Moving Forward Through the Madness 5

“EXPOSURE THAT CREATES CONVICTION”

 

Kjv Psa 18:28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. 29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

 

SPIRITUAL ACTIVITY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ACTIVITY THERE IS! 

 

FAITH IS BELIEVING – IT’S AN ATTITUDE – AN ACTION

MOVE THROUGH THE MADNESS, DARKNESS

  1. PRAISING GOD IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS TO MOVE ON

THE DEVIL WANTS TO STOP YOUR PROGRESS AND SILENCE YOUR PRAISE

  1. CONFIDENCE – BEING FULLY PERSUADED – CONVICTION

YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO FULFILL GOD’S PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE UNTIL YOURE CONFIDENT OF WHEN HE’S SPEAKING TO YOU

MOVING FORWARD – GOING OVER IS A RESULT OF BEING FULLY PERSUADED

NIV Rom. 4:19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead —since he was about a hundred years old —and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. 20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, 21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.

 

PERSUADE MEANS: TO CONVINCE, TO AGREE, TO BELIEVE, HAVE CONFIDENCE, TO TRUST

NOTICE VS 21 “FULLY PERSUADED” – COMPLETE – FULL – ASSURED

 

BEING FULLY PERSUADED IS BASED ON RELATIONSHIP

 

Kjv 2Tim. 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I knowwhom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

 

Ex. ABRAHAM CHANGED HIS NAME AT 99

HE’S NOT TRYING TO TALK HIMSELF INTO IT – HE WAS CONVINCED

IT’S DIFFICULT TO COPY THE ACTIONS WITHOUT THE CONVICTION

POWER TO PERFORM COMES BY EXPOSURE TO THE WORD

Ex. 14:10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the LORD.

 

11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?

 

13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more forever. 14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

 

15 And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they GO FORWARD

16 But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
