Lean on ME by Dennis Dudley

Men’s Prayer Group—September 17, 2013
LEAN ON ME

A lesson on the journey to this lesson!
Have you ever found yourself misplacing your trust?
Taking the easy way out—being lazy?
Taking a shortcut from your best direction?
Who loses the most when we do that?
Just receiving (faith without works) vs. receiving and sending (faith with works)

The author of Psalm 118:8 wrote:
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in man

• Every day we put our confidence in someone or something
• God wants to guide us here on earth and in eternity
• Have confidence in God’s eternal unchanging unfailing full-time GPS and love

In Proverbs 3:5-6, Solomon wrote:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.

• Leaning = putting your whole weight on someone or something; resting on and trusting
• God knows what is best for us—more so than we know ourselves
• Seek and trust Him completely
• Listen to and be willing to be corrected by God’s Word and wise counselors

Visit from Mike Jones of Noah Ministries

This week, the Men’s Prayer Group was blessed to have Mike Jones, Missionary to Zambia, come and provide our lesson. Mike gave us timely and straightforward Biblical instruction on how Satan wars against Christians. Mike emphasized his observations of how Christians in the United States have been deceived into compromising the faith and Biblical authority to the extent of calling evil good and good evil. He also shared stories of healings and God’s miraculous work in Zambia.
