Chestnut Ridge Church
Stuck - Part 4
There will come a time where each of us will experience what it's like to be "stuck" spiritually. Maybe we don't feel as close to God as we used to, or maybe we feel we aren't growing in our faith. What if we could get a jump start?...a bit of help to get moving again? The Stuck series will explore five of the main catalystsGod uses to grow our faith,no matter the season in which we find ourselves.

Stuck - Part 4 [January 28, 2018] Tim Haring

Problem: We don't realize how God uses our circumstances to grow us up spiritually

Solution: Nothing's wasted






Catalysts:

Week 1 in this series: Practical teaching
Week 2 in this series: Providential relationships
Week 3 in this series: Private disciplines
This week: Pivotal circumstances
“Life is full of surprises—some good, some not so good. Each unexpected event that comes our way is actually a divine opportunity to know God more. When we are able to find God in the midst of life’s pivotal circumstances, our faith is strengthened.”
– Andy Stanley
Consider what God may be doing in you through what’s
happening to you
The word for “destroy” appears [elsewhere in the Bible in] …Psalm 80:13 about wild boars that destroy or “ravage” a vineyard. Saul’s zeal was so great against Christians that it was as if he were wildly raging against them.[1]
– Toussaint, S. D.
