Father in Heaven, thank you so much for this time together. Thank you Lord for the beautiful Sabbath day. Thank you for Fellowship. Thank you for friends and family. Thank you Lord for the Ministry of your Holy Spirit. And we pray a lot that you would Grace US with your presence this morning because you are the one that inspired the words that were about to read me and spy, our Hearts and minds. Illuminate help US to understand Lord, what it truly means to live by every word this morning. You guide US. Oh Lord, we pray in Jesus' name. Amen. In Matthew chapter 4 and verse 4, this is where the sermon title is taken from this morning. A famous text meth you fall for, but he answered and said it is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeded with out of the mouth of God. You know the Word of God. It, it accomplishes 2 things. 1st, it gives US the pathway on how we should live or what we call instruction. And secondly, it also gives US the power to carry out the instruction. Let's look at that 1st part. What is this instruction? And how does the Bible when it gives US this instruction, What is it talking about? You see, in fact, the Bible is God's love letter to every one of US on how to live. It's how he's communicated his love to US, even in this day, just as I instruct my kids on how to live a better life sleeping early. Making sure you don't touch the oven when it's Hot on making sure that you shower properly or take regular showers. God has left for US His Word and His instruction on how to live. And it says in John Chapter 10 verse 10. The thief comes not but for to steal and to kill and to destroy. I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly. Jesus, he came to give US abundant life. And so the instruction that God has given to US is calculated in such a way to give US abundant life, the best life that we can have, not only in the future immortal life when Jesus comes for a 2nd time. But even the life that we are to live on this Earth right now in this atmosphere, in the Air that we are breathing. Jesus, he is that word. That gives life and it's Jesus that gives US instruction to US. It is his word as if he himself was standing there speaking to each and every one of US. But furthermore, in Proverbs Chapter 30, verses 5 and 6 look at what the Bible says here. Every word of God is pure is what it is pure and it is a shield to them that put their Trust in him. Add not under his words, lest you reprove the and that will be found a liar. Every single word of God is pure. It is blessing to US, it is something that is to make US better and never worse. And so no religion doesn't make people worse. Its people that are Christians, that claim to be Christians, that don't have the Word of God in their lives that are purified by the Word of God. They claim to be Christians and they are the ones that start the wars. It is not religion that starts wars, it's not religion that makes people bad. The Farriss, they were in a good position then they should have been good men, but they didn't have the Word of God that was pure. And not only that, it's meant to be a shield to US. It protects US. It's God's watch care over US. But yet it comes with a warning there. It says what do not add to these words. We've got to be careful that we don't add to the Word of God. This is what makes it impure. This is where God's protection is taken away from US. And even in Revelation 22, it says something even more. For I testify under every man that you're with the words, Revelation 2218 and 19, that here at the words of the prophecy of this book. If any man shall add on to these things, God shall add on to him. The plagues that are written in this book, And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life and out of the Holy city. And from the things which are written in this book, it's not that God is angry with US when we obey God disobeyed when we add to it or take away from it. Look, friends, you've got to look at the Word of God like a map, a road map to where it's a life to a good life 1st here on this Earth. But it turn a life in the future. A map that leads US to Jesus. A map that if we want to live by, we got to follow it. If it tells US to turn left, Let's make sure we turn left and even in this day and age when we look at the maps on Google always. Yeah, they make, they make mistakes here and there, but, you know, sometimes they will take you to tell you to take a different way. Wait, even though in Malaysia, I know the roads. I still follow the map because sometimes you don't know where there's going to be traffic Jam or not. You're going to be stuck In the traffic Jam and waiting that you don't know whether that an accident took place. You see? So as much as we rely on a map to get from a to b., we need to rely on the Word of God to take US from Earth up to Heaven, friends, we got to be careful, otherwise we're going to be lost. Continuing in Matthew chapter 7 and verse $13.14, enter Ye in at the Strait gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that lead US to destruction. And many of their b. which go in there at because Strait is the gate and narrow is the way we should lead a 1000 to life. And few there be that find it here in Matthew we see 2 gates, a broad one and a straight one. And there is clear instruction that if we wish to enter into internal life, we got to enter through the Strait gate. It's narrow, but it leads to eternal life. They'll be few that find it, meaning that there will be few that he'd the instruction that is given to say Walk This Way and follow this path. This gate. It's not hidden, It's right there in plain sight. It's just that many will choose a different path. They will choose what