Understanding God’s Purpose for Unprecedented Times
Posted by Barry Raley
  • In unprecedented times, living by faith, witnessing, and worshipping must continue even though I may not UNDERSTAND what God is up to.
  • The question that must be answered Biblically is: WHAT IS GOD DOING IN unprecedented times.
  • Our tendency is to try to understand God based on what we know about LIFE. This brings God down to the HUMAN level.
  • We must understand life based on what Scripture reveals to us about GOD. This keeps us focused on His will here on earth as it is in heaven!
  • God’s people in EXODUS had been living in Egypt, a godless place that trusted in FALSE gods. God’s people had become slaves in that culture.
  • God plans to redeem His people from slavery in an unprecedented way. He used 10 PLAGUES to set His people free.
  • God wanted His people set free for:
      • CELEBRATION
      • SACRIFICE
      • WORSHIP
      • PROMISED LAND LIVING
  • GOD is  JEALOUS for our WORSHIP … and He will use extreme times to knock down the world’s false gods.

“We are too tied to how God does things instead of simply embracing what God is doing.”

  • GOD is as serious about JOURNEY as He is destination … so commit to going THROUGH to get TO.

“WHERE WE ARE and WHERE WE NEED TO BE is directly proportional to the amount of pain we are willing to endure.” Rob Patterson, Kentucky Baptist Convention

  • GOD is always making the story about the LAMB … so whatever we do must be about Jesus.
