Sermon Illustrations


If I were God….How many times have you heard people say that? “If I were God I would have everyone love everyone else, eliminate war, eliminate poverty and win the lottery.” Yeh, that’s just what we need, some thirty five year old running the universe.

Have you ever thought that? Have you ever thought that you had a better plan for your life? I sure have, more times than I can count. Now, do I think I have a better plan when I am at the beach or when I am on vacation in Disneyland? Do I think that when I am holding my newborn child or when I am kissing my bride at our wedding? Are you kidding? Of course not. I always think I have a better plan for my life when times are hard, when times are painful, and when times look bleak.
