Do I Have The Right?

Video Details:
About the Video:

You have rights.  Know your rights. 

  • Equal rights.
  • Bill of rights.
  • Human, civil, and legal rights.

 

Protect your rights.

 

TRUTH:  You may feel like you have the right to do something, but only God can give you the power to do it. 

 

  • I may have the right to hurt, but I don’t have the right to hurt someone.
  • I may have the right to be mad, but I don’t have the right to hate.
  • I may have the right to be sad, but I don’t have the right to make your life miserable.
  • I may have the right to be upset, but I don’t have the right to walk in unforgiveness.
  • I may have the right to be angry, but I don’t have the right to get even.

 

            I.  (1 Samuel 24:1-8)  David as an example:

A.  Does he have the right to do to Saul what Saul has done to him?

      1.  (Verse 4) You will always have people who will agree with your flesh.

 

            (Psalm 54:1-3, 7:1-2, 142:1-2, 34:8-10, 22:1-2, 57:1-6)

 

     B.  (Verse 5)  Do you convict easy or hard?

           1.  At what point does conviction take place in your life?

           2.  How loud does the alarm bell go off?

           3.  How do I have strong consequences versus weak?

  • Word of God
  • Accountability
  • Ask the Holy Spirit
  • Run, avoid
  • ______________________

 

     C.  (1 Corinthians 9:27, Colossians 3:5)  You are not always going to feel like doing

           right.

            1.  Don’t be led by your feelings.

            2.  If you are led by your feelings, you will never be able to follow, love, serve

                 and obey God.

  • (Verse 8)  Even though you are not doing anything wrong.
  • Even though it is not your fault but someone else.
  • Even though you are right there.
  • Even though you are blameless.

 

Can you still apologize, say I’m sorry, repent, do something, try, respect, honor, serve, and acknowledge?

 

 

                 D.  (Verse 8) David stoops, bows, and falls to the ground.

                       1. Abundance of humility and lack of pride versus abundance of pride and lack of

                            humility.

  • David knew how to trust God.
  • David knew he wasn’t Saul’s judge or jury.
  • David knew it wasn’t his right to retaliate, vindicate, or have revenge.
  • David knew there is a right way to be promoted.  God’s way not my way.
