Problems are your greatest opposition & greatest opportunity to overcome

What is your Struggle?

--

1 O Lord, you have examined my heart

  and know everything about me.

--


2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

  You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

--


3 You see me when I travel

  and when I rest at home.

 You know everything I do.

--


4 You know what I am going to say

  even before I say it, Lord.

--

5 You go before me and follow me.

  You place your hand of blessing on my head.

--

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

  too great for me to understand!

God Knows Me Like Google


Kids Draw:

--

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

  I can never get away from your presence!

--

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

  if I go down to the grave,[a] you are there.

--

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

  if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

--

10 even there your hand will guide me,

  and your strength will support me.

--

11 I could ask the darkness to hide me

  and the light around me to become night—

--

12   but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.

To you the night shines as bright as day.

  Darkness and light are the same to you.

--

13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body

  and knit me together in my mother’s womb.

--

14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!

  Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.

--

15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,

  as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.

--

16 You saw me before I was born.

  Every day of my life was recorded in your book.

--

Every moment was laid out

  before a single day had passed.

--

17 How precious are your thoughts about me,[b] O God.

  They cannot be numbered!

--

18 I can’t even count them;

  they outnumber the grains of sand!

And when I wake up,

  you are still with me!

God Formed Me For a Purpose

--

19 O God, if only you would destroy the wicked!

  Get out of my life, you murderers!

--


20 They blaspheme you;

  your enemies misuse your name.

--

21 O Lord, shouldn’t I hate those who hate you?

  Shouldn’t I despise those who oppose you?

--

22 Yes, I hate them with total hatred,

  for your enemies are my enemies.

--

This is My Struggle?


What is Yours ?

--

Who is the real enemy?

--

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;

  test me and know my anxious thoughts.

--

24 Point out anything in me that offends you,

  and lead me along the path of everlasting life.

--


Why does this matter and What to do

Search Me = Know My Heart

--

Test Me = Know my Thoughts

--

Lead Me = I will follow

--

What could be stake if you leave this room unchecked

--

What am I asking you to do: 


the problems are both your greatest opposition & your greatest opportunity to overcome

--

Make room for God in your life daily
