Genuine And Joyful From The Inside Out

#17 - WHEN GOD DOESN'T SEEM TO BE DOING ANYTHING

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
James 5:7 - 12

#17 in the series "James - Soundness Of Soul"

James is a realist. He's given everything from exhortation, to instruction, to warning in his letter. Now he's wrapping up. In the remainder of the letter he's going to deal with seasons when you don't see God working. You're hurting. Perhaps you're being mistreated. You're crying out to the Lord of Hosts. But none of the hosts seem to be doing anything (5:7-12). That's the first thing James is going to talk about. Then he's going to talk about the prayer life of the church (5:13-20). 



There's a reason James closes his letter with these two issues. Right away, I'm taught two important truths. First, not everything will happen as quickly as I think it should in my walk with the Lord in this fallen world. And second, I do not have the strength, in and of myself, to be all Jesus wants me to be until He comes. It takes more than will-power. It takes prayer.
