LIFE SEEMS TO CASCADE FROM ONE DAY INTO ANOTHER AND ALL OF A SUDDEN A DECADE HAS PASSED IN OUR LIVES OF WASTED TIME.

Today I challenge you to stop the avalanche of life and to lay hold of the PLAN that Jesus created for your life before you were ever born.

Eph. 2:10,  For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. AMP

YOU WERE FORMED WITH PERFECTION BY THE MOST FAMOUS AND CREATIVE ARTIST OF ALL……..JESUS CHRIST!

You are not an accident or just someone walking a journey on this planet…NO!

JESUS HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE TO PRODUCE THE WORKS OF HEAVEN ON THIS PLANET.  You are not an accident, or a person in survival mode.  YOU HAVE BEEN CREATED, SENT, AND EMPOWERED TO DO HIS WILL.

You were created for GOOD WORKS!

WHAT ARE GOOD WORKS?

Loving people

Sharing Jesus

Bringing healing

Showing mercy

Speaking hope

Feeding the poor

The list is never ending on how Jesus can use His life in yours to show His good works in people’s lives.

SHAKE YOURSELF TODAY AND ASK FOR REVELATION ON THE SPECIFIC CRAFTSMANSHIP THAT JESUS MOLDED YOU WITH TO CHANGE THE WORLD YOU INFLUENCE.

You are PURPOSEFULLY created for GREATNESS!

I Was HURT At CHURCH!


church-hurt

OF COURSE YOU WERE HURT AT CHURCH!!!

You are going to be offended at church.  Someone is going to say something, do something, be somewhere, not be somewhere that will offend and hurt your feelings.  The pastor did, didn’t, said, didn’t say…….

IT IS INEVITABLE!!

WHY IS IT INEVITABLE?

Because the church is filled with PEOPLE.  Real people who have real pasts and are striving to make a real future.  In that adventure of moving forward we are purging and working through the junk in our trunk from the past.  We act or react out of our flesh at times and inadvertently wound and hurt people.

THERE ARE VERY FEW TIMES THAT PEOPLE ARE HURT AT CHURCH THAT IT IS PURPOSED, PLANNED, AND INTENTIONAL.  The majority of people we hurt at church (cause we have all been wounded, and we have all wounded others), we have done it without malice in our hearts or minds.

SO WHAT DO I DO WHEN I GET HURT AT CHURCH?  It is really painful Pastor!

  1. DO THE BIBLE.  Matt. 18:15-17, Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’ 17 And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.
  2. DO NOT GO TO YOUR FRIEND AND TELL THEM OF YOUR WOUND TO VALIDATE YOUR FEELINGS.  This will place your friend in the position of taking on your wound.
  3. CHOOSE TO FORGIVE!  Matt. 6:14-15, For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
  4. IT IS A CHOICE TO SET YOURSELF FREE FROM UNFORGIVENESS WHICH TURNS TO BITTERNESS, WHICH WILL DESTROY YOUR LIFE.

We will cover more tomorrow…….

SEND THIS TO SOMEONE WHO USES THIS EXCUSE NOT TO GO TO CHURCH.

FIGHT!!! Do Not STOP FIGHTING!


fight-of-faith

MANY ARE FIGHTING THE WRONG THING!

We have not been called to fight the FACTS, we have been commissioned to FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH.

1 Tim. 6:12, Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

So many are fighting enemies that are already defeated.

THE BATTLE IS NOT WITH:

The devil – Luke 10:19a, Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy….  Col. 2:15 – Jesus made an open show of him – defeated totally!

The sin – Rom. 6:6, We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin.  If your fact is a sin – know that it is not the enemy – you have victory over it in Jesus’ name!

The sickness – 1 Pet. 2:24, by His stripes you WERE healed – past tense!  Jesus healed ALL, not just a few chosen…ALL.

The finances – Mal. 3:11, I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the LORD of hosts.  The economy is not your truth – The Word is the TRUTH.

The family – Acts 16:31, And they said, Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.

The people – Eph. 6:12, For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

OUR FIGHT IS BETWEEN OUR EARS AND BRINGING EVERY THOUGHT INTO SUBJECTION.  OUR FIGHT IS ARREST FEAR, DOUBT, ANXIETY IN JESUS’ NAME.  OUR FIGHT IS NEVER DIMINISHING IN FAITH IN THE TRUTH, BUT GROWING THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD.

THE WORD + FAITH = MIRACLES!

GOD CANNOT LIE!

DIS……COURAGE


discouraged

NEVER ALLOW THE DIS……. TO CONNECT WITH YOUR COURAGE!

Every time you have a call or a destiny (all of us) we are going to have to have COURAGE!

In fact, it was a COMMAND.

Josh 1:9, Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

WHAT IS COURAGE? Mental or moral strength, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.

The reason we must have courage is because of the challenges that come our way as we are fulfilling the call and destiny in our lives.  DIFFICULT TIMES!

WHAT IS THE DIS…..  It means to take away, loss of, distance, cease, remove.

SO WHAT IS DISCOURAGEMENT?

It is when your strength and perseverance have been TAKEN AWAY, REMOVED, LOST.

It is the process of losing HOPE.

There are so many different reasons people allow their courage to be extracted, and each experience is very real.

