God Thinking XCII - Question Of The Heart 9

"The next time they all get up and go pray for somebody, I am going to walk right out the door.  Shouldn’t they keep their problems to themselves?

Actually, every subject that we are discussing is to deal with different types of rebellion.  One of the most dangerous kind of rebellion is to create a situation where you put God on trial.

You haven’t left much room for a move of God if you pre-plan your experience with God.

God demands that you submit your will to his will, not the other way around.  Learning to be softened and pliable is a great part of your Sunday worship experience.  If we are hard and rigid, you become like the Pharaoh of Egypt, who would not yield to God. 

Even after ten plagues the Pharaoh still held out in rebellion to God.  If you are that hardened inside the sanctuary, what are you at home where those who love you the most have to tip-toe around you and act like everything is OK. 

One thing you should know, you are always going one way or the other - either closer to or further away from God.

As far as Christians keeping their problems to themselves, that is not God’s plan.  The Bible says, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.    James 5:16
