Sometimes it is really hard to believe the promises of God. What happens when we fail to live according to them and choose to go our own ways...again and again? Genesis 13 teaches us what it looks like to live by faith and not by sight by returning to the God, who makes the promises, again and again.
Back to the Beginning
Genesis 13: 1-18

Waiting for the Promise
Genesis 23 • April 25, 2020 • Tim Cain
At this point most of us probably find ourselves longing for things to go back to normal. We feel like strangers in our own world and we miss the way things used to be. Abraham and Sarah were very familiar with these feelings. For over 60 years they wandered together as strangers and foreigners waiting for God to give them the land he had promised. Today we are going to talk about the temptations they faced as they waited and see what it was that enabled them to trust God while feeling like a stranger in the world. I believe that the things we can learn in this passage could be really helpful for all of us as we learn how to navigate these strange times.
Obeying God in the Midst of Unanswered Questions
Genesis 22 • April 18, 2020 • Tim Cain
Living without answers to our most agonizing questions is hard; obeying God in the midst of these questions is even harder, but that is precisely what Abraham does in Genesis 22. In this passage, we will see what it is that we need to know in order to be able to obey God even when we don’t understand what he is doing or why he is doing it. For those of you who feel paralyzed by the unanswered “Why’s” in your life this message is meant to redirect your heart from the answers you long for to the person who holds them all in his hands. It is my prayer that we would all see that knowing the one who has the answers is far better than knowing the answers themselves.
Receiving the Promises of God
Genesis 21 • April 4, 2020 • Wes Van Fleet
This current season with COVID-19 has stripped away a lot of things we depend on. Will we respond in clinging to new ways to try to earn God's approval or will we learn to receive His promises by faith in Jesus. Listen and hear how the Gospel from Genesis 21 can teach us to receive his promises with joy.
