*#2 THEN GOD! THE ANSWER IS HIDDEN IN THE NEED!
YOUR PROBLEM WILL NOT CATCH GOD BY SURPRISE!
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
This is the second part of a two part lesson, I do this part in two parts.
I. NOTHING TAKES OUR MIGHTY GOD BY SURPRISE.
A. God is the Creator.
B. Today many of God’s creatures seem to like CREATURE OR PLEASURE
WORSHIP, but God’s creatures were made in God’s image to WORSHIP AND PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME.
C. We trust certain eternal truths.
One truth on which we stand is God has always been, and God will always be.
D. The Greek alphabet begins with ALPHA.
The Greek alphabet ends with Omega. God is there through it all.
Rev. 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Rev. 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
E. Our Father is reliable and trustworthy.
He is totally complete, he is the beginning and the end, and everything in the middle.
F. One day God will send His precious son and say: THAT IS ENOUGH.
We seek the second coming of our Lord and Savior.
Rev. 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
II. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU KNOW?
A. First thing you know O, Jed’s a millionaire,
Kin folk say, Jed move away from there.
Said, Califor-knee, is the place you ought to be,
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly,
Hills that is: swimming pools, movie stars ---
B. WHAT DO YOU KNOW?
Sometimes in the heat of the moment, we tend to forget WHAT WE KNOW?
Do you know there is a God and GOD HAS THIS UNDER CONTROL?
C. OUR GOD HAS A PLAN.
SOMETIMES WHAT SEEMS TO BE THE WORSE THING THAT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU IS NO MORE THAN A DIVINE PLAN TO ACCOMPLISH THE WORK OF GOD!
D. What may appear to be the worse thing that could happen, MAY BE THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO YOU!
E. MAYBE GOD HAD TO TAKE YOU HERE --- TO GET YOU THERE?
God has a way of turning bad situations and problems into GROWTH EVENTS and our faith grows from mustard seed size to ENOUGH TO SEE US THROUGH
and bring us from VICTORY to VICTORY!
III. THEN GOD!
WHAT IS THE LITTLE AMONG SO GREAT A NEED?
JESUS ALREADY KNEW WHAT HE WAS GOING TO DO!
JESUS JUST WANTED TO SEE WHAT KIND OF FAITH PHILIP HAD?
PHILIP HAD THE FAITH --- BUT THEY LET GO OF THE FAITH --- THEN GOD!
A. THERE IS MORE TO THE TEST THAN JUST REALIZING PEOPLE ARE HUNGRY!
