|The Will of God|
|Romans 8:26-28 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Have you ever been in a place where you didn't know what to do?
Things that are known of the will of God, everything that's inside the Bible is His will. Gal 1:14; Jesus Christ gave Himself for our sins. It wasn't something that just happened. It's not Gods will that anyone should die lost. It's a personal choice when God calls that Salvation is excepted. 1 Thes; it's Gods will that we all to be holy. We should try to live sinless at all times. 1 Thes 5:13; we should also give thanks to God no matter what happens. Those are things that are known about Gods will. One must read and study Gods Word in order to know what His will is for our lives.
Just as we know what His will is, there are also things we don't know. Don't we beat ourselves up over doing the right things? Most all people don't want to do the wrong things. Now the devil likes to confuse and he can come to us and whisper to us and we are fooled into thinking it was God. This is why we are to try the spirits. Rom 8:26 is clear stating that we usually don't know what to do. Christ Himself wrestled with it in the garden making sure He was to follow thru with His sacrifice, His crucifixion. So how do we know we are doing the right thing, the Spirit of God dwells inside those that are saved and it makes intercession for those. This is the direct connection to doing the right things. Now if you've got sin in your heart then you're going to have a really hard time hearing and knowing what God says to you. This is because sin blocks out Gods communication because He can't help over the sin. Rom 8:27 this speaks about the shepherding of Jesus Christ searching out the heart and knowing the mind and whether it's truly yearning for God. If the mind of the spirit yearns for God then He makes intercession in our behalf to God His father. Rom 8:28 clearly states that ALL things work together for those that love God. The variable is that if we love the world or some of it then you're not 100% in love with God. That has always been the problem with us as humans. We should love Him more than anything else and if we do, nothing else will matter because it will ALL be taken care of.
This all sounds simple but the devil comes against us and causes us to doubt and fear. This happens because he wants to destroy us all. The little things are usually what we struggle with but put your focus on God and your relationship with Him.

|Privileged Beyond... (Part 2)|
|Hebrews 10:19-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Part one (Wednesday) declares the privileges that we have with God. God made a way for us to come to the throne of Grace thru Christ alone. A lot of people don't like to be told what to do. If someone told you that you have an ailment that you'll die from yet someone else comes to you and explains that they have the cure. You're reaction would be, whatever it takes I want to live. You'll be forever in debt to that person for that cure. Grace is free. This free is not an indication of it being cheap. There are some debts, responsibilities that we owe to God for that forever cure over death. 1. We should draw near to God. This means to get rid of the lusts of the flesh and come to an altar for repentance. In order to get close to God you must want to be close to God and take action. 2. We must stay close to God. There are some that once they are next to God they quickly fall away. The flesh is strong and doesn't want to stay close to God. Once you've been healed from that death sentence ailment you don't want to stay close to the one that healed you? That seems slightly ungrateful. 3. We should love one another and lift one another up. If they don't love you, love them more than yourself. If they hate you, love them. God loved you unconditionally even though you never deserved His love. Love as Christ loved. 4. We should not fail to go to church and worshiping with others. When we attend church with others and are faithful attenders it helps others. It provokes love amongst the fellowship of others. When one is absent then the rest suffers. It's not a burden to attend church, the problem is that your heart is loving something else more than God and others. Anyone that joined the church did it on their own accord. You joined because you wanted to. When you joined you made an agreement to love, help and faithful service to the body of Christ, the church. We as a country are in a bad shape. No matter whom the president is elected, the masses are simply in a state of not caring for their neighbor. We will either repent as a nation or stand in Gods judgment. So when you see the day approaching of Gods wrath, the body of Christ becomes more and more important.|

|We Need to Rebuild the Altar of God|
|1 Kings 18:30-39 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Mans heart is continually evil when there's no God in it. We all have a God shaped hole that can only be answered and filled by God Himself. It's not enough we come to church and nod at the preacher and pray little prayers. Prayer needs to be a two way straight. Our relationship with God should be a two way relationship. That's how we grow. Pray! Things don't happen because we don't pray. We need to repair the altars. How do they get broken down? 1. On purpose - willfully contrary to God living as if they have no God. 2. Weak - some who have not grown in the Lord neglected the truth and need to use what God has given them. If God can do all things then why are they not happening? Because we didn't ask. These small prayers of food and clothes are already provided for. We should seek God for the extraordinary. Altars are necessary points of intersection. Most of us pray selfish prayers. We've not surrendered to the will of God. If you get serious with God, He'll get serious with you. There's a reason to pray for the souls of mankind that need intercession. A sacrifice is involved at the altar of God in order to get right with God. We must get rid of something. The altar of God is a place of intercession and sacrifice. Prayer is a dialogue and not a monologue. Anything you rely on that's not God is Baal, a false god. The altars of God are also of faith. The altar was established for the people to restore the people back to God. When you pray, believe God can do the things you ask and He will. When you truly commit yourself to prayer your life will change. The altar is also a place of action. Gods children are more than spectators. We have an active work to do. Every member of the body of God is expected to carry the load. Not just a few but everyone should do their part. We have to respond as a people to God in order to see prayers answered and live changed.|

|Just In Spite Of|
|Romans 7:18-8:8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There will be times in a Christians life when the devil will throw your past in your face. You're flesh craves the bad things, what the devil gives and reminds. A weapon that can be used to fight the devil against your past is that God has cast your past sinful life as far as the east is from the west. Satan can not condemn you of something that Christ has removed. A saved person can not stay in sin. They may linger in sin but, in the end a decision must be made. Those that are lost walk in sin and will not and can not please God. The best part of it all, 1 John 2:1-2 you will never walk alone if you're saved. Attending church is not something you have to do, it's something you should want to do. Are you wondering where God is in your life? Has it been awhile since you've felt God?|

|A Hit or Miss Prayer Life|
|Jude 1:17-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|As long as we are here on earth there will always be a need in prayer. We will focus on Jude 1:20. Prayer should be a committed thing in our lives. If prayer is the communication between us and God then it must be important. In order to pray in the Holy Spirit we must be clean before Him. We need prayers that changes things and the only way that can happen is praying in the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:26 How many find it hard to pray? How can one pray for something when one doesn't know what the will of God is? A lot of times church folks speak little prayers because their faith is weak. Commitment is the first step in having a true prayer life. If one regards iniquity in their hearts, God will not hear them. One must be right with God in order to commune with Him effectually. Sometimes we pray because we are selfish or prideful. Romans 8:27|
