God is EVERYWHERE

The BIGness of God.

By: Caleb Wheatley

How often do we take some time to stop, think, ponder or chew on the bigness of God. How often do we stop, think or ponder on the fact that he is almighty. It is often a line we throw out there without much weight. But the truth and the sheer size of the thought is so much more amazing than we can even imagine. The Omnipotence of God truly is “something to think about”

Key Texts:  Psalms 34:1, 51:6, 89:8-13, 145Matthew 19:26, Hebrews 11:3, Job 38:4-7, 42:2, Isaiah 14:26-27, 40:28, 43:13, 

 


Certain in uncertain times

By: Caleb Wheatley

Same Same - But Superior

By Caleb Wheatley.   The lead-up to Christmas (commonly called Advent) is typically a time to reflect about the promises of God.
