THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY TO BE A REAL TEST OF RELIGION IS WHEN THE

STONES ARE FLYING

STAND STILL. HOW CAN I STAND STILL...

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

BREAKFAST... THE CHICKEN SAID I VOTE FOR BACON AND EGGS...

dedication vs commitment

THEY WERE NEVER CALLED THE ADULTS OF ISRAEL?

II. THIS IS A COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD...

IN A DIFFICULT SITUATION... STAND STILL?

SHUT UP... NOT FORWARD

NOT BACKWARDS...

NOT RIGHT... NOT LEFT...

of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye

shall see them again no more for ever.

III. LIE DOWN AND QUIT... GIVE UP... RETREAT... STIR YOURSELF?

IV. CALL TO RENEW STRENGTH... HEAR GOD...

concerning you.

V. THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY TO BE A REAL TEST OF RELIGION IS WHEN THE STONES

ARE FLYING

Joshua 3:8 And thou shalt command the priests that bear the ark of the covenant, saying, When ye

are come to the brink of the water of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan

VI. NOT EASY TO WAIT... LET'S DO SOMETHING

EXPRESS TOTAL CONFIDENCE...

.Psalm 27:14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say,

on the Lord.

VII. COMMIT...

Psalm 37:5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

A. COMMIT: To put another in charge, to TRUST, to pledge to do...

agreement to do, to assign yourself to a post of duty...

B. COMMIT COMES FROM HEBREW WORD: DOM

Be silent, be still,

CALMLY RESIGN,

LEAVE EVERYTHING TO GOD'S HANDS...

A SURE CURE FOR DISSATISFACTION...

VIII. CAN YOU HAVE REAL COMMITMENT WITHOUT TOTAL TRUST...

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment.

He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

A. GOD IS RAISING YOU UP... TO BUILD YOU...

B. IF GOD CAN'T WORK THROUGH YOU,

HE WILL WORK AROUND YOU...

IX. PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO COMMIT TO A CHURCH...

BUT WILL TO FOOTBALL, BASEBALL, A JOB, TO SELL AVON?

A. WE WILL COMMIT TO EASY STUFF:

Ronald McDonald: YOU DESERVE A BREAK TODAY...

Burger King: HAVE IT YOUR WAY!

B. Mrs Smith's pies: They will think you did the cooking.

C. LOTTERY MENTALITY:

WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE IT AND HAVE IT NOW...

X. MAKE A COMMITMENT AND IT WILL BE ADDED:

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these

things shall be added unto you.

COMMIT TO:

1. LOVE PEOPLE... PASSION, COMPASSION

2. COMMIT TO A DREAM/VISION

3. COMMIT TO DISCIPLESHIP/ TRAIN/ LEARN

4. COMMIT TO THE TEAM... IT IS ABOUT US NOT ME...

5. COMMIT TO DETERMINATION / NEVER QUIT / NEVER GIVE UP /

STICK TO IT...
