.  Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”  When we are in trouble He comes to strengthen us right while we are in the trouble and also He gives us or makes for us a refuge, a safe place right in the midst of the troubled place.  We often want to escape trouble and God can do that but He can also create a safe place for you to be at peace even while you walk through trouble.  He’s a very present help today and at the end of the day we will rejoice and give Him all the glory for His presence goes with us.  Amen?
This is Family Sunday, the presence of the Lord has been so wonderful to us.  We start at 10:15 with breakfast followed by the morning service.  I’ll be sharing on, ‘Animal Behavior In Saints.’  If you know anyone who acts like an animal when afraid then this message from the Holy Spirit will help them to see the light.  We all become afraid at times but we all don’t react to fear correctly.  Let the word of the Lord help you to change your ways and be blessed.  There will be a Building Fund offering and we end with Communion.  There is no evening service on Family Sunday.  
Continue to pray for all those in need.  Lots of love, looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, Pastor Kevin and Alice
