(#PowerandPurpose) The 11th Commandment...!





People with a clear-cut sense of purpose can withstand many challenges, inconveniences, and difficulties that others cannot. They do not give up. They do not break the 11th commandment, “Thou Shalt Not Whine.”

(#PowerandPurpose) Living Purpose With Trouble in Mind

The first thing is to have faith in God.  The second thing is that we can speak in confidence when we pray.  Jesus said that when you ask God for something in your prayers, believe that you receive them and you will have them.  Keep in mind that this isn’t a blank check so to speak since we know that our desires will be affected by the Spirit of God that lives in us.

Why can’t we just believe that God will work it out—not that we just sit back and do nothing though?  Why can’t we just trust God?  What happens such that the baby faith that we had in God is replaced by uncertainty and fear to trust?  Life happens.  Consider what Jesus said about that with regard to the Word of God.

Matthew 13:22 (NKJV) -- {22} Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.

Life comes in and shows us a picture that is contrary to our faith.  Life shows us how people are suffering and dying and we start to wonder why we should expect not to be a part of that suffering group.  We start to lose faith in God because we are not sure if God will do it for us.  We may believe that He can do anything, but that He may not do it for us.  Again, why not just believe God all the way.  If it turned out bad then at least I was faithful until the end.  Why not do that since we don’t know what tomorrow holds anyway?  Why not pursue tomorrow as if things will work out?

(#PowerandPurpose) Purpose-Packaged Talents

You have talents that came with the package. All have at least one thing that you can do better than anyone else. Use it for God's purpose.

There are gifts that God has given to us to be used in the Church for God's glory and purpose.

Your purpose defines who you are.

Your purpose will drive you. Even when you are low on gas.



Your purpose will motivate you when you feel like hanging up the gloves.

Why didn't Muhammad Ali retire after he fought Foreman?  Because his purpose was bigger than George Foreman.

Why didn't Roberto Duran stop fighting after his defeat to Sugar Ray Leonard?  Because he was destined to be a fighter and no matter what.  That's all he knew what to do.

Purpose will give you determination to conquer.

(#PowerandPurpose) My Purpose is No Mistake



Success is NOT PURPOSE. Many people in the world are successful and have millions of dollars but they live a miserable life because they have no purpose.

What is purpose?



Related words destination, direction; aim, goal, mission, objective, point; ambition, aspiration; proposal, proposition the will of God is His purpose.

You were designed by God for a specific purpose. Some shorter, some taller, some skinny, some chubby, some have one eye, some have two. No matter what God loves you and will use you the way that you are. You are not a mistake.

Far Greater Purpose (#PowerandPurpose)




The purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. It's far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and ambitions. If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, you must begin with God.

(#PowerandPurpose) Attracting Other People with Your Purpose

When you have  a clearly defined purpose for your life, the amazing thing is, when you know where you’re going, other people want to come along.  You’ll find that other people want to jump on your bandwagon, other people want to help.  The world is looking for people of purpose.  You’re an example.

When Troy started MCC in 1968 he was very clear about what MCC was to be and, over the years, others have come along and joined him in offering a church home which does not discriminate.

Nothing is quite as powerful as a life lived on purpose.  If you want to look at the people who have made the greatest impact in this world, they weren’t the smartest or the wealthiest or the best educated.  The people who’ve made the greatest impact are those people who have purpose and passion.  They have a purpose that they feel passionate about.  Another word for that is conviction.  Conviction rules the world.  The people who have had the deepest convictions for right or for wrong are those who have made the greatest difference in this world.  They have believed what they’ve believed.  They had a purpose that they were passionate about.  The world follows people with a purpose.

Concentration of Purpose (#PowerandPurpose)

A purpose allows you to focus your life.  It gives you a track to run on.    I often find that I don't have enough time to do everything I want to do.  This is because I fall for the lie of the world which says  “You can have it all!”

You can’t have it all.  It’s not true.  You cannot have it all.  Selection is the name of the game and you have to choose what you’re going to build your life around.  Don’t try to have it all.  You can’t do everything in life.  The Good News is God doesn’t expect you to do everything in life.  And on top of that, there’s only a few things worth doing in the first place.  When you get a purpose,  it allows you to focus, to concentrate your life.  Because when you develop a purpose statement for your life, it defines not only what you do but what you don’t do.  It eliminates a bunch of the trivia.    I have discovered that most people don’t intend to waste their life.  They don’t intentionally mess up.  They don’t intentionally sabotage their own life.  They don’t intentionally blow it.  But they do it because they get distracted.  They get distracted from what’s really important.  We’re going to talk about that next week, helping you to clarify what are your own values that are really important to you.

