'" BE GROUNDED "
by Pastor Tony Sutton

.Exo 32:1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
   
THE PEOPLE EXPERIENCED A PERIOD IN WHICH IT SEEMED THEY HAD NO LEADER. TWO THINGS CAN BE SEEN HERE. ONE IS THAT WHEN MOSES WAS NOT IN SIGHT, THEY FELT FORSAKEN. TWO, AARON SHOULD HAVE STEPPED UP AND BECAME THE SPIRITUAL LEADER THEY NEEDED. IT ALMOST SEEMS AS IF AARON WAS FOLLOWING MOSES INSTEAD OF GOD. ARRON SHOULD HAVE RECOGNIZED SATAN AND PUT A STOP TO THE NONSENSE IMMEDIATELY, BUT HE ALLOWED THE OVER WHELMING POWER OF THE PEOPLE TO CLOUD HIS THINKING. SATAN SENT THREE FRIENDS TO JOB TO TRY AND SWAY HIS THINKING. DON'T ALLOW PEOPLE OR CIRCUMSTANCE TO SWAY YOU, ALWAYS STAND ON THE WORD OF GOD, ALWAYS HOLD TO WHAT YOU KNOW. Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.  JUST A FEW DAYS BEFORE THIS THEY STOOD IN THAT VERY PLACED AND DECLARED TO GOD THAT THEY WOULD FOLLOW ALL THAT HE SAID. OH HOW QUICKLY WE ARE BLINDED BY CIRCUMSTANCE.
Eph 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
   
WE NEED TO BE ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN JESUS. FAITH IS A GREAT THING, AND IT WILL MULTIPLY IN US THE MORE WE EXERCISE IT. FAITH IS NOT HAVING A PLAN "B". IT IS NOT HAVING AN "ACE IN THE HOLE". FAITH IS TRUSTING IN GOD, EVEN WHEN YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE OUT THERE. HIS WORD TELLS US, THAT HE WILL NEVER LEAVE US, NOR WILL HE FORSAKE US. WHAT MORE DO WE NEED? HAS THE ALMIGHTY GOD EVER LIED TO YOU? WELL, TELL ME WHY WOULD HE START NOW? GOD NEEDS PEOPLE NOT EASILY BUFFALOED BY SATAN. ALL HE WANTS US TO DO IS JUST TRUST HIM. WHAT HAPPENS IS, PEOPLE ARE CLOSE TO GOD AND EVERYTHING IS GOING WELL. THEN IT HAPPENS, ALL THE BLESSINGS SEEM TO TURN TO PROBLEMS. THINGS START GOING WRONG. NOW YOU FIND YOUR SELF IN THE VALLEY. YOU PRAY AND PRAY AND IT SEEMS LIKE NO ONE HEARS YOU. YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD AND IT SEEMS LIKE YOU GET NOTHING FROM IT. GOD HAS FORSAKEN ME, IS THE FIRST THING THAT COMES TO MIND, WHAT HAVE I DONE WRONG? WHY IS GOD PUNISHING ME? GOD WILL NOT HEAR ME. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN THERE? I HAVE. I HAVE GOOD NEWS!!! GOD IS STILL THERE. HE IS STILL LISTENING. CONTINUE TO READ THE WORD, CONTINUE TO PRAY AND CONTINUE TO BELIEVE IN HIM. HE IS NOT GONE, JUST BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE HE IS NOT THERE DOES NOT MEAN IT IS SO!!! I KNOW HE WILL GO WITH ME EVEN TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH. HOLD ON, DON'T LET THE DEVIL FOOL YOU, DON'T GIVE UP, HE IS NEVER FAILING, AND ALWAYS ABLE!!!
