|Bloom Where You're Planted|
|2 Kings 5:1-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of times people live in disappointment because they live a life of unbiblical nature. How many are truly faithful to God in the really tough times? Everything around you will change but God never changes. There is no reason to why we should be depressed all of the time, it's unbiblical. How many times to we put on the bullseye and just ask for the bad stuff to just hit us? We should choose to believe God no matter the circumstances. We should rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS. If you're walking around and state that you're suffering for Christ, then you're living a lie. We as a Christian have a responsibility to bring hope to the lost. The maid was a slave that was taken away from her family but she decided to bloom where she was planted. She had no control over her circumstances. You must decide if you're gonna be a victim or a victor. Greater is He that is in me than that who is in the world. You know you can't uncrack an egg or put the water back under the bridge. Did you know that NOT believing God is a sin? You realize that when one makes a statement of belief that, that in itself will cause one to welcome conflict. Do you pick and choose where you make your belief known? Folks are desperate for hope in this day in time. At what point in your life did attending church become hard?|

|Being A Martha|
|Acts 27:20-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The children of God have something to be joyful about. There are some things that we should just let go of. Stuff can bring one down and press down their joy. First and foremost one must be saved in order to have the joy that surpasses all understanding. Have you ever received that phone call in the middle of the night that just takes your breath away? All of us are or will go thru a tough time where we feel as if we can't get over it. All humans if left alone naturally will become depressed. It's a part of our nature. A lot of people want to talk and share the bad news. Don't we all make bad choices? A lot of times it's by human error but there are times that it's done knowingly. As we all know, we reap what we sow. There are things that are gonna hit you when you're unprepared. If your fear is death, God has already dealt with that and there's plenty of scripture to back that up. We've been taught that we should blame something for bad things happening. But God has said that even when they happen to be of good cheer. Just because bad things happen doesn't mean it was because of something bad. God takes ALL things and makes them ALL good for His believers. The truth is that we as humans will not be healed of everything or get thru every hard thing. The truth is that we will all die so something is going to take us all out. The difference is that the saved have someone to depend on. If you're a child of God rest assure He does not make a mistake. There are many saved people that could tell you their story of being low and down and thinking that all hope was lost. Then they have their "but God" moment when He comes and saves the day. So be of good cheer because God is with you.|

|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.

|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?|