If you want to make a difference in your life and you want to find fulfillment, you must be a focused person.

Purpose Creates Motivation (#PowerandPurpose)

Purpose decreases frustration and increases motivation.

If I don’t have a purpose, why get out of bed?  Why get up in the morning?  Why make any effort.  The fact is, most people just kind of drift through life.  They’re kind of battered around.  They’re controlled by circumstances.  You talk to somebody and say, "How's it going?” and they say, “Not so bad considering the  circumstances.”  You want to say, “What are you doing under them?!?”  You should be on top of them.  Circumstances are like a feather mattress.  You get underneath  them and you suffocate.  You get on top and you rest easy.

Let me tell you the secret of lasting change.  Let me tell you the secret of energy, of motivation, of enthusiasm in life.  How do you get motivated in life?  Simple.  Discover your personal purpose in life.  When you do that, it motivates you to get out of bed.  You have a different attitude when you get up.  When you wake up in the morning you can either say, “Good morning, Lord!” or “Good Lord, it’s morning!”  Part of the difference is, do you have a purpose?  Do you have a purpose in life?

The secret of energy and enthusiasm and motivation is to discover your life purpose.  Why?  Because having the purpose gives you hope.  And everybody needs hope to keep going.

The Bible says that you cannot even imagine what God wants to do in your life.  Ephesians 3:20 says that “God is able to do far more than we think or ask or imagine, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, hopes and dreams.”  That’s what God wants to do in your life.  Discover your plan, your purpose.  Your frustration will decrease, your motivation will increase.

Happiness Power (#PowerandPurpose)

Are you living the kind of life that guarantees true joy and happiness? Maybe there are one or more areas of your life that need work today. If so, then now is the time to come to Jesus and get it settled. Why live anything less than a happy, fulfilling Christian life? You don’t have to live that way, therefore why would you? The secret of true happiness in the Christian life lies in humility before God and men, holiness in your walk before God and acceptance of what the Lord Jesus Christ has done for you in salvation. Are there areas that need work? If so, bring them to Him tonight and He will make them right!

The Power and Purpose of Lack (#PowerandPurpose)

READ:  Luke 19:1-10


There are people who seem to possess everything this world holds in value and esteem. These people are looked upon by others as being successful. Perhaps you have even been jealous of someone who you thought had more than you did. Zacchaeus is one of those people who had it all. He was a rich man, v. 2, and he was a man of position and power, v. 2. I am sure there were many in Jericho and the surrounding area who would have gladly traded places with Zacchaeus. Yet, there was more to Zacchaeus than met the eye. Sure he was successful by the world's standards, but you should never judge a book by its cover. It was what Zaccheaus lacked that made the difference in his life. But, when this little man met a great big God, he got his need met completely.

Release the Fear (#PowerandPurpose)


Regardless of the fears you may have today, they are little when they are placed next to the Lord. If He can create the universe out of nothing; surely He can meet your need! If He can keep Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego through the fiery furnace, He can take care of you! If He can secure Daniel in the lion’s den, He can take care of you! If He can feed three million Jews in the desert for forty years, He can take care of you! If He can defeat sin, death, Hell, the grave and Satan using an old rugged cross and an empty tomb, He can take care of you! If He can save you from your sins, He can take care of you!


Whatever you fear today, bring it to Him, and leave it in His hand. He is more than able to take care of you, Eph. 3:20. (Ill. Jesus is the Lord of the little, even little fears!)

Handling What's Handling Your (#PowerandPurpose)



Sometimes God is like that stagecoach driver. He will allow things to enter our lives that nearly devastate us. But, He does it to grow us and teach us more about Him. Now, we all know that trouble and trials are part and parcel of the human life. After all, Job said it, Job 14:1; Job 5:7. And so did Jesus, John 16:33. Burdens, troubles, trials and difficulties are going to come our way! That is a given.






TRUST YOUR BURDENS TO THE RIGHT PROVISIONS


There are times when the Lord changes your situation in an instant, removing your burden.
There are times when the Lord will leave the burden on your shoulders, but He will lighten the burden a little bit. He did this for Ruth when He allowed her path to cross that of Boaz, Ruth 2-3!

