I Found Fulfillment
God is calling us to something much greater than what we’ve always known.
Psalm 37:23 (NKJV)—The steps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord.
He has always called them to move from what they’ve always known to something new.
Deuteronomy 30:19—I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live
Will I do what I’ve always done or is it time for something new?
Will you let what you’ve always known and always done continue to take you where you always end up, or is it time for something new?
Proverbs 26:11—“Like a dog returns to his vomit, so the fool repeats his folly.”
- We must live our lives and not just let our lives happen.
Most of us have no idea what we are capable of because we’ve let the culture define us instead of the creator.
What’s defining you is also directing you, and the culture and the creator are not going the same direction.
You can never experience real life change until you are willing to make real life changes.
Real life change begins with deciding who you are going to follow.
Matthew 7:13 (NKJV)—wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.
When you’re following what God has for YOUR LIFE you can’t follow what everybody else wants, what everybody else is doing, where everybody else is going.
You might have to walk alone; you might have to blaze your own trail.
You can’t hold onto your old life and expect to experience a new on at same time.
Proverbs 19:21—There are many plans in a man’s heart, but it’s the LORD's purpose that will prevail.
When we let God’s purpose take the place of our plans; we will find what we’ve always been looking for.
1 Corinthians 3:6-8 (NKJV)—I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. 8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
