You Can't Hurry God! 3/2/16
You Can't Hurry God! 3/2/16

All we need now is a little Otis Redding- "TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS!"

Ooh, she may be weary
And young girls, they do get wearied
Wearing that same old shaggy dress, yeah
But when she gets weary
Try a little tenderness, yeah, yeah

And YES, I am well aware of the Scripture I preached in last Sunday's sermon:

Galatians 6:9 (KJV)
 
9
 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.  

BUT the sad TRUTH is that WE, as well as "young girls, WE do get weary!!!!!"

Isaiah 40:30 (KJV)
 
30  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

And I think I just answered my own question as to the WHY I am so WEARY:

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)
 
31  But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and
they shall walk, and not faint.  

WE need, WE must "wait upon the Lord!"

Too often, WE grow weary because it seems God is not listening and/or not moving fast enough, so............................

We try to "help" God or encourage God to move OR we try to go it alone!

A few, short years ago I found myself struggling mightily to build a Church "for the Lord!"

I was convinced in my heart that I had a MANDATE from God to do so and was KILLING myself in the vain attempt to "please the Lord."

In the midst of this exhausting endeavor, I had lunch with a dear friend who off-handily remarked to me,

"IF IT IS OF GOD, IT IS EASY!"

Startled, I wanted to strangle him!!!

"HMPPPHHH, what do you mean EASY!!??, I practically shouted at him!

EASY!!!??

It was years later when I finally understood the truth he spoke to me.

It IS easy when it is "OF GOD!"

2 Timothy 2:24 (KJV)
 
24  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men
, apt to teach, patient,  

"AND THE SERVANT OF THE LORD MUST NOT STRIVE!!!!"

STRIVE-middle of an apparently primary verb; to war , i.e. (figurative) to quarrel, dispute :- fight, strive.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.


Today, perhaps you find YOURSELF!?


Beloved, this FACT remains-WHATEVER you and I are attempting to do and/or accomplish:


Acts 5:39 (KJV)
 
39  But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.


"BUT IF IT BE OF GOD, YE CANNOT OVERTHROW IT!!!!!!!"


TODAY, swing for the fences, attempt great thing for and of God, KNOWING that
"IF IT BE OF GOD, YE, ME, OR ANYONE CANNOT OVERTHROW IT!!"


"YOU CAN'T HURRY GOD, O NO YOU JUST HAVE TO WAIT!


JUST GIVE HIM TIME-NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES.


HE'S A GOD, YOU CAN'T HURRY


HE'LL BE THERE DON'T YOU WORRY!


HE MAY NOT COME WHEN YOU WANT HIM BUT HE'LL BE ON TIME!!!
