|Our Lifeline, Prayer|
|Daniel 6:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|While examining yourself, how often do you pray to God? Churches often have a revival once or twice a year but, while these revivals are good they do not last. We should have an internal revival daily within ourselves. Our human flesh does not want to humble itself to God. Most of the times we find ourselves on top of the mountain and not praying. We all need God on the mountain tops the same as in the valleys. How do you help people see the need they need? It's hard enough to see it in ourselves. Often in our lives the things around us are brought upon by disasters that happen around us. Most Wednesday night services were started because of the wars our country were in to pray for our loved ones and the countries safety. What's to be expected if we fully give ourselves to prayer? You may not be able to do a lot of things but the one thing that each and every person can do is pray. Do you truly care for the people around you? We must be honest when it comes to the works that we should be doing. We often say, "that's not my job", "they're not my family", etc. There have been great revivals in history. Simple men standing and proclaiming God to hundreds if not millions of lost and saved alike. Great revivals are not dictated on the time they were because great revivals have been going on since biblical times.|

|Why Have You Done This?|
|Jonah 1:1-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Why did Jonah want to disobey God? It wasn't that he just wanted to rebel against God. He tried to get away from the presence of God. Our human flesh does not want to have anything to do with God. Have you ever looked in the mirror of self and wondered why you did a certain something? Why did Eve go out and do what God plainly told her the one thing not to do? Because of Adam and Eve we were cursed to die and suffer. Now we are not talking about the lost, we talk about the ones that are saved and know better. We could go down all of the scripture looking at all the followers of God and see where they made a choice to go against God. The reason that the saved can't keep themselves is because we are all sinners, we live in a sinful body. One can't sow a seed in the flesh and expect it to grow spiritual fruit. Even a farmer knows that he can't plant an apple seed expecting to grow an orange. Having a thought is not the sin, it's when the thought is acted upon is when sin is conceived. What's so appealing to the comfort of our bed, the softness of our pillows that causes us to not come to church on Sunday mornings? Every day Christians are making the choice to do what they want to do instead of turning their life back to God. Just as God prepared a fish for Jonah He will prepare something in the Christians life to turn them back. There is a time coming in a backslid Christians life that God will either turn you around or take you out. You're either running from God because you're lost or because you're backslid. If you keep going back to the sins of this world and can't seem to avoid those things that you're probably lost. Once you've been born a again you will not want to do those things because you're a changed person. Just as any good and loving parent will do God will also chasten His children when they do wrong. He does this because He loves His children and wants them to behave.|

|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.|

|What Happens When Our Awe Is Right|
|Psalm 4:1-8 (Part of the Revival 2018 series).|
God will hear you when you call out to Him. Did you know that prayer is NEVER out of order? If God has called you to do something, do it and God will bless you. We should have a fear of God, not in fright but in who He is. So what's it take to have a revival? Stand in awe. The world has no reverence towards God but so has the church.
We will see a difference in our sin. Our view of our sin will be different. When our heart and attitude is right then it will defend from sin. No fruit means your not connected to the tree. People shouldn't have to wonder if you're saved or not. Many like to reason with God. If His word says it's wrong, then it's wrong. If you're standing in awe of God then you ain't got time to sin. Take inventory of who God is. How do you see your sin? Are you playing with it, living with it, about to cross over the line with it?
We will have confidence to trust God. What is it that you're holding back from God that you feel that you don't trust Him? Prov 3:5-6 this roles out of our lips good but does it reflect our life? All we need is for God to hear us cause once He's heard it, it's not yours anymore. Did you know that once you trust God then it's easier to obey Him?
We will see His goodness. Psa 34:8 The things that we used to beg for have become a common place. Two leave the church house and you can ask them how church was. One will say that service was the most awesome service they've ever been in. The other will say that it went okay. It's not about the music being good. It's not about the attendance being good. It's not even about whether the preaching was good.
We will experience joy in its fullness. Mat 2:10 there was no joy after being with King Herod however when they seen the star they had great joy. One should always expect God to great things and have a great joy about it. Mat 28:6-8 when we stand in front of our Lord it will bring joy that can not be contained.
We will know the peace of His presence. Phil 4:7 how can one have peace when hell is coming against us? It's not our battle to fight, it's Gods. John 14:27 God gave you himself and that's enough.

|Your Only Hope|
|Psalm 39:6-13 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Some are in a place today because you made a choice by yourself without Gods guidance. It has brought negative consequences on your life but there is a remedy. We as humans often think we know what's best. That usually gets us into a bad shape. We should fear God as in a second He can bring us into subjection.
Materialistic items will be left behind at death. Your mind, your health and all of your belonging will all be left behind. All of your current endeavors will be in vain at the time of your death. If life is truly vain then what is there to look forward to at death? Put your hope in the Lord! If you're lost this life is as good as it's going to get but, if you're saved then this current life is as bad as it's going to be.
We as humans all have things that mean absolutely nothing at death. We must repent of those material junk items. The Word of God, the bible, was not written about you therefore it's not about you. The bible was written on One and that was Jesus Christ.
God chastises those that are His because He loves them and wants them to do better. God knows exactly how to chastise those that are saved because He knows us inside and out. He knows each and every person and what it'll take to bring one under submission. The saved should at some point know that when God calls one out, stop, listen and obey. The saved should never think that God wouldn't chastise them. God can and will bring you down if you do not repent of the sins in your life. When God chastises it breaks down the pride down to nothing.
Be so heavenly minded so you're no earthly good. We live in a Godless society. Flesh is everywhere! The saved should feel more like a stranger in this life than a welcomed guest.
Stop fighting against God. What you need can be found on your knees thru repentance.
