7 January 2001
Moses came to understand that because of manís sin few would live out their full lives on this earth - Psalm 90:7-12
Moses also recognized that unless God makes us glad, it is all down hill - Psalm 90:13-17
TO DWELL IN THE SECRET PLACE OF GOD IS TO BE IN HARMONY WITH GOD - Psalm 91:1-16
NOT BEING CONTENT IS THE ORIGIN OF ALL SIN! Isaiah 14:12-14
The following emotions are birthed in a soul that is not content, but very troubled!
6. GRIEF! Psalms 6:7; 31:9-17
7. SORROW! Genesis 42:36-38; Job 17:1-16; Psalm 18:1-6
A victim is a person who is hurt as a result of other people sinning. Hagar was a victim; she had no choice; she was a slave and she was forced to do whatever her owner wanted. Hagar was sexually abused - Genesis 16:1-3, she became pregnant and then Sarai became angry with her - Verses 4-6. But the Lord met Hagar in the desert and told her TO GO BACK AND FORGIVE Abram and Sarai. Verses 7-16
The heartache for Hagar was not yet over in her earth life, she was going to be driven away from the father of her son - Genesis 21:9-21
God bestowed honor upon Ishmael, who together with Isaac came together and buried Abraham, their father. And God did bless Ishmael with a family and gave him a life span of 137 years. Genesis 25:8-19
Because of sin in this world, LIFE IS NOT FAIR! Genesis 3:16-19
Jesus came to deal with sin - Isaiah 53:1-8; and to destroy the works of the Devil. Acts 10:38; 1John 3:8
To be healed from GRIEF and SORROW, we must open our hearts (souls) to God, and release all bitterness, anger, rage, jealousy, envy and coveting, and then let him come in and clean out the stinking spiritual cancer.
STEP ONE: Acknowledge your situation and accept that was has happened might not have been fair, but it is over, done with, and cannot be changed! Romans 9:10-23
As long as you kick against God, you have put yourself above God. If you complain how things are going, you are saying that God didn't do it well enough; you could do it better.
STEP TWO: Rejoice in your salvation and thank God for redeeming you and making something beautiful of the rest of your life! Romans 8:28-39; 11-18
Release the past and thank God for
what He is doing in your life.
