WORSHIP

Sermon: The Things God Uses


Sermon Series:
The Story of Joseph


Featured Verse: 
Genesis 42:1-2

When Jacob learned that there was grain for sale in Egypt, he said to his sons, “Why do you look at one another?” And he said, “Behold, I have heard that there is grain for sale in Egypt. Go down and buy grain for us there, that we may live and not die.”


Sermon Summary

God is always up to something, and he’s always up to something more than we know. But if we can believe that he’s up to something more than we know, we can live with a sense of hopeful anticipation instead of a sense of impending doom.

11AM SONG LYRICS

RAISE A HALLELUJAH

CCLI Song # 7119315

I raise a hallelujah in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah Heaven comes to fight for me

I’m gonna sing in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder you’re gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes hope will arise
Death is defeated the King is alive

I raise a hallelujah with everything inside of me
I raise a hallelujah I will watch the darkness flee
I raise a hallelujah in the middle of the mystery
I raise a hallelujah fear you lost your hold on me

Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)

Sing a little louder in the presence of my enemies
Sing a little louder, louder than the unbelief
Sing a little louder my weapon is a melody
Sing a little louder Heaven comes to fight for me
Sing a little louder

I raise a hallelujah

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL NAME (WITH AGNUS DEI)

CCLI Song # 7068424

You were the Word at the beginning
One with God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You our Christ

What a beautiful Name it is, what a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a beautiful Name it is, nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is, the Name of Jesus

You didn’t want heaven without us
So Jesus You brought heaven down
My sin was great, Your love was greater
What could separate us now

What a wonderful Name it is, what a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a wonderful Name it is, nothing compares to this
What a wonderful Name it is, the Name of Jesus

Death could not hold You, the veil tore before You
You silence the boast of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring, the praise of Your glory
For You are raised to life again

You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever God, You reign
Yours is the kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name above all names

What a powerful Name it is, what a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a powerful Name it is, nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is, the Name of Jesus

Holy, holy
Are You, Lord God Almighty
Worthy is the Lamb, worthy is the Lamb

You are holy, holy
Are You, Lord God Almighty
Worthy is the Lamb, worthy is the Lamb
You are Holy

CANVAS AND CLAY

CCLI Song #7133880

In my mother’s womb
You formed me with Your hands
Known and loved by You
Before I took a breath
When I doubt it Lord remind me
I’m wonderfully made
You’re an artist and a potter
I’m the canvas and the clay

(And) You make all things work together
For my future and for my good
You make all things work together
For Your glory and for Your name

There’s a healing light
Just beyond the clouds
Though I’ve walked through fire
I see clearly now
I know nothing has been wasted
No failure or mistake
You’re an artist and a potter
I’m the canvas and the clay

When I doubt it Lord remind me
I’m wonderfully made
You’re an artist and a potter
I’m the canvas and the clay
I know nothing has been wasted
No failure or mistake
You’re an artist and a potter
I’m the canvas and the clay

You’re not finished with me
You’re not finished with me yet

THE LOVE OF THE FATHER 

CCLI Song # 6635756

Lift up your voices and lift up your praise
Join with the heavens declaring
The wonders of His faithfulness forever

Sing of the victory the hope of the world
The Savior has risen
The Spirit has come to bring us into love forever

Oh we are the people of God
With the freedom of hope in our hearts
How great is the love of the Father

Lifted from darkness and into the light
The sons and the daughters are loved at a price
Our God has made us His forever

This is the song of the redeemed
the ransomed and the free
Given life at such a price, this is love this is love
And when the Father calls us home
and we see Him on the throne
Hear the voices sing as one, this is love this is love
