WHY DO PEOPLE FACE A HOLY DISSATISFACTION?

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

Dissatisfaction... make discontented, lacking contentment, restlessness, lack of ease, distress,

Finding no rest or peace, uneasy, agitated, tense, nervous.

I. MY FRIEND WE NEED THE HOLY SPIRIT TO BEGIN A NEW WORK OF A HOLY DISSATIFACTION

OF WHERE WE ARE... YOU DON'T NEED TO MOVE, YOU DON'T NEED A NEW FAMILY, YOU NEED

A BRAND NEW APPRECIATION AND ATTITUDE ... WE NEED A PATTERN OF THINKING. A CHANGE

OF BEHAVIOR, SPEAKING NEW POWERFUL WORDS OF AGREEMENT.

MOST PEOPLE SEEM TO BE SATISFIED TO STAY THE SAME.

HOW INSANE IS IT TO EXPPECT THINGS TO CHANGE AND BE DIFFERENT WHEN WE

ARE CONTENT TO STAY THE SAME... IF YOU STAY THE SAME, YOUR PROBLEMS AND

TRIALS WILL TEND TO BE CIRCLUAR, YOU WILL NEVER BREAK FREE...

Psalm 63:1 A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in

a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

[2] To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

A. BIBLICALLY SPEAKING WE CAN FALL INTO SEVERAL CLASSIFICATIONS...

1. WE CAN BE FRUIT TREES (Bearing good fruit) or we can be FIRE WOOD, that will burn

to ashes...

2. We can have GREAT ZEAL and ENTHUSIAM or we can operate in APATHY, LUKEWARMNESS

or COLD AND INDIFFERENCE.

3. We can search for PLEASURE IN TOYS and GAMES, or we can INVEST IN BENEFITAL TOOLS

that will help us accomplish God's work.

4. We can pride ourselves in PRETTY TRINKETS OF WORTHLESS ORNAMENT and POPULARITY

and APPLAUSE that is mere vanity. Or we can invest our TIME, TALENTS, and EFFORTS in GREAT

ETERNAL TREASURES.

B. When an eagle senses a storm is approaching it launches off it's nest and flies above the storm,

until the storm passes.

II. MY FRIEND, I WILL TELL YOU WHEN YOU WILL CHANGE... MY PROPHETIC SKILLS, JUST

LIFE LESSONS... WILL WILL CHANGE WHEN THE PAIN OF STAYING THE SAME IS GREATER

THE THE PAIN OF STAYING THE SAME... WHY SHOULD YOU WAIT FOR PAIN DRIVEN CHANGE?

WHY NOT COME AND SUBMIT TO GOD'S PLAN OF GROWTH.

Matthew 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the

power of God.

A. When I was a boy I would have a pain and I would run to Mom. Mom kiss the place of pain and then

say: SON, IT IS A GROWING PAIN...

B. Every growing church has GROWING PAIN. Every people problem has a solution. Part of the solution

is having GREAT PATIENCE. The other part is an "HOLY DISSATISFACTION" with a deep knowledge

of the word of God and standing on the power the word has...

C. YOU, MY FRIEND HAVE THE KEYS,

III. MY FRIEND DO YOU REALIZE YOU ARE NOT THE PROBLEM--- YOU, YOUR TEAM AND GOD ARE

THE SOLUTION... YOU DETERMINE HOW FAR FROM GOD YOU WILL DO HIS WORK...

James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;

and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

A. SEVERAL WEAKNESS WITHIN THE CAMP OF GOD HINDER SPIIRITUAL PROGRESS...

A. Unfaithfulness

B. The tendency to blame others and no one taking OWNERSHIP or RESPONSIBILITY.
