Good Morning! Watch a clip from one of the guest speakers at the Sister2Sister 2018 Women’s Conference from Memorial Day Weekend! What an experience it was to fellowship with all the beautiful women who attended! Can’t wait for the next one! Have a blessed Sunday morning and hope you hear a word in church today, wherever you are!
A few weeks ago The Church at the River was blessed by a word from Prophet Timothy Madu! Listen to a clip of the powerful message he shared with us! 😇🙏🏾🙌🏾

As amazing as God is, we often take him for granted. In our praise and worship time, let us not make light of the words we sing. Take note of what they really mean. This song proclaims that it is a privilege to worship the Lord and it is an honor to be in His presence. According to the dictionary, a privilege is a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group of people. We have been granted an advantage as children of God to use worship as a weapon in this Christian walk. Worshipping God is an act of spiritual warfare used against any attacks of the enemy. Don’t take your praise lightly, and especially don’t take your worship for granted. Paul and Silas literally broke chains with their acts of praise and worship, and so can we all.
Shout it out now! Lift up your voice and fight! “Great are You, Lord! Great are You, Lord!”
Psalm 100: A Psalm. For giving grateful praise.
1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. 2 Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. 3 Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. 5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

This young man is 15 years old, praising God with a song with lyrics that describe a testimony every single follower of Christ can attest to. Think about those difficult circumstances in your life, even the ones you thought got the better of you – Are you still standing? Are you still living and breathing and covered with God’s grace and mercy? That is because He made a way for you, even when we turn our backs on Him – He still wants the best for us all. Only the love of God can make that possible, only He can move mountains and cause walls to fall and we have no idea how He does it, but aren’t you grateful? Are you not humbled? Are you not blessed??
This young is pouring out his heart to God, and we may not know why but we have every reason to be like him. We have every reason to give God all the praise and all the worship.
You made a way
When our backs were against the wall
And it looked as if it was over
You made a way
And we’re standing here
Only because You made a way
You made a way
Deuteronomy 10:21: He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.
Ephesians 3:20-21: Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.
Worshipping God should be a continuous act, a sacrifice of praise, and today we encourage you to NOT BE SILENT! Cry out in those moments you need to, remembering the God you serve is greater than your circumstance! He’s greater than your doubt! He’s greater than your troubles! He’s GREATER THAN YOUR FEARS! The best advocate for change in your circumstance is YOU, no one can worship God for you! You may not be able to change it right now, but you can your attitude and give God all the praise He deserves. If you woke up this morning, you are blessed and God has a plan for your life. Tap into the power you have as a child of God! Say to Him today, HERE IS MY WORSHIP LORD! ALL OF MY WORSHIP! Selah! Be blessed!
