Numb – Week 1


1-Honestly Assess

1.  Spiritual Apathy

“So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”  (Revelation 3:16)

If sin separates you from God, no wonder sometimes you don’t feel Him.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”  (Romans 3:23)

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

“Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” (Proverbs 28:13)

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

2.  Spiritual Winters

“I cry to you for help and you do not answer me; I stand, and you only look at me. 21 You have turned cruel to me; with the might of your hand you persecute me. 22 You lift me up on the wind; you make me ride on it, and you toss me about in the roar of the storm. 23 For I know that you will bring me to death and to the house appointed for all living.” (Job 30:20-23)

“As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?  3 My tears have been my food day and night, while they say to me all the day long, “Where is your God?” These things I remember, as I pour out my soul: how I would go with the throng and lead them in procession to the house of God with glad shouts and songs of praise, a multitude keeping festival.” (Psalm 42: 1-4)

3.  Time shows your treasure

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-4)

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:21)

“Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” (Psalm 90:12)

The time that matters most is the time is spent with Him.
