We don't know the specifics of the path that God has for us. We do know that the Holy Spirit prays for us because we don't know the specifics. We do know that God causes all things to work for our good. We do know that God wants to form us into the image of Christ. But for what purpose? So that we will be glorified. When will that truly happen? When we stand before the judgment seat of Christ. It is here that we will receive what we have done. God prepares us for that moment. It is good for us now and good for us then.

If you want to know the purpose of a creation, you should go to the creator. If we want to know what God created us for, we should look at what He said when He created humanity. And that's how we interpret what God is doing in our lives. He is giving us peace by leading us to walk in our purpose.

Bad things happen to all people. Yet, there is a particular people that God causes those bad things to work for their good. God takes the good and the bad for these particular people and makes something greater. He is always doing this.

Does the trouble you are going through have a purpose? If so, what is that purpose? Should you pray that the trouble ends or that it completes what it can do? Is God making bad things happen so that you will get something better? These are the questions answered in this sermon.

God must be the central figure in a father's life. If not, he will get everything else out of order. The relationship with his wife will be our to order. The relationship with his children will be out of order. His finances will be out of order. Thus, if a father wants to be a successful father, he must make sure God is central to his life.
Hope is the reason we wait for anything. I wait for the doctor because I hope he or she will be able to heal me. I wait in traffic because I hope to go home. Believers do not have their full glory yet. They hope they will see it when they are redeemed. They are assured they will see it when they are redeemed. But they still hope. We always have hope until we see what God has for us. That is redemption: to be all that God intended.
