“Developing Your Foundation”
NKj Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
Never allow anyone except God to program your life.
never allow anyone except God to categorize your value.
nas Matt 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of my father who is in heaven. 22 “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name cast out demons, and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 “And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness. 24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine, and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house upon the rock. 25 “And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded upon the rock. 26 “And everyone who hears these words of mine, and does not act upon them, will be like a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand. 27 “And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and it fell, and great was its fall.”
mess Matt. 7:21“Knowing the correct password—saying ‘master, master,’ for instance—isn’t going to get you anywhere with me. What is required is serious obedience—doing what my father wills.
22 I can see it now—at the final judgment thousands strutting up to me and saying, ‘Master, we preached the message, we bashed the demons, our god-sponsored projects had everyone talking.’
23 And do you know what I am going to say? ‘You missed the boat. All you did was use me to make yourselves important. You don’t impress me one bit. You’re out of here.’ 24 “These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. 25 Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock. 26 “But if you just use my words in bible studies and don’t work them into your life, you are like a stupid carpenter who built his house on the sandy beach. 27 when a storm rolled in and the waves came up, it collapsed like a house of cards.”
Matt. 6:19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal;
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 “The lamp of the body is the eye; if therefore your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light.
23 “But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
When you meditate on the word your eye becomes single.
Matt. 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of my father who is in heaven. 22 “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name cast out demons, and in your name perform many miracles?’
2 Cor. 4:6 For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the one who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 7 But we have this treasure (LIGHT) in earthen vessels, that the surpassing greatness of the power may be of God and not from ourselves
IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO RAISE YOUR SELF IMAGE UNTIL YOU KNOW THE CHRIST IMAGE.
IF YOU ARE NOT BUILDING A CHRIST IMAGE BUT A SELF IMAGE YOU WILL NEED PEOPLE APPROVAL TO MAKE YOU SHINE.
Josh. 1:6 “Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.
7 “Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which moses my servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.
9 “Have i not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
STRENGTH DOES NOT COME FROM THE SHOUTING. STRENGTH COMES FROM THE MEDITATING.
Meditating on the word will give you the strength and the courage to do.
MEDITATION WILL CAUSE WHAT’S IN YOU TO BE ACTIVATED
