Ready, Set, Grow

 

“A lack of growth is not just a failure to progress but is an automatic regress.”

In our journey, there’s the REALIZATION of God, and then there’s the ACTIVATION of the life that follows God.

Matthew 14:27-29

Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you, tell me to come to you on the water,” Peter replied. 

“Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 

Exodus 6:6-8

“Therefore, say to the Israelites: ‘I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment.  I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. 

 

  • The Cup of Sanctification
  • The Cup of Deliverance
  • The Cup of Redemption
  • The Cup of Praise

 

 

Ephesians 1:17-18

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers

 

  • Know GOD
  • Find FREEDOM
  • Discover PURPOSE
  • Make a DIFFERENCE

 

 

“It is not just God’s genuine desire to KNOW US but to have us KNOW HIM.”

 

  • ENGAGE with God EMOTIONALLY

 

2 Corinthians 5:21

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Isaiah 53:5 NLT

But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.

“We need to let the same affection we have for everything God gave us become the affection we feel about God Himself.”

 

  • ALIGN yourself POSITIONALLY

 

“We need to invest the same amount of time into God that we invest into getting everything we want from God.”

Psalm 141:2

May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.

Psalm 145:18

The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

Psalm 1:1-4

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.

 

  • Grow – Make growth REACTIONAL instead of OPTIONAL

 

“KNOWING GOD is not in the REALIZATION but in the ACTIVATION of faith.”
