Sermon Notes from Sunday, 2.10.13

Here are the sermon notes from Sunday (2.10), finishing the series on Elijah in 1 Kings.  You can get these notes in PDF and the sermon audio at  You can also get the audio via our podcast on iTunes (though we've had some issues as of late with this - sorry!).

Part 6 – When a Prophet Goes to Work
1 Kings 17

When a Prophet goes to work, he reveals God – just as when he calls, it’s God calling.

The Lord is God over…
Omniscience – His awareness
Omnipresence – His availability
Omnipotence – His authority

The Lord is God over rain and ravens.
He is aware of everything in the natural world.
He is available for everything in the natural world.
He has authority over everything in the natural world.

The Lord is God over false gods.
Our gods have names too:
The Lord demonstrates He is God over our idols.

Sending Elijah to Sidon meant an invasion of enemy territory.
When the Lord sends you to other lands, you do not go alone.

Affirmations of Awareness:
He knows where you are
He knows your situation
He knows about “that thing” in your family
He knows the relational dynamics
He knows your intention
He knows where you feel “lack”
Often challenged at that exact point
He is available in every circumstance
He has authority over every circumstance

He is fully aware of those who face death and its cause.
He is available for those who face death.
He has authority over everything – death included.
