FBCN Sermon Notes from service 3-29-2015

Unmasking your idols:

  • For whom and what do I make sacrifices?
  • If I could have anything or experience what would that be?
  • Who and what makes me the most happy?
  • What one person or thing can I not live without?
  • What do I think about when my mind is in neutral?

Words of affirmation and glory to God:

  • Hosanna!
  • Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!
  • Peace in Heaven!
  • Glory in the highest!


I am A Stander!


I am a stander.  I am standing in prayer for my children. I won’t give up, give in or give out before they are saved, fully following the Lord and home in Heaven.

I am a stander.   I refuse to listen to my children’s rebellious words or the discouragement of those around me.  I will speak the truth in love, discipline in firmness and pray in faith.

I am a stander. If God is for me, who can be against me?  I won’t look at outward circumstances or inward discouragement.  When hopelessness abounds, I will be steadfast in hope and more than a conqueror in Christ.

I am a stander.  I will not lower God’s standards but trust His Word.  I will not violate His covenant, approve what He hates, doubt His goodness or question His promises.

I am a stander.  I won’t quarrel, quit or acquiesce to my feelings or my fears.  I won’t dwell on my failures but count my blessings and see all of my successes as from the hand of the Heavenly Father.

I am a stander.  I have made my choice, set my face and will finish the race as a victor.  I am standing for my children, my home, my church and my nation on the Rock and in the Word

In Jesus Name,

By His Grace,

In His Strength,

For His Glory
