You can find a RSS feedling on our website: WWW dot, dewberry baptist ClarksbridgeDoncom you're, a square peg in a round Hoe. If IA said that to you, you and I bothknow- that's not a compliment that basically says you're unfit for whatyou're doing. However, as I thought about that topic,I was doing some research on square pegs round holes and I got cidtre. I found the geometric problem ofsquaring the circle. The problem is a problem ofconstructing the square with the same...

...area as a given circle using a compaseand a streetedge. In fact, in eighteen, eighty two, itwas proven impossible. However, its impossibility relies heavily on thefact that Pi is transcendental and I just blessed you didn't I byou're just like what did hh just say. Let me reprate him in this Dimenson, it's impossible the square circlegeometric, but in another dimension, which theoretically, is not constrainedby the physical laws of this dimension, such as in the realm of reality. So can you squeare the circle not in this world,...

...but possibly in another realm you could. Such possibilities should open ourminds to the reality that God is beyond our minds, we're into ronmes chapter seven throughnine. We see in these chapters tha command to drive out the nations otheginning to do so the command to follow God to command, not to followfaults. Gods like the golden calf incident, but I'm going to read fromNuderonomi chapter seven versus six through thirtee, for you are a people holy to the Lordor go the Lordour. God has chosen you ou of all the peoples on the face ofthe earth to be his people, his treasure posision. The Lord did not sethis affection on you and choose you...

...because you were more novrous thanother peoples, for you are the fewest a Oldmen, but it was because the Lord longed you Keppialte Flor to your ancestors. Thenhe brought you out with a mighty and and redeem you from the land of slaveryfrom the PA hour of Faril. King of Egypt know, therefore, that the worture Godhis got. He is the faithful Goy keeping his commandment of Lok to a thousandgenerations of those who love him, keep his commanders, but those who hatehim he will repay to their face bydestruction. He will not be slowly repay to theirface. Those who Ad Im therefore take care to follw the commands to crees andlaws. I give you today: If you pay attention to these laws and are carefulto foggl them, then the Lord you're got...

...we'll keep his convenant of love withyou. As he's wore to your ancestors. He willlove you and bless you and increase your numbers. You will bless the fruitof your wound: The crops of your land, your grain, neurawine and Olival, thecalf of your herd. The lands of your plots in the land is war to yourancestors iy exaltation in God's Tegodomy, if notbased on talent or stature or abilities or possessions or looks, but Exaltation in God's economy issolely based on God's choice, to love us and our choice, to allay him, God, sovereign joice and our freechoice,...

...while an apparent o are actually complimentary. The passengr that I just read some mayread versus sixth, through eight and speak of God, sovereignty, God chos you, he chose Israel because he wanted to. He can do whatever God wants to do.Others might read versus nine through thirteen and say he loved Israel,because they loved here kept his commandments and God hatesthose who hate him. His love and convenant seemed dependenton their choice to obey versus twelve and thirteen. Could it be that God chills Israelsimply because he chose to do so? Andhe chose them as a result of theirobedience to him.

Does God, sovereignty and man's freewill truly nullify each other is God's Omnipotence and God'sonicience at Aut. Perhaps the better position would bePaul's position at the end of Roman's. Eleven seein Romans Nineto Eleven PaulExplains God's election of Israel being gods sovereign at Jacob. Ihaveall nstated that God chose Israel and God's chosen. Israel fellaway in there, disbelieve, don't miss that. God chose Idro Jacobivo, but then Paulsaid they fell away...

...in his belief, Roman's alip, that'squite interesting in in of itself thegod chose them bat. They chose tofall away and Paul even says that God chols them. They chose not tobelieve and yet Paul Finishes, that Chapter Chapter Eleven by stating thatthe gyptiles who God didn't Ouse, chose to believe through Israel's dispally and thus would push Israel to believe you gotto, be careful, saying that God doesn't choose. Tyou've also got to be very gooand,saying that we have no choice in the matter.

Se Scripture seems to teach, but God is sovereign and man freely chooses. Perhaps God is of a different real thanURA, perhaps like squaring a circ. Reconciling God's sovereignty withman's free choice might prove to an extent to be beyond Huan comprehension in thisream, perhaps such as above our feeble minds.Perhaps the Bater position would be to stay. What Paul States at the end ofRoman's eleven as he rested with these topics? Oh the death of the riches, both of thewisdom and knowledge of God, how Im Surchopo or his judgments and his waysPas finding out...

...who have known the mind of Ar who is his couse, who had first given to him and she'll,be reconvinced, undo him again for of him and through him and to him are allthings to whom be glory forever Amen. So what does this have to do with dailyliving? Everygod does not manipulate ourchoices, but he is nevertheless in control. We are responsible for our choices andyet God werks all things together for good those who lovee those who are calledaccording to his purs, you and I can choose to see him...

...or we can choose to Alay. It is not pretetern what I will do and yet nothing we do could ever thrart go's eternal plan, say wel passer, I'mconfused good. Oh the death of the wisdom andknowledge of God. HCAN know those who think they can are FoolishYeh, possle Paul, wouldn't even claim such you and I are precious to God and whilesomeone may choose to harm me, make youse to Harn you and such evildoes not find its origin in our great God. Nevertheless, God will use it for our mi...

...he's an amazing God who uses evil forgood. What a god Beo at we can imagine. So we follow Christ today, whatever happens nod will use it forour benefiwhat, a big Goy, a god, truly beyond combring towhom be glory forever and ever Teyorreading for tomorrow will be dude to roname ten through twil, but before wego on a pray with you tfatherly. Thank you so much for this amazing lesson, areminder from you yo're so much bigger than irmind. Lord. We pray in Jess, name ND. We willnever get to the point we where we...

...think we're your accountsewhere. Wethink we've got you figured out. We just agree with Paul it. Suchknowledge is impossible. You've chosen not to reveal it perhaps because ourfeeble minds couldn't contain. Nevertheless, we do know of yew things. We know that you're in controlable. We know that we have the freedom tochoose and do whatever we want to choose an to. We know we're responsiblefor me choice and we know that you work all things together for good those who thank you for that promise. Today we believe it. Jesus thank, keep F, joining Estoday I'll,see you tomorrow.
