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

The Call To Prayer; Brush Your Teeth
Jeremiah 33:1-3 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Often times we are better prayers when trouble comes around. Why does God have to command us to pray? Because left to our own demise we would never talk to Him. If we’re honest we would admit that if God didn’t command us to pray then we wouldn’t. Have you ever forgotten to eat, sleep, go to work, bathe, brush your teeth? However, how many of us have given that excuse when it comes to prayer, “I forgot to pray”. So why does He command us, because we would surely forget. There are never an excuse when it comes to talking/praying to God. Do you realize that we entertain ourselves instead of praying to God? What if God removed the things that kept us from praying? How many times a day does the flesh win over prayer? Do we honestly think that God has no idea what our lives consist of? He knows we have jobs, families, etc, but do no be deceived, He also knows when we make an excuse to not pray. Remember when our parents constantly told us to brush our teeth? Hopefully at some point it became a habit, a lifestyle. Just the same should prayer become in our lives for the rest of our lives. It’s not up to leaders within the church to be the only ones that pray. When you’ve been a command what are we to do? Obey! When we live a life without prayer we are living in a mess. Have you ever prayed and felt as if God didn’t answer you? This is because you’re living in sin. Three points of why prayers didn’t go anywhere. The first thing is sin. The only thing God is listening for if you’re living in sin is, “forgive me God”. He will not bless over disobedience. The second reason is that it’s not His will. When we pray and ask things that are not within His will then God will not answer us. Just because we want something doesn’t mean that we get it. The third is unbelief. We should pray and believe that He is God. If we doubt that He can’t do it or is not God over all then He will not hear from us. There should be times in our life when it because intimate between us and God. Nothing else during that time should matter.

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.

Through The Eyes Of A Blind Man
John 9:1-41 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
There are many that find that the only way to Heaven is Jesus. Many of cults and religions find it offensive that there is but only one way. Now the story of the blind man has several points but we will focus on just two. The church didn't know this blind man that lived in their own community. The first thing they did was to challenge who Jesus was saying the He wasn't of God. Jesus Christ was God incarnate. There are religions out there today that claim that Jesus was just a man as you and I. The second statement was that Jesus Christ was a sinner because He did this act on a sabbath day. The blind man could see who Jesus Christ is but the church could not. The blind man asked the church to prove themselves in Moses' law where a person received their sight. There was only one person that could heal a person that was born blind and that was Jesus Christ, God. There is only one prayer that God will hear from a sinner and is the prayer of forgiveness of their sins to be saved. A lot of sinners pray but they waste their time and breath because God will not hear them because they are not His. Christ was sinless and on the cross He took upon all the sins of the world become a sacrifice for us all that would be live in on Him.

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.
