Summary: Society, has raised to many generations, they have let the accuser allow them to think, that God is somehow unapproachable and to busy to be bothered with anything but the 911 emergencies of life. He not only has the time, but wants to help His children!
Emergency 911, "God I Need Your Help Again"
Mal 3:6 MSG
6-7"I am God yes, I Am. I haven't changed. And because I haven't changed, you, the descendants of Jacob, haven't been destroyed.
James 1:17 NKJ
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
Num 23:19 NKJ
19 God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
When I was younger, my relationship with God used to be on a 911 basis.
You know like the one phone call a person gets, if they ever get in trouble with the law.
I Knew He knew, where I lived and I knew how to get a hold of Him, in case of an emergency,
But you know, I never tried to bother Him with the small stuff I thought I could handle on my own,
only the stuff I couldn’t work out on my own, because I never wanted to waste the phone call, or use up all His favor and goodness towards me at once.
That right there my friend, was some stinking thinking, and nothing could be farther from the truth.
But you know a lot of people approach God the same way, and thereby have little or no interaction with Him at all in their life.
It’s a generational, condemnational trick of the accuser, like God has blessings in one hand and a big stick in the other
I say generational, because I had to learn it somewhere from someone else and they learned it the same way.
Its that slap your hand, if you try to take more than one cookie out of the cookie jar at a time mentality of lack.
Jesus didn’t die on the cross, so you could have just one cookie, He died on the cross so you could have access to all the cookies in the cookie jar! Praise God!
He doesnt run out of compassion or favor and He has plenty of resources, TBS He has a vast, or endless supply!
And not only an abundant supply, but one with which He wants to share with His children, not hold back from. Amen?
Are you a child of God this morning?
Than you need to get used to the fact, that you have a generous Daddy!
Hebrews 4:16-18 MSG
14-16. Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God—let’s not let it slip through our fingers. We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.
When you need His help, you don’t have to be afraid to ask, He wants you to ask!
Matt. 7:7-11 MSG.
7-11 “Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This isn’t a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in. If your child asks for bread, do you trick him with sawdust? If he asks for fish, do you scare him with a live snake on his plate? As bad as you are, you wouldn’t think of such a thing. You’re at least decent to your own children. So don’t you think the God who conceived you in love will be even better?
