Agree - Week 2
Your future fulfillment is directly related to you finding and fulfilling your purpose.
Finding and fulfilling your purpose is how you answer God’s highest calling for your life.
But to connect to our purpose, we must first bring ourselves into alignment with God.
The greater degree that we are aligned with God, the clearer our purpose becomes.
Alignment has everything to do with finding and fulfilling your assignment.
New tires won’t fix a car that’s out of alignment.
Something is still not right when you start back down the road.
Fixing what's broken will cost you up front, but in the long run it pays off.
We are great at finding ways to adjust, compensate, and just live with it
When we adjust and compensate long enough what was obviously abnormal at first eventually becomes our new normal.
"I don’t have time to deal with what is broken in my life—It will just work itself out."
"I don’t want anybody to know what’s going on— I will just learn to live with it."
"What’s broken on the inside will always make its way to the outside."
There always comes a time when what’s broken on the inside works its way to the outside, and it doesn’t just show back up where the damage first occurred; it spreads to other areas.
Matthew 23:27 (NKJV) “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.”
When something is out of alignment internally, you eventually see and experience the results externally.
Why does this keep happening?
Why won’t my situation change?
Why doesn’t God do something?
Many of us have been putting new tires on a car that’s out of alignment for years.
You don't have to be broken forever, but you need help getting realigned.
Proverbs 16:18 (NKJV) Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
A life lived out of alignment with God will be a struggle no matter how good you get at hiding it and justifying it.
