Steps to My Change

By April 26, 2012 Sermon Notes

Definition of CHANGE :TO MAKE OR BECOME DIFFERENT

• I’m chosen for this.

You can’t pick and choose when your chosen
When God chose you, He gave you the ability to change.

He allowed you to go through this so He can build you.

He causes people to talk to you the way they do so He can equip you.
• When you are chosen you don’t relate to everyone . . . You don’t fit in . . .

There is a reason why you have been in this condition for so long.
Who do chosen people hang out with? You have to walk alone when you are chosen.
CHOSEN PEOPLE MUST CHANGE!!!!

SEEK: to attempt to find; the desire to obtain
Matthew 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

² We must seek God about the problems in our lives and not try to handle it alone

ALL these things!!! God has our best interest in mind. We don’t have to help God.

IDENTIFY: indicate who or what
Luke 9:23-27
“And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God.”

Whose problem is it really? God’s or our’s

• Don’t be ashamed to use Gods word to fight your problems

• Don’t allow problems to remain in your life without acknowledging them and taking authority over them.

Unidentified problems can exist in our lives and take over.

If we don’t know what’s going on how can we fight back?

They’re like UFO’S, we see them but are clueless of how to attack them

DECIDE: reach, make, or come to a decision about something; bring to an end; settle conclusively; “The case was decided”;

I’m ready to change and start living in the change.
Let’s not settle for survival anymore. Let’s get to authentic living.
Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

EXECUTE: carry through: put in effect; carry out the legalities of;

Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him
•Faith is the fuel of our change
•Faithis action!!!
•My Faithsays, “ I want to change!!”

When you WANT to do something you work on it when you have time.

When you are DEDICATED to something you make time to do it
Are we dedicated to the change God wants for us?
