EVER THOUGHT, IT AIN’T WORKING

WHY?

VOWS

Ecclesiastes 5:5-6  Better not to vow than to vow and not pay.   Do not let your mouth cause your flesh to sin, nor say before the messenger of God that it was an error. Why should God be angry at your excuse and destroy the work of your hands? 
WHAT ARE WE SAYING……YOU’RE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS

FAILURE, DISAPPOINTMENTS, FRUSTRATION

 Jeremiah 15:18  Why is my pain perpetual And my wound incurable, Which refuses to be healed? Will You surely be to me like an unreliable stream, As waters that fail? 
Philippians 3:13-14 I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead. I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus.

DOUBT & UNBELIEF

Matthew 13:58  And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
Mark 16:14 Then Jesus appeared before the eleven apostles as they were eating a meal. He corrected them for having such hard, unbelieving hearts because they did not believe those who saw him after his resurrection.

DON’T GIVE UP!

Eph 6:13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 

Romans 8:18-19 I am convinced that any suffering we endure is less than nothing compared to the magnitude of glory that is about to be unveiled within us. The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters

 Romans 8:28-30 So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose. For he knew all about us before we were born and he destined us from the beginning to share the likeness of his Son. This means the Son is the oldest among a vast family of brothers and sisters who will become just like him. Having determined our destiny ahead of time, he called us to himself and transferred his perfect righteousness to everyone he called. And those who possess his perfect righteousness he co-glorified with his Son!

BELIEVE

Hebrews 11:1-3 Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen. This testimony of faith is what previous generations were commended for. Faith empowers us to see that the universe was created and beautifully coordinated by the power of God’s words! He spoke and the invisible realm gave birth to all that is seen.

John 6:29 Jesus answered, “The work you can do for God starts with believing in the One he has sent.”

STOP STINKING THINKING

1Corinthians 2:16  For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. 
1 John 2-15-17 Don’t set the affections of your heart on this world or in loving the things of the world. The love of the Father and the love of the world are incompatible. For all that the world can offer us—the gratification of our flesh, the allurement of the things of the world, and the obsession with status and importance —none of these things come from the Father but from the world. This world and its desires are in the process of passing away, but those who love to do the will of God live forever.

WALK IN FREEDOM

1 John 2 : 12-13 I remind you, dear children: your sins have been permanently removed because of the power of his name.  I remind you, fathers and mothers: you have a relationship with the One who has existed from the beginning.  And I remind you, young people: you have defeated the Evil One.
1John 4:4 Little children, you can be certain that you belong to God and have conquered them, for the One who is living in you is far greater than the one who is in the world
