2/12/13 NBCC Church Revival Day #1 Pastor Sheryl Brady, The Potterís House Church, Texas =The Lord is Stirring Us Up for a Reason Deuteronomy 32:9-12
In Genesis God told Moses his plan for mankind. God alone is God. He knows who he is. He is God. He is an absolute God and if he worked for your mama, he will work for you! God talks to us and communicates to us. He is a talker. He spoke until everything came into existence. God talked until everything was made and done. We can talk our way out of our mess. Speak the Word! Everything has to listen to God! God doesnít need any matches. He is fire all by himself! God will talk us thru our mess. He is God and thatís all there is to it. He was here before us and will be here long after us. We didnít vote him in and we cannot vote him out. God is the Great I Am!
I Am that I Am!
When God spoke, grass began to grow, birds began to fly. At the end of each day, he stepped back and looked at what he had created and said ďthatís goodĒ. God praised himself! Everything up until the sixth day was spoken into existence. But on the sixth day, God had to touch something to make man. God touched the dust, the dirt and made Adam. Later, God told Adam to lie down so He could pull Eve out of him. Adam didnít know what he had inside of him until God told him and took out Eve.
God is a moving, intervening God. He will step in between you and the car accident. The Spirit of God moves in to help us. God sat down on the earth to hatch something in it. God sits on us and moves on us to have us hatch a change in our lives. We can get up and keep going on in the name of Jesus!
God needs to brood over our life and stirs over us. God takes the reign over our life. The treasure inside of us comes out of us. God sits on us like a hen and brings out something else in us. Let God brood, brood over our life. He is hatching something on the inside of us. He knows how much pressure and heat to apply to us to get what s in us out. God enlarges our capacity, stretches our mind until we see ourselves coming into our purpose! He will pull every gift in us out! God will speak until darkness has to back up out of our life!
The entrance of the Word brings light. Suddenly we can see. The Word turns on the light to expose the objects in our life. We see what we would have tripped over a year ago. We now step around it! Around it! We need God and his Word! Sit on us Jesus! Sit on our flesh! Sit on our attitudes! We are all full of potential and we donít need to kiss up to nobody! God will open doors in our life and hook us up with the right people to bless us. God will have people who donít like us to give us money! And bless us! God chose us to make it!
**Eagles Do for their little Eaglets like God Does for Us**
1) He Shields You:
We shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty God. God protects us thru stuff and isolates us from stuff. He keeps the full blunt of what it is from knocking us down. God is our shield! He will hold us up when the world wants to tear us down. God keeps us from seeing certain stuff and from hearing certain stuff. He keeps us from danger seen and unseen! God shields us. We are under the shadow of El Shadi!
2) He will Unsettle Us a Little Bit:
When God senses that we have gotten lazy and comfortable, he will make us uncomfortable in the place that was comfortable! What used to be okay is not okay anymore. God is stirring up the nest of our life. Something is poking us and getting on our nerves. There is a purpose behind unsettling us.
3) He will Shove Us - Push Us:
God wants to educate us by shoving us out of our comfort zone. He loves us and will shove, push us beyond our boundaries and resources. The purpose is to push us out of complacency because there are things we can do that we donít know we can do. These are things we donít know that we have the power to do them ourselves! If we fall and donít yet do it ourselves, God will swoop down and pick us up before we go splat on the ground. God will pick us up!
4) He will Turn Around and Support Us:
When we should have gone crazy, it is God that holds our mind together. He comes in and supports us and holds us together. God helps us not lose our mind. Jesus supports us. Pray about it. We can fly! We can touch the sky!
