The recipe for happiness doesn’t come in the stuff of the world, but the stuff of God’s Word. Job 1:1,5 Job 1:22 Job 2:9,10 Psalm 1:1 Psalm 1:2 Psalm 1:3 Psalm 1:4-6 We are best equipped for our journey with Jesus carrying God’s Word. And while the journey may not always be happy, the destination will be.

Sermon Big Idea: We have people in our lives we look to for rescue, but only one we look to can bring salvation and it’s Jesus. Deuteronomy 18:15-18 We’ve been called or appointed, miraculously rescued, and are being trained in righteousness. Our response can be to grumble, complain, reject, make excuses, or look to Jesus.
