“Not My Will…” 3. Discovering God's Will for My Life

Have you ever wished you could have lunch with Jesus? Suppose you got a phone call from heaven saying that the Lord Jesus Christ would like to meet you for lunch? What would you talk to Jesus about? I hope your first impulse would be to fall on your face at his feet and worship him. But suppose he said, “Rise, my child. Let’s share a meal together.” What would you say then? Most of us - “Lord Jesus, I love you and more than anything else, I want to please you. Lord. Am I doing what you want me to do? Is there anything else you want to me to do because if there is, if you want to change my direction, please let me know.” All of us have moments when we want to hear God’s voice or receive some

“Not My Will…” – 2. Sense and Nonsense Aboout God's Will

"What Happened, Lord?” Common question - You set out to get a new job, you work hard, you go through the interview process, you do your best, in your heart you believe this is the job God wants you to have. Then someone else gets the job. You say, “Lord, I thought I was doing Your will.” Perhaps you get the job, and you say, “Thank You, Lord.” But 6 months later you’re fired and you say, “What happened, Lord?” You think, “If only we could move to Durban, we would be happy.” So you move to Durban, believing it to be the will of God. When you get there, you still are not happy - “Lord, did we make a mistake?” We know God has a plan for us. We know that we weren’t put on the earth to grope thro

“Not My Will…” – 1. When You Need to Know, You'll Know

Proverbs 3: 5, 6 This text is striking in its simplicity. There is nothing difficult about it. It is so simple that it can be understood by the youngest believer, and yet it is a comfort to the oldest saint of God. It is good for everyone in between. These words cling to the soul because they speak to a great need we all feel – the need for guidance. They provide the basis on which guidance will come. It is a short course in knowing God’s will for your life. 1. Five Key Words Sometimes when we know a passage so well, we almost know it too well. We have heard it so often that we have never stopped to think about what it is really saying. Let’s take the key words one by one and see what each o

Mothers Day 2010 - Families of Faith

Genesis 25: 21; Exodus 2: 1 - 2; 1 Samuel 1: 10 – 11 The young preacher was shocked to hear the well-known preacher utter the words, "I have spent some of the happiest moments of my life in the arms of another man’s wife. Yes, I have spent some of the happiest moments of my life in the arms of another man’s wife." Then, following a pause, the preacher added, "That woman was my mother." "I’ve got to use that!" the young pastor thought to himself. A few weeks later, as he was speaking to a civic group, the phrase leapt into his mind and he exclaimed, "I have spent some of the happiest days of my life in the arms of another man’s wife." Then, after another long pause, the young man muttered mee

Absolute Praise – 3. If God Is Sovereign, What Then?

Psalm 103: 19 - 22 “The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.” There are as many reasons not to believe this verse as there are to believe it. This verse teaches a doctrine that many find troublesome-the doctrine of the sovereignty of God. The term “sovereign” refers to a king or a ruler. To be sovereign is to have authority in a particular realm. Sovereignty is the rule a king establishes in his realm. God is sovereign over the universe -he rules all things. His throne is settled and established. It cannot be shaken by the affairs of men. His kingdom rules over all. In the abstract, we have no problem with this doctrine. It is not hard for us to believe
