Take what you have learned and give it away, June 27, 2010

2 Tim. 2:1-2

– everybody used of God greatly has hurt greatly

House of David’s wives:
1. Michal – name means “who is like God” or “no one is like God”
  – 1 Sam. 18:27
  – we need to fix our eyes on God, not on a negative target, but the solution
  – Nehemiah was fixed on rebuilding the walls and avoided the negativity from people trying to distract him. (Nehemiah 4:1-6:14)

2. Abigail – name means “my father is joy” (1 Sam. 25:39)
  – never forget that our Father is joy
  – don’t let the opinions of men control you mor than the opinions of God

3. Bathsheba – name means “a daughter of a vow” (2 Sam. 11:26)
  – we need to re-marry our vows

– In the times of your greatest failure, get up, bury your past, marry the present and give birth to the future

Re-marry these truths:
1. there is no one like God, no one.

2. my Father is Joy – in His presence, there’s fullness of joy

3. my God is a vow-keeper, He keeps all His promises
