SERMON

 Looking through some papers (trying to clean) I found these notes of a sermon my husband preached in 1995. He was Pastor of our church for 21 years, until sickness caused him to retire. This is not his outline, just some notes I took down while he was preaching. I am glad I found them, made me remember what a good preacher he was!
Sunday Morning
Nov 26,1995
2 Samuel chapter 5
verses 23-25

23.And When David enquired of the Lord, He said "Thou shalt not go up; 
but fetch a compass behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.
24.And let it be, when thou hearest  the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then shalt thou bestir thyself: for then shall the Lord go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines."
25. And David did so, as the Lord commanded him;and smote the Philistines from Geba until thou come to Gazer.

 My Notes on his sermon;

1.Prepare to battle
  2-Thou shalt not go unless the Lord leads.
3.God takes care of everything.
4.Count it joy when trouble comes. 
5,God has a reason for everything,He will show you the right way to go. 
6-God has everything under control!  
7. God is soon returning to take His church away from this world. 
8-Sometimes angels are encamped around us. 
9. The only good that comes out of a man is what God brings out.



Leroy has been unable to preach for the last 5 years-strokes, cancer and Guilliame-Barre syndrome have taken their toll, but it is well to remember the  good years, and there were many. And God has not forgotten!!!
