|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.

|Are You Waiting For An Answer?|
|James 1:5-7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God never said not to ask Him for anything. There are times when we don't understand things. God is not gonna say to you, that's a dumb question. God doesn't expect us to walk through life blinded. Go before God humbled and He will answer. They're times when we wont like the answer that's given. It's ok to question God but you better do it with honor and respect.|

|Who is Wise in God?|
|James 3:13-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We should be careful that it's not about pride. In order to be taught, you must be teachable. You must forget about what people have said and get back to the Word of God. The Word of God is what will judge and teach, not what our forefathers set forth or said. A lot of people excuse themselves by not opening the bible. We should study to prove ourselves. If you asked someone a legitimate question they will try to give you an honest answer. Sometimes it's days if not weeks before we will pick up our bibles. Just because you read it doesn't mean that you've studied it. The bible isn't a dead word so it never gets old, it's a living word. One can't retire from God. It thrills God to get you smart in the Word. Sunday school is a must because we study the scripture. You need Jesus Christ as a tutor in your life daily. You can identify a wise man by his words. Conversation of God will make you a wise person. Just like their conversation, their works should back it up. If you can't walk it, don't talk it. If your works don't match your words then your neighbor will see a hypocrite. Where is righteousness found? The bible. Good conversation and good works will usually bring forth pride. Pride comes before a fall. Your good words from God and your good works from God will bring forth wisdom as long as you keep it in your heart and not your mind. A wise person is full of love and what is love? Jesus. If you're holding envy and strife in your heart then you are of the world and not of God. A Godly wisdom is pure, peaceable, gentle, easy to be persuaded by Gods Word, full of mercy and good works, without suspicion and is without hypocrisy. James 1:5 If you want wisdom, ask God for it without doubt and it will be given.|

|Is God the Friend of Sinners?|
|Luke 7:31-35 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Some take it for granted that you will have another chance to get saved. In order to be saved you must first be convicted of your sin. Do you believe that God is a friend of sinners? God will judge of sin. There is a place that was created that has the opposite of joy and peace where God will not be. It was not created for you but for Satan and his angels. If you deny Jesus Christ you will surely be in the horrible place called Hell. Just because you attend a church or are a member of one doesn't mean that you are born again. Being born again is not about who you're kin to or what someone says. Salvation can not be manufactured under your own will. It doesn't matter where you've been or what you've done, you can still be born again. Some treat salvation as something that you can pick up and lay down only when you need it. Today is the day of salvation. When the Spirit of God moves, that is the time to be born again because only God controls conviction. Repeating a prayer doesn't save a person if the conviction of sin is not there with the drawing from Jesus Christ. One can't save ones self. Just because you read the bible or have a family that attends church or just because you've been baptized doesn't mean that you've been born again. You can't go through your life denying God and then claim Him in the end of your life. God gave us all the ability to make a choice. When God calls you, you WILL know and when He calls, that is the only time, chance that you will have to accept His calling. He only promised to call you one time. Conviction is Devine. When you really get under conviction you won't care what's around you if you really want to be saved.|
