Men's Monday Message: When Trouble Comes

Good Morning mighty men of valor...

The Word of God says that there will be times when we will have trouble, challenges, calamity, bad stuff that we will have to deal with.

Jesus too, but He said to be of good cheer as He overcame the world... the bad stuff.

So, here's the question....

What do you do when crap happens? (crap is a Greek word that means bad stuff).

How do you react or respond?

Do you go on the attack or disengage?

It is my experience that most people would respond by praying... a good place to start but God gives us other weapons, too. (Eph 6).

Here's a list of some... you may have more...

·       Pray – Mat 7:7 (A) [Ask, seek, knock]

·       Praise​ (Ps 95)

·       Repent – Act 3:19, Ro 2:4 

·       Believe – Gen 15:6 [righteousness] Mk 5:36 [Fear not] Mat 9:29 (Faith)

·       Surrender – 1Tim 1:4

·       Stand – Eph 6:10-17

·       Go to​/respond with the Word – Mat 4:1-11

·       Counsel/Share – Pro 11:14

·       Speak Right – “put a watch over my mouth”​ (Ps 141)

·       Sacrifice – Phil 3:8-14

I believe all these tools really have only 2 purposes.....

To build my faith... and to establish a righteous motive in my heart.

In other words, to get me and you in a place to receive God's love.

Think about it and let me know if you agree.  

​Strength and Honor, but Only for His Glory,
