|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.|

|Loved By The Shepherd|
|Psalm 23:1-6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God doesn't give you everything that you just want. However God will grant you the things that you need. Every living thing God cares for and they never have to worry about anything but God loves us more that those things. Man wasn't meant to work 7 days a week. We are to rest at least one day. God understand the importance of spiritual rest. If you follow God He will give you the rest that you need. He will provide the spiritual rest. God knows exactly what you need and will lead you in the right path if only you follow Him. We must obey him. No matter where we go God will always be there even in death. The rod and staff where one of the same. The rod is used to pull you back, to rescue. The staff is used in chastening to teach and to show love. Your enemies have no power over you. The obvious is the devil but think about your flesh. Our flesh is the worst enemy that we have.|

|Stopping The Voices|
|Psalm 40:1-4 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|David endured physical afflictions and he often prayed about them. Also, he prayed for his enemies. Just as he, discouragement affects us all and it all begins in our minds.
God can hear you as long as you have repented and hold no inequity in our hearts. If God granted every prayer we asked Him instantly then He would surely be our spare tire. But God makes us wait thru patience.
Our mind is liken to a horrible pit full of never ending noise. We can not stop it no matter what we do and try. Always thinking, always listening, always wondering and doubting. The miry clay being depression that our mind will usually begin to think about if we don't put our minds at ease thru Christ. People today are screaming to be rescued from their own minds.
The clearest your mind will ever be is when you allow God to work in your mind. Prayer can bring clarity and remove the doubt in our minds. Not only will God clear your mind and ease it but He will also place you on something solid that you DO know.
How many have things are rolling around in your mind that you can't get rid of? A grudge against someone? Worried about a sickness? Stressed about a lived one?
For a child of God we are not a victim but a victor! We choose everyday which one you want to be.

|James 4:6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Grace is only given to the humble. Pride will lead you to hell. Have you ever thought about what grace is? A perfect story of grace is the story of the prodigal son. A father gave his son a lot of money but the son wasted on frivolous things. The son finally came to his senses while eating the hogs slop. The sons plan was to ask for forgiveness and to be a simple servant for being disobedient. But the father had other plans for his son. The father had grace, shown grace and gave grace. Not only was the father happy his son returned but gave him the best he had, the family ring, a rob and the best calf for a prepared feast. Just as this father did for his son, Jesus Christ has done the same to each of us. He stands calling for his child to come home. With outstretched arms, begging for His children to return. But His children sit and wallow in the worlds slop and in their own pride.|

|Prone To Roam|
|(Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We are all like sheep wondering away from the Shepherd. The Shepherd doesn't leave the sheep, the sheep stray from the Shepherd. But keep in mind, we are not alone as other sheep stray as well. A lot of times we don't realize that we have wondered. We are walking and feeding and don't look up to make sure we haven't strayed from the Shepherd. Once we go astray we should listen for the shepherd's voice. Like sheep we have no self defense without the shepherd's protection. The Shepherd will leave the safe guarded flock to hunt for the wondering one. Do you want a pasture to eat in? Do you want protection? Do you want joy?|
