GOD’S VIEW

INTRO: DEUTERONOMY 8:2

1: KNOW WHAT IS IN THY HEART

A) ISRAEL WONDERED IN THE WILDERNESS FORTY YEARS.

1: HOW MANY OF US HAVE HAD TO WONDER IN THE WILDERNESS?

B) THEY WONDERED BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN THERE UNBELIEF.

C) GOD CHOSE TO HUMBLE THEM

1: A LOT OF TIMES US AS CHRISTIANS NEED A LITTLE HUMBLLING EXPERIENCE WITH THE ALMIGHTY.

2: HE HAS TO LITERALLY PUNISH US IN SOME FORM OR FASHION TO GET OUR ATTENTION.

D) DOES GOD HAVE TO TEST US TO KNOW WHAT IS IN OUR HEARTS?

1: NO! GOD IS ALL KNOWING HE ALREADY KNOWS, THE TEST IS FOR THE BELIVER TO FIND OUT WHAT’S IN HIS OR HER HEART.

2: 1 SAMUEL 16:7

A) SAMUEL IS ANONTING A NEW KING FOR ISRAEL

B) SAMUEL THINKS THAT ELIAB IS THE ONE

C) HE WAS THE OLDEST AND STRONGEST OF THE BOYS

D) SAMUEL LOOKED ALL THE SONS OF JESSE UNTIL ONLY ONE WAS LEFT

POINT: V 7 GOD SAID THE LORD SEETH NOT AS MAN SEETH, THE LORD LOOKS ON THE HEART OF A MAN . THE HEART OF A MAN DETERMINES WHAT KIND OF MAN THAT PERSON WILL BE.

EXAMPLE: STRONG WILLED MAN-STRONG HEART BUT IS NOT EASILY SWAYED ON HOW HE THINKS OR BELIEVES

TENDER HEARTED MAN- CARING AND IS EASILY PERSUADED TO HELP IF HIS OPINON OR THINKING IS DIFFERENT

COLD HEARTED MAN- THINKS ONLY ABOUT HIMSELF DOESN’T CARE ABOUT ANYONE OR ANYTHING ELSE IN LIFE.

BODY: JEREMIAH 17: 9

1: THE HEART IS DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS AND DSEPERATLEY WICKED.

A) A PERSONS HEART CAN LEAD THEM ASTRAY OFTEN

B) V 10 SAYS THE LORD SEARCHES THE HEART

C) HE TRIES THE HEART

POINT: WHY DOES THE BIBLE SAY THE HEART IS DESPERATLEY WICKED? A HEART WITHOUT GOD IN IT IS DECEITFUL BECAUSE IT ONLY FEELS FOR WHAT SATISFIES THE FLESH.

2: MATT 14: 22-31

A) PETER WALKS ON THE WATER

B) HE SINKS THOUGH

C) HIS HEART HAD FEAR

D) HIS FAITH SHRANK AND HE BEGAN TO SINK

POINT: THERE WAS A STORM ALL AROUND PETER WHILE HE WALKED OUT TO JESUS BUT HE HAD JESUS IN SIGHT AND STILL HE HAD UNBELIEF. A LOT LIKE US WE HAVE CHRIST IN OUR HEARTS BUT WE NEVER ALLOW HIM TO TAKE FULL CONTROL.

3: LOOK FROM GOD’S PERSPECTIVE

A) GOD LOOKS AT THE HEART

B) WHAT KINDA SHAPE IS YOUR HEART IN

C) DOES YOUR HEART HAVE CHRIST IN IT?

D) COULD YOU WALK OR WOULD YOU SINK?

POINT: WE ALL HAVE OBSTACLES IN OUR LIVES WE ALL HAVE SIN AND TEMPTATION SOME OF THESE THINGS CAN SEEM IMPOSSIBLE IF OUR HEART ISN’T IN THE RIGHT CONDITION.WE DON’T ACCOMPLISH SOME THINGS WE SET OUT ON BECAUSE OUR HEART IS NOT IN THE RIGHT PLACE TO START WITH.

A) HEZEKIAH, KING HEZEKIAH THE KING WHO HAD A GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

B) HE WAS THE LEADER WHO BROUGHT ABOUT A GREAT REVIVAL IN ISRAEL DURING HIS REIGN

C) HE RESTORED THE PEOPLE’S FAITH TO GOD

POINT: AS GREAT A MAN AS HE WAS GOD STILL CHOSE TO TEST HIM, GOD LEFT HIM TO TRY HIM WHY? TO KNOW ALL THAT WAS IN HIS HEART.

2: GOD CAN’T LEAVE US

A) TRUE BUT OUR LIFESTYLES CAN GREIVE AND CAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO NOT BE AS PRESENT

B) THE HOLY SPIRIT IS POWERFUL BUT WE CAN COUNTERACT THAT POWER WITH UNCONFESSED SIN AND UNGODLY LIVING.

C) GOD CAN WITHDARW FROM US TO SHOW US WHAT IS REALLY IN OUR HEARTS

D) WHEN WE SEE THAT IT CAN BE VERY PAINFUL
