Don’t you know that God delivered you from so many situations? There are things in our lives that we do not want to share with others but there is NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING THAT GOD DOES NOT KNOW!! Having said this then you know GOD LOVES YOU! He could have killed you a long time ago but His mercy and His saving grace kept you. Thank you Jesus!
With an outstretched hand he brought out the Children of Israel from Egypt. After the 10tth plague (deaths of all first born), Pharoah let go of God’s people. Were they thankful? Temporary Bliss! He brought them through the Red Sea on dry land (not one of them stubbed their toe) but shortly after they were complaining. However Phroah and his army were drowned in the sea and their war instruments floated up to the surface (as God planned for these weapons to be for His children). After God protected them from the blazing sun with a Holy Cloud (Jesus) that covered about 3 to 6 million Jews and God kept them warm during the freezing nights with a Pillar of Fire (Jesus), they were still ungrateful and complained about no water to drink and no meat to eat! God gave them victories over their enemies (with Pharoah’s weapons) and the Promised Land (houses, lands, livestock, vineyards, vegetables, etc.) that they did not build, till, or plant. THEY STILL COMPLAINED. After Moses went up Mt Sinai for 40 days, they forgot about everything God did for them. So, they begged Aaron to make them a golden calf as a god to worship! HOW STUPID!
Where are are going? WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE STUPID ANY LONGER! We are going to get up and start praising the Lord for His manifold blessings in our lives. Thank Him for your life, the air you breathe, clothes, shoes, car, bed, sheets, cup, dishes, chair, sofa, area rugs, carpets, and for everthing (don’t worry how mundane it seems). You may be be blind, ugly, helpless, toothless, speechless, unable to walk, unable to drive, unable to hear, disabled, just lost a job, just got bad news from your doctor, or whatever the case may be BUT YOU ARE STILL ALIVE!!
GOD IS ABLE! GOD IS ABLE! GOD IS ABLE! GOD IS ABLE! Don’t be a sap and do not let the enemy and other people get you down. Praise the Lord for the saps, the fools, the idiots, the unbelievers, and the unhappy people who surround you. Every time you try to run from them, they are following you! They are calling you! They just will not let go of the hem of your garments! Soon as you take off the old garment, they grabe your new set of rags! Well now! Let the tears roll down your cheeks because you may have them for life. All the more you need the LORD JESUS!
BUT, you (WE) have a High Priest in the Heavens who is listening to your (OUR) every moan and groan. I want you to act crazy for the LORD and just delight yourself in Him. WHEN TROUBLE COMES YOUR WAY, ACT UP FOR THE LORD! Tell that devil and your friends, I don’t do that because the Lord told me not too! I don’t go there because the Lord told me not too! You go on and have a good time because maybe he Lord ain’t talking to you. And if He is talking you ain’t listening! GO AHEAD, TELL THEM …. I am obligated to the Lord God (who made heaven and earth) and I have to listen to HIM. I must obey and desist from sin because I don’t want God’ s wrath upon me. I don’t want no big sore on my nose, lips, or private areas. I don’t want my hair to fall out and I don’t want to go blind. I don’t want to be at the lab every six months on pins and needles. I don’t want the doctor to call me into his office for a private screening and I fall out on the doctor’s floor! I don’t want my friends to find out the truth about me! Therefore, I must tell Jesus all of my problems for He alone will come see about me!
GOD’S GOT EVERYBODY’S ADDRESS AND TELEPHONE NUMBERS. When you get tired of certain people calling, you change your phone number, you move away, and you do not leave a forwarding address or tele number. Right? But nobody can outrun the Lord! When you leave home, He is riding or walking along side of you. When you get where you are going, He is right there. If you take flight into the air, He is right there. If you take a boat, He is right there. If you go down into a cave, He is right there. So, where are you going to hide from the Lord? Although you still sin against Him (as there is none of us without sin), He still loves you unconditionally! HE IS THE BEST THING FOR YOU NOW AND FOREVER! Aren’t you glad now that you don’t have to pretend with Jesus! You can just kneel and say I’m sorry Lord….forgive me! AND MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS! Remember, the woman who was caught in the very act of adultery? Jesus forgave her and said, “Go and sin no more.” PRAISE THE LORD….PRAISE THE LORD….PRAISE THE LORD!
