Facing a Crisis Part 4

Facing A Perceived Crisis Part 4 Lesson Objective: This is the fourth and final lesson on Facing A Crisis. This lesson concludes with the actions that should be taken by a Christian when facing a perceived crisis. Scripture: Then the Levites of the children of the Kohathites and of the children of the Korahites stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel with voices loud and high. And they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, "Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established. Believe His prophets, and you shall prosper." And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: "Praise the Lord, For His mercy endures forever." (2 Chronicles 20: 19-21) Review STEP ONE REPLACING FEAR WITH FAITH STEP TWO: RISE UP TO SEIZE YOUR DESTINY STEP THREE: REFOCUS YOUR ATTENTION STEP FOUR REJECT REASON FOR REVELATION STEP FIVE: RESPOND IN OBEDIENCE STEP SIX REVERSE THE CURSE Replacing fear with faith Fear acronym False Evidence Appearing Real Faith acronym For Anything Impossible Trust Him Rise up to seize your destiny Refocus on God Not being distracted by the crisis Seeking God for who he is Reject reason for Revelation (facing a perceived crisis) Not seeing with our physical eyes Respond in Obedience What causes us not to obey God’s instruction Disbelief (Hebrews 3:17-19) Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief. (Mark 16:14) Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. (1 John 5:10) He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son. Obey God (James 1:22-25) But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. REVERSE THE CURSE(2 Chronicles 20:25) When Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away their spoil, they found among them an abundance of valuables on the dead bodies, and precious jewelry, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away; and they were three days gathering the spoil because there was so much. Perceived Crisis changes from curse to blessing Thunderstorm becomes a rainbow Ester 7: 9-10 And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified .D. Summary There is no crisis too big for God How we react to the perceived crisis will determine the final result Replace fear with victory through FAITH
