- We know a God who likes to reveal Himself and His plans.
- We have a cohesive and authoritative Bible that we can trust.
- We have a God who has been, is and will always be in control.
- Do you believe God is moved by your prayers?
- What could you do without if you believed that you were deeply loved?
- Are you able to live in “Babylon” on “Jerusalem time?”
- When you see God’s control over the future how does that affect you in the now?
- How should the passage this morning shape the way you think about the Bible?
