Expectations seem to be as vast or as limited as those in whom we place our trust. If I place my trust in finite man, my expectations will be just as limited. When this happens, my attitude becomes cynical and my hope loses its luster. My faith will become filled with holes rather than become holy. Does my zeal and motivation change when I put my trust in my infinite God? Does my attitude change when my trust seeks a higher altitude? If our trust is in a limitless God, then our hope will become holy and our expectations in this life and the life to come will be just as vast. Why is it so important to determine where our Hope resides? Why does it matter that I put my Hope in the awesome power of God? If we become lack luster, or jaded in our walk, we will cease to walk. Our hands will become feeble and fall to our sides and our feet will bring us to our knees. Isaiah wrote to Israel explaining where they must place their hope and expectations. “Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, “My way is hidden from the Lord, and my right is disregarded by my God”? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:27-31). The Apostle Paul describes the consequence of having a limited expectation of our limitless God. “If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied” (1 Corinthians 15:19). With our hope set on our Creator, we will be able to soar above the limits of our pitiful flesh and attempt great things for the Lord. If we attempt greatness, then our great God can provide greatness. Where is your trust? Do you expect great things from God? -A Note From the Harp

The Importance of Prayer By: Tim Shoemaker If one read through the Bible, he would soon understand the great importance that the word of God places on prayer. Some, however, feel that prayer is a useless thing. They reason that since God is no longer working miracles today, then it is senseless to ask him to do something such as healing someone who is sick. How- ever, God is not limited to miracles to answer our prayers. God can and does answer prayers by means of His providence. The importance of prayer can be under- stood by what the Bible says about prayer. It grieves God when we neglect praying. God, through the prophet Isaiah, said: “This people have I formed for myself; they shall show forth my praise. But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel” (Isaiah 43: 21, 22). Think how you would feel if your children never spoke to you. You would be grieved. In the same way when we as God’s children fail to speak to Him, God is grieved. Many times evil will overtake a man because he has not prayed to God as he should. “I will also stretch out my hand upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from his place, and the name of the Chemarims, with the priests; and them that worship the hosts of heaven upon the house-tops; and them that worship and that swear by the Lord, and that swear by Malcham; and them that are turned back from the Lord, and those that have not sought the Lord, nor inquired of Him” (Zephaniah l: 4-6; cf. Daniel 9: 13, 14). Consider some other factors that show the impor- tance of prayer. It is a sin to neglect to pray. “Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and right way” (I Samuel 12:23). The Bible teaches us that to continue in prayer is a positive command. Paul com- manded us to “Pray without ceasing” (I Thessalonians 5:17). Sometimes we fail to enjoy some of the blessings of life because we fail to ask for them. (Matthew 7: 7-11). The example of righteous people shows to us the impor- tance of prayer. People like Abraham, Moses, Samuel, Hannah, David, Solomon, Daniel, and Elijah were people who prayed much and were blessed much as a result. But no example is greater than that of our Lord Jesus. Jesus was One who prayed to God constantly. The fol- lowing is only a partial list of the times recorded in the Bible when Jesus prayed. Matthew 14-23; Matthew 19:13; Matthew 26-36, 39, 42, 44; Mark l:35; Mark 6:46; Mark 14:39; Luke 5:16; Luke 6:12; Luke 9:28-29; Luke 16:27; Luke 28:32; John 14:16; John 16:26; John 17:l ff. -To be continued Save The Date October 6 –Joey Treat– PM Service October 20– Graham McDonald – Preaching at 8:15 am & 10:30 am October 26– Trunk or Treat All ages are invited Class @ 9:30 Lunch this Tuesday Bring your best Fall dish WEDDING SHOWER Brendon & Courtney Clayton TODAY– Fellowship Hall 2pm-4pm Gift Cards Everyone is invited DEACON MEETING OCTOBER 13 4 pm- Rm 1-New Building Men’s Retreat November 1-2 Sign up sheet in the foyer Time to sign up for Belize Campaign March 20-27, 2020 Cost $850 Sign up sheet in the foyer Connection Groups The Connection Groups of John Gallagher and Richard Harp will have a pot luck dinner on Wednesday, October 9, in the Fellowship Hall.
