Bring It On-Line: How to Get Back - September 7, 2016

I just want my relationship with God back and a Christian lady in my life. I am hurting because of my sin and feel at a distance from God's love. What can I do? My family is about to be kicked out onto the streets. I don't know what to do. What ... Read Transcript


All right, we're going to get right

into your email questions.

Nathan says, "I have been on all the dating sites on and off

for the last eight years.

I can't seem to find anyone.

I prayed for the Lord to bring someone into my life.

I get so lonely.

I had a few sexual experiences with the same woman

after I returned home from work trips.

In retrospect I realize that it wasn't the sex I

wanted-- just someone to hold.

I feel too ashamed to pray to ask for God's forgiveness."

Pat, what's your advice to him?

First of all, remember what happened to David.

I mean, not only did he have sex and get a woman pregnant,

but he killed her husband.

So God forgave him and restored him to his throne.

So God will forgive anything.

See, whatever you've done in the past, God will forgive this.

So I wouldn't sweat that one.

But I think you're being too-- I don't know what you're doing.

You're looking for some perfect moment or something.

Perfect women, with the exception of Wendy,

don't exist.

(LAUGHING) Thank you.

I mean, really.

You think you're so perfect?

Take what's offered to you.

There are plenty of-- on those dating sites--

Christian Mingle and that one that the guys--

eHarmony.

eHarmony, yeah.

There are plenty of opportunities to find

a successful relationship.

But you have to realize that there's give and take,

and God has somebody for you if you just let Him do it.

Stop being so picky and stop beating up on yourself.

God will forgive you your sins and transgressions.

Amen.

Benita writes, "My family is about to be kicked out

onto the streets.

I don't know what to do.

We have no money.

We are foreigners in another country.

I have no idea where to turn.

I get such encouragement, though, from your show."

Well, I'll tell you.

God knows your need, and why don't you pray?

You know, he sent ravens to look after Elijah and feed him.

And God can send angels to come take care of you,

but get on your face and begin to pray.

At the same time, I don't know what you're doing.

You're a stranger-- are you an illegal alien?

Yeah, I don't have enough information

to know what the deal is and why you're here and so forth.

But all I can tell you is you ask and encourage what

God Almighty, as your provider, Jehovah-- sorry,

He will provide.

What's the next?

Margaret says, "What are you referring to when you end

a prayer with 'by His stripes?' I've never heard this before."

I don't end prayer that way, but the Bible says

by His stripes, you're healed.

And it was the stripes of the whipping that Jesus got.

And stripes came up from that cat of nine tails.

And he paid the price for the healing of mankind.

And that's what that means when you see it in the Bible.

Well, we'll leave you with today's power minute

from 2 Corinthians.

"For the weapons of our warfare are not

carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down

of strongholds."
