ReCAP - THE FAVOR OF GOD IS: The Guarantee of His presence & the provision of His power to accomplish His special purpose in & through my life. God’s favor is not for our convenience, but for His Purpose in us 1. Expect - Frame your world with favor. 2. Recognize - Open our eyes to Divine opportunity. 3. Respond - Give yourself to obedience.
LET GO OF THE GOOD TO GRAB HOLD OF THE UPGRADE. BETTER IS ONE DAY WITH GOD HOW DO YOU HAVE A DAY WITH GOD? LIVE WITH AN ONGOING, UNENDING AWARENESS OF GOD’S PRESENCE. DEVELOP THE HABIT OF CONSTANT COMMUNICATION WITH GOD. INSTANT OBEDIENCE TO GOD. A DAILY DESPERATION FOR GOD.
One Handful Living
IT IS BETTER TO HAVE LESS OF WHAT DOESN’T MATTER AND MORE OF WHAT DOES. Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 4:6
Then [Jesus] said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." Luke 12:15 "This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God." Luke 12:21 DEFINE WHAT DOES MATTERS MOST:
ONE HANDFUL LIVING LET GO OF WHAT DOESN’T MATTER. …let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Heb 12:1
CUT BACK THROW OUT TURN OFF
LIVE/FIGHT FOR WHAT DOES MATTER. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes." Neh 4:14 My life is too valuable, my calling too great, my God is too good to waste my life on meaningless things.
Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 4:6 WITH ONLY ONE HANDFUL YOU CAN HELP SOMEONE. YOU CAN GIVE. YOU CAN ENCOURAGE. YOU CAN REST.
