Life Happens pt 3

Jesus maintained a perfect attitude in every situation. He prayed
about everything and worried about nothing. His attitude was
never to become defensive or discouraged. His goal was to
please the Father rather than to achieve His own agenda.

In the midst of trials, He was patient.
In the midst of suffering, He was hopeful.
In the midst of blessings, He was humble.
In the midst of ridicule, abuse, and hostility, He made no threats
and did not retaliate.

PSALMS 30:11-12 AMP
11 You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, 12 That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

Romans 8:28 NKJV
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Acts 16:25 NKJV
25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.

Suddenly, a violent earthquake hit the foundations of the prison.
Immediately, all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains
were loosed.

As a result of their praise and worship, they saw a whole family
believe on Jesus Christ as Lord.

People are watching our worship and praise in the midst of
horrible circumstances.

Matthew 9:20-22 NKJV
20 And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment. 21 For she said to herself, “If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.” 22 But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And the woman was made well from that hour.

This woman had a sudden miracle. But notice: she knew Jesus
was the answer to her physical problem. She voiced it with her
mouth and she believed that, if she could just touch Him, she
would be made well, so she made an effort to touch Him.

When life happens, we Americans can be very impatient. We
tend to immediately want our miracle. If we are in pain, we want
it gone now. If we’re dealing with heartache, we want it fixed

God’s sudden intervention is not always going to operate on our

There may be some things that God needs to take out of us and
put into us during times of struggle.

When the fullness of preparation meets the fullness of time, it
results in the atmosphere where “suddenlies” come to pass.

Today, we are surrounded by people who have endured
hardships beyond imagination to serve God and to experience
their own “suddenly” as the fullness of their preparation meet
the fullness of time.

When “suddenly” comes, it erases the weariness of the previous

Matthew 8:2-3 NKJV
2 And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” 3 Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

Let’s worship Jesus and seek His face.
Let’s tell Him that we know He’s able… that suddenly we can
be healed…
That suddenly, we can find a wife or husband…
That suddenly, we can find a job…
That suddenly, that friend or family member will give their heart
to Christ…

Make sure that, if we have not received our “suddenly” miracle,
it’s not because of you talking yourself out of a miracle,
complaining, having a bad attitude, refusing to worship, refusing
to speak in agreement with God’s word, or refusing to forgive

If our focus, our attention, or our prayers are always about our
need, we will lose our focus on Jesus.

Revelation 22:12 NKJV
12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.

Revelation 22:20 NKJV
20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
