"Discovering God's Direction"
Scott Kierstead - 6.5.11 - Proverbs 3:5-6
1. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart.
-Some of us feel that we cannot trust the lord. A seed of doubt, if you will.
-Acts 16:30-31 - there are a lot of time you can't see stuff to believe in
(ex. Gravity and wind)
You can't SEE the holy spirit but you you need to have faith that He is real.
-Salvation IS by faith (Romans 5:1)
-Through GRACE Eph 2:9
-God wants to give you direction in life but it requires trust in Him.
2. Lean not on your own understanding.
-God is not a crutch that we simply lean on, but our total strength!
-Our understanding is limited to our intelligence or experience
-Isaiah 55:8-9 - Gods understanding is limitless
3. In all thy ways acknowledge Him.
-To acknowledge God in all things is to fully surrender to Him.
-Acknowledge Jesus everywhere you are. Do we or do we love a lie?
-Are you the same way with the people at church as you are with people out
in the world?
-God does not promise us a lavish easy life. Don't believe that lie.
- just know there is something BETTER in Jesus Christ!
Have you learned to trust in Jesus and give your life to Him?
Or is that the place you need to be? ..belief in a loving God who sent His son to die so you may live.