This is the most common aid we receive from Him. He gives us grace to carry the load we have been assigned, 2 Cor. 12:9. (Ill. The glory of Him changing us in our situation instead of Him just changing our situation.)

What’s handling you? Why don’t you just bring it to Him? He knows how to handle what’s handling you!

The Power of the Promise of Prosperity (#PowerandPurpose)

Now the Lord says that if you will seek His kingdom and His righteousness, "all these things shall be added unto you." Now what "things" was the Lord referring to? He was talking about all the things that people worry about. In v.19 we are told that people worry about finances. "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal."


You don't need everything you want. I wish I had all the money back that I had spent in my life on things that I wanted that I didn't really need.


You don't want everything you need. I never wanted one whipping that I ever got, but I needed everyone of them.


God doesn't give us everything we want. I, for one, am so glad that He doesn't. You know, one of the greatest blessings of God is found in those things that He doesn't give us. I read one time the confession of an unknown confederate soldier that tremendously blessed me. Listen to it.

Power to Prioritize (#PowerandPurpose)

If your priorities are not in order, your life will not be in order. If your priorities are not right, you won't be right. You don't have to pray about what your number one priority in life ought to be. You don't have to think about it. You don't have to discuss it. You don't have to look for it.  You just have to do it. Because Jesus has already told us what our first priority ought to be, "seek ye first the kingdom of God."   The word seek means to "actively pursue" or "to go after." It's in the present tense. It means continuously. Every day of your life you ought to seek first the kingdom of God.




But it is not enough to seek the Lord. You must seek Him first. Jesus said, "seek first the kingdom of God." First things first means putting the Father first. There are three words I want you to circle in this passage. In v.30 circle the word faith. In v.32 circle the word Father. In v.33 circle the word first. You know the Bible says in Heb. 11:6, "Without faith it is impossible to please him.Do you know what faith is? Faith is putting the Father first. Let me tell you something. Jesus does not want a place in your life. Jesus does not even want prominence in your life. Jesus wants preeminence in your life.

The Power and Purpose of the Future (#PowerandPurpose)

GOD’S PLAN INCLUDES GIVING US A HOPE AND A FUTURE!

Hope is defined as "confident trust with the expectation of fullfillment."  God wants us to hope & trust in him for a brighter tommorrow! Our ultimate hope rests in eternity with God!  Along with hope comes peace!  God has given us a sense of hope & peace that we can trust in him no matter what we’re going through that there will be a brighter tommorrow!

He wants us to prosper!  Prosperity means to succeed or thrive.  God didn’t mean money or material things nessecarily, or just them alone!  He was also talking about being prospered with intangible things, (I.e, peace, joy, love, hope, happiness.)  The material things will come, but that should not and cannot become the central focus.

God has a plan of prosperity for your life!

The Power of Provision (#PowerandPurpose)

God stands ready to bless you, He wants to bless you.  He loves to bless His Children, it gives Him great pleasure!

Jesus, has already done everything that could be done, for us to receive His Fathers blessing.

He’s already paid our ransom for our sins with His blood, and He’s already provided for our healing with His body.  He is willing to give us access to everything He has and has done for us!  The rest is up to us, we are the most blessed people on earth because of it.

That’s why God’s word says, we can be the head and not the tail!

There is nothing that we will ever come up against in this life that He has not provided for!
He has abundantly provided, He is a God of more than enough, not a God of barely enough.


When you stop and think about it, He could not have made it any easier for us.

The solutions to all of lives problems, have always been there waiting, just waiting for us to step into them and use them.

S.T.R.I.D.E. in Your Purpose (#PowerandPurpose)

Spiritual gifts are special abilities given to every Christian, by the grace of God, through the Holy Spirit, to be used to serve and strengthen one another and to glorify God. No two persons are exactly alike. We have different abilities, dreams, and preferences. God has created us with a specific purpose in mind, giving each of us a unique S.T.R.I.D.E. on our faith journey -- Spiritual gifts, Talents, Resources, Individual styles, Dreams, and Experiences.



Jeremiah 29:11: For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.


God has blessed you so that you can go forth and bless your world. Don’t almost give – BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE! Go and fulfill your divine purpose.

