LOSING A BATTLE WITHOUT LOSING A LIFE
Proverbs 18:10
Fight with God or fight against God Pride puts God against you, humility puts God with you God has no battles, no enemies, we do We waste energy fighting God instead of devil Fighting people is waste of time. Fighting a skunk. You can’t throw dirt without getting hands dirty You would not win every battle Goal in basketball is not to win every quarter but to win the game Whoever wins at the end wins the battle Finish strong, it’s not how you start, but how you finish…in running, finishing not starting… Judas started, and quit. Hitler wanted to be priest. Stalin & Carl Marx began in seminary Jesus had small beginnings, Moses started small, kingdom of God starts small..Joyce Meyer Jesus finished…He said, it is finished!!! We are looking unto Him… How to lose your battle without losing your life? Hiding from God or hiding in God. You can’t hide from God. You can’t outrun God. Adam hid from God, David hid in God…Jonah run from God, prodigal son ran to God Before taking off, exit doors; building has to have exit sign before fire starts Where to escape when accident happens. A. TENT – it’s weak hiding place, it’s weaker than you. Place Go to place where God is not where people are God’s name is stronger than you B. FRIEND – she was a friend – so called Person Acceptance is open door for influence, we let out guards down…Ryan story… We are killed by dagger of friends, and come to Jesus by their hand They are instruments in God’s hands and weapons in the hands of the enemy Friends brought men to Jesus. Amnon friend brought him to his grave Friends have knifes God got your back…no armor for the back…for friends or God… C. ARMOR Practice Don’t go to sleep without the armor Don’t take your armor off after the defeat, don’t give the enemy your armor Jacob tired verses Samson tired lost his hair in sleep. Farmer had enemy sow tares in sleep Salvation, Righteousness, Peace, Truth, Faith, Word – Don’t give it away after you’ve fallen
