Sex addict – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

The first time I heard of a “sex addiction”,  it was  the reason a certain public figure couldn’t keep his fly zipped.

As an alcoholic, (dry for many years), I’ve always thought I was powerless against my addiction.  This is the party line.

We have 12 step programs to help us defeat all sorts of addictions.  Alcohol, drugs, shop lifting, smoking, sex, nose picking, finger licking, ect….

I can only come to one conclusion, these addictions are real,  I know they are, I fight several daily.

Who am I, O Lord? – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Have you ever had occasion, to ask the Lord: “Who am I?” 

Moses asked that question when the Lord sent him to the Hebrews and Pharaoh.  Moses tried to change the Lords mind by reminding Him who he was.

I am just a shepard Lord, I don’t speak well, I am nobody, why would they listen to me?   I am not worthy, O Lord.  Send someone else.

Are our hearts and ears open? – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Deuteronomy 6:4-6
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:  And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.  And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

The Lord is calling us:  (We are Israel, today. His chosen.)
He has called us, to hear Him, To listen.  To use our ears for more than a hat rack.  To recognize and understand His voice. To do His will.

The Lord is telling us:
Open your hearts, receive His word, meditate, sing and pray His Word, His Commands, His Laws.  Keep them in our hearts.
Love the Lord with all your heart.  Become a love slave, yearn to learn of Him, to walk with Him, to do His work in His way, in His will and time.

Open our ears and hearts: 
Only then will we receive the mercy, grace and knowledge to fulfill His will.

Finding the perfect place: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

On most of the vehicles I have owned and driven, (45+ years worth), the heater adjustment has been a sliding lever, hot to the right and cold to the left.

They have all shared the same condition. 

It is impossible to adjust to a comfotable temperature.  It is either way too hot or chilling cool.

image

You carefully bring the lever to the that area, the place, where you know, it will be the perfect temperature.  (The pleasant place, a place of rest, peace and comfort). 

Suddenly, it no longer slides freely. 

There is an area, a place on this sliding scale, (1/4″ long), that you have to muscle through.

It is impossible to put that lever in the spot you long to find.  You drive forever, too hot, too cold, too hot, too cold. 

There is no peace.  No rest.  No joy to be found.   It is a fact.  Accept it.  It is impossible to reside in, to live in, that perfect place. 

In my vehicles, that is my lot in life.  Not so in Christ.

A lot of us, seem to have the same problem, in our Christian walk.  Finding that perfect place, where we know God wants us, and will use us.

We long to reside in that place, but cannot find it.  We are either too hot, (trying too hard), or too cold, (not trying at all).   We do not understand how to muscle through to this perfect place.  That is because it is a secret place.

Psalm 91:1-3
King James Version (KJV)
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

We can live in the secret place by Departing from evil.
Psalm 34:14
Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

Seeking the Lord:
Psalm 105:4
Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore.

If we seek Him we will find Him:
Deuteronomy 4:29
But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

Quit seeking where you should be, what you should do, the things that you desire.

The secret of living in the secret place is:
Matthew 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

The secret of the secret place is:
The Lord will can use you, right where you are.
The Lord can use you, flaws and all.
The Lord loves us, even when we miss the mark.

Amen and Amen.

                (My Dad and brothers work)
Seek the Lord.
James 1:8
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
James 4:8
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

So simple and impossible to do.  Lord, please bring me to this place, where I seek only You.

A sweet savour to the Lord: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

What makes a sweet savour (smell, aroma), to the Lord?  We find it mentioned 46 times in the Bible, most in the Old Testament.  All concerning burnt offerings.

The first offering was spontaneously made by Cain and Able.  (A freewill, giving back to the Lord).  Long before  the Priesthood, and formal offerings were  implemented.

It is interesting to note:
There is no mention that it was a burnt offering. 
Cain was the first to bring an offering, the fruit of the ground.  Followed by Able, with a perfect lamb.
The Lord rejected Cains offering but excepted Ables. 

Why?

I believe it was because Cain was proud of his accomplishments, the tilling, weeding, picking the best.  (Because of him, it was a good crop).

Where Able brought a perfect lamb, without spot or blemish, acknowledging the Lords perfect work.

After this Cain killed Able and left the presence of the Lord.   There was no sweet savour.

Somethings must be given up: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

When Moses decided to see what was going on with the burning bush, He received a direct order from God.

Exodus 3:4-6
King James Version (KJV)
And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
