Struggling for sermon ideas...

What to do when you seem to be struggling for sermon ideas? I seem to be going through a "dry" season in which it is difficult to get a handle on what God would have me to preach.

Struggling for messages

Are you teaching topical? Verse by verse?

I do a hybrid. I take a segment, could be 4 verses could be twenty. Then I look and see if there is a theme. I take the over arching theme and develop a working outline.

Then I get into each word within my text. I use E-Sword, TDNT, TWOT and a couple of other resources. Usually I find one word that just bears so much power in it.

If you are going topical, I would pray and ask God to help you do a study through a book. You may spend a few months to several years on a single book depending on what you find.
