UNDERSTANDING HEART

1 KINGS 3:6-9

INTRO: LITTLE BOY WALKING IN HIS FATHER’S SHOES.

1: SIMPLE THINGS

A) EVER TAKE NOTICE HOW GOD USES THINGS AND PEOPLE TO GET OUR ATTENTION?

B) RECENTLY I TOOK NOTICE TO MY SON WEARING MY SHOES AROUND THE HOUSE

C) SMALL FEET BIG SHOES

D) HE WOULD TAKE SMALL STEPS AND PULL THE BIG SHOES BEHIND HIM

E) I WAS STUDYING AND TRYING TO FOCUS WHEN GOD GOT MY ATTENTION THROUGH THAT SIGHT.

POINT: YOU HEAR A LOT ABOUT PREACHERS AND EVANGELIST SAYING GOD SPOKE TO ME OR GOD TOLD ME TO TELL YOU THIS TONIGHT. A LOT OF TIMES GOD IS SPEAKING TO ALL OF US THROUGH SIMPLE SMALL EVERYDAY THINGS WE EXPERIENCE. WE JUST HAVE TO HAVE A HEART THAT IS SEEKING AND TRYING TO UNDERSTAND.

2: THE KING

A) SOLOMON IN 1 KINGS

B) TAKES THE THRONE AND IS UNSURE OF HIMSELF

C) HE HAS A DREAM IN WHICH GOD TELLS HIM HE GIVE WHATEVER SOLOMON DESIRES.

D) HE RECALLS HIS FATHER’S RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

POINT: IMAGINE YOURSELF IN THIS SITUATION GOD SAYS I WILL GIVE YOU WHATEVER YOU ASK. YOU ARE KING OF MY PEOPLE AND I AM ENTRUSTING YOU WITH LEADING THEM AND GUIDING THEM IN ALL MY WAYS. WHAT IS IT YOU WANT?

BODY: THE KING’S RESPONSE

1: THY SERVANT

A) V 7 SOLOMON REFERS TO HIMSELF AS SERVANT

B) IMPORTANT BECAUSE WE ARE ALL SERVANTS OF THE LORD

C) THIS IS THE MIND SET OF ALL THE GREAT CHAMPIONS OF OUR FAITH

D) IT IS THE VERY MIND OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR WHO SAID HE CAME TO SERVE NOT TO BE SERVED

POINT: WE MUST UNDERSTAND OUR ROLE AND PLACE IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS. WE ARE THE SERVANTS OF CHRIST AND THROUGH HIM WE CAN DO ALL THINGS. WHATEVER YOU WANT IS WHAT GOD ASKED AND THE RESPONSE WAS THY SERVANT IS KING

2: I AM BUT A LITTLE CHILD

A) THE KING FELT AS IF HE WAS TO YOUNG OR IMMATURE TO RULE

B) I KNOW NOT

C) EVER MET A KNOW IT ALL

D) THEY CAN BE HARD TO GET ALONG WITH

E) THE NATURE OF CHRISTIANS IS TO BE HUMBLE BUT STRONG

POINT: WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT AND WE ALL HAVE STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES THE BIBLE SAYS THAT CHRIST’S STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT IN WEAKNESS. WHERE WE FEEL WEAK JESUS IS OUR STRENGTH WE MAY NOT BE WONDERFUL TEACHERS OR SPEAKERS BUT JESUS CHRIST HAS ALREADY TAUGHT AND SAID EVERYTHING WE NEED TO LEARN AND REPEAT.

3: UNDERSTANDING HEART

A) THIS IS WHAT EVERY PERSON NEEDS

B) CHRISTIANS STRUGGLE FROM TIME TO TIME

C) WE ARE UNSURE OF THINGS SOMETIMES

D) WE NEED MORE EVIDENCE AT TIMES

E) SEEKING UNDERSATNDING IS SOMETHING WE TRY BUT SOME GIVE UP

POINT: HAVE YOU EVER ASKED GOD TO HELP YOU LORD GIVE THE UNDERSTANDING I NEED TO COPE WITH THINGS AND GET THROUGH THE DAY AND POSSIBLY HELP SOMEONE ELSE.

CONCLUSION: BIG SHOES TO FILL

WE AT TIMES FEEL AS IF WE HAVE TO MEET A STANDARD OR LIVE BY A STATUS QUO BUT THE TRUTH IS MANY THINGS WE TRY ARE JUST MAN MADE RELIGIOUS TRADITONS THAT THE WORD OF GOD NEVER SPEAKS OF. LET’S READ STUDY AND PRAY MORE AND SEEK THE LORD JESUS CHRIST FOR UNDERSTANDING IN OUR HEARTS.
