IT NOW !!!
YOU WILL ACTUALLY BE SHOCKED TO KNOW THAT 8 YEAR OLDS ARE EVEN INTERESTED IN THEIR 'TOMORROW.'
For the past 2 months, we have been targeting the young peoples' ability to plan. The lesson that really caught hold was this past Tuesday. They were on the edge of their seats. I was led to use Phillipians 3:8-end as the text.
I. CONFUSION: Get it out of your life. Do not tolerate it, do not let it dictate your future. Consusion is whatever contradicts and tries to hinder the progress of the promises of God in your life. BE and CrumbSnatchers by this author. Shut it down. Tune it out. Rebuke it and the source---satan, and pray and speak the WORD OF GOD AGAINST IT---eg., I am more than a conqueror...I can do all things through Christ...they that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength!!! THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH... Luke 4 Jesus' test.
II. NO TENSION: Seek peace and pursue it...My Peace I leave with you...not as the world gives...NO COMPROMISE WITH satan...NONE. Leave the past behind and walk into your future living one day at a time sweet Jesus. Accepted in the Beloved, Seek Ye First the Kingdom by this author.
III. IN TENTION: They must have set goals, a purpose, a mission, an objective in life... Paul said that I may apprehend that for which I am also aprehended in Christ Jesus...LORD I AM AVAILABLE TO YOU....WHAT DO YOU WANT LORD...,.THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE....LOVE DOES NOT SEEK IT'S OWN BUT THE OTHERS GOOD... God, Grace & Grit by this author.
WHAT DO YOU INTEND TO DO WITH THE MYRIAD OF MINUTES YOU HAVE EACH HOUR, EACH DAY, EACH WEEK, EACH YEAR?????
IV. AT TENTION: ANYTHING THAT DISTRACTS YOU FROM YOUR DRIVE, YOUR DIRECTION, YOUR PURPOSE HAS TO BE CUT OFF AND OUT LIKE A CANCER SO YOU CAN STAY ON TRACK. IF IT DOES NOT COMPLIMENT MY INTENTION, THEN IT HAS TO GET TA STEPPIN! FootSoldiers and CHRIST: THE PREEMINENT THRONE by this author
- PREMARITAL SEX
- EXCESSIVE GAMING AND COMPUTERS
- DISRESPECTING PARENTS AND AUTHORITY
- SKIPPING CHURCH....
REMEMBER THE TRAIN THAT COULD, THE LITTLE TOOT BY ANDREW GRAMATSKY....'I THINK ICAN, I THINK I CAN...' IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW MUCH $ IT TAKES, WHO I NEED TO ADDRESS, WHERE IT IS, HOW LONG IT TAKES AS LONG AS I TRUST GOD AND STAY FOCUSSED LIKE AN EAGLE AFTER IT'S PREY.
Finally, I thank God for my BigMa, Lela Mae James, she never allowed us to say Can't because Can't never could help himself and we are not helpless! We are children of God and heirs to the throne!!! Castaway Cradles by this author.
