    Valley Praise
    Series: Bible Study

    Psalm 62:1-2; 63:1-8; 34:1

    - It's easy to praise God when we're on the mountaintop. It emanates from a place of joy.

    - Valley praise is different. There are shadows of death in the valley.  Disappointments sorrow, troubles.

    - If the God of the mountaintop is worthy of praise so is the God of the valley.

    - A valley praise is more authentic than a mountaintop praise. A valley praise comes in spite of.

    - God gives power to those that receive,

    - Jesus is given as a gift. But if we do not receive it, it doesn't matter.

    - Sometimes we mistake certainty for faith.

    - Faith is active even when we don't know.

    - The answer will not be found where we are, that's why Jesus says go.

    - The go and see for us is in our heart.

    Series: Bible Study

    Luke 9:10-12; Proverbs 4:23; Romans 8:29; 1 John 2:6

    - Jesus looked beyond His own needs and met the needs of the people.  The disciples did the opposite.

    - The disciples did not think of helping the people and did not even have the thought of asking Jesus.

    - What action did we take in response to the need? Who did we do it for?

    - We're not talking about the head, we're talking about the heart.

    - We're talking about actions, and not intentions.

    - Don't stop at the intention.

    - We can help those in need, our loved ones and strangers.

    - Undivided attention.   Full attention on the task at hand.

    - Multi-tasking is divided attention.

    - If we are going to get to a place of compassion, we need to have undivided attention.

    - The disciples walked with Jesus, yet still weren't walking like Him. We can do the same thing if our attention is divided.

    - If we say we abide in Christ, then we need to walk like Him.

    Series: Bible Study

    Matthew 14:13-21, Mark 6:31-32, Luke 9:10-11

    - Sometimes we get in the way and block the blessings in our life.

    - Unforgiveness is a great blocking blesser.

    - Doubt and unbelief is another blocking blesser.

    - Jesus wanted to be alone. He was tired, he was sad, he was hungry and a huge crowd followed him.

    - Sympathy keeps on going, compassion stops and helps.

    - We are blessed when we imitate God.

    - God looks at us with a heart of compassion and a heart of mercy.

    - We think in terms of what works for us.

    - Problems don't come at your convenience.  They show up announced, uninvited.

    - We now have the ability to ward people off.

    - As long as we live off of convenience, we are going to miss operating with God's compassion.

    - We can't do "me". We have to do "Jesus."

    - We have to stay connected to God.
