INFANTILE NARCISSISM...AM I IN A VICE-GRIP...

MATURITY MASTERS EMOTIONS... DOES THIS CONTROL ME OR DO I CONTROL IT...

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

I. HAVE YOU EVER REALLY IDENTIFIED THE LIGHTNING RODS THAT MOCK YOU AND

YOUR FAMILIES?

FEW SEEK THE REVELATION OF CORRECTABLE SPIRITUAL PROBLEMS...

GREEN-REDDISH STREAKS... EXTERNAL REVELATIONS OF AN INTERNAL PROBLEM...

THE BATTLE GROUND OF THE SPIRIT PERSON FLOWS FROM WITHIN TO WITHOUT...

A. DAVID UNDERSTOOD SEVERAL DEEPER ISSUES OF GOD THHHAT FEW LEARN...

1. External issues reveal internal problems.

2. You will not CORRECT what you can not see as wrong...

3. Sin can be CONTAGEOUS and sin FEEDS MORE SIN...

4. DOING WRONG IS ADDICTIVE AND CAN NEVER BE CORRECTED UNTIL

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE, ADMIT, CONFESS, AND CORRECT...

B. David left the Holy Spirit of God a STANDING INVITATION:

CORRECT ME GOD... TEACH ME, LEAD ME...

Psalm 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

C. FEW TRAVEL TO THE HIDDEN SPIRITUAL AREAS OF THE SPIRIT PERSON...

DANGER AREAS LURK AROUND DARK CORNERS AND CAN BE HIDDEN IN SOME

BIG GARBAGE CANS... FACE THE GIANT, MY FRIEND

1 Corinthians 9:27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any

means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

D. WE MUST INVITE HEALTHY ACCOUNTABLITIY AND SPRITUAL CHASTEMENT AND

DISCIPLINE... OR BECOME A CAST-AWAY?

E. SPIRITUAL PROBLEMS AND BAD ATTITUDES ARE SELF-FEEDING CANCERS,

WE NEED DIVINE REVELATIONS TO KNOW THE HEART OF GOD...

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

F. SIN AND UNHEALTHY SITUATIONS GREW IN ISRAEL'S HOMES,

THESE WERE OFTEN HIDDENED...

WE NEED AN EXTERNAL SIGN TO REVEAL THE INTERNAL PROBLEM...

Leviticus 13:49 And if the plague be greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the skin, either in

the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin; it is a plague of leprosy, and shall be shewed

unto the priest:

G. GREEN/RED STREAKS REVEALED A UNHEALTHY PROBLEM...

THEN THE PEOPLE COULD CORRECT THE PROBLEM...

Leviticus 14:37 And he shall look on the plague, and, behold, if the plague be in the walls of

the house with hollow strakes, greenish or reddish, which in sight are lower than the wall;

II. HOLY SPIRIT REVEAL AND CONVICT PEOPLE OF SIN AND THE WEIGHTS THAT

HINDER US.

CAN YOU TAKE LIFE AS AN ADULT? OR DO YOU LIVE IN PERPETUAL BABYHOOD...

HAVE WE FOCUSED OUR EFFORTS AND ATTENTIONS TO MASTER OUR

EMOTIONS? IN THE MOST RECENT CALENDAR OF TIME HAVE WE SPENT

TIME AND EFFORT TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS TO MATURE AND MASTER YOUR

EMOTIONS... MENTAL, PHYSICAL, SPIRITUAL AND FAMILY EMOTIONAL

BEHAVIOR?
