TEXT:

Romans 8:28 And WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER...

1Tim. 2:1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,

2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.

3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,

4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,

6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,

7 for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle--I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying--a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

Isa. 40:31 They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength

Life has many questions that we cannot answer, and problems that man cannot solve, so what do we do? Throw up our hands and quit?

It is always too soon to quit. We need to focus on what we know, not the doubts and fears. God has a clear plan and purpose, we must focus clearly.

The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.

But how can we focus on the main thing until we discipline our heart, our mind, and our focus. We a written, clear vision, we need to update our vision and adapt it, but we need on focus on what we know and a priority system that reaches beyond the five senses.

We see then believe? Or is it we believe and then we see?

Because we have not established a priority system we often times miss identify who the real enemy might be? Is your spouse the enemy? Is the preacher your enemy?

It is hard to do battle without knowing who the enemy is?

In the heat of battle it can be very easy to forget what we know?

We know that all things work together, but stepping out of the bounds of faith into the emotional realm, we forget that we know this, --- and we can run around like a chicken with it’s head cut off.

I am told that a chicken can live several days without it’s head, but we know Christians can live without their heads, but their faith walk is very limited.

Faith knows how to:

walk...

In Love...

In the light...

and in wisdom

1) Faith prays for everyone, and then waits in

complete trust

1Tim. 2:1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,

2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.

3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,

4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,

6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,

7 for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle--I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying--a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

Isa. 40:31 They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength
