DOUBT LAUGHING VS LAUGH OF FAITH?

DENYING DOUBT AND SELF CHOICES ---

VS RUNNING OVER? DREAMING OF AN OVERFLOW...

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

This is part two. Part #1 was: SHALL WE LIVE A LIFE BLINDFOLDED?

WILL WE ALLOW THE NEGATIVE TO DEFINE US...

I. WE CARRY A GREAT ABILITY OF DENIAL... SELF DENIAL HINDERS CORRECTION

AND REPENTANCE...

WE CAN NEVER CHANGE WHAT WE ARE NOT WILLING TO ACKNOWLEDGE...

WHAT DO YOU SEE? WHERE DO YOU FOCUS?

A. I purchased a SIESTA MASK, or a SLEEP MASK. ($1.99, I have often used this)

I put this BLIND FOLD on a person, and asked them to walk while wearing this.

I asked them to pick up a dollar bill...

B. THERE ARE NONE SO BLIND AS THOSE THAT REFUSE TO SEE...

1. Ask a person with a TEMPER PROBLEM?

2. Ask an alcoholic? Drug addict?

3. Ask an UNFAITHFUL PERSON?

I talked to a leader about missing church so often? They come once every 5 services?

They told me they never missed church?

C. Do we allow problems to define us?

Or do we define the problem and look for a solution?

It becomes so easy to RE-DEFINE OUR PROBLEMS TO MAKE US LOOK GOOD?

D. We PLLIATE and make light of WHAT THE REAL ISSUE COULD BE...

Exodus 32:21 And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought

so great a sin upon them? 22 And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest

the people, that they are set on mischief. 23 For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go

before us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not

what is become of him. 24 And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So

they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.

E. AARON HAS SEVERAL EXCUSES TO DENY THE PROBLEM OF SIN IN THE CAMP.

1. I just took what "THEY GIVE ME."

2. I just did what "THEY SAID."

3. This gold god is the ONE THAT BROUGHT US OUT OF EGYPT.

4. DON'T BE MAD AT ME?

5. MOSES YOU KNOW HOW MEAN AND SINFUL THESE PEOPLE ARE.

6. They gave me...

7. I cast it in the fire ===> THIS CALK CAME WALKING OUT?

F. LOOK AT WHAT REALLY HAPPENED ====>

Exodus 32:2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears

of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.

3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them

unto Aaron. 4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he

had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up

out of the land of Egypt. 5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made

proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD.

G. AARON HAS SEVERAL EXCUSES TO DENY THE PROBLEM OF SIN IN THE CAMP.

1. I just took what "THEY GIVE ME."

2. I just did what "THEY SAID."

3. This gold god is the ONE THAT BROUGHT US OUT OF EGYPT.

H. DOUBT: Doubt the leader ====> Doubt God ===> Doubt God's words and promises.

II. GOD HAS A PLAN --- HIS PLAN BUBBLING --- IS OVER-FLOWING

WE OFTEN ALLOW PROBLEMS TO DEFINE WHO WE ARE?

YOU ARE A PRODUCT OF YOUR CHOICES...

IT IS NOT JUST WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU --- IT IS WHAT HAPPENS IN YOU...

A. I AM DRINKING FROM THE SAUCER BECAUSE MY CUP OVERFLOWS...

Psalm 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my

head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of

my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Psalm 23:5-6 (NLT) You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me

by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.

6 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live

in the house of the Lord forever.

Psalm 23:5-6 (MSG) You serve me a six-course dinner right in front of my enemies. You revive

my drooping head; my cup brims with blessing.

6 Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life. I'm back home in the house of God
