When You Don’t Know What To Do (2 Kings 4:1-7)
There are four realities that we face when we don’t know what to do
(from 2 Kings 4:1-7):
1. We all face times of desperate need (vs 1).
2. God needs only what we have (vs 2-4).
3. God does what we cannot do (vs 5-7).
4. God fills only what we offer (vs. 5-7).
"No one who hopes in you [God] will ever be put to shame (Psa. 25:3).
The Dr Who Never Lost a Case
Jesus was the Great Physician, the Doctor who never lost a case. He brought the prescription for the sin sick soul. [Inspired by Marshall Keeble's sermon "The Dr Who Never Lost a Case]
Changing My Attitude from Covetousness to Contentment
Covetousness blocks the flow of God's goodness in our life. But Paul told Timothy, "godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content” (I Tim. 6:6-8).
Replacing Complaining with Thankfulness
People who constantly complain will spend a lifetime in the wilderness. Thankfulness, like complaining, is a voluntary decision that we can make.
Lord, Change My Attitude of Complaining
Complaining can be defined as expressing dissatisfaction with a circumstance that is not wrong and about which I’m doing nothing to correct. Does that describe you? This is the first in a series of lessons on attitudes. The next lesson will focus on replacing our complaining with thankfulness. [Based on "Lord, Change My Attitude, Before It's Too Late. By James MacDonald].
The Promise is to You
Without the birth of Christ, He could not have come into the world to live a sinless life. Without His perfect life, He could not have become the perfect sacrifice for all of mankind. Without His sacrifice, we would all be lost. See Acts 2:39.
