Sunday 26th January 2014 (Second Service)

Title - Produce Your Cause

Main Text:-  Isaiah 38: 1-5.

Bible Passages:- Dan 1:8, Isaiah 49, Jeremiah 33:3

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi.

A lawyer is somebody that goes to the court with facts. He is aware there is a plaintiff and a defendant. Both parties will have their individual lawyers.
It is likely the guilty party gets away with a crime or an offence committed if he/she has a very good lawyer.

Also, in the spiritual realm, God wants us to plead our cause before Him.

In the main text of today's reading (Isaiah 38: 1-5), although it was Hezekiah's time to die, he pleaded with God to remember how he served Him whole heartedly. Hence God answered his prayer and added 15 years to his life.

Let us break down the main text of today verse by verse:

Isaiah 38: 1
We are made to understand Hezekiah was a man that loved God with the whole of his heart yet he fell sick.
this tells us anybody sickness is something that could happen to anyone not just sinners.
King Hezekiah was so sick the bible recorded he was close to death. 
This proves that challenges will come at a stage in our lives.
Isaiah 38: 2
Hezekiah prayed to the Lord.
Although challenges will come at some stage in our lives, we must turn to God in prayer

Isaiah 38: 3.
Remember Now:
When communication with God through prayer, do you have a case to plead before Him ?
Remember the devil is an accuser of brethren
Hence you have to present yourself clean before God so the devil has nothing to use against you.

How can we make God remember us for Good ?
1. Evangelism
2.Praising God
3.Cheerful giving
4. Consecration to God Dan 1:8, Isiah 49, Jer 33:3

Isaiah 38: 4-5
This verse proves God can break  a protocol.
Even if scientist have proved there is no hope for you regarding a certain sickness or whatever situation you find yourself, remember God is more than able to break that protocol.
Put God First in everything you do and He will always be there for you.

Have a blessed week :)
