Lord of the Storm
A big storm is a small sampling of the power of our great God! From Psalm 29, Pastor Jack showed us that the enemy likes to attack our faith and give us a counterfeit; we often believe the lie and look to someone other than the Lord of the Storm to provide for us. Listen to “Lord of the Storm.”
