Summary: The Bible is full of lessons that many opportunities can not never be achieved while sitting doing little. Many are waiting for someone else to get up and do something while they hold the key to the other side.

WHY SIT HERE UNTIL WE DIE? HOW CAN I GET TO THE OTHER SIDE? IF WE STAY HERE, WE DIE?

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

WE FACE TWO OPTIONS: SIT HERE AND DIE OR CHANGE...

FOUR MEN WITH MANY GOOD EXCUSES MAKE A DESCISION: WHY SIT HERE UNTIL WE DIE?

2 Kings 7:3 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die? 4 If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.

DEEPER, DEEPER, DEEPER IN THE LOVE OF JESUS... LIFE IS NOT JUST ABOUT OUR PROBLEMS...

OUR PROBLEMS MIGHT BE ROOTED IN OUR ATTITUDES TOWARD OUR PROBLEMS...

THE PROBLEM OF THE HEART IS THE HEART OF THE PROBLEM...

CHANGE OR DIE?

OUR GOD HAS PROMISED US --- ON THE OTHER SIDE --- I HAVE A PLAN THAT FLOWS WITH MILK AND HONEY...

YOU CAN NOT STAY ON THIS SIDE... SOMETIMES GOD WILL FORCE US TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RED SEA.

In one day God gets the children of God out of Egypt --- BUT IT TOOK 40 YEARS TO GET EGYPT OUT OF GOD'S CHILDREN!

LET US SURVEY OUR PROBLEMS?

There is the RED SEA in front of us...

There is a mighty cloud of dust reaching the sky behind us...

That cloud of dust is RASIED BY THE MOST POWER ARMY IN THE WORLD...

THAT ARMY CAN NOT BE DEFEATED...

GOD HAS A PLAN TO GET US TO THE OTHER SIDE...

THE MIGHTY ARMY --- THE FEAR? THE NEGATIVE MOUTHS? --- LET US RETURN TO THE GARLIC, ONIONS, AND FISH?

Exodus 14:30 Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore. 31 And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and his servant Moses.

GOD HAS A DOOR OF OPPORTUNITY THAT HE OPENS TO THE OTHER SIDE ---

THE FEAR AND WORRY ---

AS AN AIRPLANE ON THE RUN WAY --- THERE IS A POINT OF NO RETURN... FLY/CRASH?

LOOK ON THE OTHER SIDE? THERE IS A GIANT OVER THERE?

ON THIS SIDE THERE IS A LOT OF TEARS, WORRY AND CRYING... LOOK AT THAT GIANT! Look at us?

1 Samuel 17:2 And Saul and the men of Israel were gathered together, and pitched by the valley of Elah, and set the battle in array against the Philistines. 3 And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side: and there was a valley between them. 4 And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.

SOME HOW GOD'S PEOPLE HAVE A WAY OF STANDING ON THE OTHER SIDE AND FOCUSING ON HOW BIG THE GIANT GROWS... For 40 days TWICE A DAY the giant --- CHAMPION --- TOLD THEM... YOU CAN NOT DEFEAT ME! 80 NEGATIVE MESSAGES TAKE DEEP ROOTS...

LET US STAY ON THIS SIDE OF THE VALLEY... We can make it here?

SOME ONE HAS TO GET UP AND SAY: GOD CAN HANDLE THIS... CALL ME A DOG...

THIS IS NOT ABOUT ME THIS IS ABOUT GOD...

CHANGE OR DIE...
