Broken jaws & shattered teeth

Psalm 3:5-8

5) I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me. 6) I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about. 7) Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. 8) Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

Psalm 58:6) Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O Lord.

Ill: Most of us are familiar with the children’s story of Little Red Riding Hood. But let me just re-cap it for everyone.

Little Red Riding Hood was a little girl who decided to pay her sick grandmother a visit.

But a big bad wolf gets there ahead of her, and gets rid of grandma so he can try and eat the little girl.

His plan is to trick Red Riding Hood by getting her close enough to pounce on her.

So he puts on grandma’s nightgown and cap and pretends to be the grandma.

Everything goes as planned, until Red Riding Hood makes a few astute observations. And the plan begins to unravel.

She looks at the wolf and says, "My, Grandma, what big eyes you have!" And the wolf answers, "All the better to see you with, my dear."

The she says, "My, Grandma, what big ears you have!" "All the better to hear you with, my dear!"

Then the girl says, "My, grandma, what big teeth you have!" At which the wolf replies, "All the better to eat you with, my dear," and lunges for Red Riding Hood. But Thankfully, the woodsman was there to her rescue her and kills the wolf.

Focus: I just wonder if there is anyone in the building today that has faced the wolf this week. Is there anyone that from an Easter Sunday until the next that has had an encounter with the big bad wolf ? if so then you are the ones that I've come to talk to today!!!!!

While the wolf, the lion, or any other figure may have attacked you this week David said when the host of enemies, even 10k I don’t have to worry, because you are for me and with one swipe of your hand you will break the jaw and knock out the teeth of those who oppose me,

point: somebody in this building today needs not to leave this place the way they came, you barely made this morning, its time for you to let the Lord fight your battles, he break the jaw and knock out the teeth of your adversary, he just needs you to get out of the way!!

Today’s message will be short for the Lord has sent me to encourage you and in doing so it’s going to require some action on your part..
