SUN STAND STILL

Series:Joshua
Duration:35 mins 20 secs

SUN STAND STILL
JOSHUA 10

“AND WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM, FOR HE WHO COMES TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THOSE WHO SEEK HIM.”
HEBREWS 11:6

“FAITH IS NOT A BLIND LEAP IN A DARK ROOM HOPING THERE IS A FLOOR. IT’S UNSEEN, BUT IT’S BASED UPON THE GOD WHO HAS REVEALED HIMSELF.”

WE MIGHT SAY, THERE ARE DIFFERENT SIZES OF FAITH PRAYERS;

   SMALL FAITH PRAYERS

   MEDIUM FAITH PRAYERS

   BIG FAITH PRAYERS

   SUN STAND STILL FAITH PRAYERS

“WE DON’T ALWAYS NEED A NEW TRUTH BUT WE NEED AN OLD TRUTH FRESHLY APPLIED.”


 PROVIDENCE, A DEMONSTRATION OF DIVINE CARE
Vv.1-7

   GOD CAN TURN OUR MISTAKES INTO VICTORIES …


 PROCESS, WHEN WE PRAY, WE MUST BE WILLING TO BE A PART OF THE ANSWER

    PROMISE, Vv.8

    PERSISTENCE, Vv.9-10

    POWER, Vv.11

    PRAYER, Vv.12-14

5 ELEMENTS OF A SUN STAND STILL PRAYER;

S-T-A-N-D

   SPECIFIC

   TIED TO GOD’S WORD

   ACTION REQUIRED

   NOT PRIVATE

   DARING

APPLICATION:

   THREE SUN STAND STILL PRAYERS FOR RCC;


“I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT FOR THE LONGEST TIME I AVOIDED BOLD PRAYERS AT ALL COST BECAUSE I WAS AFRAID HOW GOD MIGHT ANSWER THEM. I DIDN’T WANT TO PRAY FOR PATIENCE FOR FEAR THAT GOD WOULD ‘STICK’ ME WITH AN IRRITATING PERSON. I DIDN’T WANT TO PRAY FOR LOVE LEST I EXPERIENCE BETRAYAL. I DIDN’T WANT TO PRAY FOR SALVATION FOR SOMEONE BECAUSE GOD MAY ASK ME TO BE THE ONE TO SHARE WITH THEM, SAFE PRAYERS WERE A LOT EASIER. GOD DIDN’T HAVE TO WORK IN ME HE JUST HAD TO CHANGE SOMEONE ELSE. BUT JESUS DID NOT COME HERE TO MAKE OUR LIFE SAFE, EASY AND PREDICTABLE. HE INVITES US INTO A DYNAMIC ADVENTURE WITH HIM. AND NOW I PRAY MORE BOLDLY; ASKING THE LORD TO CHALLENGE ME, CHANGE ME AND USE ME. THERE IS NOTHING LIKE SEEING GOD ANSWER THOSE PRAYERS.
IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE FOR A CHURCH TO PRAY BOLDLY AND MEAN IT. IMAGINE A CHURCH ON ITS KNEES IMPLORING GOD TO USE THEM. IMAGINE A CHURCH THAT SAYS, WE DON’T WANT TO BE SAFE OR PREDICTABLE. WE COULD SEE THE POWER OF GOD AT WORK IN US.”

“WE COULD BE THAT CHURCH”
- TERRY SANDERSON

WE COULD BE THAT CHURCH.

Staying Connected at Riverstone

During this time, many people are feeling disconnected in so many ways, but we want to remind you that we are here for you! We know that God's Word tells us in Matthew 18:20 that Where two or more have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.

There are many ways to stay virtually connected through our various ministry opportunities here at Riverstone Community Church and we would LOVE to see and hear from you. If you are not currently in fellowship with one of our communities below, we encourage you to reach out to the leader of the ministry that best meets your needs.
