Our Future Is in God’s Hands | Sunday Message

5/19/2024
“...But you heard my cry for mercy and answered my call for help” (Psalm 31:22). How often has that been true for you, too? Psalm 31 puts the overwhelming goodness of God on display, reminding us of who He is in hardship we face. Get more insight into this psalm now with Pastor Greg Laurie. Notes: Today's Scripture: Psalm 31 God determines the length of your life. God was preparing David to be a king, the greatest of Israel’s kings. The most important thing about this king is, he would be in the Messianic line. Acts 13:22 Overall, David did everything God wanted him to do, not flawlessly but faithfully. “I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, for You have considered my trouble and You have known my soul in adversities.” Psalm 31:7 Sometimes the ones you help the most hurt you the worst. Sometimes fellow believers will criticize you when God begins to bless you. People are going to hurt you in life, and you will hurt people as well. “God allows us to feel the frailty of human love so we’ll appreciate the strength of His.” —C.S. Lewis Forgiveness doesn’t mean condoning bad behavior or dismissing it. To forgive means, “surrendering the right to get even.” When you face tragedy, when you face hardship, the church is there for you. When people are hurting, they just need someone to be with them. Harvest Groups God is in control of our lives, and He determines how long we will live. Psalm 31:14–15 God has a beautiful future for you. Jeremiah 29:11 Get your eyes off your problems and put them on God! Psalm 31:23–24 Put your hope in God. Psalm 119:114; Romans 15:4 “If you look at the world, you’ll be distressed. If you look within, you’ll be depressed. If you look at God, you’ll be at rest.” —Corrie ten Boom “Wait on the Lord. Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord.” Psalm 27:14 As Christians, we are indestructible until God is done with us. You decide in this life where you will spend the afterlife.

God's Solution to Man's Problem | Controlling Your Thoughts

5/17/2024
Mankind has had some great ideas: air travel, space flight, the wheel, the smartphone. But everyday, each of us has some very bad ideas. God calls them sin. But, good or bad, it starts with an idea. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us keep our ideas in check. We’re launching a new series from “the book of beginnings,” the book of Genesis. We’ll see dangerous ideas can be traced all the way back to the Garden of Eden. Harvest Crusade 2024 --- Listen on harvest.org --- Learn more and subscribe to Harvest updates at harvest.org .

Trouble in Paradise | Victory Through Christ

5/16/2024
How does the Devil cause so much mayhem among believers? He has help! He and his minions set their sights on believers trying to make them fall . . . and they’re quite good at what they do. But today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out victory is assured for God’s children when we stand in the victory of Jesus. We’re in the Garden of Eden today watching Adam and Eve struggle against the temptation of our adversary, and we’ll see how that struggle affects us even today.

Trouble in Paradise | How to Fight Temptation

5/15/2024
In the Lord’s Prayer, we read “Lead us not into temptation.” Yeah, we certainly don’t want to go down that path. But haven’t you found that sometimes temptation comes up the path and finds us! Temptation is pervasive. It’s ubiquitous. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us dissect temptation. We’ll trace its roots all the way back to the Garden of Eden. And Pastor Greg offers some biblical insights on how to stop Satan’s attacks right in their tracks.

Trouble in Paradise | The Creation of Marriage

5/14/2024
Many products have labels noting where they were made. Maybe Made in China, Japan, Mexico, or Made in the U.S.A. Metaphorically, if we were to look at our label—the label of man himself—it would say “Made in the Garden of Eden . . . by God.” You and I were handcrafted by our Heavenly Father. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out, not only were man and woman handmade by God, the institution of marriage was, as well. Today we’ll get the full story.

God's Purpose for Us | Wonder or Wander? It's Your Choice.

5/13/2024
If you don’t know where you’re going, how do you know when you get there? It seems some people are in permanent wander mode. They’re drifting. But those who live for the Lord continually encounter the wonder of God. Wonder . . . or wander? The choice is up to us.