they think is better contrary to what Jesus has instructed. You see friends, Jesus is this gate. When it says you got to enter in at the Strait gate, we've got to come through Jesus Christ. Look at this. John Chapter 10 versus 7 through 9. Therefore, Jesus said again, verily, truly, Very, truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep all who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved, they will come in and go out and find pasture. There will be many that will choose Hunter to Jesus. Yes. Even well meaning Christians, even those that go to church or maybe even those that are listening to this live stream here this morning. But friends, how do we do that? How do we choose contrary to Jesus', look, as we enter in through the Strait gate that leads to eternal life, we enter in through Jesus Christ, right? He's the one that gives life. But how is it that many reject him? Surely we're saying probably in our Hearts of Jesus was standing right here this morning. I wouldn't reject him. I wouldn't be like the fairy seas that crucified Jesus and put him on the Cross. It's so clear, Jesus was God, I would have chosen him. But many, even today are repeating the mistakes of the Pharisees. How do we reject Jesus Christ and reject it going in through the straight and narrow gate and choose a broad gate that leads to destruction? How is that possible? Well, what else gives life apart from going in through the Strait gate and following Jesus Christ? What else gives life, John 539, search the scriptures. For in them you think you have eternal life and they are they which testify of me, friends. What is it that gives life? It is none other than the scriptures. The Bible, the Word of God. If we are to enter in through that Strait gate and choose that narrow path, we got to enter in by Jesus Christ. That's how we get to turn a life. But what gives US eternal life, here is the Word of God. And so how do we reject Him? How do we reject Jesus Christ by rejecting his word by rejecting the counsel that has been given to US the instruction. But how you see the Bible is full of all types of instruction. Well, the 10 Commandments are clear. You know, that's clear instruction, don't do this and don't do that, right? But do you know that there's much, much more in the Bible in terms of instruction that is given to US beyond the 10 Commandments? Let me show you just a few little passages here and there. You'll be amazed about the depth to which the Bible teaches US how to live. It's not just not stealing from each other, not killing each other and not committing adultery going to see each other. There is much instruction that the Bible gives US beyond just the 10 Commandments. Let's go to the 1st Exodus Chapter 15 and verse $26.00. And said of that will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord, thy God and will do that, which is right in his sight, and will give ear to his Commandments, and keep all his statutes. I will put none of these diseases upon the which I have brought upon the Egyptians for I and the Lord that heal, earthy. God gives US instruction on health. If we learn to follow him, he will put the disease upon US. So there is something there in the Bible that teaches US how to live about health. Leviticus 11 being one of them about the clean, unclean meat. There is instruction. And that instruction is calculated to give US good life, abundant life. And many choose to go in a different direction. Are you following me? What I'm trying to get out this morning? Let's continue problems 31 verse 10, who can find a virtuous woman for her price is far above rubies. In the Bible, there is instruction on choosing the right partner in life, especially here for men. What sort of woman? You should chicken you should choose and for woman, what sort of woman you should be. You see that? Furthermore, in problems 22 verse 6 train a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it. There is instruction on how to train our children. Don't spare the Rod, no matter what country you're living in. Yeah, it seems like in some countries, especially Western ones, they say you do that, you're abusing your child, but friends, it doesn't matter. Follow the Bible. There's clear instruction on how to train up our children. Make sure you teach them the 10 Commandments. Make sure you teach them about God. Make sure you have family worship. You see this so much Instruction that is given in the Word of God. And then in the very next verse, verse 7. The rich rule Earth over the poor and the borrower is servant to the lender. It teaches US about finance. So we can find in the Bible all sorts of way on how to live. It teaches US to make sure you never take out loans, something I wish I knew earlier in life. And then there's also 1st time of the $29.00 in like manner also, that woman Dawn themselves in modest apparel with shame face Ignace. And so bra it see. Not with broad hair or gold or pearls or costly or a friend's. There's even instruction on how to dress. In the Bible, we find at every turn, instruction and counsel on HOL, we should live. It even teaches US about construction. Don't build your House on sand, build it upon Rock. Yes, there's a spiritual application there, but there is a literal application as well. Make sure you don't build your House on shifting sand. So look in all of this, you must remember that God, he's not trying to make your life miserable. He's not given this instruction to make you miserable. No. In fact, it's contrary. He's trying to give you up Blunden life, but many of US we don't look at it that way, do it. But he's trying to, to give US the best health, the best marriage, the best way to manage your finances. So you