My heart is receptive. I will never be the same in Jesus name. God bless you. Talk to you today about how you been framed. We, that phrase most of the time we think of it as a bad thing We ve been set up made the local, We did something that we didn't do, but the script
it talks about a different type of frame its. As the world's were framed by the word of God. It's not just talking about the physical world, the in the original language is eons, meaning It is our times It's saying God has a frame around your tat. He has put a fence a boundary around your lie. Nothing can penetrate your frame that God doesn't allow trouble, sickness accidents. They can't just randomly happen. The frame is sent. You have to worry about your future. There's a frame around your health afore around your chilled afraid, around your finances, it's a boundary set by the creator. Of the universe. Not only can nothing get in without gods permission. But even better news you can't get out
You can't make a mistake, big enough to break out of that frame. You can't get to addicted discouraged to angry. It's a destiny frame. God won't. Let you get so far off course that you can't still fulfil your purpose. You may come right up to the edge bad to do so. Than to get you in trouble and your bump into the frame. Gotta push you right back. Had a man tell me how he was so fed up with his balls. He'd worked this company for many years, and his boss was always condescending, making Sarka. Stick remarks and this man had had all he could take. He was about to if his boss a pc his mind, he knew it get fire, but at this point he didn't care He had his speech or Linda late in bed the night before steam. Thinking tell him. I don't like you. I don't know Do you are lousy based on an own he's, gonna? Let it all hang out. The next morning. First thing he
marched into his bosses office without knocking all far too. Strangest thing happen, he got flustered He couldn't remember what he's gonna say here and totally went blank. He looks, the bar, since it would you like, a cup of coffee he's a door. I tried to tell him off: I tried to be me. I just couldn't do it. What happened here into the fry. God knows how to protect you not only from accidents, not from the wrong people. God will protection from yourselves sometimes were the most dangerous thing we face at the family reunion, yoga, tell that relative all. Somehow you feel a piece come over here, or there walk out of the room at just the right tat S, not a coincidence. You better, thank God, for you afraid, add on the freeway that personally, aren't you all
you're about to give them a signal with your hand. Now I'm not talking about one way. Jesus you pull up next it in so aggravated, throw your hand up. Instead of doing what you thought you'd smile and give them a big friendly way. What hath you bumped into your frame this brain. Has kept us out a more trouble than we realize you better, God for your frame or you might not still have a job. If it not been for the frame. We might not still be married, how many We gonna tell our spouse exactly what we think and exact What they should do and we hear the steel small voice, saying don't do it by your tongue, walk away. We take the advice, that's the frame in this If you're David, experienced this brain, He and his men had been protecting a man by the name of naval. They were camped next door. To do him a favour. They made sure that no bandits bothered him or his property.
One day David said men to go ass naval for some food. Maybe was very rude: I told those man, I don't owe you anything I ask you to do this. Just get off my property when they, been heard what naval had said. He was furious, he told his men pack up, we'll go go wipeout naval in anyone, that's half way associated with him this? David all, as headed toward enables house angry offended Ready to get even God A young lady named Abigail Abbot? was Naples why she met. It on the road with gifts with food She said David, you call to be our next key. You are still to do great things. My enable he's a fool: Why are you going to waste your time fighting with him? You could miss your destiny. She spoke since into him
David, said, you're, exactly right turned around and went back home You know what Abigail was. She was a part of the free God ordained her to be there at the right time to know exactly the right thing to say. Head David, gotten distracted, killed Naval caused a big stir that mistake could have kept him from taking the throne. He went right up to the edge buddy bumped into his brain God is so good. He will always send the right person to say the right thing to keep you permission, your destiny David. Where would I be without the goodness of God, he could have said Where would I be? Without this spring? only experienced the frame. God told him to go to the city of Nineveh. He didn't want to go there. He said God, that's what you want me to do. I want to go my own way. He went in the opposite direction: and God will always let you do you own thing. He let you go
