The Confidence of our Faith (Isaiah 41:9-17)Pastor Jared Shumate, March 10, 2019
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Sunday Evening, March 10th, 2019 - The Confidence of our Faith - Pastor Jared Shumate
From where do you draw your strength? Where do you find your confidence? Does your confidence from from your faith? Or do you have idols in your life that give you comfort and strength? Believe it or not, many Christians are still placing idols above their confidence in God.
We're not talking about statues that we worship or offer sacrifices to. We're talking about the idols of job, wealth, materials, status, position, relationships, etc.
Are you getting your confidence from something other than God tonight? Cast your idols aside and find confidence in Him today!

9Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. 10Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. 11Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. 12Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. 13For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. 14Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. 15Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff. 16Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel. 17When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. (KJV)