don't have to be stressed out every single month and live paycheck to paycheck. He's trying to give US the best family. He's trying to give US the best business practices, peace in your Hearts, so you can sleep well at night. It's all calculated to give US abundant life, Joy and happiness and fulfillment even in this life, and also life in the future to come Friends. This is the intention of God in giving US his word. And to many of US, we look at contrary all I just got obey this. If I want to go to Heaven. And so when we begin to make comparisons, we go, Oh, I have a good life, you're a better life. I can imagine having a better life in Heaven. I have a mansion, I have many cars. I have people that serve me. I don't have to worry about food or clothing or shelter. Why this life seems better, but friends, it's not about just making you obey it, but God wants to give you something even better. Many people, they think they have a good life, even though they have all these things they financially free. But they're miserable. Maybe their families are falling apart even though they have millions of dollars in the Bank account. Friends, this is not God's thoughts just to make US miserable. It's quite opposite. Jeremiah 29, verse 11, for I know the thoughts that I think towards you say the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end God's thoughts toward US, our thoughts of peace. It's good thoughts and those thoughts are written down in the Word of God. Furthermore, he says and problems 1028. The hope of the righteous shall be Gladness. Psalms 14415. Yeah, a happy is that people whose God is the Lord and then Nehemiah chapter and verse 10, then he said into them, go your way, eat the fat and drink the sweet and send portions under them for whom nothing is prepared for this day. Is Holy unto the Lord. Neither be sorry for the Joy of the Lord is your strength. He wants US to have thoughts of peace because that's what he has to. What's US, he wants US to be happy. He wants US to have Joy. He wants US to have hope, he wants all these good things for US. That's why he writes it down for every single one of US. He says, Rejoice in the Lord always. And again, I say, rejoice. But many of US, I know, I look to that this way before we look at the Word of God as optional. It's something that's just counsel like you go to someone and, and you listen to what they have to say and go, let me go back and wait This opinion. And that's what we take God's word to US. But friends, even we look at the 10 Commandments that way. Do you know that it's optional when the Bible says, Thou shalt not lie well, well with my family struggling and so of needing to survive, I'm going to lie and cheat and steal. Isn't it? Even though the Bible says we should keep the Sabbath, but it's all Ok to break it just this once, just to get out of school and then when you're done isn't it? We look at the word as optional and beyond even the 10 Commandments. Always definitely optional about health and about loans and finances and, and, and all these things are and who to marry, you know, God, there's no girl in my, my church that is worthy of marriage or that are not even my age. So that's why I got to go out and look at other people. That's why I got to be an equally yoked. And we look at this as just good counsel. And Oh, well, you know, I just got to be strong and make sure I work on my marriage to make it successful. Even though God tells US the best advice. But we say things like, it's not relevant to US today in this day and age how they lived back. Then you see back then it was easier. Israelites married Israelites, they were all one nation, but US were all scattered throughout the World now. So hard we we make God's word just good counsel and optional to be followed. Remember, we are studying about living by every word by every word, not just the 10 Commandments, but every word that has been written down. And God, you got to remember, he wants to give US Joy. He wants to give US peace. He wants to give US Gladness. He wants to give US happiness. But how We read this text before, John 1317. If you know these things happy are Ye. If you do them, you see friends, happiness is not just found in the knowing. It's not just found in instruction, just reading it and go Ok. I know the Word of God. In fact, if we leave it just there, much misery will be found much unhappiness will be found because our carnal Hearts know it. But we don't like to do it. That's what it says in Romans $87.00. The carnal mind is enmity. It's an enemy against God. For it is not subject to the law of God. Neither indeed can be. We've got to get to the point of doing, of applying. So as we read the Word of God and take it, not just as counsel, but knowing that God has best in mind for US, we've got to learn to apply it. We got to do it. We got to make sure that it becomes real in our lives. This is the key, the true and real key to happiness. Because too many of US 7th Day Adventists and Christians out there, we know much about the Word of God. But many of US were not living it. And so how do we get to that point? That's a 2nd part of what I mentioned right at the very beginning. You see the word of God. It gives US instruction, but it's also full of power to help US to do it as well. Not only does it give US instruction, not only does it tell US what is the best recipe for a good life and a fulfilled life and a happy life. But in those words that you read. In those words that you see in the Bible, that is giving you instruction on what to do. It contains the very power that will help you to do it as well. It gives US power. Not just telling US what to do. Look at this 2nd Peter chapter one and verse 