2 Guidance of a Personal Savior

3 2 2

4 “…what God has planned for those who love him; we cannot begin to imagine” —1 Cor. 2:9a 3 3

5  I had no idea but I knew change was needed…  An atheist for 36 years I didn’t trust God or anyone  So, I challenged God to prove himself  “Believe and be amazed for when God’s promises are finally fulfilled in your life, Wow!" Luke 1:45  My 20-year journey on life’s highway was possible only with the guidance of a personal savior, Jesus  This journey God took me was over life’s highway and into or at least closer to the promised-land 4 4

6  (0) Faith (didn’t start out that way…)  There were problems but  (1) Aim for the dream  Most do not know  (2) Believe in God  And in the unknown  (3) Confess to possess  More than talk is required 5 5

7  (4) Delight in the Lord;  Design, devotion, discipline  (5) Express yourself in love;  Attitude, Behavior, Communication  (6) Forgive as God forgives;  Forgive others so you can be forgiven  (7) Give as you receive throughout life  When ready, the HS sends us. 6 6

8  Christian biblical meditation  Is not mindless (empty your mind of all thought)  Is reflective thinking so that “Your Word I hid in my heart so as not to sin against you" (Psalm 119:11).  Read the verse repeatedly  Think on the verse continually  Speak it aloud and talk to others  Apply it to your life in practical ways  Teach it and post the Word around the home 7 7

9  “Teach it to your children, talk about it when sitting in your house, as you walk along, and when you lie down and rise up" (Deut 6:7)  We teach "what is true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report; anything of virtue and praise we think upon these" (Philippians 4:8)  Examine problem areas in your own life  What does Scripture say to do?  Penalty of disobedience  Benefit of obedience 8 8

10  Problem: Selfishness is seeking for our self and not that for Jesus  Scripture: Who sees his brother in need and does not have compassion, how does the love of God dwell in him? (1John 3:17)  Solution: Do for others for as you give you receive good measure, pressed down, shaken together, overflowing …  Disobey: Hebrews 12:5-6, “do not despise the reprimand of the Lord, nor be discouraged when rebuked”; The Strawberry Patch.docxThe Strawberry Patch.docxApplication 9 9

11  The Storm of Correction enters our lives when we do not obey God (See Act 27:42-44). Jonah knew about these. A storm arose and tossed him overboard where he was swallowed by a fish for rebelling against the Lord (Jon_1:10).  Not all storms in life are correction (in this world we will have troubles Jesus warned) yet, sometimes the Lord sends a storm to get us on track again.  Obey: When we obey we do not have God’s correction but his blessings and do you not know the difference between a correction and a blessing! Part 2 10
