Part 5 :: Can I trust God with my success?


Success is the achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted. In this teaching, Pastor Milo considers how we trust the Lord with that. Looking at Daniel 1 we consider the steps he took, to trust God, in a pagan culture, to succeed in ways only God could provide.

Part 10 :: Can I trust God with change?


What is God wanting to change in your life? More than likely, it has less to do with changing your circumstances and more to do with changing your heart. In this teaching, Pastor Milo looks at the life of Josiah as an example of how our future isn’t hostage to our past, if our hearts are surrendered to God’s purposes.

Continuing with the thought of trust, God and marriage, Pastor Mike looks deeper at the story of Hosea and Gomer. How are we to trust God with our marriages in the face of overwhelming disappointment? Does God give me any “outs” that I can use to relieve the pain?
