Chaos We Create

Listen to the Message
 
Psalm 51
 
(God) alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. Psalm 62:2
 
“Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that you make bad decisions.”
 
King David, God described as - “after my own heart”. 
 
It led to a time of soul-searching, repentance, and ultimately restoration. 
 
How To Correct the Self-Inflicted Chaos 
 
When you play games with Sin, you’re bound to lose. 
 
He wicked falls by his own wickedness. (Proverbs 11:5)
 
When you sin, it inevitably leads to chaos. 
 
1. You need to confront the cause. 
  • Refusing to acknowledge your role in the chaos only ensures that the chaos will continue.... because nothing ever changes. 
  • You may still have a mess to deal with, but now you can deal with it through His power and with His help. 
2. You need to correct your course. 
  • 1. What could I have done differently?
  • 2. What should I do now?
  • Hostility and tension in a relationship just isn’t worth the price you end up paying. 
  • David could have turned away and he should have turned away.
  • You need to develop a strategy in advance for dealing with temptation. 
  • Decide before hand how you will handle a given situation, and stick to your plan. 
3. You need to create accountability. 
  • God used a man that David trusted to confront him with his sin. 
  • How do you decide who will have the freedom to call you on the carpet when you need it?
  • You want to choose a person of integrity. 
  • You want to choose a person who is committed to you.
  • Faithful are the wounds of a friend. (Proverbs 27:6)
  • You want to choose a person who is equally accountable to you. 
  • Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17)
  • Let’s get God’s wisdom on this matter and put His principles into practice. 
  • God can take the most out-of-control situation, the most chaotic life, and bring it back to peace and stability.
