|The Call To Prayer; Having A Blank Check|
|Jeremiah 33:3 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Now if God is going to command us to pray then He will answer us. He will do His part. We need to be reminded by God. How do we know that God will answer our prayer? One, because He said He would. Now we like to pick and choose what we want from the Bible. But the Bible plainly states that He answers prayer. Number two, the nature of God, He is love. Now consider the nature of your prayer. When we meet certain conditions and God is love and mercy, would He not answer us? Now if God heard your prayer when you were a sinner asking for salvation, how much more would He hear you if your one of His, saved? Can God fail? Can God lie? Third, thinking about the times that He’s already answered the prayers. He has proven Himself faithful over and over time and again. Now God doesn’t go against His will. Everything that He answers it’s always for our better good. Now the answers may not be what we think it should have been. At times He may want us to wait some and grow patience. God is saying that anything is possible but it’s not our job to fill in the blank check. We must be careful with what we ask God. Don’t limit God on what we ask. He goes far and above our understandings so we shouldn’t limit Him. Romans 8:28; if you’re born again then all things work towards you in the good. Now it may not look good at the time but we don’t know what’s best, only God does. God also does things that we can’t comprehend. At this moment our country seems to be falling apart at its seams. How many of us know what to do, how to fix it? Only God knows how to turn it around, we don’t. God is all knowing and always goes further than what we’ve asked. Prayer produces truth. Truth comes thru prayer. How many times have you read your bible and not gotten anything out of it? Try praying before you dig into His word and ask Him to feed you. True prayer grows us spiritually deeper to God. Jesus prayed all night on the mount because He needed to pick twelve disciples. Prayer delivers deliverance. Great deliverance often requires great prayer. Prayer also causes great service. We have got to pray in order to know what we need to do. It’s not the preachers job to bare your burden. He is more than happy to help pray for something but it’s your job as well. To be a great servant requires frequent prayer. If you’re born again then this means that you prayed for Him to save you. We must commit ourselves to prayer. Romans 8:32|

|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.

|Will You Wait For A Second Chance?|
|Daniel 4:28-30 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Daniel knew that God could help him but ahead had to ask first, he had to do something first. All of our lives are incomplete and unfinished. When something comes together and you feel as if everything is going good for you, don't slip up and think YOU got yourself there. God is the only one that could get you to the place that you're in with His mighty blessings. King Nebuchadnezzar had to be changed from the inside out in order for him to eat the grass as like a cow. The king was warned and told to change but he decided to not hear that. Will you make that same choice? You're not promised like the king, seven years to think about it. One time is all that God said He would call your name. One of the lies from the devil is, "if Jesus could do just this one thing". Jesus did it all on the cross for your sins. No amount of miracles or healing can prove His love or to change your mind. Repentance postponed is a ticket to Hell.|

|Kind, Tender-Hearted & Forgive|
|Ephesians 4:32 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We often overlook how to be kind, tender hearted and to forgive others. It's easy to be kind to those that love you. We've all got a sin so shameful in the eyes of God. There was once a woman that was caught red handed sinning and was brought before Jesus. She just as us have a sin and if we were in that day we would have been brought to Jesus just as she was. She knew her guilt and so did everyone else there including Jesus. The people that brought her before Jesus only wanted to point out the woman's faults forgetting about the man she was with or even themselves. We must be careful about who or what we blame when looking at others. We must be about Jesus business and not of ours. In the case of this woman, the people tried to use the Word of God against the Word of God. But Jesus knew just how to handle their problems. A lot of Christians walk around with rocks and stones just waiting to throw them at someone they've caught sinning. A sinner doesn't need an accuser but a kind, tender hearted, forgiving person. Ephesians 4:32 He has called you out to be these things all around you.|

|It's About a Choice|
|Deuteronomy 30:15-20 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Many make Salvation a difficult thing. In the beginning God made Adam and Eve to have their own choice. There is nothing that you can do to separate you from the love of God. It's not difficult to make a decision, do you want life or death? God didn't make Adam or Eve love Him. He didn't make Moses to love Him, therefore He's not going to make you love Him either. You have a choice, He will not make you to be saved. The greatest of joys is to serve someone else. Have you made up your mind on who you will serve? One can't serve two gods, you will either love one and hate the other. No one is made to love God, it's a freedom that we all have whether we love Him. By default we are going to hell because we must choose God. It's an eternal choice that must be made once the invitation has been received because we don't know if we will take another breath. God wants you to choose Him because He loves you but in the end, it's completely up to you. Some keep going the wrong direction but expect different results. The table has been set full, the invitations have gone out, you're starving to death but, you just sit and watch other feast on the goodness of God. You can starve yourself to death. Have you made up your mind? Who are you going to serve? That simple choice will change you forever.|