4, where by are given unto US, exceeding great and precious promises that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature. Having escaped the corruption that is in the World through lost friends, God has given US great and exceeding precious promises. It will enable US to become partakers of the divine nature. The very words that you read when you look at it as instruction, the Word of God, For example, the 10 Commandments. It tells US not to do this and not to do than to make sure we honor our parents. Things we do and we shouldn't do. But we look at it as commands, something we have to do in order to go to Heaven, not words that are given to US so that you can have a good life, an abundant life, and a happy life. But friends, I want you to change your focus when you look at the 10 Commandments. Not only are the 10 commands, but because it came from the Word of God. They are also 10 promises. In those 10 Commandments. Are wrapped up exceeding great promises. They are 10 promises and just as Jesus said that he promised right there that you can do these 10 Commandments, not by our own strength, but in the strength of Jesus Christ, which is found in the Word of God. And look, Jesus is not going to give US something and tell US something to do. When he knows it's impossible for US to do it impossible in our own strength, but very much possible in the strength of Jesus Christ. I can do all things. I can do all the 10 Commandments through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. God, He gives US the power to do it. Where in the same place he gives US the instruction. Look at this, Romans $116.00, for I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto Salvation to everyone that believeth to the Jew 1st, and also to the Greek. Every word of God, The Gospel of Christ is not just a building a command, but it is an enabling. It is also something that gives US strength to do it. The very same word which told you what to do, gives you the same power to do it. Of course, with men, it's impossible. But with God, all things are possible and happy you. If you do it, you see when Jesus went up to the paralytic and said men take your bed, get up and walk. That was a command. But when he listened to the Word of God and that command, he believed it because Jesus said he could walk. And so as he bent all the energies of his mind to do that, which God asked him or Jesus asked them to do, he was healed. And so as we look at the Word of God and say, Oh don't lie and we Bend all the energies of a mind to not lie because we believe what God said. We are able to stop lying. Not because anything good in US, not because the power of my mind was so good, but I believed you see in Romans 116 at the very end. There's a condition to every one that believeth God has given US precious instruction. How much do we believe it? How much do we accept it? Then it goes to the agree, how much we are able to apply it and do it happy are you? If you do it, instruction that is given to bless US, to Prosper, US, look at what it says here. In 2nd Chronicles 2020, And they rose early in the morning and went forth into the Wilderness of Tacoma. And as they went forth, Josh effect stood and said, Hear me old Judah and you and habitants of Jerusalem. Believe in the Lord, your God. So shall you be established. Believe his prophets. So shall Ye Prosper. Friends, you want to be established. You want to be prospered. You've got to believe in the Lord your God. You've got to believe in the prophets. The ones who wrote down what God told them to write the prophets, who wrote the Bible, we got to learn to believe every word of God. And we've got to learn to live by every word of God. Friends. How much does the Word of God guide your life throughout the week? I mean, how many hours a day does the Bible tell you what to do? Do you stop there and think about that? Rather than just, I have devotion, I go out the door and then I go to work. I go to study. But how much hours, how much of your day does God guide you? His word guide you in eating, in drinking, in dressing, in working in, sleeping, in, praying, in playing everything in our lives should be guided and molded and leading US by the Word of God. How much time do you spend thinking about the Word of God and how it should guide you on Tuesday or on a Wednesday? How many of US we, we just go to church and we listen to a sermon, you know? And we hear all this instruction that is given to US, you know, don't lie, don't steal, and those things that are well and good. But the idea of letting God guide you with His word and through His Word to the very minute of our lives every minute. Every moment, this is a very rare concept. Do you see that friends? How much does the Word of God actually guide US in everything that we do from the, from the, our business decisions to our course of study, everything, to how we dress everything, you know, friends, God, he's in the business of healing, of giving US abundant life. Of protecting US, of giving US a happy life of giving US of fulfilling life, a life of satisfaction, a life of peace, a life that is a blessing to everyone around US, including our families and our friends. Do you Trust them? Do you really Trust him in every word that is written there in the scriptures? I want to share with you a quote taken from Heaven, a stone 213.3. Take the word of God as the man of your counsel in the home, live out the teachings of your word of the word. Then you will live them out in the church and will take them with you to your place of business. The principles of Heaven. Well, in Noble all your transactions, Angels of God will cooperate with you, helping you to reveal Christ to the