EVENING WORSHIP at NCPC Selma for August 19, 2018: “Behold Your God: Part 3,He is Inexhaustible,” (19:05)

Sermon text: Isaiah 40:27-31

A.    Why do you doubt Him?, V. 27
B.    Don’t you know who He is?, V. 28
C.    Don’t you know what He does?, V. 29
D.    Don’t you know the truth about mere mortals?, V. 30
E.    Live by faith in Him!, V. 31

“The flight of the eagle … is a gift, and displays in its every lift
and turn the greatness and glory of its Giver. The question is: is
such flight possible for you and me? And the brilliant answer that
Isaiah gives is: yes, it is! The only requirement is that we ‘hope in
the Lord’, believing that his promises are true and that he can and
will do for us what we cannot do for ourselves.”        –Barry G. Webb
