|A Life Of Prayer|
|Daniel 6:10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Daniel's practice was a life of prayer. It was the one thing that others could depend on was Daniel to pray. The second thing about Daniel was his house. His house was a place of prayer. This doesn't have to be an actual house. Luke 6 tells us about Jesus praying all night long on a mountain. At this time He was praying about calling 12 men that would be His followers as disciples. Is your house a place of prayer? If the church is the only place where you can get close to God then that's a sad thought. The third is that he opened up his windows that was towards Jerusalem. He wasn't ashamed for those to hear him prayer. How many have a problem praying at your own dinner table? We shouldn't be afraid or ashamed to pray. 1 Kings 8:46-50, Daniel was praying according to scripture. What's your Jerusalem? God doesn't dwell in Jerusalem nor in the temple or church house. God dwells within you if you've been born again. The fourth, he kneeled upon his knees. This means he was humbled, broken and at Gods will. If you're really wanting to affect things then you're going to have to be humbled. For Daniel just for as us, we should not let the ups and downs affect our prayers. Five, Daniel knew he was going to be thrown into a lions den and yet he continued to give thanks unto God. When it comes to praying we should not ask for something until we've given thanks to Him first. Daniel didn't know if God would deliver him or not but he still thanked God anyway. Are you bitter because you feel as if God didn't do it your way? God has never made a bad decision. Gods never messed anything up. The joy of having God is that you don't have to worry about finding a pastor or a friend in your very time of need. God is always there, always listening, and always loving.|

|Living A Broken Life|
|Daniel 5:18-22 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God is able to bring anyone down to a humility. Your pride will take you down. Had can raise a person up and He most certainly can bring them back down. Everyday people let pride stop them from worshipping God. Do you think your life is needed by God for something your capable of doing? David's fall wasn't his lust but his pride that made him think that since he was the king he could have anything he wanted. Pride removed half of Heaven when Lucifer was thrown from it. Guess what kills churches today, pride. How should we live a life without pride? We should live broken, humbled. Phil 2:1-3, this should be our guide in our lives. How many times have you attended church and thought you're doing good. You've read your bible and prayed some during the week. But once you've entered the church and worship begins it tears thru you because of your lack prideful thoughts of thinking you've accomplished something. 1 Peter 5:6, Phil 2:5, stay humble! We are hypocrites because most say that we are good but we are not. Phil 2:6, Jesus was sent to become a human man. He is God incarnate therefore the greatest humility that a God would become a person. Thinking of who was worth Christ's death to remove our sins. Not one person is worth His love. We are to love our neighbor as ourselves. You will never accomplish that while having pride in your life. Money can disappear tomorrow. Your health while good today could turn horrible bad tomorrow.|

|Luke 15:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of us want things that we think we are owed. We were owed death and hell but God seen otherwise. Some of us question Gods word for us and think we know better. There is a place in your heart that needs filled and during your life you'll try to put things in that hole to try to fill it. Nothing in this world will ever fill that void. Jesus is the ONLY thing that's able to fill that void and He will never leave that void once it's filled with Him. Repeating a prayer, having a prayer prayed over you by the pastor or having your name on a church membership doesn't make you saved or fill that void. If you think you've struck a deal with God that gives you the ability to do what you want (sin) then you've been badly mistaken. You're in the wrong. God has a plan for everyone, it's just a matter of accepting His call in your life. If you avoid His call, He will try to get your attention. Sometimes it takes a lot, sometimes it takes very little to grab your attention. A lot of times folks are scared of what you'll have to give up once you turn your life over to God. God will never leave you and if He calls you, He WILL carry you thru whatever He's called you to do. What God has done for us is just beautiful. We ALL fall short of the Holiness of Gods Glory but repentance and forgiveness gets us closer and closer. When you ask for forgiveness and you get that forgiveness, God doesn't hold it over you but in fact gives the feasts of feasts because He loves you.
If there is someone that thinks that Hell is just a big party and not that it of deal, they're completely in the wrong. Hell is to be feared and there will never be a "party" but torments and a fire that will never burn up the flesh and will never cease.

|Submit Yourself to God|
|James 4:7-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|It's hard to see submission without brokenness. Some want to be used but only partially. The requirement of being used is all or nothing. We should be ready at all times to be a willing vessel for a God. Submitting yourself to God requires a change. How many things hinder and hold you back from submitting yourself 100% to God? We want God to do these things for us but are unwilling to do what He's told us on submission. God should rule everything in your life. Unwilling, afraid, think you can't do... it's all because the doubt is stronger in your life that God is. You have not because you ask not. Obedience is better than sacrifice.|

|Nehemiah 8:9-12 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There is nothing greater than when God speaks. Do you know what it's like to have God speak to you? Our birth right or ancestry does not give us the right for God to speak to us. We should all be broken, humble before God. The joy of the Lord is our strength. There are a lot of thing in this world that will steal your joy. Some are weak from the weight of sin, the burdens of life but you need to find your strength. How many times have we been stolen from to the point that it starts affecting our testimony? So you've never felt this powerful joy, then you must look at the condition of your soul. What produces joy? The word of God as it declares that we are more than conquerors thru Christ. The Bible is truth and can never be wrong. It's the living word of the Living God. We try all things trying to get some sort of help. Some folks don't even carry their bible and don't even read it. It's like being in a marching band but never practicing or bringing the instrument. Obedience is also a joy bringer. God will deliver you if you just do what He says to do, John 15:10-11. 1 Peter 1:8 Our faith in the Word is also a joy builder. Do people look at you and think that you're unhappy or depressed? Do you find yourself wanting to be depressed, unhappy, miserable or angry? So if you've gotten out of control and missed the first three, then you've got to repent. If you've lost the joy of your foundation then you've lived contrary to Gods word. How can you be happy and joyful when God doesn't hear you? Obey, believe, study and repent in order to have joy unspeakable.|
