Trusting In a Time Of Drought

Psalm 25:10-16

10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.

11 For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.

12 What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.

13 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.

14 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant. {and...: or, and his covenant to make them know it}

15 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.

16 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.

I am entitling this today; trusting in a time of Drought

Church there is a massive drought going on in the United States and it is affecting one third of our crops.

They are saying that this is the worst drought of the century.

Food prices, gas prices will be affected by this drought.

What we need is a study rain to quench the ground.

There is a storm that is going to hit this world and we need to be ready.

Jeremiah 5:24-26

24 Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.

25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.

26 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.

Sin causes God to withhold good things from us.

Satan is setting a trap and it seems that those who are weak in the faith are starting to stumble.

What we need to remember is tat God is the one who is in charge of the rain.

He appoints certain places and certain people that He will use for his Glory.

Church there is a storm that is going to hit, and we need protection that comes from God.

God wanted us to change the name of this church for a reason.

We are the Shelter House Assembly of God, where there is refuge from the storm and a place where dreams really do come true.

Psalm 25 is a Psalm of distress by David.

David was lifting up his soul, and did not want to be ashamed of God.

He cried out in verse two let not my enemies triumph over me.

Sometimes it might seem that the Lord tarries long, but wait on him.

He will answer.

David at this time felt like he was being transgressed without a cause.

Ps 25:4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.

Few Christians seek His ways they seek his acts.

Ps 25:5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

Isa 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall

mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Terry sent me an email the other day.

How many know that the Bald eagle has such a significance to our country?

The eagle has the longest life span among birds.

It can live up to 70 years, but to reach this age the eagle must make a hard decision.

In its 40s its long and flexible falcons can no longer grab prey which serves as food.

Its long and sharp beak becomes bent.

Its old aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, become stuck to its chest and make it difficult to fly.

Then the eagle is only left with only two options;

Die or go through a painful process of change which last 150 days.

The process requires that the eagle fly back to its nest.

There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out.

After plucking it out the eagle will wait for a new beak to grow back and then it will pluck out its talons.

With its new talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old aged feathers, and after five months, the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and lives for 30 more years.

Why is change needed?

In order to survive we need to start a change process.

We need sometimes to get rid of old memories, habits and other past traditions.

Only after freed from past burdens, can we take advantage of our present circumstances.
