Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: God always has us on His mind and even when we don't realize it, He is taking care of everything we need

Sometimes we look around but don't see what's going On.

2 Kings 6:8- 17

I God knows what we need before we need it. vs 14

and they came by night,

Notice what the Bible doesn't say.

That Elisha and his servant saw the trouble they were in and

prayed for help.

That Elisha called fire down from Heaven or called on God to

wipe out his enemies

God knew what they needed before they did.

1 John 3:20 tells us that God knoweth all things.

Why is it that when we get in trouble we cry out to God like he didn't

see it coming?

You can't surprise God. God isn't sitting behind a desk going over

one prayer request after another finding out things about the

lives of his children he didn't know.

Ps 40:5 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou

hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be

reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them,

they are more than can be numbered.

Ps 139:17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great

is the sum of them! 18 If I should count them, they are more in

number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD,

thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

II. God will send more than it takes to take care of it. vs 17

the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

Is 37:36 Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the

camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five

thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold,

they were all dead corpses.

That means that one angel wiped out 185,000 people in one night, by

his self, and to protect His prophet Elisha he sends enough angels

to cover the mountain side.

God wasn't playing. his angels were going to get the job done.

David said in his 23rd psalm Yea, though I walk through the

valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art

with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

If I had to rely on nothing but myself no matter what kind of situation I

was end, I would be a nervous wreck. But I know I am never alone.

God is always with me. He is always doing what needs to be done for me

III. God Can Fix it even if we don't believe it vs 15 & 16

In this passage Elisha had faith but his servant didn't. Guess what!

Elisha's servant was saved from destruction too.

It really bothers me when I hear about some quake faith healer on

television that tells a person with a terminal decease that the

reason they weren't healed is because they didn't have enough


I know the Bible says that without Faith it's impossible to please God,

but it doesn't say that when our faith is weak God kicks us to the


There are at least five references in the Bible where Jesus says, Thy faith

hath made thee whole, and a miracle took place but there are

examples where Jesus Healed people and they never even saw

him. Faith isn't always a requirement.

Elisha and his servant went to bed one night and when they woke up

they were already surrounded. But God had taken care of their

problem before they knew they had one.

It wasn't done according to their faith, but according to God's Power.

The Bible tells us in Jer 32:17 Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast

made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched

out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:

Church we need to remember we serve the King of Kings and the

Lord of Lords.

There is no god like our GOD.

The Bible says in Phil 4: 13 I can do all things through Christ which

strengtheneth me.

As great and powerful as that verse is sometimes we simply need to

remember that sometimes we don't have to do a thing because God

has already taken care of it.

He has made a way where there didn't seem to be a way.

He has seen the future and directed our path

He has provided. He has protected. He has Blessed more than we have

even dreamed.

When I walk those streets of Gold. When I see all my family and friends

that have went on before. when I get to stand before my God. before

my Lord and Savior and I take a couple of hundred years thanking
