WHERE’S GOD?

INTRO: TRIALS, TRIBULATION, TEARS, AND TRIUMPH

1: TRIALS

A) THESE COME IN MANY FORMS AND SHAPES

B) EVENTS AND TIMES IN OUR LIVES

C) THE TWELVE WENT THROUGH TRIALS THEY ALL FELL ASLEEP AT THE GARDEN.

D) THEY WERE ALL IN THE BOAT DURING THE STORM

E) THEY ALL LIVE A LIFE OF HARDSHIP AND DIED A MARTYRS DEATH WITH THE EXCEPTION OF JOHN

POINT: TRIALS COME AND FOR GOOD REASONS, THEY HELP SHAPE AND MOLD WHO WE ARE. 1 PETER 1:7 SAYS, THE TRIAL OF YOUR FAITH BEING MUCH MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD. IT ALSO TELLS US IN 1 PETER 4:12, THINK IT NOT STRANGE CONCERNING THE FIERY TRIAL WHICH IS TO TRY YOU.

2: TRIBULATION

A) THIS IS BEST DESCRIBED AS WHAT WE EXPERINECE DURING A TRIAL

B) IT IS ALSO A METHOD OF DISCIPLINE USED BY GOD

C) ROMANS 2:9 SAYS, TRIBULATION UPON EVERY SOUL THAT DOETH EVIL

D) IT IS ALSO A METHOD OF BRINGING ABOUT MATURITY

E) ROMANS 5:3 SAYS, TRIBULATION WORKETH PATIENCE

POINT: AT TIMES TRIBULATION CAN FEEL AS IF IT IS TOO MUCH TO BEAR. ROMANS 8:35 SAYS WHO SHALL SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST. JESUS SAID IN JOHN 16:33, IN THE WORLD YOU SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION, BUT BE OF GOOD CHEER I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD.

3: TEARS

A) TEARS ACCOMPANY TRIALS AND TRIBULATION

B) JOB SAID JOB 16:20, MINE EYES POURETH OUT TEARS UNTO GOD

C) DAVID SAID I WATER MY COUCH WITH TEARS. PSALM6:6

D) THEY THAT SOW IN TEARS SHALL REAP IN JOY PSALM 126:5

POINT: ALL THE THINGS WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH, ALL THE TRIALS THE TRIBULATION, ALL THE TEARS WE SHED. ONE DAY IT WILL ALL CEASE REV 7:17 GOD SHALL WIPE AWAY ALL TEARS EVERYHTHING WE DO HERE IS PREPARING US FOR OUR ETERNAL DWELLING PLACE.

BODY: TRIUMPH

1: JOB 23:8-10

A) JOB SAID I LOOKED EVERYWHERE FOR YOU GOD

B) EVERYTIME I THINK I GOT A HOLD ON YOU YOUR GONE AGAIN

C) I CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHICH WAY YOUR GOING LORD

POINT: MANY CHRISTIANS RAECH THIS POINT IN LIFE AND GIVE UP. THEY STOP LOOKING FOR GOD THEY THINK MAN WHERE’S GOD?

2: HE KNOWETH THE WAY I TAKE

A) BUT HE KNOWETH

B) WE SEEM TO FORGET THAT AT TIMES

C) GOD KNOWS WHERE AND HOW WE ARE GOING

D) IT ALL STARTS WITH TRUSTING GOD

POINT: TRUSTING GOD ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT EVEN THOUGH YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE GOD IS GOING HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU ARE HEADING

3: THANKS BE UNTO GOD

A) 2 COR 2:14

B) OUR TRIUMPH IS THROUGH CHRIST

C) 2 COR 5:21 HE MADE HIM TO BE SIN FOR US

D) WE MAY BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM

POINT: THE BIBLE SAYS IN PSALM 47:1 SHOUT UNTO GOD WITH THE VOICE OF TRIUMPH. WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU THANKED GOD DURING THE ROUGH TIMES, YOU ACTUALLY GOT DOWN AND PRAYED TO HIM AND GAVE HIM THE HONOR HE DESERVES.

CLOSING THOUGHT: WHEN WE GO THROUGH OUR TRIALS ND TRIBULATION AND SHED TEARS WE NEVER CONSIDER ANYONE ELSE BUT OURSELVES, HOW ABOUT WHILE WE ARE ENJOYING OUR TRIUMPH WE SEEK TO HELP OTHERS DEALIGN WITH TRIALS AND BE A SHOULDER FOR TEARS TO BE SHED ON. LET’S TRY TO LET PEOPLE KNOW GOD DOES CARE AND YOU DON’T EVER HAVE TO WONDER WHERE HE’S AT!!!!!!!!
