DO YOU INQUIRE?


inquire

THE HOLY SPIRIT TOLD ME THE OTHER DAY THAT I DO NOT INQUIRE OF THE LORD ENOUGH!

It is easy to rely upon our flesh and our worldly wisdom.

When you are young you think you know more than you do, and when you are mature it is easy to rely upon the earthly wisdom you have acquired through experience.

BUT

WHEN WE LEARN THAT JESUS KNOWS OUR END FROM OUR BEGINNING IT HELPS US UNDERSTAND THAT OUR WISDOM OR KNOWLEDGE IS SO MINIMAL.

David the King of Israel inquired of the Lord 9 times that are recorded.  This showed his dependance on his King and the relationship that he had with his God.  When he did not inquire he met defeat, especially personally.

1 Sam. 23:1-3, Therefore David inquired of the LORD….

1 Sam. 23:4-5, Then David inquired of the Lord once again….

1 Sam. 23:10-11, The David said, “I Lord God of Israel…”

9 times David inquired of the Lord!!!

HOW OFTEN DO WE INQUIRE OF THE LORD IN OUR EVERYDAY LIFE?

DO WE JUST CHAT WITH JESUS WHEN HELL IS LICKING OUR TOES, or do we have a relationship with Him to the extent that we inquire for His direction?

I CHALLENGE YOU TODAY TO INQUIRE OF THE LORD ALL DAY AND ABOUT EVERYTHING AND WATCH HIM ANSWER YOU LIKE HE DID DAVID!

RESPOND….


respond-to-god

WHEN YOU SEND A TEXT MESSAGE AND YOU KNOW THEY HAVE READ IT BUT THEY NEVER RESPOND………I hate that!!!

You know what I am talking about!

You call someone and leave a voice message and you know they listened to it but they never respond….HOW RUDE!

James 1:22-24, Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like. MSG

WHEN JESUS SPEAKS TO US THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT WE HAVE TO RESPOND TO HIM.

Many ignore the Word, ignore conviction, ignore the prompting, ignore the direction of the Holy Spirit – WE SEE THE MESSAGE AND CHOOSE TO IGNORE IT!

GOD IS A GOD OF RESPONSE!

We want Him to respond to us when we pray, BUT we do not want to respond to Him so we ignore Him.

THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RELIGION AND RELATIONSHIP.

When you are religious then ignoring and not responding to Jesus is not big deal.

When you are in a relationship with Jesus your response shows love and communication.

ARE YOU RELIGIOUS OR DO YOU HAVE A GROWING RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS?

Learn to respond quickly to the Holy Spirit and watch your relationship explode.

FINANCIAL TROUBLE….Pt. 2


financial-problems

TITHING?

The only thing the church wants is your money!

The truth is that only about 9% of all Christians in America tithe.

God is the one who designed the giving process all the way back to Abraham.

Abraham gave for honor and obedience declaring that God is His source.

TITHING IS ALL ABOUT HONOR, OBEDIENCE, AND RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

When we start talking about tithing most preachers use Mal. 3:8 as a scare tactic to get people to give.

I want to show you today that TITHING is about RELATIONSHIP & HONOR and not fear.

Mal. 3:7-8, Yet from the days of your fathers You have gone away from My ordinances And have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” Says the Lord of hosts. “But you said, ‘In what way shall we return?’

8 Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.

WHAT IS GOD’S HEART?

DOES HE NEED YOUR MONEY?

HE SAYS IT VERY CLEAR IN VERSE 7 – THIS IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIP AND OBEDIENCE!

“Return to me and I will return to you”

What do you mean Jesus?

WHEN WE DO NOT TITHE WE ARE NOT OBEYING GOD AND HAVE CREATED A BREACH IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

Everything about God and man is about relationship not fear.  God does not NEED your money!

Tithing is about you and I declaring out of obedience that Jesus is our source, not a man, no a job, not a company.

TODAY IF YOU DO NOT TITHE THEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS IS SUFFERING.

1 Sam 15:22, But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.

IF YOU DO NOT TITHE, THEN REPENT BEFORE THE LORD FOR YOUR DISOBEDIENCE AND BEGIN THIS SUNDAY TO TITHE TO THE STOREHOUSE YOU ARE FED AT SPIRITUALLY.

The way to BREAK financial SUFFERING is to OBEY God and watch HIM BLESS YOU!

JESUS LOVES YOU SO MUCH!


jesus-loves-you

Sometimes the simplest things are the easiest to forget or overlook. There is only one reason why Father God does anything……LOVE

1 John 4:9-10, In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
John 3:16, For God so LOVED the world……

From the Garden, to today, the passion of our Father, our Daddy, is YOU!

