Tug of War

Life is difficult. Each day we face two different worlds: an outside world & and an inside world. Each world vying for our attention and focus.

Check out this week’s message titled Tug of War, where Pastor Larry breaks down how the outside world affects and influences our life.

Watch the full message below the message notes.

Message Notes

The Battle of mental health 

Hardest thing I’ve ever done is to follow Christ.  

IT’S NOT...  
  • Receiving Christ 
  • Obedient in Baptism
  • Tithing
  • Serving
  • Going to Church

WHY IS THAT?? 
Because there is an Outside World & an Inside World

1 John 2:15-17 NKJV
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Outside World 
  • Friends
  • Family
  • You’re Married
  • Or Single
  • Work
  • World Events
  • Financial
  • School
  • News Media
  • Sickness
  • Social
  • Political
  • Career
  • Pandemics
  • Being a mom or a dad or even being a Student and the stress that the world puts on you

All of these things add stress!!

We need to remember that stress doesn’t come from the facts, but rather from the meaning we give to the facts!

1Peter 5:7
Cast ALL your cares

John 14:1
Let NOT your heart be troubled

John 16:33
I have told you these things, so that you might have peace. In this WORLD you will have trouble, But take heart, I have overcome this WORLD!  

Recently my family was very sick for quite sometime.
  • During that time was the hardest mental health struggle in my entire life! Not Physical!!
  • My physical body was done, but my spirit man was alive. 
  • I felt the Spirit say let's Praise Him!
    • YOU are Jehovah Jireh- God will provide
    • YOU are Jehovah Rapha- God that Heals
