God Wants a Sincere “Yes!”

James 4: 7 Submit to God Hebrews 4: 15 Jesus has experienced everything we do Acts 4: 13 Jesus turned paradigms upside down Hebrews 3: 15 Don’t harden your heart I Peter 5: 6 & 7 Humble Yourselves Proverbs 2: 1-11; 3: 11 God busts you because He loves you

What’s the Position?

Are You Resting? Genesis 1 begins with God’s work of creation and for six days, “Evening and Morning were the __ Day.” On the seventh day, God enters into Rest and we can be in that position of resting in Him. In 2 Chronicles 20: 12-22 Israel rests in what God will do.

Forgive

Unforgiveness holds us back from TRUE LIFE! I forgive, cease resentment, give up my claim. We are not called to hold judgement, exercise a critical spirit. Matthew 7: 1-5 Luke 6: 37-38 Colossians 6: 7-8

Healed

Joshua 5: 1-12 Allow for the cutting away of the weight & sin Space for healing to happen Psalm 147: 2 & 3 He heals wounds of every shattered heart

The Impossible Future

Joshua 23: 10 We can’t move toward the impossible future without change in our thinking and behavior. Change is safe because He fights for us; change has provision; change will move us into our promised land. Romans 12: 2 “The renewed mind is the canvas on which the Holy Spirit of God can paint.” Bill Johnson. Suggested viewing: Elevator Worship “Evidence Now”

Is God Frozen?

God is Present Now. We have situations where we freeze frame God in the past. We need to focus on what God is doing now. Rev. 3:20 He is knocking. John 15: 1-11 Abide in the true Vine to bear Fruit. Galatians 5:16-18 Abiding is Walking in His Spirit.

Reflection on Struggle

Rejoicing in our scars; finding beauty in our pain 2 Corinthians 1: 3-5 Isaiah 61: 1-4 Making sense of pain; cope; understand; run away; hide; self medicate; alcohol; idols; live for self and comfort. “The great illusion of leadership is to think that man can be led out of the dessert by someone who has never been there.” Henri Nouwen

Are We Called to Chaos?

Ask for Wisdom (James 1: 58) Partner with His plan for you (Jer. 29:11) Stay in step with the Spirit (Gal. 5:25) Sonship, walking as a son (Romans 8: 16 & 17) Improve Servant Leadership (Luke 2:52) Legacy (Luke 13:22 & Acts 2:39)

He is in the Details

Psalm 139 displays the wonderful details of God’s creation in the world and in us. We are our strengths but we are also our God-ordained weaknesses. Corrie shares tools to help identify our core values, fundamental beliefs that create unwavering principles to guide our life choices.
