Summary: This was a turning point message for the church I’ve been Pastoring for 6 months. It’s time to move on with God.

IT’S TIME TO MOVE

I SAMUEL 16:1-13

• GOD HAS PLACES

• GOD SOVEREIGNLY SELECTS SCENES AND SETTINGS IN ORDER TO INSTITUTE AND INITIATE HIS WILL

• GOD IS GEOGRAPHICALLY STRATEGIC

• HE CONNECTS HIMSELF TO MAN NOT ONLY THROUGH HISTORY, BUT ALSO THROUGH GEOGRAPHY AND TOPOGRAPHY

• PLACES HOWEVER DO NOT HAVE GOD

• ON MARS HILL PAUL SPEAKS TO THE ATHENIAN LEADERS AND HE SAYS

• “THE GOD THAT MADE THE WORLD AND ALL THINGS THEREIN, SEEING THAT HE IS LORD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH DWELLETH NOT IN TEMPLES MADE WITH HANDS.”

• God transcends terafirma

• God cannot be circumscribed by his own creation

• God cannot be limited by location

• God cannot be regulated by laws of longitude and latitude

• God is not controlled by the compass

• God is not locked in by N, S, E, and W.

• God cannot be restricted by boundaries of brick and mortar

• God cannot be located by a gps

• In fact god is omnipresent

• He is everywhere at the same time

• Absent from no where at any time

• He meets himself coming when he’s going

• He meets himself going when he’s coming

• He exits when he enters

• He enters when he exits

• Hi’s up when he’s down

• He’s down when he’s up

• There is no controlling God he is boundless, endless and limitless

• He is timeless, eternal, and infinite

• God is not some local diety

• God is not some buddah that u can sit and put in your place

• God is not some moon deity

• I don’t mean any harm but I need to remind us that our God’s name is Jehovah

• His name is not buddah, brahma, allah, or muhammid.

• He is the only true and living God.

• And not only is he God, he’s got a son named jesus and he gave himself a name above every name.

• That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

• Our God is a great God and he is worthy to be praised

• The heavens are his throne

• The earth is his foot stool

• The prophet Isaiah reminds us that he measured the waters in the hallow of his hand

• He meaded out the heavens with a span

• Comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure

• Weighed the mountains in a scale and put the hills in a balance

• God has places that are assigned for the unveiling and unfolding of his purpose

• And I want to tell u tonight that whatever purpose God has for you…

• He will not only give you the purpose, but he will also give you the place

• And if God has put a word in your mouth, you don’t have to ask anybody to preach

• You don’t have to invite yourself to anybodies pulpit

• If god has called you to preach he will open doors and you gift will make room for you.

• So in Eden god put Adam to dress it and to keep it because God has places

• Noah and his family are on a mountain called Ararat because God has places

• Joseph is in a prison on his way to a palace, because god has places

• Samson’s hair is growing again in a philistine prison because god has places

• Elijah is being fed by Ravens on his way to a widows house because god has places

• John the Apostle is writing a revelation on the Patmos island because god has places

• God works in specific places

• And God works in specific people in those specific places

• Imagine the ministry of our master

• Could we really preach Jesus and not preach about his places

• If you think about it Jesus is sent from a place called heaven to a place called Bethlehem

• Concealed in a place called Egypt

• Reared in a place called Nazareth
