2022 THEME: For Such a Time. . .
Series: Against the Grain
Scripture: Daniel 4
“Pride is the only disease known to man that makes everyone sick except the person who has it.”
Nothing is ever (wasted). No (plan or word of God’s) is ever wasted. God is not a God of (random acts). He is not a God of random, (disconnected) lessons.
I. GOD GETS HIS ATTENTION
How it goes down:
1. The Vision: (bliss). (10-12)
2. The Interpretation: an (upheaval). (13-17)
II. GOD HAS A PURPOSE
1. God exposes our (sin) and calls us to (holiness). “Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished.” Pr.16:5
2. God exposes our (pride and arrogance) and calls us to (humility). “And the pride of humanity will be humbled, and the arrogance of people will be brought low; and the Lord alone will be exalted on that day.” Is.2:17
3. God exposes our (weakness) to show us His (power). See James 4:6,10 and Psalm 121:1-2
