|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.

|Cloak of Disguise|
|Isaiah 6:1-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We fail to see the power in Gods Word, the holy bible. When He speaks things change, things happen and they happen just as He speaks. The word of God is what makes us free. In most cases our minds are tickled by the lies of the world which is why we choose not to listen to God's word. Your agenda does not matter when it comes to God's. There is not enough self help books in the world to fix and remove your sins. We often convince ourselves that we are all we need to correct our wrong doings. Salvation is not the end, it's the beginning of your life. Everyday the enemy, satan tries to get into our minds. Our biggest problems are ourselves because we are all flesh. There has never been a bigger lie that that of the, "I'm fine" attitude. We are we the only ones that allows the devil to control our lives? It's because we want to, we are ignorant. God's truth has always been there to remove the false nature of the devil. One can't get close to perfectness without realizing your not perfect in comparison. We are worried about what others think about us more than what God knows about it. We have no excuse to lose. We live defeated lives because we chose to not live as Christ has told us. Why do we turn and resist God doing what we want to do when all the while God is the only one that knows what's good for us? Can you really see God? Can you feel God? Are their blinders in your life hiding your sins?|

|Just Give It To Him|
|(Part of the Miscellaneous series).|

|Are You Listening?|
|John 7:32 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God simply has to speak and things happen. God speaks to us still to this very day. The same voice that spoke the world into form. The same voice that calmed the seas. One simple thing about God's voice is that we all hear it unless it's hindered by our own sin. We get to a place where we are hardened to the truth. We hear God's word taught so often that we think nothing of it. The problem is not the speaker, but the one hearing. To those of us that are saved, He has already spoken to us and has cleared the doubt away. God has called but we lack obedience to do. God spoke to Peter and asked him several time if he loved Him. It wasn't that Peter couldn't hear Him. It was that God was asking him a deeper question, wanting a deeper answer. Peter wasn't listening with his heart, only his mind. Still to this day, God is speaking to us but we do not listen with our hearts. When God speaks it will either get rejected or accepted. Either way it will NOT go out void. We can blame our deafness on anything and everything but the truth is, it's our sins that causes it and our pridefulness to keep it. Do you feel that you've got a hard time in life? The work in others is not validation of Gods Word, God's Word is validation of itself. He speaks to everyone which is the validation.|

|Strength for the Journey (Part 1)|
|1 Kings 19:1-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Elijah was being prosecuted for his belief. One normally thinks that if one does wrong, being treated wrongly, one deserves it. However, the opposite of that is if one thinks they done nothing wrong, they shouldn't be done wrongly. God has called us into a work but not in order to do them by ourselves. When you put yourself away from the people of God then you've isolated yourself from help and have invited the devil to attack you. Once you've isolated yourself you begin to find yourself alone and depressed. You'll quickly find yourself giving up on the battle. Once you've given up on the battle, you'll just want to die. At the heart of the issue, it's that you've given up on God. You began to accuse God thinking that you know what's better. BUT God has never stopped loving you or given up on you. The first thing to do to get out of the rut, is to do whatever God tells you to do.|
