Authority: Who is on the throne?
1 Kings 18

We are living in a day when everyone is doing what is right in their own eyes. It is a day where authority is not only questioned but held in contempt. Yet, God has established authority as a blessing. God establishes parents as an authority over their children, government over nations, and, ultimately, it is God who has authority over all. How should we view authority and recognize it in our own lives? Join us this Sunday as we look at Authority: Who is on the throne?

1. Who’s on the throne? God is speaking, do you hear Him calling you? Is the Lord your God?
2. Is there something you need to confess? Is there something God is calling you to do? Someone to forgive? As the people saw the mighty hand of God, they shouted in unison, The Lord, He is God, the Lord He is God. Can you say that today with sincerity? Can you declare Him to be your authority? How about we declare that together today?

Come to Him, declare His authority over your life. Thank Him for His loving lordship, His gracious leading in your life.
