My family and I were sitting in our living room one Sunday morning, still not able to attend our church service due to the social distancing guidelines. So we decided to listen to some sermons online. I remembered seeing a post a week or two ago on someone’s social media page of a sermon that caught my attention. I didn’t have time to listen to it then, and to be honest forgot all about it. But for some reason this sermon popped back into my head on this particular morning, so I did some searching hoping I would be able to find it again and listen to it with my family.
To be honest, at first this didn’t peak my interest because of the particular topic of the sermon. In fact, I didn’t even know what this sermon was about. All I knew was it was a sermon by Adam Weatherby, owner of Weatherby, Inc. a firearms manufacturer. Adam is an avid hunter and outdoorsman and he is someone I follow on instagram mostly because of our mutual interests and hobbies.
After listening to his message, I felt led to share it with all of you. I had no idea that he was going to use scripture from Joshua 1 (if you know anything about our story, you know the importance of that scripture). I had no idea he was going to talk about a young boy’s amazing testimony while having cancer. It was almost like this sermon was written specifically for us. There is no doubt in my mind, God purposely presented this message to me. It was what we needed to hear, and maybe something you need to hear too.
I feel like there is something we can all take away from this message, and apply to our own lives. This message certainly hit home for me and Lindsey with everything going on in our life. I hope you can listen and be encouraged too. I pray that whatever challenges may be burdening you today and in the days ahead, that you can lean on God and be free from the fear and uncertainty of this world.
Sometimes someone else’s words are way better than your own, so instead of me trying to share a similar message, please click the link below to watch Adam Weatherby’s sermon from Harvest Church in Billings, MT. I promise you will be blessed and encouraged by it.
