|Stay Away From Evil Things|
|1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|People don't want to hear this saying anymore. People want to live the way they want to, however they want and whenever they want. Once you're born again you are no longer yourself but holy. How many of you have damaged your testimony because you've messed with something that you know you shouldn't had? Did you know that people are watching you whether you want them to or not? To some people the only "bible" they know is thru your life. Staying away from evil cramps people's style.
Let's just be honest for just a minute, look in the mirror and you should see a person that has problems with staying away from evil. One of the hardest things to do is to control the tongue. The scripture doesn't just apply to the preachers or deacons. It was addressed to ALL Christians.
It's very difficult to get a persons confidence back after it's been lost. You're the one that the lost is watching and taking note on your actions. Christians have been pulled out of the world and therefore shouldn't be IN the world. The lost are constantly looking for hypocrites.
One must prove it first to make sure it's of a Godly nature. Do the "smell test". Stop and take the time to evaluate prior to doing them. There is no grey area when it comes to right or wrong. The grey area is created by us that wants to feel good about doing something wrong, therefore it would classified as wrong. The power of the church is based upon the faithfulness or life of its members. Phil 4:8, there are things that should be done in front of the lost.
One can't unscramble the eggs or put the toothpaste back into the tube. What do you do if you've messed things up with your testimony/life? Change, there is an expectation that each time you attend church there should be a change. When we change the lost will see it and want to know what's the difference. We should apologize to them for acting out wrong.

|Psalm 46:1-11 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Even when you're really still you're often times still busy within. Most everyone lives by some sort of timeline. Be still. Let go and let God. We must stop with the television, cell phone, etc. These things take up our times with God. A sacrifice is often made because we don't want to give up those things. A lot of our instruction requires us to be still. Check your "to do lists" and make sure that God is on it. At the top of the list should be, be still for God. One can't say that they don't have time to be still with God. There has always been 24 hours in the day. The problem is that stuff takes up that time and we are unwilling to remove the stuff and replace it with God. Make an effort to make time for God. Our schedules should have God in them and if they don't then what does that say? It will fall apart if I'm not involved. This is false, God is in full control and without Him it would fall apart. We are replaceable. Look in a graveyard and you'll see it full replaced people. The things they once did someone else has picked it up and are continuing it. Are we not like a person that's afraid of a bee? The devil comes around and we begin flailing around trying to stop him. All the while WE have no control over the devil by ourselves. God is the only one that can rid of of the devil and his pestering actions. We must put God first, be still. We must all graduate from kindergarten when it comes to our spiritual lives. Get off the milk and start consuming solid foods. Prayer along is alright but you need more Jesus to truly live. We must know Him, intimately, personally because He wants to hold us. God is asking us to stop and be still for just a moment so He can be close to us. Once you get to that place, hope grows as well as our faith.|

|Remember Who've We Got|
|Psalm 42:1-5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|As a Christian we will have to walk thru some rough patches. No matter the roughness, we should always praise God. Do you live in a place where all you've got is tears? Tears that cry out where God is? When your life in in good shape you never doubt where God is at. But when the times get hard we often doubt that God is even around. When you're down and out, don't just sit down, get up and get to church. God speaks more than Sunday mornings. What if what you needed was preached on Sunday night and you decided not to show up?
Verse 5: Disquieted means to be worried. Are you worried about something in your life, your work, health? We should put our hope in God. If God is supporting us then what could knock us out of His hands?
Christians have God on their side. Never forget that God is for us and is the God of ALL control, Gen 1:5. God stepped out on nothing and made something and is in control of it all. Ps 24:1-2, everything is Gods, there is nothing that's not. Ps 136:1-9, mercy is not getting what do deserve. God has control over the day and He controls the night. He is in full control.
He is the God of safety, Gen 7:17-18. God said to come into the Ark not go into because He was in the Ark providing safety. Ps 143:9-10, when we think of enemies we often think about others that do not like us. But our biggest enemy is within our head, our mind. It tells us things that are not true and causes us to doubt. Prov 18:10, just the name of Jesus is a safety. Just think, if just His name is a strong tower, what is His person? The prodigal son once he realized and came to his senses, dropped what he was doing and ran back home to his father. His father seen him coming from afar and ran to his son. It didn't matter what his son smelled like, looked like or what he had done. The father still loved his son.
He's the God that's a way maker, Ex 14. When all you've got is a wall of doubt in front of you, God is a way maker. Just let go of it and let God deal with it. Did you know that the wall in front of you might be for someone else's life? Once God brings you thru it, tell others where you came from.
1 John 3:1, God is the god of love. It's an honor to be a child of Him. Christians know whom they belong to and we always go back to God for help. Did you know that you're not an inconvenience to God? Rom 5:8, God didn't just say He loves you, He showed it and proved it by sending His ONLY son to die for our sins. Jer 31:3
Ps 73:25-26, we must remember whom we have. If we are ever going to be overcomes then we have got to start living like we don't have God. Who do you have? Do you know if you've got a relationship with God?

|From Faith To Trust|
|Proverbs 3:5-6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Faith and trust are not the same. Just because you believe God doesn't mean you trust Him. Faith is believing in something that you have no visible proof of. If you don't believe in God doesn't make Him not there. It takes faith in God to be saved. Trust is the actual work in which we believe. You can believe that a parachute will save you but until you use or proven it you can't trust it. Once you jump out of the plane you lose all control until you put all your trust in the parachute. Mark 9:23, Eph 3:23, Heb 13:5, John 3:16, Rom 5:8 We believe in these things but do you put your trust in them? We should turn loose of this world and put all trust in God. God is calling us into something that we no control over. We believe that thru God all things are possible but we bring Him down to that of a person and not fully trust Him. God wants to navigate you thru all things in life but unless you put all your trust in Him, He can't do that. Psalm 33:5, 1 Peter 1:6-7, Rom 8:28 Turn loose of this world and let God guide you.|

|Donkeys, Elephants and the Lamb|
|John 14:27 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|In this upcoming election we are at a turning point. No matter who me is elected our confidence is not in the elected president. We as the children of God have one thing that we must do and that's to surrender ourselves to God. It's time that the children of God to wake up! There is not a man or woman that can lead us out of the destruction the devil throws. We as the United States are already headed down a path of destruction. Neither elected presidential candidate can save us from the destruction ahead, only God can save us. We are not the most wicked nation but we are leaving the Rock that keeps us solid. God rules over the land just as He did in the beginning. The battle is not ours but the Lords. God knows every ploy of the enemy. The truth is, is that with every election is a historical election. Romans 13:1 The real power is not the president but God that rules over the presidents and the world. God has a plan to eternity and we only see a small glimpse of that. Romans 3:2-7 We should do right not wrong, murdering people outside of an abortion clinic is not the right thing to do. We should pay the taxes even though we would not agree with them. Don't be afraid or dismayed because our hope is not in the man but in God.|
