Psalms 23:1-3 | Its Part 2 of the message “Rest” from Psalm 23. Last week Crawford Loritts shared the first two things we’re to rest from as found in this passage. We’re to rest from the burden of sin and from the responsibilities of life. Today, the remaining ones; rest from worry and rest from disappointment and discouragement.
Psalm 23:1-3 | God made us with the need for rest. Sabbath was given prior to the fall of mankind. We need to be able to operate from wholeness. What do we think we’re really trying to accomplish by driving hard all the time? God rested. He modeled that for us. He calls us to rest so that we respond to Him and are not held hostage to reacting to life.
Philippians 4:4-9 | Some people believe that we are controlled by our emotions. The apostle Paul here in Philippians says that is not true. He says our will determines our emotions. In Part 2 of “Choose Joy in Our Outlook on Life,” Crawford Loritts highlights three life-changing attitudes that will frame the joy we choose to have.
