Summary: Often we try to bypass the waiting room, but there can be found great purpose while waiting for God's good things. Do we honestly evaluate where we have been, where we are going? There may be a reason God ask us to WAIT UPON HIM?

TRYING TO BYPASS THE WAITING ROOM...

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

I. GOD HAS AN EVALUATION SYSTEM...

HIS SCALES ARE FAITHFUL AND TRUE.

A. THE PARTY IS ON... NO CORRECTION TO LIFE STYLE? THE SCALES...

YOU HAVE ONE MORE NIGHT

Daniel 5:24 Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written.

[25] And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

[26] This is the interpretation of the thing: Mene; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.

[27] Tekel; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

[28] Peres; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.

[30] In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain.

B. EXAMINE SELF...CORRECT THE PROBLEM...

2 Cor. 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not

your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

II. BYPASS THE WAITING ROOM?

Psalm 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

[24] And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

A. We lived in Virginia and had wonderful neighbors.

One day Linda was visiting Doris as our son played with their son.

Doris started crying and told Linda she was greatly concerned.

As they talked Doris shared with Linda, her breast was as hard as a rock.

Linda begged Doris to go to the door tomorrow.

Sometime later Doris went to a doctor... IT WAS TOO LATE...

There was mastectomy but the cancer was too far gone.

Doris was faced death in a short time.

B. You know, I have always had a desire to have a doctor as a friend.

I could just call and with no appointment have the doctor give me samples of what ever

medicine I needed and I would get better immediately.

Wow, would that be nice to BYPASS THE WAITING ROOM.

Let me tell you about of friend of mine that achieved my dream.

I would visit my friend, she had a problem, she would call the doctor friend and with

out any examine or anything the person when and picked up the medicine for free.

For years my friend BYPASSED THE WAITING ROOM and would laugh at us "poor"

folk... THEY HAD A FRIEND!

The person developed a SIMPLE HEALTH PROBLEM, make the call and tell the

doctor and free samples awaited...

The problem PERSISTED, the doctor friend took care of it.

After time and again getting the FREE FIX the doctor said: MAYBE I BETTER

CHECK OUT THIS PROBLEM?

After several years of this health problem, the DOCTOR DEMANDED TO SEE THE

PROBLEM... AFTER AN APPOINTMENT, THE PERSON FOUND OUT WHAT THEY

TOLD THE DOCTOR WAS A MINOR PROBLEM, THE PROBLEM WAS A SERIOUS

CANCER. There was immediate surgery, but the CANCER HAD GROWN and

death was soon.

THE TWO FRIENDS BYPASSED THE WAITING ROOM AT A GREAT EXPENSE.

The years of not having a medical examine was very EXPENSIVE.

C.DO YOU SEE HOW THIS CAN BE APPLIED SPIRITUALLY?

III. MANY HAVE THE ATTITUDE, WHAT I DO NOT KNOW CAN NOT HURT ME....

Psalm 26:2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

A. FOR WHAT?

There was this man that worked in a massive plant of over 1,000 employees.
