Psalm 139

God has perfect knowledge of man! No wonder, He created man in His own image and likeness. Humanity spends their lives seeking things to replace God and never are they satisfied. 

Finding a place to hide from the One who knows the very depths of the soul and understands every thought. God is everywhere, even to the deepest of the seas and also the heavens and to the depths of darkness.

Psalm 61:1-4

When times appear to be overwhelming and exhausting, then that is the time to rise in prayer and cry out to the Lord. He will hear you and take you to the place that is higher than yourself. An area of shelter and protection where no one can interrupt you nor bruise your hopes and heart.

Text: Exodus 14:15-18

  1. Be Courageous
  2. Have Faith
  3. Go Forward

 

The law of the Christian church is to advance.

Fear and faith cannot dwell in the same heart; if we trust God, we need not be afraid.

God never brings his Church or people into positions from which retreat is necessary, or in which advance is impossible.

Text: Luke 1:46-55

  1. Faith opens our lips in praise to God, while unbelief silences us (2 Cor. 4:13).
  2. Mary is blessed with women but not above women.
  3. Mary yielded herself to the Holy Spirit (Rom. 12:1) knowing full well that she would experience shame and misunderstanding

We see that in these scriptures that there is a designed path to following God’s will for our lives.

Text: Matthew 17:14-21

We should pay close attention to this statement of faith that the Lord, Jesus Christ, is making here! 

Fearful vs. Faithful

Fear causes spiritual blindness; power to build mountains, unfaithfulness; weakness in following the commands of God.

Faith causes miracles; dreams answered; hope complete; overcoming difficult circumstances.

Psalm 121:1-8

In the time of trouble, one seeks to find promise, protection, and prosperity. To be consoled and comforted. Brought to that place where the help is lasting and foundational. 

Recognizing and reacting to the Lord and His deep concern for His children and creation. His deep love and compassion, which surrounds us with righteousness and grace. To Him we give glory, and it is Him we seek in these times.

There is an ascent in prayer and praise that will always draw you near to Him. That nearness cannot be explained in words or deeds but only by faith and trust in an Everlasting Father.

Text Isaiah 37:2-4

Are you tired? Weary from the labors of ministry? Exhausted from life's interactions. Have you become apathetic and impatient as you wait on the Lord answer to your delicate prayers and requests? 

How often do you sit and ponder the day when the Lord seeded you with a promise? You are ready to give birth to this surety of ministry and Kingdom design He has delivered into you! But you are weary, worn out, have no more strength to push one more step closer.

Do not give up! His promises are real, dynamic, and personal to each one. Do not let anyone intimidate you or speak negatively of you! His shield is about you, and you are about to give birth to His commitment in your life because you are highly favored of the Lord.

Psalm 63:1

David wrote this psalm while in the wilderness. The wilderness was a barren, desolate place where he was deprived of the comforts of home and exposed to bad weather and hostile enemies.

These things were in and of themselves enough to make the wilderness a very troubling and trying experience. David found it to be even more so for another reason. While in the wilderness he was away from the sanctuary of the Lord.

The question is not whether we, as God’s people, will have to go through wilderness experiences, but rather how to face them. It is at this point that David’s psalm offers tremendous help.

Text: 2 Corinthians 1:20

When the Lord speaks a promise He is able to complete it! The contributing factor to a lack of faith and an embracing of fear is the lack of trust in God Himself! Looking at what you see instead of what you have been promised!
