Let It Go, He Is There For You

John 11:1-8

As long as you are alive, you still have things to do. What you should do is the assignment God has given you.

  • If you believe in him and you know your assignment, you will not mind hostilities.
  • Do God’s work while it is still day.

John 11:11-14

    • In your situations, the Son of God will be glorified. Many people will know the greatness of God through your situation.
    • God never sleeps nor slumbers. God is ever present, whenever we wonder where God is in our situation, let us be reminded he is ever present.
    • You can not put God in a box and expect him to think the way you think.
    • People would never see that God is working in your life if he acted on every thought of yours. People would think it is your own doing.
    • If Jesus intervened even before Lazarus got sick, we would not have the story of Lazarus today.

The Power of Relationships & Unity (Continued)

Advantages of Unity

  1. We achieve much when we are knit together.
  2. Things are done faster saving time and energy.
  3. We carry one another’s burden and the burden becomes lighter.
    • Church is a community, not just in times of trouble but all the time. We should therefore break the barriers.
    • Psalm 133:1-3
  4. Wounded hearts are healed.
      • Open up your heart and find somebody you can confide in. If someone confides in you, be trustworthy with the things people share with you.
      • In your busy schedules, find time for somebody so you can carry their burden with them.

Birthing Your Miracle

A miracle passes through a process before it is birthed.

Jesus was a miracle child but it took 9 months before he was born.

The Processes of A Miracle

  1. It begins with a seed
      • There has to be a seed for that miracle.
      • What do you have as a seed for your miracle?
      • You hold part of your miracle, it is in your hands
      • These seeds are in your home, or in your head. Some of these seeds are your thoughts, ideas. Take care about what you think.
      • Different miracles have different instructions. Instructions are part of the process, hear what God is saying.
      • Any instruction you are given, take it seriously. These instructions can be from professionals.
      • Samson’s mother was given instructions regarding her son [that he should never cut his hair etc]

Repairing The Broken Altars

1 Kings 18:17-20, 1 Kings 18:23-38

Elijah knew what his God was going to do because he served the True God

  • Even so, he took care to repair the altar.
  • Elijah waited until evening as that was the time he usually went to worship God.

“Whoever builds an altar takes ownership of that area”

  • An altar is a declaration.
  • Whoever built an altar had an encounter with God (Genesis 8:20-21).

Genesis 12:4-8

  • Abram built an altar in the land the Lord promised to give his descendants.
  • Abram built another altar in Bethel [verse 8].
  • Wherever he went, Abram built an altar to God [Genesis 13:18].
  • Wherever he built an altar, those places became significant to him and his seed.

The God In The Mountain Is The Same God In The Valley

John 15:5

  • If you know you’re connected to the True vine, it doesn’t matter where you are, what season or situation you are in, it is well.
  • If you remain connected, you can sing “It is well with my soul”
  • Our problem is we look to the people we’re connected to. Those connections are useless if you aren’t connected to the True Vine.
