Center of Gods Will
Thursday, May 02, 2002
1. Just in case you did not understand where I stand today, it is very important we understand where is the center of god’s will for our lives.
2. Lets study about the word center and determine what is meant by cent er
Webster Dictionary says: Center is a place or point at which activity is concentrated or toward which people seem to converge to a center of interest.
3. Wow , when we find the center of gods will We will find a place where the activity is concentrated along with a place where people converge because of interest.
4. Do you suppose when we find the center of gods will and stand in that place
q We will see others gathering to find out what is different and of interest?
q Will there really be plenty of activity?
5. You had better believe that it will be very active and many people will come interested in what you have found. Let’s go a little further.
Looking at the center OF THE EARTH we find in the earth molten lava.
What is molten lava? It is the elements of this world melted together and in a liquid form , nothing can be seen because it is a liquid substance called lava or ash and in time earth or dirt again.
It is very hot, it overcomes everything it touches it is very consuming and it is still dirt. We cannot get away from that dirt can we? It is everywhere.
Deu 4:24 For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
Deu 9:3 Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee.
Heb 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
IN THE CENTER OF GODS WILL: Many seeking, melted down , dirt.
Ge 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
Ge 2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
Ge 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
They will be consumed with his power, overcome with his goodness, and feel the heat of his love in the presence of god. It is a fearful thing to find god and feel his presence and not understand why you are where you are but again
Webster says it best: a place at which activity is concentrated or toward which people seem to converge a center of interest.
So knowing all of these item where is the Center of God’s Will? Let us examine a little further and see where it might be. PAUL writing tells us:
I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
V2- And be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your minds that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
What are you saying I’m saying, I’M NOT SAYING BUT gods word is saying that be not conformed to this world but having changed hearts and minds by the spirit of god IT will allow us to find and prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of god. Then and only then will our souls be completely happy. Lets look on a little further.
What was gods will with Noah?
And the lord said unto Noah, come thou and all thy house into the ark for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
v The perfect will of god was to help ? This generation.
v How much more will god help you when you’re the only one that is righteous before him in the
Center of his will.
What is gods will with Paul?
But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind called Eurocklydon.
V: 24 fear not Paul thou must be brought before Caesar.
It did not matter that there was a storm,
It did not matter the ship was in trouble,
It did not matter that the storm had driven Paul deep into the ship,
