Turning the Wind Around - Noon Sermon

Turning the Wind Around

Text: Mark 6:48 – "The wind was against them."

Messages from Job and Elihu to get through the tough times.

Intro. – Elihu is last to speak. He speaks from his heart. He spends little time on confrontation and what is wrong with Job. He speaks mostly of the greatness of God.

God is GREATER than man .. (Job. 33:12)-do we try to control God ourselves?God does speak during the storm. By dreams (33:14) and through illness vs(19-22) wrongdoing and pride

God’s angels stand by us and renew us (33:25) that we might be renewed and restored .And that the light of life may shine on him.

God Made Us – (33:10) Example: Razor blade radio, Who gives songs in
the night.

God does great things beyond our imagination. (37:5) "God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding." (Patient in
hospital who lost both legs because of a dog bite and gives God credit for amiracle.)

SUMMARY: In times like this, when the wind is against us—We need guidance, we need to realize a purpose in the difficulty, and we need to think of the Greatness of God and his ability to work in us.

OH YES, MARK 6:5 tells us that when the disciples took their eyes off of themselves and focused on Jesus that "The wind died down!" You think about that !!!

SERMON UNUSUAL.........It was over 90 degrees...air conditioner at church did not work. Priest said: 'Pay close attention...this is the shortest sermon that you will ever hear. He then gave a one sentence comment on the Gospel for that day. Neat. Try it, Bro Dan...dare you.