your own way but he so merciful at some point. Bump into your frame let Jonah go the wrong direction. Jonah ended up on a ship middle of a huge storm. He finally told the crew that he was the problem this crew had no mercy They said Jonah, you, the problem, good right, you're out of here. They threw him overboard. You would think would be the end of Jonas lie. He brought them. Problem on himself. He knew the I think that he did the opposite, He had no body to blame except himself. I'm sure Jonah felt like he was finished. He's dead. It's goodbye made is peace, but what I didn't realize was the frame God had put around his lie. Yes, he made a mistake, but it was outside the frame. Yes, he was in trouble, but that trouble wasn't a surprise to God
god- allowed the difficulty indigenous frame not to harm him but to push toward his divine destiny when it looked hopeless, out in the sea, treading water, no chance to survive. He'll come a big fish and swallows Jonah. You know what that fish was like Abigail part of the frame. Three days later that fish speeding up nah, Graham Jonas, and you know what I'm gonna need about. After all, like Jonah, you can run as much as you want. The good news is you'll never run out. Are you afraid you'll keep? an up against it again and again. It'll always push you back toward your divine destined, in other words, go out and party livid not give God the time of day, but while you're fringe of party while their enjoy lie. Deep down. You'll be miserable,
thinking. Why can I enjoy this? Why am I so unsatisfied it's because of the frame? God put on your life, you are ruined for live in a defeated, mediocre, compromising lie. Gods com Link is on you, you can go your own way, but God has a way of getting your back. On course, God is. A frame that you cannot penetrate the enemy can penetrate. Drugs can penetrate the wrong. People can penetrate the most tat. God has finished you in here boundaries around your life, so strong all The forces of darkness cannot get in and you not yet We can make mistakes, we can run from the call we can try to ignore it, but the first, Around your life was put in place for the foundation of time when guy,
breathed his life into you? He framed your world as why parents, we don't have to worry about our children. They ve been framed. They may get off course, but sooner or later the bump into the frame they may run with the wrong crowd, but the frame is they can't go too far to miss their destiny. Their goal bump into it again again and again until finally say I'm tired of fighting. I'm all let you have your way, I'm gonna honor you with my lie. Some of you, because you had a prey and mother you- a prey and grandmother you had relatives in Honour God, you Mars will give you don't have a chance. Your frame is so so you're you gonna, keep bourbon into until God gives you the way you're supposed to be. I know this mother. She was so concerned about her son. He was making very poor choices cheat
convincing to quit, run in with the wrong crowd, convince him to come. The church. He just wouldn't do it here. Up in jail. One Sunday morning, he was watching television in the car an area their inmates came in and wanted to. Something different nature. In arguing and ended up in us. As for the remote controlled trying to get it out of each other's hands about that, This huge inmate walked in six foot. Six looks like a professional football. Layer had these muscle, bulging out of sure he grab the remote control to Gimme. That thing out aside, what we're gonna watch started flippin through the channels and he came across our pro. When he said we ll go watch Joel today. Those two inmates got up to leave. He grabbed the one young man by the short and pulling back now says sitting and you can watch with me. What happened? He bumped into the frame
a really big frame: Armada, errants parents- God has the right people not only land for you, but for your children. For you, grandchildren quit worrying about them and start thinking, God for the frame. Don't you ever go around telling your friends how your children, or so of course, and there never gonna, do what's right, zip dead and get an agreement with God. Lord I wanted you that my children have been framed committed them into your hands and Lord, you said the seed of the righteous we'll be mighty in the land. As this inmate was watching the programme with the six six inmate making sure he watched he began to feel gods presence. He started weeping, right then, and there in the jail that big inmate led him to Christ. Now I see this young man at our services all the time sitting next to his mother, you may not
see how it can happen. That's not your job. Your job is to stay in peace. No one there children have been framed. Her prayers or activating gods power. When you pray just imagine the Rain is getting smaller, the boundaries or getting tired God. What let them go as far as they used to heal made them. Comparable in compromising situations here, war, enjoy doing wrong like they did before. God knows how to tighten the frame when I nineteen years old, I was driving home from a ball game very late at night It was no body on the freeway. Had us words corn. Design driven, it was about seventy five miles an hour. I thought This would be a great time to see how fast this car will really go to war. Clock in the morning five shillings. A freeway in front of me, I was on the top, the big bridge I could see
