I Know What I Know What I Know


2 Tim. 1:12



For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.






What do you do when you don't understand something that is happening in your life? You have lived as righteously as you know to do. You have been faithful, yet the wicked get their way. Bad things still happen. Things that are changing are changing for the worse. Decisions are going against you. Does God care? Is he listening? What should you do? Hang in there, things are lookin' up! The Just shall live by HIS faith!!!!!!!!






Habakkuk 1:2-5



O Lord, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save!



3Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me:and there are that raise up strife and contention.



4Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.



5Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.






It is important to know, that if you have a complaint, question, anything, you need to talk to the Lord about, DO IT! DO not be afraid to talk to Jesus, worrying about how he will chastise you. He is gracious. This is a lesson that Habakkuk learned.






Sometimes in these 'crying out times' God Speaks. And it is when God speaks that the wells of ''living water' begin to flow again.






Habakkuk 2:1-4



I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.



2And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.



3For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.



4Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.






 I had a 'crying out time' one day last week.






1 Cor. 10:13



There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
















As Christ followers and cotumnimies of Christ followers (churches), we can easily adopt a tower of Babel mentality. It sounds like this – At least I’m better than she is. Our church is doing more in mission than that church. We are doing better than we did last year. Our congregation is pretty old (or poor or whatever).But how does the Lord of life and the Church see us? Perhaps Jesus wants to get in our minds with words like this. You are my child. You are created in my image. I have equipped you to successfully perform everything I have called you to do. I have chosen to use you in my global mission. No matter who you are, you can impact the world as you run with Me in ministry. This journey will cost you plenty, even your life. But you will be blessed one day to hear me whisper, “Well done, good and faithful servant…”
