TERRACE HEIGHTS ASSEMBLY OF GOD
IN THIS PLACE
ARE YOU IN A PLACE OF DISCOURAGEMENT?
Jacob probably didn’t expect to meet God out in the middle of nowhere, fleeing for his life after double-crossing his brother. But there God revealed Himself and unfolded wonderful plans for the future! Then Jacob declared, “Surely the Lord is in THIS PLACE, and I knew it not.”
 
 
ARE YOU IN A PLACE OF CURIOSITY?
Zacchaeus “wanted to see who Jesus was.” So he climbed a tree for a better view. Jesus singled him out and followed him home. There Jesus told him, “Today salvation has come to THIS HOUSE.”
 
 
ARE YOU IN A PLACE OF EMPTINESS?
Solomon built a house and invited God to move in. The One whom even the heavens cannot contain filled the temple with His glory. He said, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen THIS PLACE for myself.”
 
 
ARE YOU IN A READY-FOR-MORE PLACE?
The early followers of Jesus had received a promise of something more. “When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole HOUSE where they were sitting.
 
WHEREVER YOU ARE SITTING SPIRITUALLY, WE WELCOME YOU TO GATHER WITH US.
WE BELIEVE GOD MEETS US WHERE WE ARE.
 
THIS PLACE could be a place where you encounter God
in a meaningful way!

Out of Control!

I experienced loss of control automotive-wise, by way of complete brake failure as a teenager. I was alone, driving the family car down the old Inland Empire Highway between Grandview, Washington and Prosser, Washington approaching Krogh Road, which was my turn off to head for the family farm. I took my foot off the accelerator, and touched it lightly to the brake pedal. Did I say lightly? BAM! The pedal went all the way to the floor, and the car sailed on undeterred. Scary!
 
The reason for the adventure was that my dad had decided to economize. The hydraulic brake fluid was low in the system, so rather than pay the expense of buying more, he used kerosene, which we had plenty of. No problem, right? Not quite! It seems that kerosene had the effect of eating through the hydraulic hoses, eventually spurting out under pressure, leaving no pressure to apply the brakes. I was able to bring the car back under control, by shifting gears down, and using the parking brake, and thus safely home.
 
That leads up to this: control is very important. We are always subject to control. In the instance above, when I lost control, by way of loss of braking, the momentum of the car took over, and I had to go where it dictated until I was able to bring it back under my control, by using the braking power of the engine and transmission plus an auxiliary braking method.
 
Which brings me to this: we should be always aware of what or who is controlling us. The Bible declares that “the (mature) sons of God are led by the Spirit of God“. To be led, is to be under the control of, thus the control of the Holy Spirit will be present in a mature Christian life.
 
Here is a reverse “control” to be avoided: “Make no friendship with an angry man, and with a furious man do not go, lest you learn his ways and set a snare for your soul“. (Proverbs 22:24-45). A double warning is here. The angry man is under the control of, and led, not by the Holy Spirit, but by an angry spirit, and we are in danger of bringing ourselves under the control of the same by close association with him.
