SERMON INFO
It Didn't Come Gift Wrapped

Not Every Gift is Gift Wrapped and Tied with a Bow.

But a gift is a gift…

I pray this word will encourage you and be a great help that you receive it and release it before those who need these truths.

Remember this: Sometimes our answers are found in our own pleas. Let me explain using the example found in Psalms 43.

David cried out: "For You are the God of my strength; why do You cast me off? Why do I go mourning BECAUSE of the oppression of the enemy?" (Psalms 43:2)

God had not cast David off... quite the opposite. David had gotten his focus off of God and onto the weighty words and wicked ways of the enemy.

This shift in focus made him question God, but he did not question himself and his misplaced attention. He used the phrase, "BECAUSE of the oppression of the enemy..." Notice how he blamed the enemy and questioned God's faithfulness but took no blame for his weighty spirit. David is having an old-fashioned pity party. Remember... pity parties are from the devil and they always make us unproductive and we blame everyone for our misery but ourselves.

Don't miss the evidence of God's chastening love.

This is what was going on. God had not cast off or abandoned His servant. Not at all... He was loving on him. What did God do? Exactly what He tells us He will do. What God did was remove His perfect peace from David, ONLY to reveal that he had redirected his attention off of God and onto the ungodly (Isaiah 26:3). This chastening love seemed, at the moment, as if God had cast him off, but He hadn't. God was turning David back to Himself so that He might restore and reinforce his trust and peace.

The absence of God's perfect peace work
