Fitting the Pieces Together

Getting Through What You are going Through

Fitting the Pieces Together

 

Memory Verse: Psalm 43:5 (NKJV) why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.

 

 

INTRODUCTION:

“A puzzle is a game, problem, or toy that tests a person's ingenuity. In a puzzle, one is required to put pieces together, in a logical way, in order to arrive at the correct solution of the puzzle… Solutions of puzzles often require the recognition of patterns and the creation of a particular kind of order.”--Wikipedia  

 

“Life is a puzzle. Putting it together is a challenge.”—Unknown author

 

 

Life is like a puzzle. There may be difficulties finding the right pieces but in the end your puzzle will be complete.” Alma Sales

GOD’S PURPOSE:

John 9:1–3; 2 Corinthians 12:7

God is not the only source of adversity. Oftentimes adversity comes as a result of our own doing… Adversity is in many cases the result of sin. In fact, sin always results in adversity of some kind.—Dr. Charles Stanley  

 

 

“…Sometimes there is no explanation for adversity other than the fact that we are feeling the effects of someone’s sin.”—Charles Stanley

 

 

3.
THE ENEMY.

John 10:10; 8:44; Revelation 12:9–10; 1 John 3:8; Job 1:1,8, 9–12; 2:4–7; 1 Peter 5:8–9

 

 

 

Conclusion: Proverbs 24:10, 1 Peter 5:10

“… Adversity, regardless of the source, is God’s most effective tool for deepening your faith and commitment to Him.”—Dr. Charles Stanley 

 

 

“…Oftentimes, the explanations we are so desperately seeking will become clear as we respond properly to adversity.”—Charles Stanley
