|Stopping The Voices|
|Psalm 40:1-4 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|David endured physical afflictions and he often prayed about them. Also, he prayed for his enemies. Just as he, discouragement affects us all and it all begins in our minds.
God can hear you as long as you have repented and hold no inequity in our hearts. If God granted every prayer we asked Him instantly then He would surely be our spare tire. But God makes us wait thru patience.
Our mind is liken to a horrible pit full of never ending noise. We can not stop it no matter what we do and try. Always thinking, always listening, always wondering and doubting. The miry clay being depression that our mind will usually begin to think about if we don't put our minds at ease thru Christ. People today are screaming to be rescued from their own minds.
The clearest your mind will ever be is when you allow God to work in your mind. Prayer can bring clarity and remove the doubt in our minds. Not only will God clear your mind and ease it but He will also place you on something solid that you DO know.
How many have things are rolling around in your mind that you can't get rid of? A grudge against someone? Worried about a sickness? Stressed about a lived one?
For a child of God we are not a victim but a victor! We choose everyday which one you want to be.

|Galatians 6:7-10 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|Seems as if there is a great need for patience. Folks don't seem to want to wait anymore for just about everything. When we plant a garden we plant seeds, those seeds take time to grow. If one is patient then they should receive a great harvest.
There is a reaping whether it be a good harvest or bad. Depending on what is sowed depends on what is reaped. Consequences for sin is a harvest that can never be removed for the rest of ones life. We all have a choice to make whether they will do good or bad. Don't be deceived because the penalty for sin is great. Some of the leaders of our country are deceived. We can make laws and change them to try to make a persons live a certain way but none of these changes will ever lead to goodness. People no longer have the fear of God in their hearts therefore they live a life of worldliness. God holds your very breath and should be reverenced as such. For whatever reason God still has mercy for this country even though most have forgotten who He truly is.
No matter where you go in your life at least one of Gods people will be with you. Don't be deceived by what the world says. Just as in Noah's time, they mocked God and him as he built the ark. In the end, God sent the flood and only saved those that believed In Him, Noah's family.
Now if one plants a seed of corn then one expects a stalk of corn to grow from that seed. Why would anyone expect anything less about the choices of the way they live and sow life or death. There is a difference in knowing that you're doing wrong and continuing and not knowing. To know and do against it is called rebelling.
One can't live like they want to during the week and expect God to be worshipped on Sunday. So we should sow to the Spirit Monday thru Sunday and we will reap what we sow. How many struggle on Mondays to show your happy in your spirit? We should take every opportunity we get to uplift our fellow man especially our brothers and sisters in Christ. But, something holds us back and it's because we are humans and therefore we are sinners. We should fight against the sinful nature of our flesh striving to overcome it to uplift the name of Jesus.
If you act like, dress like, talk like and look like the world, then how is the world supposed to know that you're a Christian?
Seeds don't grow instantly, therefore don't give up. People usually don't come to Jesus instantly, don't give up on them! Keep planting the seeds of love and be patient.

|There is Despair When There is No Success|
|1 Kings 19:1-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Elijah prayed for rain and within hours it was raining but shortly after during his miracle the enemy came to him. The goal was not about rain, it was about men changing their hearts towards God. When the enemy came to Elijah he ran off away from the enemy. If a man like Elijah could be caught in a snare all the while in Gods miracles, how could we do it? Have you ever been there in great despair? Have you ever prayed, studied, worked and fasted but nothing happened? We can't make someone get saved, change them or make certain things happen by our doings. During Elijah's despair there was no body around to help him in his time of need. No one was their to help him see that God was still there when the enemy was punching him in the gut. In your work place, if you don't perform your job then there is no paycheck. But in God work, He already knows your work and your payout isn't truly based on your work. Think about when the preachers preach and the response is great from the congregation. But thinking about the same thing and on Sunday nights folks nap during the service. Have you as a church member ever thought about cancelling a church service because no one is there in attendance? Nothing gets done when we wallow in our disappointments. Have you ever known God not to be with you? Gods people will end up in despair at some point in their Christian walk but they always end up at Gods feet. God will pick them up and put them back on their journey each and every time. So when you get disappointed, you'll sit down, backslide.|

|The Ram Is In The Thicket|
|1 Corinthians 10:13 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The trials we go through are common but they seem personal when they affect our selves. But why do we go through them? First we need to understand temptation. Temptation is a test given from someone. We must ask ourselves if the test is from God or Satan. 1 Peter 1:1-9, at times it might feel as if the test is too hard. If it's a test of God then it's to grow you as a stronger Christian. In these test from God we can either pass or fail them. We can always run away and try to do it ourselves but when it's Gods test we can only run so far on our own. At times we like to blame the devil for tests that are of God. When God makes a promise He will keep it to the very end. God is always very purposeful in everything. Through tribulation we receive patience. The trial of your faith strips away the worldly trusts to point the focus all back upon God. He gives us our health, financial freedoms, etc. God will never test you with evil. The devil will test us with things that appeal to the lust of the flesh. God will not test you with another women to check your love for your wife. This means that for the most difficult battles you've went through God was behind them? Yes, because those are the toughest items to break through in your life. We usually don't have the answers to why He tests. We often don't have the answers as to when the test will begin or start. In the end, we will make it through because in the end the answer is because God brought me through.|

|Do You Have Hope?|
|2 Corinthians 5:1-2 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|If you're a Christian there is a day coming that all the burdens of life will come to an end. There will be no more death, sickness, aches or pains. The world is searching for a remedy to fix the sorrow of the earthly life. Would you know a heavenly built place if you seen it? It's builder is of God where no mans hands have ever touched it. The fact about our flesh is that it will dissolve back to the earth. To most Christians it's the struggles to the end that bothers and stresses. The end of a Christians earthy life is just the beginning of a life of eternity with the savior Jesus Christ. Many of persons have almost went to the edge of life but God spared their lives for His purpose. Others, God has called them out of this world. Do you have hope? Is your hope in this world or is it in the things to come? Do you have a house being prepared in heaven? Is there a dread when you think about death?|