about two miles down the road. Hardly anybody on the road just a car to here and there. So I put the panel to the floor. Net car took off, go and so fast, I'm not going to your health, because my mother sitting on the front row, but as I was blind down the highway feeling so cool. I looked up and there was a car right next to me. I thought I can't believe it. He won't do right he can't raise me? You got a piece and so on put it down even faster, took all October very, was again but someone I look, he was holding up his bag, I merely wish to Heaven right then, and there my heart stopped I look back over any mouth. The words slow down
thirty miles an hour, the rest of the way parents. God has a frame around your child, even when they do dumb things they can't get out of the frying. Always have the right person, whether its Abigail a six point: six inmate! off duty police officer going down the freeway one in the morning we can't get out of the frying acquit. Looking at me, like You ve never done anything due in the scripture there was a man named saw. He was the big the enemy of the church. He hey believers. He was having been put in prison doing or harm the gods, people than any person of that time, one He was on the road travelling to Damascus and abroad. Light shone down on him, so bright tat, he fell to the ground and became blind. The voice said saw. What are you persecute me You know it's hard to kick against the pranks
God, we're saying Saul. I've got you in my frame you're, trying to kid trying to run trying to ignore it, but saw you to understand. I set the fry. A destiny for you to fulfil, and it's not too my work- is to advance my work. Lay on the ground, not able to see Saul said. Who are you the voice boom? now I am Jesus whom you persecute notice when people persecute give you a hard time for honouring God make fun of you for coming to church. Don't let that body they're not really doing it too. You they're doing it. Under God, Saul was harming believers. Yet God said: you're persecuting me: God took it personally The boys told saw to go to the city and sea and a nice and an eye pray for soul, he got his sight back long story, short Saul.
Came the apostle Paul who went on to ride over half of the new testament. Some of you think that You're too far gone. Made too many mistakes. People tell me often jaw just not a religious person, This none of that matters all matters is the creator of the universe, has put a friend around your life, you can kick run trot ignore it. She's going to make you more miserable God said this all it's hard to kicking against the fry. The frame is not wounded me. There's a call, being on your life a desk need for uniform fail. It has been set there by the most TAT God this, to even talks about how gods calling is irrevocable I'm not going to remove the fry. The sooner you surrender and say God, my life is your hands, I'm only for you.
Get rid of these friends that are pulling me down I'm going to get help with these bad habits, I'm going to get in church and serve and grow I'm going to pursue the dreams you placed in my heart. The sooner you do that the happier and the more fulfilling your life will be you may have family members are friends like saw. You been for a long time, didn't look there are ever get on course, back the more you play the worst they get don't get discouraged stay Peace just likes all they ve been framed. A party his brain is a hedge of protection God has a boundary around your life that the enemy cannot cross friend of mine was driving home from work the other day in his in a light, when it two green. He looked at the left to the right, just being cautious, but just as he is about to go forward then said to him so strongly. Look again back to the right. For a second time a car was come,
full blast, never attempted rain right through the red line. If he had not looked a second time would have gotten broadside no telling what would have happened. What was that the frame if it's not your time to go, the enemy cannot take you out. The freeing this placed around your lie, was put there by the most powerful force in the universe, asked why the solemnly said thousand may fall at my side. Thousand. At my right hand, I'm not worried it could come near me. I know there's frame around my alive thing can happen without gods. Permission had some, They complaining to me once about how they were hit on the freeway. It totally their car and they were really upset disco. They didn't know if the insurance was goin to cover. It was a brand new car. The feeling got from them was that God have let them down
So it s all up. I've got this brain. How come I had an accident who keep the right perspective You may have lost your car, but because The frame. You didn't, lose your life because of the frame you're not paralyse because of the brain. You can still see and talk in here- I'm convinced God put access from so many things that we don't even realize we think sometimes Delaware didn't have anything good happened, may just an average. We know you can. Thank God, what didn't happen because the frame you didn't have an accident because the frame you're not in the hospital. Because of the brain you didn't get laid all because of the frame your children are still healthy and home a few years ago. I was in San Antonio at Army medical Hospital, pray, for some of the soldiers. This house specializes in treating people that have burned one room and a couple stop me and asked me to go in paper, their son he'd been badly burned. They told her.