The Flow of God's Power in Your Purpose (#PowerandPurpose)

If we would see the power we must secure the presence of Jesus.

Mary & Martha knew that. When their brother Lazarus died they called for Jesus. They knew that if He was present God’s power would flow. But Jesus arrived late, and Lazarus had already died. Remember what Martha said? "If only You had been here..." SHE KNEW THAT WHERE JESUS IS THERE IS POWER. (Her problem was that she saw Jesus as the God of YESTERDAY - "if only You had been here". Jesus said that Lazarus would live again. Martha replied - "Oh, I know he will live again in the resurrection." To her Jesus was the God of yesterday and of the dim distant future! But Jesus said to her: "I AM the resurrection and the life, he that believes on Me though he be dead yet shall he live." Friends, Jesus is THE GOD OF TODAY!


If we can but secure His presence. GOD’S POWER FLOWS WHEREVER HE IS PRESENT.

Expectancy of Power and Purpose (#PowerandPurpose)

The word "expectancy" here means: "TO WAIT FOR SOMETHING IN SUSPENSE". How many know that God does "exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ever ask or think"?! The problem is that so often we come to God not expecting anything at all!


Whether it be at home in your private devotional or when you worship at the house of God WE MUST COME TO GOD WITH EXPECTANCY! "They that come to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him."


A. God wants us to come to Him with expectancy.
B. We have every Reason to come to Him with expectancy, because God always answers His people.
C. God doesn’t always answer the way we are anticipating.
When it’s not His will, God says "NO!"
When it’s not His time, God says "SLOW!"
But when it’s His will, and the time is right, God says "GO!"

The Power of Adversity & Change (#PowerandPurpose)

David was a man of many conditions. He was much tried yet much favored. The circumstances of the psalm from which our text is taken refer to the tragic era in his life when he found himself betrayed by his counselors, and his confidence was good and shook. But his trials drove him nearer to God. He knew only too well that uninterrupted prosperity was apt to cause neglect of higher things.


When a train of troubles attends us and we look at our afflictions, losses, and crosses, and cry out, "All these changes are against me!"  Let us take comfort in reading,"It is good for me that I have been afflicted." (Ps.119:71)


The paradox of faith however, is that we are built up by being broken down. God does by undoing; He makes as He breaks. Reverse and changes are tools for the shaping of character. Change is a phase of divine ministry. God takes us back to move us forward. The waves go out and returns with fuller force.

Keeping Guard of Your Mind of Purpose, #PowerandPurpose


"You must stay focused on your purpose.  The only way to do so is to keep your mind free of distractions.  This is accomplished through the study of God's word.  Filling your mind with foolish and ungodly thoughts will cause major distractions.  The Apostle Paul admonishes us to think positive, Godly thoughts."

Being Distracted From Your Purpose (#PowerandPurpose)

Distraction means to "divert your attention from something toward something else."  It can be something meaningful or meaningless.  This can be very tough especially if you have children or a spouse who have legitimate needs to address.  Often times, when you finally decide to pray, the phone will ring or someone will come into your room unannounced.  You may even get sleepy or your favorite television program will come on.  You have a real enemy who does not want us to have fellowship with the Lord.  Satan knows that when you get your groove on with God, your problems will look smaller and we can get the guidance from the Lord that you so desperately need in His presence.  There are some natural and spiritual strategies you can use to overcome anything that attempts to divert your attention from the Keeper of your soul.



PRAYER:

Heavenly Father, it amazes me how I allow little things to distract me from my goal, my purpose and from spending time with You.  You are my heart's desire and I long to be with You.  The phonecalls can wait, the laundry can wait and there is nothing on the stove, so I come now to center my thoughts on You.  Help me to make my time with You a priority so that nothing will stand in the way of our quiet time together.

In Jesus' Name, Amen.

The Power of Being Different (#PowerandPurpose)

"Dare to be different; life is so full
      Of people who follow the same push-and-pull,
Poor, plodding people who, other than name,
      Try to pretend they’re exactly the same.

God made us different; there never will be
      A replica soul made of you or me.
The charm—the glory of all creation
      rests on this very deviation.

Your charm—your own glory, too,
      Lies in being uniquely you—
Lies in being true to your best,
      That part of you different from all the rest."

Growing in faith in and relationship with the Lord requires three important things:

3. Learn and practice saying ‘yes’ to God so that we can say ‘no’ to those things that would destroy us.