    1. People
    2. Money
    3. Religious structure / denominationalism
    4. Staff issues
    5. Lack of growth
    6. Judas kisses
    7. Family issues
    8. Health issues
    9. Death
    10. Gossip and rumors
    11. False accusations
    12. Abandonment
    13. Rejection

HOW DO I GET OUT OF THE DIS AND GET BACK MY COURAGE?

SPEAK TO YOURSELF / TAKE AUTHORITY OVER YOUR THOUGHTS

Ps. 42:5, Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

1 Sam. 30:6, but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.

FIND YOUR FAITH FRIENDS

Mark 5:40 – Jesus chose specific people to be with Him when He was raising the young girl from the dead.

GET A PLAN

Find someone to do some strategic planning within your life to move forward and not in reverse.

THERE ARE TWO GEARS TAKEN OUT OF MY TRANSMISSION….. REVERSE AND NEUTRAL!

GET SOME FRESH COURAGE TODAY!

THE STORES ARE SO CROWDED AT CHRISTMAS!


crowded

YOU HAVE ONE GIFT REMAINING TO PURCHASE AND YOU ENTER THE “STORE!”

Before you get to go into the store you have to find a parking spot.  You feel like a jet going in for a landing as you circle the parking lot three times to find a place so you wouldn’t have to walk a city mile.

It is bumper to bumper people who are not on their best behavior because they do not want to be there either.  You finally find the toy and you head to the register.  THE LINE is 10 miles long, looping around the store 3 times….ahhhhhh!

For some the experience is dreadful and for me it can only be explained at BURDENSOME.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

I look at the loaded parking lot, and then when entering the store you see the crowds of people all focused on buying those last few gifts for the people they love.

YET….

On a Sunday morning most church parking lots are ghost towns and in the churches you can hear the crickets chirping louder than the few who are praising.

OH THAT THE CHURCH WOULD AWAKE!

OH THAT THE CHURCH WOULD HAVE A PASSION TO REACH THE LOST AGAIN!

OH THAT THE CHURCH WOULD PRAY FOR REVIVAL!

Jesus, please put a burden on our hearts for the lost.  

THIS CHRISTMAS SERVICE YOU CAN FILL A ROW WITH THE LOST TO HEAR THE MESSAGE OF THE SAVIOR.  

Will you be burdened to be moved by the Holy Spirit to invite, pick up, call, drag souls to the house of the Father so they can hear the only hope they have for eternity?

NEXT TIME YOU ARE IN THAT CROWDED STORE SEE HOW JESUS SEES….See the LOST!

Matt. 10:8b,  Freely (without pay) you have received, freely (without charge) give.

WHAT PRESENT TO BUY THEM?


Christmas-present

WHAT PRESENT SHOULD I BUY THEM?  THEY SEEM TO HAVE EVERYTHING!

Have you ever come to the place at Christmas when you are just not sure what to buy for a gift for that special person?

I HAVE SOMEONE YOU NEED TO GET A PRESENT FOR AND THERE WAS ONLY ONE THING ON THE LIST.

This is what JESUS wants for Christmas!

Why did Jesus come? TO SAVE PEOPLE!

So the greatest gift you can give Jesus this Christmas season is you sharing the GOOD NEWS and leading a soul to Him.

I pray in the name of Jesus that you and I will have a burden for the lost like never before.

Luke 10:2, He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.

HIS PASSION IS PEOPLE.  JESUS LOVES PEOPLE AND HE CAME THAT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE TO DIE IN THEIR SINS.

This is what we are celebrating when we put up the Christmas Tree and place gifts under it.  It is not the commercialized version that we celebrate, but the root meaning.

THE GREATEST GIFT WE CAN GIVE JESUS THIS SEASON IS A NEW SOUL!

The Holy Spirit will be leading you to someone today and each day so you can harvest a soul for the Kingdom!

PAY ATTENTION……….

SEIZE THE MOMENT……..

JESUS WILL BE SO BLESSED!

Hurting People, Hurt People Pt. 1


1 John 4:7-11, Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

At His Tabernacle the Lord gives us a theme that builds the vision, and this year it is LOVING PEOPLE.  

BUT

How can you love people if you do not LOVE YOURSELF?

Matt. 22:39, And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself.

So to love other people, you must love yourself too.  There are so many people who are struggling with low self-esteem.  They self-loath in such a deep manner no matter how much they smile and paste on a happy face, they still do not like themselves inside.  This viewpoint of themselves in the long run determines how they love other people.

So why are so many people HURTING and struggling with SELF-ESTEEM?

They have been HURT THEMSELVES, or they allow OFFENSES into their lives.

HURTS

Painful wounds from people who are close to you.  Jesus had Judas in His family who betrayed Him. Maybe it was your parent who abused you in His family that betrayed Him.  Maybe it was your parent that abused you, a friend betrayed you, a spouse cheated on you, you felt God disappointed you, you were hurt in church……….. the list never ends on how wounds come into our lives.

YOUR HEART WAS BROKEN, WOUNDED, AND YOU ACHE INSIDE, YOU ARE NOW TURNING THAT INTO AN OFFENSE.

WOUNDS & OFFENSES ARE THE DEVIL’S MAIN TOOL TO DESTROY YOUR LIFE!

If Satan can get you to take on wounds that become offenses then you will never complete the vision and purpose of your life!

MORE TOMORROW….
