VIEW: TRAILER – NO ROOM IN THE INN

# 'No Room in the Inn?’ will take us from humanity falling hard in the Garden of Eden to believers being crown wearers in heaven. We will learn what God’s Word says about trials and temptations. Believing our Lord has a divine purpose for our trials will help us to respond based upon scripture and not our feelings.

Studying the ministry of Christ, it’s clear that God is more concerned about our character than our comfort. His goal is not to pamper us physically but to perfect us spiritually. Never forget that comfort is a definite feeling of any given moment; Character is for eternity! 

My wife has always been concerned about where baby Jesus was born. Foremost, there wasn't even “Room in the Inn” for this precious child. After all, wasn't He God's Son and our Redeemer? Though He is the King of Kings, He was born in a stable filled with the smell of livestock. The fulfillment of the prophecy was satisfied in this stable. Thus, preparing the way for our salvation

Sometimes we feel there’s “No Room in the Inn” for us. Our life takes a direction we had not planned. The trials of life consume us to the point of wanting to give up. A Five-Star Hotel is not in the budget. We begin listening to all the lies from our enemy to end up questioning God Himself.  

Satan’s greatest weapon is man’s ignorance of God’s Word!  Additionally, half of the truth is the worst part of the lie. With every temptation, there is a lie involved. (1) The Prove It Lie, (2) The “For It Is Written” Lie, and (3) The Short Cut Lie. The devil deceived Eve in the garden with these lies while Jesus was victorious in the wilderness. 

God is setting up His eternal kingdom, and He uses the fiery trials of life to build our faith, mature us, lead us, deliver us, and develop character within us. Foremost, tests are one-way God's plan can merge with His purpose for our lives

So, it’s critical to understand the purpose of trials so as to know what to do, how to do it, when to do it, why we are doing it, what happens if we don’t do it and what are our rewards for doing it right?  A great insight is we embrace trials while resisting temptations. We must get it right here on earth, so to be right when we arrive in heaven. Remember, there are no do-overs once we leave this life behind. 

Absolute belief in God's Word is mandatory for every believer. From receiving Jesus Christ, having your sins forgiven to taking part in His promises, and receiving eternal life. The Bible is God's revelation of Himself to man. The only way to know the truth about God is through His Word-JESUS. Scripture should always be at the threshold of every decision we face because the Bible Is God’s Mind Written Down. Jesus is reciting Himself.

Discerning the origin of trials helps formulate the proper response to them and uncovers God’s purposes behind them. Are they from the devil, our carnal mind, imposed by a fallen world and the people around us, or something God would have us embrace?  Discovering the purpose of trials, how to overcome them, how to be obedient
