The epitome of faith is keeping your eyes on God, believing what he said, and obeying. Marching to “meet the problem” God’s way, while singing worship songs!
What I believe God thinks about me, is one of the most influential things in my life.
The greatest commandment is to love God. Out of this flows obedience!
When we resolve a problem without God, or move forward without obeying God, we actually weaken our position – even if it doesn’t feel like it at the moment!
God wants to be strong on my behalf. His eyes are scanning the Earth, looking for people he can support (2 Chronicles 16:9)!
The attitude: The prophet encouraged Asa to be intentional about everything he did.
Bible Verses: 2 Chronicles 14
Big question: How did Asa have confidence that God would fight for him? How can we have confidence that God is on our side?
THE MAIN THING! Asa had confidence in God because he was doing what God was doing!
Jesus is our goal. “Jesus is our touchdown.” Moves towards the goal!
Being satisfied with things in the world stop us from pursuing God.
Big Question: How do we make wise choices?
Rehoboam takes three days to consider the issue (great choice!) and meets with the elders for advice (super great choice!).
Reheboam takes his friend’s advice, and the nation collapses. Israel splits into Israel and Judah, and never fully reunites.
What’s the best way to genuinely love life? How do I find happiness and blessing? “For a happier soul make wisdom your goal!”
The reality is: If you aren’t worshiping Jesus, you aren’t worshiping God. If you aren’t obeying Jesus, you aren’t obeying God.
