|Miracles Still Happen|
|1 Samuel 1:9-28 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God does the extraordinary. He is not ordinary. There are a lot of prosperity speaking about as long as you do for God, He will do whatever you want. That teaching is unbiblical and is the furthest thing from the truth. God does what He wants when He wants to based upon only the future that He knows. God is still in the miracle business. Four points Sincere desire, 1 Sam 1:11; Hannah asked a particular thing. A single male child that she would give back to God. How many times when the miracle happens we put our hands around it and claim the miracle and not whom gave it? Believe the giver, 1 Sam 1:18, Heb 11:6; we are to believe that He is and He will. With God all things are possible thru faith. We do not know the will of God. Have patience, 1 Sam 1:19-23, when the miracle finally shows up often the vow is forgotten. It's better to not make a vow than to make it and then break it. Must be obedient, 1 Sam 1:25-28; if you're disobedience to God then He will not bless. At times, one miracle will usually lead to another miracle but one must stick with it.|

|Mark 1:1-11 (Part of the Communion Services series).|
|Jesus warned us that we should prepare ourselves to eat and drink of His body. God commanded them to make offerings unto Him as an atonement of their sins. It's all a very serious thing. It wasn't but a few years ago people knew that God was serious. People young and old, saved and lost, respected who God was and still is today. The bible tells us in the beginning a certain man would come as a final atonement for ALL sins. Throughout the bible we read of this man. The way to Heaven. Christ Himself said that He was going to prepare a place for Himself AND for us. There is but only one way to Heaven and that is thru Jesus Christ and NO other way, He Himself said this.|

|1 Thessalonians 5:17 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|One way to rejoice more is to pray more. There was a need to pray back in biblical times and for today. The problem then was that people didn't pray like they should just as today's time, Luke 18:1. I Luke 18 we read of a parable about a woman that kept asking for help. In the end the woman was granted her request because the judge was tired of her asking. How much more does God love us than that of the judge? Do you expect and answer immediately from God when you pray? Do you expect your request to be answered the way you want it when you pray? Do you even pray, pray without ceasing?
Why pray? Matt 26:41, one prays better when there is trouble in their life. So why do we pray? We pray because we are weak. We don't have the answers.
When to pray? Now Daniel prayed morning, noon and night. If we are not careful that will be the mandate that we will place on our prayer time. We should always be praying and reaching to Him. Every time that it is possible, we should be praying.
What to pray? Prayer is no more than opening your heart and knowing whom you're speaking to. Did you know that God already knows why and what we are praying for or about? Recognize whom God is, it should always have praise to God. We need some bread, we must be honest, bread is what we depend on God for. Our breath is our bread. Our body that works by itself, God controls, is our bread. A man can not forgive you of your sins no matter whom the man is. When we pray we should be asking what we need from within our hearts.
How to pray? The best example of this is when Jesus was in the garden praying, Matt 26. Jesus was fervent and was also honest. God is not fooled by a big speech. We should be open with God, He's not surprised. If you've got an problem with someone then you've got to be honest because He will want you to take care of the problem. So you didn't like how God answered your prayer, be honest about it. Fervent means that it's one on one. You must find alone time with God.
Will you pray? Every time the doors are open to the church we are always asking one to pray? It's always an open invitation to pray. No one is holding you back from praying. He's not fooled by you avoiding to pray.

|Long Suffering But Not Ever Suffering|
|2 Peter 3:3-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God only promised one opportunity to be saved, only one time will He invite you. We should be thankful for the chastening that God does to us. The chastening indicates that He loves us and wants what's best for us in His image. God shows us patience over and over and yet He doesn't have to. There are times we as Christians choose to go against what God has told us to do. During those times of disobedience God is longsuffering to us. At times we seem to think that if we can't see Him then we won't get caught, just the same as a child acts away from their parents. But God is all knowing and can see everywhere and everything. During those times of disobedience there will come a time where Gods longsuffering will come to an end and He will draw a line in the sand. He will show up when you're least expecting Him and place a stopping point. If you choose to step over the line that He has drawn then you've forced Him to remove the problem. Just as a disobedient child and a loving parent. The child will be warned to obey but there will come a time when the child disobeys to the point that the parent must intervene and remove the child's pleasures. If you're a child of a God and are living in disobedience, it's no surprise when He deals with you. God is raising children and He is trying to grow us into His likeness. If you're walking thru your Christian life and you know God is chastening you, count it a blessing because you're one of His. Gods patiences does and will run out. Don't push Him till His patiences runs out on you.|

|All Is Yours|
|1 Corinthians 3:21-23 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God has promised us a few things and His promises are true. God has called us out from amongst the world to be a different people. God is not limited by anything. He is the creator of ALL things and therefore controls it ALL! When God saves someone they are saved for eternity because that is one of His promises, He doesn't change His mind.
It matters how you live because others are learning by your walk. We should not worship "men" like pastors, priests or great leaders. Preachers are called of God and all have their own calling of how they teach and bring the word whether they are extraordinary or ordinary. The man of God should at all times preach Gods Word and nothing else and if He wavers should be confronted in love according to His word. God is the same God from the hills of Tennessee to Rome!
Not only is the men of God that preach His word are ours, but the world also. This means anything in this world can be used by Him to make us better and work us to His will. The devil will come to you and offer you the world for your love for him but Satan doesn't have that authority. Satan could offer you the keys to Fort Knox but that would be for your own benefit. God doesn't need the gold or all the cash in this world.
People worry too much about life because it's unknown. If we knew life then we would worry more because of the known end and struggles thru it. When one wakes up and realizes they have to go to work yet again, stop and thank God for being able to do so instead of complaining.
Death is also ours that is of Christ's. This is because He has defeated death and it has no hold on His children. The only thing that will happen at the end of our life is that God will take us by the hand and lead us to His Glory.
The present is also ours if we are Christ's. What do you really need from this world? God has complete control over it all and therefore is ours. This is Gods "Will" that He wrote for us all that are His because we are His children. Just like the present is ours, the future is also ours. We can not fathom what the future holds.
The reason that all of these things are simply answered because we are Christ's and He is Gods.
John 10:28-29 sums it all up in a very simple verse.
