Pastor Walter Jackson was the preacher for the opening session of the Brackett-Morrell Association (Area 7) of the American Baptist Churches of the South. The session was held at the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church Blainesville, VA which was also the first pastoral call for Rev. Jackson in 1971 -1974.
In this sermon Pastor Jackson looks at several passages of scripture; Exodus 14:13,16,21-22, 27-31 and Isaiah 43:19 in the light of how God wants to do a new thing in us and often has to close the door on the old things and ways so that we can’t go back to them in order to move us forward in His NEW THING He is doing in us.
In this sermon today Pastor Walter Jackson looks at Job’s story in Job 1:20-22, 2;:11-3, Job 38:1-2, and how Job talked about God before he spent the time to talk TO God about his situation. What if in our complaining about our situation, God is getting us ready for a greater blessing but we must stop, listen and prepare our hearts for what God is planning for us.
