GOD HAS BIG WINDOWS...

IN ONE DAY... ACCEPT NOTHING LESS...

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

Job 14:1 Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.

2 He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.

Job 14:14 If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait,

till my change come.

I. YOU MAKE THE CHOICE BY YOUR WORDS, CHOICES AND THE FRIENDS

YOU KEEP...

Job 42:10 And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD

gave Job twice as much as he had before.

Job 42:16 After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons,

even four generations.

A. God has a plan...

We can live in one of 3 places...

1. Out of the will of God

2. In the center of God's perfect will

3. In the PERMISSIVE WILL of God,

4. Out of the will of God

B. You are not an ACCIDENT.

The purpose of life and the twisted journey many take you farther and farther

from YOUR DREAM...

This piece of puzzle in your hand may not make sense today... WAIT... PATIENTLY WAIT.

C. This problem, this trial, this pain and hurt, this crushing is GOD TEACHING YOU FAITH

AND BLIND TRUST.

II. GOD IS NOT CAUGHT BY SURPRISE, GOD REQUIRED OUR ENEMY TO HAVE A WAY

OF ESCAPE IN HIS PLAN BEFORE HE CAN USE THIS TRAP...

GOD CAN CHANGE TIS TERRIBLE MESS OVER NIGHT...

IN ONE DAY...

A. Wow, Moses you have made a terrible mess things...

WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THE BACKSIDE OF THE DESERT?

Exodus 3:4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the

midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon

thou standest is holy ground.

B. WE SEE MOSES LIFE IN 3 40 YEAR CYCLES...

1. First 40 years: MOSES IS HOT STUFF living in please and luxury.

2. Second 40 years: MOSES' CONDITIONS ARE DEPRESSING AND BAD...

3. THIRD 40 YEARS: MOSES LEARNED TO TRUST GOD COMPLETELY...

MOSES LEARNED GOD WAS EVERYTHING...

III. BLESSINGS ARE NOT AUTOMATIC... SOMETHINGS A BATTLE IS REQUIRED...

LIFE DOES NOT ALWAYS MAKE SENSE TODAY...

THE QUESTION WE MUST ANSWER: IS GOD AWARE OF MY PLOT?

DO I REALLY TRUST GOD? WILL I FIGHT FOR MY BLESSING...

A. JACOB HAD A DYSFUNCTION FAMILY... His mom and dad fought and fussed, lied and

deceived each other.

B. Jacob and Esau fought in the womb.

C. Neither Jacob nor Esau would accept that their attitude was wrong.

Genesis 32:24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.

25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow

of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.

26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.

27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.

28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with

God and with men, and hast prevailed.