Don’t Be Afraid! | Sunday Message

5/12/2024
Psalm 27 offers us comforting words, “The Lord is my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid?” In today’s message, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us study this Psalm, revealing the power it holds. Find the biblical wisdom you need. Notes: People’s number one fear is glossophobia. We need to face our fears. Deal with your giants, because either you conquer them, or they will conquer you. “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1 Faith overcomes fear. When faith walks in, worry walks out; but when worry steps in, faith walks out. The Christian life is not a cakewalk; it’s a conflict—it’s not a playground; it’s a battleground. There will always be something to potentially worry about. When you are afraid in the dark, turn on the light. Psalm 27:1 Anxious notions come sweeping into our mind, uninvited and unwelcome. But the presence of our heavenly Father can dispel all fear, worry, and anxiety. Face your fears in God’s strength, not your own. Psalm 27:1 God is bigger than your enemies. Psalm 27:2–3 God promises to keep us safe in His protection. Psalm 27:5 God will never allow anything to touch us that He does not allow, and He certainly will never let anything happen that would separate us from His love for us. God either did it or allowed it for His glory and our ultimate good. Romans 8:38 David knew that the main thing was to keep the main thing the main thing! Psalm 27:4–5 A danger in life is to permit the urgent things to crowd out the important things. If we don’t focus on that one thing, we will end up doing everything, and accomplish nothing. Read: Psalm 27:8–10 You have a Father in Heaven who loves you and always has time for you. God promises to be a Father to the fatherless. Your heavenly Father will never abandon you. Psalm 27:9 Take courage and continue to follow the Lord. Psalm 27:13–14 Harvest Crusade 2024 --- Learn more about Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries at harvest.org.

God's Purpose for Us | Understanding God's Plan for Mankind

5/10/2024
God’s plan for creation and His plan for mankind, included His plan for man’s redemption. Even before the heavens and the earth were created, He knew man’s freewill would lead him astray. . . and He had a solution before we even tasted of the forbidden fruit. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie digs into God’s plan as revealed in Genesis. To understand something best, we need to take it from the top—chapter 1, verse 1 of book #1 in God’s Word.

Well, we can start to feel weak spiritually . . . but so many times our spiritual food ISN’T at the top of our minds.

The Refreshing Power of the Word of God | Sunday Message

5/5/2024
In today’s message, Pastor Greg Laurie shares that spiritual success or failure depends on how much of God’s Word you get into your life on a regular basis, and how obedient you are to it. Get insight now from Psalm 19. Notes Don’t build your life on fickle emotions; build your life on Christ and God’s Word. As we read, study, memorize, and obey Scripture, it refreshes us. The word convert means, “to revive, restore, and transform.” Success or failure in the Christian life depends on how much of God’s Word you get into your life on a regular basis, and how obedient you are to it. A growing believer will delight in and love the Word of God. Hungry Christians are healthy Christians. The Word of God is perfect. “His mercies are new every morning.” —Lamentations 3:23 How do you know the Bible is the Word of God? All the authors of the Bible write about one theme: God’s redemption of mankind. The Bible is true because it gives the experience it claims it will give you. The Bible is true because it is confirmed by science. It was the Bible that first said that the number of stars were innumerable. The objective of the Bible is not to tell us how the heavens go, but how to go to Heaven and how to know God. The Bible is true because it is the one book that dares to predict the future. The Word of God transforms us. It’s not enough to read and study God’s Word; we must do it! The Bible is God’s Word to us, and it should be treasured. The Word of God gives us incredible wisdom. The word simple comes from a root word that speaks of an open door. What if you don’t agree with what the Bible says? Answer: Change your opinion because you are wrong, and the Bible is right. The Word of God is right. Keeping the Word of God makes you happy. “Happy are those that hear the Word of God and keep it.” —Luke 11:28 You can have a happy life without sin. The Bible tells us how to get to Heaven. Harvest Crusade 2024 --- Learn more about Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries at harvest.org.
