March 30, 2020 – Five Things We Know God is Working Toward

During yesterday’s message on “God Is In Control” from Daniel Chapter One, I mentioned five things that God is working toward; these are things that we can confidently pray because we know that we are praying according to his will—“This is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.” (1 John 5:14)

Here Are the five; these are good guides for our prayers today and everyday:

The Glory of God

“Everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory.” Isaiah 43:7

“Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name give glory!” Psalm 115:1

The Salvation of Sinners

“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:10

who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:4

The Character of Christians

“My little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you!” Galatians 4:19

“Make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.”

2 Peter 1:5-7

The Building of His Body

“So with yourselves, since you are eager for manifestations of the Spirit, strive to excel in building up the church.” 1 Corinthians 14:12

“The whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” Ephesians 4:16

The Destruction of the Devil and his Works

“Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil.” Hebrews 2:14

“The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8
