Too often, we view God as the "go to" guy. He solves all of our problems exactly as we tell Him. He heals, gives prosperity and promotes our brand because He wants to make us happy. What a crock! God is much greater than a sugar daddy. He walks with us to the other side of our needs. That doesn't mean that He always heals as we think He should, provide as we think He should or even give us direction or purpose like we think He should. Maybe that's why we don't know what to say when bad things happen to faithful people. We only think of God as our faithful servant. We don't know what to do with Him when He fails to perform (as we think He should.).

The lowest attended meeting at a church is often a prayer meeting. Why? Maybe its because true prayer causes us to walk with God truthfully. We talk with Him while He knows the truth about us. We listen to Him tell us what we may not want to hear. We pray without seeking His will over ours. We demand from the One with whom we can't demand. Walking with God will always involve prayer. True prayer seeks His will. Knowing His will means that we must hear from Him. Lots of people don't want to know God that well. How about you?

Abraham received a promise from God, but first he was obedient to what God called him to do. He left the land he was living in and his family to go to a place that God had for him. God makes a promise to us. He tells us to believe in His Son and we will have life eternal. It seems that all of God's promises follow that pattern. We start with obedience and God's promise is fulfilled. Salvation isn't the only promise God makes to us.Wouldn't you like to know about His promise is to you?

Many Christians have become casual in their faith. Being casual means that they think their faith is very little about their commitment and very much about God's commitment to them. While God is committed to His people. God also expects extreme commitment from His people. Casual faith will never lead us to the throne of God. Casual faith will never give us revival. This study is to call us to radical commitment.

Father's is losing its significance. Many children are growing up without fathers. Many of the males who fathered these children never knew how to become men. The lack of manhood leaves the whole human race at a loss. Moms are trying to be mothers and fathers to their children. This leaves the boys without a role model to show them how and girls without a role model to show them who they should marry (if marriage is in their future). This message is not comprehensive in teacher males how to be dads. It is just a few hints that can get males to become the men they need to be to be great dads.
