Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way
Welcome to The Roads Church. We are going to start a new series of talks today called, ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way.’
Let’s open to Romans chapter 1. We are excited about the Bible. What that means to us is that every time we open the Bible, we believe God’s going to speak to us. So if that shocked you, that little whoop there watching online, you’re like, why are they shouting about the Bible? That’s why, we get excited about what God’s speaking to us. This new series that we’re talking about today, I want to get into, I’m going to start it by just asking you a few questions.
Does God Really Have a Will or a Plan for our Lives?
Have you interviewed, or ever asked any of these questions of yourself? I know I have at different times and maybe you’ll speak to somebody, maybe you watching online. Maybe you are here in the room. Here’s the first question, does God really have a will or a plan for our lives? Is he truly interested in what happens in our individual lives? Is he interested to that level of detail? Can we actually know his will for our life, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church?
Is that something we can even know or is it just guesswork in wonderment and I sure hope I’m there. Thanks, that’s what we’re going to address. Do we have any say so in his will coming to pass in our lives or is it just going to happen no matter what we do? Those are questions that a lot of people ask and the questions that maybe you’ve asked yourself, is God in complete control of every detail of our lives, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church?
We’re going to hit a few of these, and so if you’re not sure where you land on some of those questions, that’s all right. Sometimes it depends on the question on where, where we land and what season of our life, but where we want to see what the Bible says about this. Now this, this phrase where there’s a will, there’s a way is a famous proverb. Now I want to say proverb, not the book of Proverbs proper, but just a proverb or a saying. It’s used to describe someone who’s determined to do something and that they will find a way to accomplish it regardless of obstacles. Anybody know anybody like that? If you’re sitting by him, just keep looking forward. It’s usually used to describe how a person will figure out a way to do what they want to do when they want to do it.
If we’re really honest, how many of us know we really do what we want to do? I mean, we say all the time, why, sorry, I can’t busy. But if you really want to do something, all of a sudden that schedule opens wide up. You know? It’s like, if you’d asked me a couple of weeks ago, “Hey Chad, would you like to book a hotel in Bloomington for two nights and just hang out and stay around?” I’d be like, no, I’m busy, but all of a sudden my daughter wins a volleyball game and everything changes. Now we suddenly have time to travel and spend two nights in Bloomington, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church.
Then what I’m talking about, this happens, whether it’s volleyball for you or whether it’s a can be something serious. It can be the death of a loved one. It can be a marriage. It could be something you’re like, all of a sudden you didn’t have it planned, but you want to do it, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church.
See you made it happen. It works that way. You may have Christmas programs are coming up normally. You’re not saying, “Hey, can I go to the school and spend about three hours?” But if it’s your kids, or they’re your grandkids, you’re there, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church.
