Getting To Where You Don't Know You're Going!
January 7-8, 2017
"We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps." Proverbs 16:9 (NLT)
- Embrace The AMBIGUITY
"So don't worry about these things, saying, 'What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?' These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need." Matthew 6:31-33 (NLT)
ACTION PLAN: When you get out of bed every morning this week, the moment your feet touch the floor, say a quick prayer of surrender. Offer the ambiguity of the day over to God.
- Persevere Through ADVERSITY
"We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed." 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 (NLT)
- Rest In His AUTHORITY
"Then Job replied to the Lord: 'I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.'" Job 42:1-2 (NIV)
ACTION PLAN: On a post-it note, write down one thing you are worried about or that is causing you trouble. Put it on your bathroom mirror and turn it over to God each time you read it.
And While You're At It . . .
Remember Your IDENTITY
Remain In COMMUNITY
- Resist INSECURITY
- Reject CONFORMITY
- Run After HUMILITY
ACTION PLAN: Each time you look in that same mirror, smile and rejoice that you are on a path that you may not understand, but God knows where he is taking you.