You are the reason He created the heavens and earth
You are the reason that He sent His Son to die
You are the reason that there is a Church

YOU ARE THE MOTIVATION, HE LOVES YOU!!

FATHER LOVES HIS BABIES

You maybe have seen, or experienced when one of your children have made poor decisions, and you strive to grab them, to protect them, to correct them, but they REJECT you. Your heart sinks, no matter how big a man or woman, when your own babies reject your love, it strikes deep.

Yet, you cannot give up!

You love them even in their foolishness, praying they will come around.
Your heart is crushed, yet you cannot give up hope.
You continue to reach out, even though they constantly repel you as if you have only caused them harm.

THERE IS A DESPERATION, AND YOU WILL DO WHATEVER NEEDS TO BE DONE TO RESTORE THAT RELATIONSHIP!

John 15:13, Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

There is no one that LOVES you more than the Father.
His love is UNCONDITIONAL!

He cannot love you any more today than after you have been saved for 50 years. He loves you just as much as he loves the drug-addicted pimp. He loves us no matter what.

He not only loves us, He never gives up on us!

The GOD of RESULTS!


results

GOD IS A GOD OF RESULTS NOT GOOD INTENTIONS!

God has set a precedence of results.

They are expected, not just longed for……

John 15:2, Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.

Jesus said that every branch that is in Him will bare fruit, and if it does not that it will be cut off and burned.

Jesus said that every branch that produces fruit He will prune so it will produce MORE FRUIT.

God is a God of results and production, not pacification and permissiveness.

WHY HAS JESUS NOT RETURNED YET FOR THE SAINTS IN THE RAPTURE?

2 Pet. 3:9, The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.

WHEN THE RESULTS OF SALVATIONS HAVE COME TO THE CLIMAX OF RESULTS THEN THE FATHER WILL TELL THE ANGEL TO BLOW THE TRUMPET.

God is a God of RESULTS!

HIS WAYS OR HIS ACTS….


acts

There is a powerful question we have to ask ourselves when it comes to our relationship with Jesus.

DO WE KNOW HIS WAYS, OR DO WE JUST SEE HIS ACTS?

Ps. 103:7, He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.

GOD IS PASSIONATE TO REVEAL HIS WAYS TO YOU AND I – THAT IS CALLED RELATIONSHIP.

John 15:15, No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.

Moses had a relationship with God and he was called God’s friend.

Ex. 33:11a, The LORD would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend.

GOD WANTS A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU!!

The children of Israel were in the presence of God, but they did not know His ways, they only watched His works.

SO MANY BELIEVERS ONLY KNOW WHAT HE DOES BUT ARE SO DISTANT TO KNOW THE CHARACTER OF THE LOVING JESUS.

I challenge you today to talk to Jesus like Moses did – face to face and as a friend.

KNOW GOD AND NOT JUST WHAT GOD DOES!

The Father desires to reveal Himself to you.  This is why He sent Jesus to die on the cross.

Father so wants to have a relationship with you.

YOU MUST SPEND TIME WITH HIM TO GET TO KNOW HIM.

MAKE THE TIME TO KNOW GOD, NOT JUST HIS ACTS!

DOUBLE ASSIGNMENT!


Assignment

TODAY IS A DAY YOU HAVE NEVER HAD BEFORE!

These next 16.5 hours have already been planned by Jesus for your life.  He already has people placed for your life to touch and influence for Himself.

YOU ARE SO IMPORTANT TODAY – DO NOT BE DISTRACTED FROM TODAY’S DESTINY!

The first assignment that is on the docket is called FIRST MINISTRY.

What is first ministry?

That is honoring God and your relationship with Him.  First ministry is placing Him first and then spending time worshipping and listening to Him for His direction for the day.

Prov. 3:5-6, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

MINISTER TO JESUS BY GIVING HIM ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND HONOR!

Ps. 150:6, Let everything that has breath praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!

SPEND TIME WITH JESUS PRAISING HIM AND HONORING HIM WITH YOUR HEART AND LIPS = 1st ministry

The second assignment that is on the docket for your life today is SHARING THE GOSPEL.

“Pastor, my gift is singing, praying, children, preaching…….”

YES, THEY MIGHT BE YOUR GIFTS THAT ADD TO THE KINGDOM WORK, BUT EVERY SINGLE BELIEVER HAS BEEN COMMISSIONED (even preachers) WITH THE SAME CALL!

Mark 16:15, And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.

WE ARE CALLED TO PLANT, WATER, AND BRING IN THE HARVEST FOR THE KINGDOM.

I will say this and simply get people mad……..IF YOU ARE NOT LEADING AT LEAST 1 SOUL TO JESUS A YEAR….THEN YOU DO NOT HAVE THE HEART OF GOD!

That is a bold statement.  How can I be that bold?

