WHEN I WAS AN ATHIEST!

Marilyn Adamson said —

Have you ever known someone who really trusts God? When I was an atheist, I had a good friend who prayed often. She would tell me every week about something she was trusting God to take care of. And every week I would see God do something unusual to answer her prayer. Do you know how difficult it is for an atheist to observe this week after week? After a while, “coincidence” begins to sound like a very weak argument.

WHAT I LEARN IN A CRISIS

“Why are we sitting here until we die?”            2Ki 7:3 NKJV

  • They said to themselves: “Why are we sitting here until we die?” So they took action: “They rose at twilight to go …..
  • Crisis becomes your friend, when it moves you to take action. Only when you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, will things begin to change for the better.
  • Once you take a step of faith, God will move on your behalf. The only thing that can limit Him is your doubt, your stubbornness, and your complacency.
  • His Word says, “The Lord waits that he may be gracious unto you” (See Isa 30:18).
  • When God blesses you, you can’t keep it to yourself. Others need what God has given you, and you must get it to them—on time.

HIS LOVE AND GRACE IS EXTENDED TOWARDS YOU!

GOD’S grace and love draws us to Himself.

If you have needs and burdens.  God is able to  help you.  We call upon Him, we challenge you to do the same.

“What things soever ye desire, when  ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24

 

When I made mistakes, and got into serious trouble His grace and love was extended to me.

The chorus says –Your grace and mercy brought me through, I’m living each moment because of you, I want to serve you and praise you too, your grace and mercy brought me through.

THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME –

Psalm 105:4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.

  • Only Jesus saved me with His own precious blood
  • Only God changed me — no therapy, no formula, no idea His blood changed me
  • In an instant I was changed and made righteous for the Kingdom
  • So He’s worthy of my praise…—-I give no credit to another… Only God did it.

 

TWO KINDS OF FAITH

  • There are two kinds of faith.
  • There is the natural faith.
  • But the supernatural faith is the gift of God.
  • In Acts 26:19, Paul is telling Agrippa of what the Lord said to him in commissioning him.
  • “To open their eyes, and  to turn them from darkness to light, from the power of satan  unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance  among them which are sanctified by faith that is in Me.”

Revival only comes one way!

  • humbleness
  • prayer
  • seeking God
  • turning from sin
  • Then God will hear from heaven and heal our land.
  • 2 Chron 7:14

J LEE GRADY SAID –

Racism. God’s ultimate call on our lives is to take His gospel to every person everywhere—regardless of whether they are black, brown or white; whether they have dreadlocks or tattoos; whether they are legal or illegal; whether they are veiled in burqas or wearing biker helmets; or whether they speak Spanish,Arabic, Chinese or Hindi. When we close our hearts to people because of racial, cultural or language differences, we constrict the flow of His love and become rusty pipes full of poisonous water.
