    Ps. Mark Pettus
    (Psalm 34:17 NLT) The LORD hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them
    from all their troubles.
    (詩篇34:17 口語訳)正しい者が助けを叫び求めるとき、主は聞いて、彼らをそのすべての悩みから助け出され る。
    Question of the day...​Have you ever needed God’s help?
    Who will be honest and say there is an area of your life you need God’s help?
    ● I bet we all have a list...older I get the more I realize I need help...it’s hard to help myself
    ● But we don’t have to depend on ourselves...we don’t just have will power...we have a higher power!
    No matter how far down we may feel we can have a COMEBACK!
    ● I love comebacks...the best part of sports...Lebron semi-finals / Japan comeback to win the 2011 world cup
    ● STORY - Landon’s comeback!
    Our God is a comeback God...he loves stepping in to rescue us...to help us...even at our lowest point...
    ● The bible is full of the stories! Real people just like us, in situations just like we face
    God can give you a comeback from...
    ● Your ​mistakes
    ● Things we have done to ourselves...Physical, Finances, Relationships
    ● All of us have messed up...mistakes are frustrating but they don’t have to define our lives
    ● In the bible people had a comeback from terrible mistakes...Moses, Paul, David, Peter...
    ■ Mistake 1 - Walks out on the water but then takes his eyes off Jesus (his classic mistake)
    ■ Mistake 2 - Jesus is sharing his heart about the crucifixion and he rebukes Jesus (called Satan)
    ■ Mistake 3 - Jesus arrested in the garden and he cuts the ear off of the guard (Jesus fixes it)
    ■ Mistake 4 - He denies Jesus 3 times at his most desperate hour (full of guilt)
    ■ He was done...goes back to fishing...then he has his comeback.
    ■ Jesus calls out him and restores him...​He quit fighting for control and puts God in control​.
    ● He goes on to do amazing things...
    ● His comeback verse -
    (1 Peter 5:6) Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
    (1ペテロ5:6 JCB)あなたがたは、神の力強い御手の下で自分を低くしていなさい。ちょうどよい時に、神はあ なたがたを高く引き上げてくださるでしょう。
    ● Before we move on I have to share a comeback testimony – Chris King
    ● Your ​wounds
    ● These are the things we didn’t ask for...they were done to us.
    ■ Most are relational – Words, Betrayal, Abandonment, Abuse ● You can have a comeback...even from the worst wounds...Joseph proves it
    ■ Wound 1 - Brothers were jealous and decided to kill him and threw him in a pit (unwanted)
    ■ Wound 2 - Felt bad about that so instead sold him in slavery (rejected)
    ■ Wound 3 - Finds favor then is accused of seducing Potiphar’s wife (falsely accused)
    ■ Wound 4 - Thrown in prison (awful situation) and interprets some dreams (forgotten)
    ■ Each should have been a death sentence but Joseph looked to God & had a comeback
    ● Eventually he becomes wildly successful and he is given the chance for revenge
    ■ His comeback verse -

    (Genesis 50:20) You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
    (創世記50:20 新改訳)あなたがたは、私に悪を計りましたが、神はそれを、良いことのための計らいとなさいま した。それはきょうのようにして、多くの人々を生かしておくためでした。
    ● Instead of letting the wound define him he gave the wound definition. With God you can do the same!
    ● Comeback Testimony – Kirkpatrick Story
    ● Our ​circumstances
    ● Things life brings our way...life happens...this world is a crazy place.
    ■ sickness happens, accidents happen, life gets overwhelming, cars break, Netflix crashes
    ● Circumstances can cause us to feel defeated.
    ● Job can relate no matter what you are facing!
    ■ Circumstance 1 - He loses his oxen and donkeys (raiders) and then his sheep and camels (fire)
    ■ Circumstance 2 - His seven sons and three daughters are killed (house)
    ■ Circumstance 3 - He is covered with boils and sores
    ■ Circumstance 4 - His friends turn against him
    ■ Circumstance 5 - His wife tells him to curse God and die
    ● Job made a decision...to trust God. He refused to let life dictate his faith he let his faith dictate his life! ■ His comeback verse​ -
    (Job 42:2) "I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.
    (ヨブ42:2 JCB)「あなたはどんなことでもできるお方で、だれもあなたの働きを止めることができないことが わかりました。
    ● In the end everything is restored to him!
    ● Comeback Testimony – Healing of person with Cancer

    Let ​Go​ 手​放す
    ● Only when we start believing can we let go of what has happened...can’t live our past

    (1 Corinthians 6:17-19 NLT) And don’t you realize that if a man joins himself to a prostitute, he becomes one body with her? For the Scriptures say, “The two are united into one.” (17) But the person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him. (18) Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body.

    3.Both married and single - God’s Love is our foundation for a great marriage
    結婚している人もシングルも - 神の愛こそが結婚の素晴らしい土台
    (1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV) Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. (5) It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. (6) Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. (7) It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (8) Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
    (1コリント13:4-8 JCB)愛は寛容であり、親切です。愛は決してねたみません。また、決して自慢せず、高慢になりません。(5)決して思い上がらず、自分の利益を求めず、無礼なふるまいをしません。愛は自分のやり方を押し通そうとはしません。また、いら立たず、腹を立てません。人に恨みをいだかず、人から悪いことをされても気にとめません。(6)決して不正を喜ばず、いつも真理を喜びます。(7)愛は、どんな犠牲をはらっても誠実を尽くし、すべてを信じ、最善を期待し、すべてを耐え忍びます。(8)神からいただいた賜物や能力は、いつかは尽きます。しかし、愛は永遠に続きます。預言すること、異言で語ること、知識などの賜物は、やがて消え去ります。