World. Friends, do you see that? We've got to take the word of God as the man of our Council has it become the place where you seek for answers? Has it guided you in your home? Can your family see that the Word of God abides in you and guides your life? Because then it will overflow to the church and all the business transactions of our lives in every area. We got a start in our rooms, in our homes and be a Christian at home. But friends, this must be the Foundation of our life. We must hate the word of God as the man of our Council. We got to learn to Trust him. But then something else as well. Prayer, 57.4, To live thus by the Word of God, means the surrender to him. Of the whole life. There will be felt a continual sense of need and dependence, a drawing out of the heart after God. Prayer is a necessity for it is the life of the soul, family, prayer, public prayer have their place but it is secret communion with God that sustains the soul. Life friends, if we are to live by every word of God, You see that 1st sentence there. We have to learn to surrender our whole life to him. What does the word surrender actually mean? Well, I just went to the dictionary and looked it up. This is what Surrender means. It means to not resist. It means to not give in to submit to someone else's authority. That's what Surrender means. And God, He wants US to surrender to him, to Trust him, to be willing to submit to him at the expense of our own wisdom, our own life and our own thinking, our own experiences, no matter how successful we've been. And what we've been doing with our lives, he is the expert on happiness. Jesus, He's the expert on Joy. He's the expert on how to live an abundant life. He is the expert on how to live a life full of power. You know, friends, just as we have sicknesses, we go to the experts, we go to doctors and we walk into their room and say Doctor, I have this pain here and that pain, and they check US. And many times I say there's nothing or you got an infection and just take this and that's it. We walk out full of Joy, full of peace because we've seen the experts on our bodies. And that's what we think. Or sometimes they'll say, there's nothing wrong with you, it'll go away, don't worry about it. And even though the pain is still there, we choose to surrender to the counsel of the Doctor, even though our bodies are still painful walking out. Or they'll say just in a few days will be gone. Right. And we learn to surrender to their counsel. That's exactly what God wants US to do with his word. The word of God is the expert on everything. How to take care of our health, how to dress, how to choose a godly partner where to live everything, how to manage our finances. The Bible has it all. It's the expert. And God wants US to not resist his word. To learn to live by every word that has been written down for US today. One more counsels to parents, teachers and students, 55551, paragraph 3. Those students who get the most good out of life are those who live by the Word of God in their connections. And dealings with their fellow men. You want to get the most out of your life, the most good out of your life. Learn to live by every single word. Now look, I just want to pause here and it was something that, You know, maybe you've been noticing for, for many, many, many weeks and months as I've been preaching. I caught a lot of Ellen want a chordal lot from her books. And I need to address this, and I'm going to go to the Bible study. We don't have time for that. But you know, I hear many people say we shouldn't use Ellen White in our sermons. We shouldn't be calling from her. We should be using her as a source of inspiration to all Look as a 7th Day Adventist and even as a some of the inventors Minister. And Let's even go to step back even just as a Christian. I believe in the Bible and the Bible only. Ok, some day Adventists, we don't take the Bible and sister white. We don't take Sister white instead of the Bible. And we don't take the volumes of The Spirit of Prophecy are in addition to the Bible. Look, we take the Bible and the Bible only as our rule of faith and life. It's called Sola scriptura, the Bible, and the Bible only as a rule and guide rather for this life. But look what we do find in the Bible, and please don't Miss this. We find in the Bible clear prophecies in Acts chapter 2, which was quoted from Joel chapter 2 in the Old Testament. And in places like Revelation Chapter 12 in verse 17, we find in the, in the Bible and, and other places That in the last days, God will have a church in which he pulls out his spirits. And that the gift of prophecy will be present in God's final church. I'm not going to do a study right now right now on that, and it's not a study on Ellen White. It's a study on the testimony of Jesus, the spirit of prophecy. If you're not familiar with this, please sit down with me and have a Bible study before you jump to conclusions. And before you go on, blast out to the whole of the World and Facebook and Instagram or, and all your public places. That why does this pastor preach about Ellen? White all the time, are not. You don't understand the Bible and the Bible only as our rule and guide for this life. But look, God's ran the church at the end of time in Revelation Chapter 12 or 17, they not only keep the climate's of God, but they also have the testimony of Jesus, which is the Spirit of Prophecy, the gift of prophecy. The Bible itself is the one that says that I'm not quoting Ellen White in, in addition to the Bible thinking that you know, she's much better know the Bible and the Bible only. But why do I believe in the Ministry of white because of the Bible and the Bible only learning to live by every