Sunday Highlights – MORE
Ouchy-wa-wa! It seems that today’s message at Cross Point is a subject that God won’t allow me NOT to hear. Messages of faith, trusting God, relinquishing control, surrendering my will are bombarding me from all sides. I can’t ignore them so I’m trying to listen.
Our new series is entitled “Searching for MORE than Mediocre” and I know that it’s going to challenge me in a big way.
Here are my notes from Pete‘s message today. *Read at your own risk. 🙂
Regret has a unique sting because you know it was within your power to do something different but you didn’t.
Our search for more is related to our lack of faith.
“And without faith it is impossible to please God.” Hebrews 11:6
“Faith is the most vital building block in your relationship to God” Steven Furtick
When you come to a faith-filled moment in your life where God is asking more of you, you will be tempted to retreat to your hiding place. Your hiding place might be:
- Fear – you’re afraid to make a mistake
- Procrastination – you hide behind the word “someday”
What’s your hiding place? What’s your first reaction when God approaches you with a faith-filled moment?
In the story of Joshua, the faithlessness of that moment impacted an entire generation.
When you shrink back from God, it doesn’t just affect you. It impacts those around you and possibly generations to come.
Big moves of God are almost always preceded by obedience to him in small things.
Joshua 10:8, 12-13
What is your sun stand still prayer? What in your life do you so desperately need and want to see happen that is so far beyond your gifted-ness and abilities that you’re embarrassed to say out loud?
What seems impossible to me is not remotely difficult with God.
Contact with the Creator is essential for faith-filled living.
What does your next step need to be in your faith journey?