IF YOU ARE SPENDING TIME IN 1ST MINISTRY, THEN YOU WILL GET THE HEART OF THE FATHER WHICH IS SOULS!

If you are not soul driven…..then what are you?

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU LED TO JESUS SO FAR PERSONALLY IN 2016?  HOW MANY OF THEM ARE YOU DISCIPLING?

I CAN LIVE ANY WAY I WANT…..


ScandalousFreedom

If ye love mekeep my commandments” John 14:15

Romans 6:1-2, Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? 2 Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it?

SINNING FREELY

Today’s Christian sins freely without the understanding of the true meaning of love.  Love is NOT JUST – it is multifaceted.  When you look at a diamond shimmering in the sunlight, you are seeing the one diamond, but the facets are what are reflecting the wholeness.  It is the multiplicity of facets that make the totality.  God’s love is the whole, but within the love is justice and discipline.  Without them the diamond would have one whole side missing.

A facet of love is justice – discipline / Heb. 12:10-11, For our earthly fathers disciplined us for a few years, doing the best they knew how. But God’s discipline is always good for us, so that we might share in his holiness. 11 No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.

Because God’s love is unconditional, does it mean we can live our sinful life, and He has to forgive us?

Do not be confused with His unconditional love that never ceases. With the justice of God, they are on the same diamond of whole love.

Gal. 6:7-8, Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.

Have you ever been around someone who takes advantage of people?

They get as much out of them as possible.

They use the people around them for what they can get out of the them.

They abuse them because the other person is generous.

Is that a true relationship?

We do not sin because we cannot – we do not sin because we do not want to hurt the One we love the most!

IF, IF, IF you love MEkeep my commandments.

I FEEL SO ALONE


loneliness Bible

WE HAVE ALL EXPERIENCED THAT “ALONE” EMOTION AND IT CAN BE VERY OVERWHELMING.

Today I want to give you a different perspective on that emotion.

I remember when I was a youth pastor in Penn. many years ago (28 years ago….ahhhhhh) my apartment was about 20 miles from the church.  My apartment was on the second floor and there were only two windows.  There was a window in the bedroom and on the opposite side of the apartment there was a window in the kitchen.  In the middle was my living room where I had a brown sectional couch and a television (I had a TV but no cable so it was never turned on).  I came home from the church one day and sat on my couch and felt sooooo alone.  It was like waves of sadness and the sense that nobody was there.  It was intense for a little bit and then the Holy Spirit spoke to me and told me to turn that alone sensation into a driving passion for more of Jesus.  Instead of allowing myself to be consumed by that emotion I turned it around and every single time I felt that come on me I would spend MORE time with JESUS!  After a bit of time that aloneness became one of my greatest blessings.  My relationship with Christ exploded!  My time with Jesus increased and I realized that His Word is true and that we are never alone!

Deut. 31:6, So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.

Heb 13:5b, for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” AMP

Matt 28:20b, and lo, I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.”  AMP

TURN THAT FEELING OF ALONENESS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE AND SPEND SO MUCH TIME WITH JESUS THAT IT IS NOT A BAD FEELING BUT A FEELING THAT ENHANCES YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST.

YOU ARE NEVER ALONE!!!!!

EVALUATING RELATIONSHIPS


healthy_relationships

WE ALL HAVE PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES THAT TAKE OUR TIME, FOCUS, AND INFLUENCE IN SOME DIMENSION.

A great challenge is when we re-evaluate those relationships to make sure that they are productive.

I AM NOT SAYING KICKING PEOPLE OUT OF YOUR LIFE (although some of us need to do that with some people), BUT I AM SAYING THAT WE NEED TO ASK OURSELVES IF THEY ARE ADDING ANYTHING TO OUR LIVES.

There are relationships where the other person has all the benefits from the friendship.

There are relationships where there is no communication unless they need something from you.

There are relationships where the other person only seems to draw you back to sin.

There are relationships where it it mutual – these are healthy!

Give and take – share and listen – encourage and correct.

HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS MUST BE MUTUAL, NOT A ONE WAY STREET.

Recently I have been evaluating my ministry relationships and realizing that some that I have had for years do not add to my life (they are not bad, they just add nothing).

OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS MUST BE THE SAME THING.  WE CANNOT TAKE ALL THE BENEFITS FROM HIM (salvation, peace, joy, power, blessing…..) AND NOT GIVE ANYTHING BACK.  NOT A TRADE OFF….. I MEAN RELATIONSHIP!

Jesus is waiting for you to not only bless you but to have a relationship with you.

THIS IS WHY HE CAME!

What relationships in your life are not mutual?

What relationships take but never replenish?

DO WE HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS THAT IS MUTUAL OR IS HE THE ONLY ONE GIVING?

Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 18:24 “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
