Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

Daily preaching 1/1/2019

Everything will be ok!

Don’t worry be happy is a song that we have all heard. We all have had amazing times where we feel like things can never go wrong, but in life sometimes things don’t always go as planned. I want to let you know that no matter what is happening in your life that you can get though it and make it out ok. We have all been through very similar things sometimes left feeling sad and trapped like there is no where to go, but God has got your back if you put all your faith in him.

“I was at the airport about five days ago I’m flying out and two guys walk up to me. One guy is missing an arm and the other guys in a wheelchair missing two legs both right and they just got back from Iraq and there vehicle got hit by a …bomb… and uh… they came up to me because it wasn’t about my old band having no message it was about this band having a very specific message and they said if you have any idea what this band means to us and I said I don’t ….know… I had no idea how it really effected other people. So I’m sitting in the airport it’s like six in the morning and the guy takes every bit of enegry he has to stand up out of his wheelchair on two prostatic legs and I said up and take a photo with him and he’s shaking because he can barily hold himself up and he looks at me and he goes everything you sing about with Angels & Airwaves is what gets us through this moment in our …lives… So if there is anybody out there who feels stuck or you feel you can’t get through what your going through it’s not true you can.” – Tom Delonge Of Blink 182, Angels and airwaves, Boxcar Racer, and To the stairs.

Jeremiah 29:11-14

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.13 And ye shall seek me, and find [me], when ye shall search for me with all your heart. 14 And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.

Don’t ever forget God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit is with you through your best of times and through your worst of times. God gives you signs through people in your life to show you that he is there and very much a true and living God. Just like God put Tom Delonge in those two guys lives so that they can know God is very much real and was blessing them through hard times. If we speak peace and not evil you will have a expected forever and eternal life in Heaven. In Heaven there will be no sadness, no sorrow, no pain, no tears, but we need to be ready on earth first. We need to call upon God and pray daily for not only our wants, needs, and desires, but also for our firends, family, neighbors, loved ones, and strangers.

Proverbs 3:2-8

2For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. 3Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: 4So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. 5Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 8It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

2 Corinthians 5:4-10

4For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. 5Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. 6Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 8We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 9Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. 10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

A tabernacle is “a fixed or movable habitation, typically of light construction. “The portable sanctuary in which the Jews housed the Ark of the Covenant during their years in the desert. People we need to walk in fiath with God. We need to let him guide and direct us. We need to pray, live for his glory and TAKE ACTION and he will give us things on his time and plan. WE SHOULD NOT WORRY. We should not fear God he is all loving and knowing.

One of my favorite chapter in the Bible Matthew 6:25-

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, [shall he] not much more [clothe] you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof.
