Pastor Terry Aikens - "I AM PERSUADED"



PASTOR ANN AIKENS - THE BODY OF CHRIST

PLEASE ALLOW (10-SEC) FOR VIDEO TO START.

JESUS IS A WAY MAKER

"WAY MAKER, MIRACLE WORKER PROMISE KEEPER" 

Isa 43:16 Thus says the LORD, Who makes a way through the sea And a path through the mighty waters...
From the passage above we see that God introduces Himself as The God who Makes A Way.  


 Exodus 14:13-14,21-11  With no way back and no way forward, God does what God does best - The impossible. He made a way where, naturally speaking, there was no way. ‘ Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."... Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.’ 
God is a Waymaking God and He made a way for You and Me out of bondage and into Freedom. 
In John 14:6 Jesus declared Himself to be The Way -- ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’” 
Where in your life do you need A Way provided where there seems to be No Way?  Are you only looking at what you can do in the situation or have you shifted your eyes to Jesus, the Way Maker? Jesus has a way; he’s simply waiting on you to surrender your way – for His Way so He can implement it.

OUR FATHER GIVES US SEASONS


Each season has its place and purpose in the natural order of things.







Each season has its place and purpose in the natural order of things.

Our lives revolve around time. The word translated "TIME" means "a point in time."
God has a due Season, and within any given season, there is a point in time in which God has ordained everything to happen.


The first phrase in Ecclesiastes 3:1 gives us the right perspective on Time: "To everything there is a Season, and a Time for every purpose under heaven."
The two words here--SEASON and TIME--imply duration and a point in time. Because everything has a season, nothing (at least on earth) lasts forever. God has appointed a "season" for everything. Seasons have beginnings and endings.

Every season has its place before and after another, and every season is the answer to the one having gone before and the promise of the one coming after.

Know this - Everybody goes through GOOD times and BAD times; together they make up the Season of your life. It's not the times of our lives that shape us, but the Seasons.

Don't live only for the good times; when the bad times come, and be sure they will, you won't have the strength to handle them.  And make sure you don't let the bad times destroy you. If you do, you'll loose out on all the good times God has in store for you.
Glory to God that neither Good Times nor Bad Times last; Only ETERNITY does.

1 Kings 19:12  - And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a STILL Small Voice.

If someone calls you, how do you know who the caller is? How do you distinguish from your mother, father, brother, teacher or a neighbor? You know because you know there voice. By spending time with them, you know how they talk—you know the expressions they use, the tone of their voice and the changes in their pitch when they're happy or sad. That's the way it should be with the voice of God: You know him—his character, his nature, his pleasures and displeasure you recognize him by his moving in your life.

THE PLEASURE OF HIS PRESENCE


Do you have Fullness Of Joy? If not, ask yourself, Am I In His Presence? 

Do you have difficulties in your life? Do you have stress that breeds anxiety?
How is your relationship with God?  I believe YOU cannot have fullness of joy without being in His Presence.
It’s not until you spend quality time with friends that a relationship is built. It works the same with your relationship with God.Proverbs 3:6    In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths    Acknowledging God in all we do builds relationship, and gives us access into His Presence, and leadership.   
When you are close to your Father or “in His presence” you can have a JOY that will Overcome your Troubles. Joy is different from happiness. Joy is something that lives inside of you. It is always there even Through Tough Trials. Joy is part of the Fruit of the Holy Spirit
Wherever you are and whatever is going on around you, you can choose to be In His Presence and know His Fullness of Joy.

  Proverbs 14:34 - Righteousness Exalteth a Nation: but sin is a reproach to any people”. 



Notice in the verse  Proverbs 14:34 - Righteousness Exalteth a Nation: but sin is a reproach to any people”. is not a past or future condition, but it is a current evaluation of our plight.

The verse does not say that our past Righteousness Will Exalt us today or tomorrow,nor does it say that Our Current Sin will one day in the distant future be a reproach.
 No, the tense is clear that the righteousness of a nation Exalts Now, and likewise the Sin of a Nation is a Reproach Now.

 And we are not given a middle ground
A nation is either one or the other, but not both. 
We can choose Our Own way or God’s way, but Not Both. We can ascend into the Mountain of God or descend into the valley of DRY BONES, but not both.

And this leaves us with a choice that a nation, no matter what era they are birthed,or how many bloodstained battlefields for righteous causes, Raises or Falls by WHO IT IS, BY WHAT IT DOES Today.

TO EVERY STORM FORMED - "PEACE BE STILL"

The second named storm of the Pacific hurricane season grew into a Category 4 storm off Mexico's Pacific coast on This Week.
The National Hurricane Center said in its advisory that Hurricane Bud is packing sustained winds of 130 mph, and is centered about 350 miles south-southeast of Cabo San Lucas at the tip of the Baja peninsula, moving northwest at 7 mph. 





We pray a wall of protection this hurricane season against all violent storms that would come near the East Coast. 
We pray that every hurricane tracking to the East Coast be turned around at sea to wither and die in Jesus Name. 


We pray the same hedge of protection over the chain of islands in the Atlantic.
 We speak into the atmosphere over the Atlantic “Peace Be Still” that it will be a season of unusual calm and quietness in Jesus name.

WE HAVE SO MUCH INSIDE OF US, BUT OFTEN WE DO SO LITTLE WITH IT. 



Have you ever noticed how sometimes the smallest thing can set you off and cause you to stress out?  For Christians, there shouldn’t be any reason for us to lose our peace.
 Remember, no matter what we are facing Ephesians 3:20, , “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”  He can turn any situation around.
 We should be looking inwardly for our external power.  Because 1 John 4:4, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is Greater than he who is in the world.”  

Our ability to cope, to have mercy, to love and show grace comes from within us where Christ is residing.

 With God in us, we should never let the devil cause us to have a BAD DAY.  Anytime we’re facing tests and trials, we can choose not to worry or stress about it.  If anyone in the world should be happy, it should be us!  Because our Joy and Happiness are powered by an internal presence—Christ living in us—and not external circumstances.

Life will be tough at times.  We live in a real world with a real devil.  But we have to learn not to look at our circumstances.  When things are tough, instead of focusing on what is surrounding us,  FOCUS ON THE GREATER ONE WHO IS IN YOU.
