Summary: If is one of the largest two letter words? No sadder words of pen or tongue than the words what might have been? God can take this mess and change people! Little effort? little fruit!
THE BIG 2 LETTER WORD: IF --- NO SADDER WORDS ---
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
Do we really accept the OLD MAN IS DEAD ---
THERE CAN BE A NEW MAN...
FOCUSED WORSHIP CHANGES HEARTS, ATTITUDES, FAMILIES, CHURCHES
AND OUR SOCIETY...
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are
passed away; behold, all things are become new.
THIS MESS? THERE IS A BIG QUESTION WHEN ---
WHEN THINGS ARE GOING WRONG --- THERE IS AN ANSWER...
2 Chronicles 6:26 When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have
sinned against thee; yet if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn
from their sin, when thou dost afflict them;
ANOTHER BIG QUESTION IS IF---
IF --- SOMETHING MAY HAPPEN? MAY NOT?
SOMETHING MUST HAPPEN BEFORE ANOTHER THING CAN HAPPEN
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and
pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and
will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
TALK ABOUT A MESS?
THERE ARE NO SADDER WORDS OF PEN OR TONGUE THAN THE WORDS
WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN --- !!!
FOR MOST OF US OUR PROBLEMS ARE NOT WE NEED MORE ---
WE NEED ---BETTER...
The enemy of better is good --- if we get good at something we often plateau and never
The less effort you apply the less joy and hope you have.
I once had a straight A student, I gave him a B in effort.
His dad came to school and discussed this with me.
I explained YOU SON IS SO SMART HE JUST SLIDES DOWN ---
HE NEVER APPLIES HIMSELF --- I DREAM OF HIM BECOME SO MUCH BETTER...
OUR MESS WILL STAY A MESS UNTIL WE PRIORTIZE AND FOCUS ON ETERNAL
VALUES --- THE TOOL IS WORSHIP!
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you.
WORSHIP IS THE TICKET OUT OF THIS MESS...
WORSHIP GETS YOU OUT OF DARK HOLES...
GOD HAS A PLAN --- THE PIT IS ALWAYS BEFORE THE PALACE!
Will problems dash the dream?
No one understood little brother, Joseph he was despised and rejected?
Imagine the pain and hurt?
JOSEPH added to the pain with a BIG MOUTH and a SHOW-OFF SPIRIT.
Genesis 37:18 And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto
them, they conspired against him to slay him. 19 And they said one to another,
Behold, this dreamer cometh.
THE 10 MEAN BROTHERS STRIPPED OFF THE COAT OF PROMISE...
THE COAT OF BLESSING CAN NOT FADE WITH THIS MESS ---
Genesis 37:20 Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we
will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.
THE PLAN OF THE FLESH FAILS --- BUT GOD HAS A PLAN ---
WE MUST WORSHIP IN THE PIT --- WORSHIP IS THE TOOL THAT BRINGS
DELIVERANCE AND THE DREAM SHINES ON---
GENESIS 37:21 And Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands; and said,
Let us not kill him. 22 And Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood, but cast him into this
pit that is in the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him; that he might rid him out of their hands,
to deliver him to his father again. 23 And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren,
that they strip Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him; 24 And they took
him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.
THIS MESS IS A MESS! HIP, HIP HOORAY --- THEY ARE LIFTING ME OUT OF THIS PIT ---
THIS IS NOT PART OF MY DREAM --- THIS IS STILL A S MESS---
THE MIRACLE IS WORKING IN THE DARK SLAVERY...
Genesis 37:26 And Judah said unto his brethren, What profit is it if we slay our brother, and
conceal his blood? 27 Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand be upon
him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren were content. 28 Then there passed by
Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the
Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.
REAL WORSHIP REQUIRES FAITH, TRUST AND A LOT OF WAIT...
Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
