Thriving in Babylon- Week 3- Living For God When Prays Go Unanswered
These are confusing times for many Christians. Traditional biblical values are not only rejected; it seems as if they're attacked on every front. It's all happened at warp speed, leaving many of us spiritually and culturally disoriented or even fearful, frustrated, and angry. How can we spiritually survive in an increasingly spiritually hostile environment? And is there any hope for the next generation? In this 8-session sermon-based series, based on the book by Larry Osborne, we will be introduced to a man forced to live in a fast-changing and godless society. This man faced fears about the future, concern for his safety, and the discouragement of a world that seemed to be falling apart at warp speed. That man was Daniel, and with the power of hope, humility, and wisdom, he not only survived, but thrived. Thriving in Babylon challenges us to hope in God and strive to live in a unique way, even compared to other religious people. In what appears to be an increasingly godless society, we are called to live as people of hope, humility, and wisdom. Though Daniel lived thousands of years ago, he has much to teach us today.

How do we trust God when he seems to have failed us?
Unanswered prayers aren’t the end of the line.
Hope for when God seems too late:
1) God’s delays are not necessarily God’s denials!
God often comes through in unexpected ways at unexpected times.
Often God wants to do something in you before he does something for you.
“By this time, his body had a bad odor.”
- John 11:39b
Hope for when God seems too late:
2) If God always met your expectations, he’d never have the opportunity to exceed them!
“The dead man came out!”
- John 11:44a
Mary and Martha had been praying for a healing, but what God brought was a resurrection!
What they wanted was freedom from sickness, but Jesus wanted to show that he had power over death.
They wanted something good, but Jesus brought them something incredible!
If God always did what you expected, He'd never have the opportunity to exceed your expectations.
The scene of your greatest disappointment may be the setting of your greatest miracle.