He was a soldier in Iraq. Was the of the night. The army base, we fuelling these large tanks of gas. Was all alone about a mile, from the main area. Something calls the tune, to ignite when he woke up. He was Twenty yards away flat on back on fire. Not able to move, he's all of this ammunition. They could expand at any moment out of nowhere. These two, a rocky men Civilians showed up and started role in him in the dirt to stop the fire without those two men certainly would have burned to death. What's interesting Those men were not allowed on the base. They were in secure area, three o clock in the morning The parents and those men had to have been put there by God to save our son. What was that define it? in his time to go
the enemy, doesn't determine your destiny. God does, God is bigger than an explosion. Bigger than an accident bigger than a car run in a red lie. God has you in a frame. When I was ten years old, we want Hawaii with my parents. We arrived about we're clock. In the afternoon we were excited after we act into the hotel, all Father, Children ran down to the beach to go swimming brother and sister, Paul and LISA were in their late teens and they were so to watch over us. We rent some floats, but excitement of play in the big waves and having so much fun. We looked up. Couldn't find my little sister April. She was eight years old. We searched in searched so frantically five minutes, ten minutes. Twenty minutes, thirty minutes
I had never felt such a sick feeling in all my life, we were just sure April had drowned. The waves were so big for five minutes, every one was looking and our still nothing our in fifty In minutes later we see April, we weigh down the beach working toward us carrying her flock. We have never been so happy and so mad at her. At the same time, what happened She fallen asleep on that followed, it six hours later here at home about eleven at night. She drifted. Only two miles down the shore. She could have drifted out to sea She could have woken up in deep water, not been able to swim in. A thousand things could have happened but God had her in a frame godhead boundaries set around her and reassure you. Death can penetrate you affording
has to allow the number of your days he will fulfil as well. He's tell people that have still loved one, especially if they went home at an early age, While we may not understand it? No, this is the end. Me, didn't take your loved ones. He doesn't have that power. God called them home. God received them into his presence, the angels carried them into the heavenly fathers arms. When This arose from the great he said you don't have to worry anymore. I've got the keys of death he was saying: no body determines your time except me, death can penetrate you find an accident, can penetrate you refrain. Sickness can penetrate your frame. God has to give permission he controls the whole universe. When you Understand this. You can see with the apostle Paul o death, where stay. Oh grave, where is your victory?
Friday, you, you can't the feed me. I know there's a flame around my lie. Not work about my health. I've been fine not afraid to drive on the freeway thousand may fall at my side. That's ok, I've gotta free Ten thousand. At my right hand, no problem. I've been framed, it's a hedge of protection. A bloodline that the enemy cannot cross, We see this principle in jobs lie. He was. For somebody to test God said to Satan. Have you seen my servant job? There is none I came in all the land so. Answered back something interesting. He said S God, I've seen job you know, I can't touch him. You put a, age around here you gotta for around his life, He went on to say if you remove the frame and let me get to him, then he'll caution but what I want you to see is the enemy can't. Just
do whatever he wants. He has to ask God for permission. God has to allow him to do Joe went through a time attesting. He fought the good bye. And in the end he didn't curse God he came out with double.
