CHOOSE JOY
THE BIBLE SAYS:
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Each day we have a choice: to compare life to our expectations or to thank God for what we have been given.
We can rejoice in the bad times as well as the good times.
Remember this “Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning”.

TRUSTING IN GOD
THE BIBLE SAYS:
BLESSED is the man the trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
And He shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
PSALM 17:7-8
Enough said….these are the Benefits of TRUSTING GOD.
Tough times, don’t last but….
Tough people do!

GREATER WORKS
THE BIBLE SAYS:
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If he shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.
JOHN 14:12-14
Let us not limit ourselves with God.
HE said….We would do greater works.
Greater healing, the blind to see
The lame to walk… the deaf to hear.
Don’t we want God to do greater works through us..that He may be glorified.
Ask the Savior to help you.

 What’s your Vision?
The BIBLE SAYS:
For the vision will surely come.
Habakkuk 2:3
Everyone should have a Vision.
Two things you need to know.
1.Its not over until God says it’s over.
Circumstances and people don’t have the last word…God does.
With God quitting is not an option.
When you abandon your vision… and mission
You forfeit His protection and provision.
2. If you keep the Faith…nothing can defeat you.
You may get knocked down…but you can always get up with God.
Refusing to stay down denies your enemy permission to sabotage your destiny.
Refuse to quit!

BLESSED TO BLESS OTHERS
THE BIBLE SAYS:
GOD BLESSED US, THAT ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH MAY FEAR HIM.
PSALM 67:7
It seems natural to think first about OURSELVES! This pattern is established in the first moments of life, and continues on as we age.
This attitude can dominate our spiritual lives.
Our prayer life can focus primarily on ourselves.
We can be self centered in our walk with God, and hoard His blessings for ourselves.
This PSALM reminds us to seek God’s blessing that others might fear HIM, and bring Him glory.
As He meets our needs, we need to remember that He blessed us so we might be a Blessing to others.
We are to be people who are not always seeking a hand out
But seeking to bless others with a hand up!
Give Him THANKS and PRAISE, and be generous with the resources He has given us
Be Humble in His sight
When you pray….pray for others
When you give…..dont expect anything back from the person you gave it to.

POSITION OF THE HEART
THE BIBLE SAYS:
KEEP THE HEART WITH ALL DILIGENCE, FOR OUT OF IT ARE THE ISSUES OF LIFE.
Proverbs 4:23 KJV
IT’S NOT ABOUT KNEELING OR STANDING BEFORE GOD
WHETHER WE LIFT OUR HANDS TOWARD HEAVEN OR CLOSE OUR EYES SO WE CAN FOCUS ON GOD.
WHAT REALLY MATTERS IS WHAT COMES OUT OF OUR HEART.
Everything we do flows from our heart.
When we pray, may our hearts ” always” be bowed in adoration, gratitude, and humility to our loving God, for we know that His eyes are open and His ears are attentive to the prayer of His people.

JESUS IS THE CENTER OF MY JOY
THE BIBLE SAYS:
THESE THINGS HAVE I SPOKEN UNTO YOU,
THAT MY JOY MIGHT REMAIN IN YOU, AND THAT YOUR JOY MIGHT BE FULL.
JOHN 15:11
This JOY that I have
The world didn’t give it to me.
JESUS did.
It is not manufactured by human efforts.
The Joy I HAVE
Is through Faith in God…that He will do what He says He will do.
The Joy I HAVE
Let’s me rest…safe in His arms where the devil can’t harm me.
HE soothes my doubts and calm my fears.
THERE IS NO PLACE I’D RATHER BE
THERE IS NO JOY BUT JESUS’S JOY!
THANKING GOD FOR JESUS

Whatever you Do…do it for the Lord

And whatsoever he do, do it heartily , as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Knowing that of the LORD he shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Clearly.
Be a vessel for His Spirit that He might work in others.
That they might come to the Light.
