DO YOU WANT WHINE WITH YOUR CHEESE? TRACKING... COMMUNICATION SKILLS ---

EXAMINE YOUR WORDS AS WELL AS YOUR HEART...

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

THERE ARE SOME HARD TO LEARN LESSONS... ONE OF THE HARDEST TO LEARN MEANS YOU HAVE TO UNLEARN WHAT YOU ARE PRACTICING...

Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Do you ever keep track of what you say? How you say it? Are you making yourself clear? I have some goals: I want to learn communication skills that what I say can be clearly understood. Then I desire to learn to communicate so clear that what I say cannot be misunderstood.

One way to accomplish this goal is to LEARN TO HONESTLY EVALUATE and KEEP TRACK of your words.

ARE YOU REALLY COMMUNICATING WHAT GOD DESIRES... (LOVE, COMPASSION, KINDNESS, PEACE,

What kind of understanding do you leave behind you?

GOD LOVES TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE... GOD LOOKS BEYOND OUR FAULTS, FEARS, TO HIS PLAN...

GOD COMMUNICATES WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO HURTING PEOPLE...

COME LET US EVALUATE WHAT GOD SAID TO A FEW PEOPLE...

1. There was a man that was defeated and put down. The Midianites were stealing and destroying any hope there was in Israel. In Israel just about the time something good was about to happen the mean, bad Midianites would rush in an steal anything of value and destroy anything they did not want.

There was a LITTLE NOBODY from a LITTLE NOBODY FAMILY living in a LITTLE NO-WHERE PLACE. The family was dysfunctional and was in a big mess. The family was poor. They had UNHEALTHY PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL ATTITUDES...

THEY WERE A HOPELESS MESS... THE JUDGMENT OF SIN AND BAD ATTITUDES BROUGHT OPPRESSION. The enemy found victory after victory.

This mess was a CONSEQUENCES OF BAD CHOICES and DEEP SIN... The daily choices the people were making was the DRIVING FORCE BEHIND THESE PROBLEMS... SELF INFLICTED PAIN!

Judges 6:10 And I said unto you, I am the LORD your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice.

GOD'S MERCY SAW BEYOND THE MESS AND BROUGHT A MESSAGE OF HOPE...

Judges 6:12 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour.

My friend, let me tell you a fact: IF GOD IS WITH YOU AND YOU ARE WITH GOD --- WE CAN DEVELOP A PLAN OF VICTORY... Will you refuse to accept that there is something better than this?

LORD IF YOU ARE WITH US... WHY ARE WE IN THIS MESS? THINK ABOUT YOUR CHOICES AND CHANGE THEM...

Judges 6:13 And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.

DID YOU KNOW --- WE HAVE TO TAKE OWNERSHIP OF OUR PROBLEMS IN COMMUNICATION AND BEHAVIOR... QUIT MAKING EXCUSES...

Judges 6:15 And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house.

THE CONSEQUENCES BEGAN TO CHANGE WHEN THE ALTAR RETURNED...

JEHOVAH- SHALOM...

Judges 6:23 And the LORD said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die.

24 Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovahshalom: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

LIFE IS NOT JUST HOW YOU SEE YOURSELF...

LIFE IS NOT JUST HOW OTHERS SEE YOU...

LIFE IS HOW DOES GOD SEE YOU...

Jeremiah 1:4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 5 Before I formed thee in the

belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. 6 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.

NEVER TELL GOD WHAT YOU CANNOT DO!

Gideon seemed to have trouble accepting God had a plan for "LITTLE O'ME"

YOUR HISTORY HISTORY DOES NOT HAVE TO DEFINE YOU TODAY...

WE MUST QUIT SEE SELF AS --- I AM JUST A LITTLE CHILD... NOBODY.

SOMEONE MUST ARISE AND COMMUNICATE THE THOUGHT... GOD HAS A PLAN. WE CAN. WE CAN MAKE IT. GOD CAN DEVELOP HIS PLAN IN YOU AND REACH YOUR WHOLE FAMILY... YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR THINKING PATTERNS AND THOUGHT PROCESSES... TEAR DOWN THE BAD ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIOR...