word. And so if we believe in the Bible and the Bible only, we would expect to find a church which manifests the gift of the Spirit of Prophecy, right? And that's not something outside of the Bible, but it's the Bible itself that calls for it. And we would have to cut some verses out of the Bible if we leave off the gift of prophecy from the book of Corinthians, revelation Joel so many places that God says he would pour out his spirits and that the gift of prophecy, the book of a field, you know, so as we take the Bible and the Bible only as a rule of faith and doctrine, we see in there that it clearly points out the need for the gift of prophecy in these last days to guide US through troubled waters. It's what we call present truth and simply said, I quote Ellen White because God has given her to US as a gift in these last days. I don't hold her above the Bible. Look, I read through the Bible every year from Genesis to Revelation. I tell people to read the Bible, I know its importance, I understand its value and its place, but I also understand the value of the Ministry of Ellen White as well. It's given to US as a gift, a gift, something that we didn't earn that we don't deserve, but it's a gift from God. And so with that said, Did you know that Ellen White she gives US so much Instruction and counsel as well? She tells US about how to dress in more detail. She tells US even when to turn the lights off at school, she'll tell US about health and temperance, and, and the best temperature to sleep in. In our rooms. She tells US so many things about family and education and the list goes on and on. She has written so many books blessing for US, so much counsel contained in it how to walk through the Strait gate. Look, if she is just giving an opinion, is just an opinion of a woman that lived 100 years ago, and she's been dead for so long it's. It's really isn't worth finding out so much about what she writes, Right? She wrote, right. So I mean if she was just giving her own opinion, it really is really just a waste of time. We shouldn't listen to her at all. But look, If the Lord Jesus sent his right hand, the covering chair of the Angel Gabriel, right down from Heaven to give a light to this woman whom we call a prophet. And we regard as a prophet right from the throne room of God. If God saw it so important to send a messenger to illumine her mind to bless US with all this instruction on how to live successfully. Well, you're definitely worth our time to find out what God has in store for each and every one of US right. Then we begin to see the blessedness of the writings of Sister White look. There's just so much that she has given US and Blessed US with from diet counsels on diets and food, amazing book. And then even how to talk a whole book written on it voice in speech and song. Even a book for young people, a book on education, in fact, a few. How to manage your money wisely, that stewardship. Friends, my point is this man, he must not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God and friends in these last days, we need all the guidance and instruction that we can get. It is for our protection. It is for our safety, it is for our Joy. It is for our happiness. It is for all the good things in life and not for the bad. You know, we need to get the most out of our life. Isn't that what you want To be able to look back in your life one day and know that you lived a life without regret to know that you maximize the time and energy that God has given to you and that nothing was wasted. To know that you lived by every word of God and that Jesus was your guide through you whole life. You know, friends, that's the way to be happy today. That's the way to be happy. Let's learn to take the word of God as the man of our Council. Let's take humans are all the business transactions of our lives, into all our studies, to our recreation, to our relationships, into everything. May God and His fingerprints be found throughout your life. In this New week, I don't know about you, but I want him to guide me. I want him to instruct me so that when the bad things happen, when things that happen, that are unfortunate. And I look back and I see God's fingerprints all over it. I know that surely he is with me in the storm as well as in the Sunshine. Friends. That's how we can live a happy and abundant life. Let's learn to live by every word. This coming week. Let's by our heads, shall we, Father in Heaven. Lot too often we allow our own intellect, we allowed our own opinions. We allow our own successes from this life to get in the way of the counsel that you are given to US. Lord, I pray that you would prevail Hearts and minds. Just as it was, in the days of the Apostles when they heard the sermons of people, they were printed by the Holy Spirit, Lord, please convict US. Show US where we've come short, where we've been walking in a part of our own kindling. We thought we knew better than you and Lord, even though it seems like we've attained some measure of human success, help US not to think that it will continue that way and that's the path for happiness. Help US, Lord, to align our lives with your word. In this coming week, I pray Father that you would guide US, that you would lead US, that you would strengthen US and that you would help US to see the clear instruction that is shining from your word this morning into our lives. Lord. More than ever, please send Jesus to instruct US. This is my honestly Lord. And may we walk closer with you in this coming week than we have ever before. And you give US the strength and the power to heed and apply all the instruction you have given to US. We pray in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
