Unusual Places God can take you!

THIS SERMON SUGGESTS THAT SOMETIMES GOD WILL LEAD US INTO PLACES THAT HE MAY GET THE GLORY. SOMETIMES GOD BRINGS US TO OUR PLACE OF TESTING. My wife and I have been in many unusual places ourselves as for the past 45 years we have traveled and ministered in over 125 countries. We have held meetings in chicken houses to the finest auditoriums of Europe. From grass fields, to some of the world’s finest stadiums. One thing certain is that He is always there. He will never send us somewhere that He will not go with us. We have slept in usual places, more than 4,000 beds. (If you can call all the places we have slept beds.) We slept in waterbeds before they invented them. The roof leaked or the children did. Water beds. We have use eaten usual food. From dog soup, lizard to the finest restaurants of the world. God has always been with us. In this sermon outline we look at a number of unusual places that saints of God found themselves.

I. God’s people during their walk of faith can find themselves in some very unusual places.

A. Marge and I have been in some very unusual places in our lives and have eaten, slept and traveled and practiced some very unusual things.

B. Being found in the Will of God is the most important place to be.

II. Men in the Bible found them selves in some unusual places when they got out of the will of God.

A. Jonah was running from God and the call of God.

Jonah 2:1 NIV) From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the LORD his God.

1, Great mystery here is how did the fish stand to have the backslidden preacher for three days.

2. However, the belly of the fish was an unusual place of repentance.

a. We can repent anywhere, God is ready.

B. There was David in enemy territory acting insane

1 Sam 21:10-15 And David arose, and fled that day for fear of Saul, and went to Achish the king of Gath.

{11} And the servants of Achish said unto him, Is not this David the king of the land? did they not sing one to another of him in dances, saying, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands?

{12} And David laid up these words in his heart, and was sore afraid of Achish the king of Gath.

{13} And he changed his behaviour before them, and feigned himself mad in their hands, and scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and let his spittle fall down upon his beard.

{14} Then said Achish unto his servants, Lo, ye see the man is mad: wherefore then have ye brought him to me?

1. Associating with the world can cause us to do unusual things. David the one who would unite Israel and Judah humbled him self. He became King. God raised him up.

(1 Pet 5:6 KJV) Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

a. It is always better to humble yourself than to have God do it for you.

2. Look at King NEBUCHADNEZZAR, He had to have God do it for him before he would recognize the Almighty God.

Daniel 4:25 That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
