Aligning yourself with God Part 3

Alignment means arrangement in a straight line or in correct or appropriate relative positions a position of agreement.
When we are in alignment we are in tune
Psalms 27:4
What is one thing you are seeking in life?
What you are seeking may not be be necessarily wrong but it may not be necessary.
See the bigger picture. Instead of seeking what you want, seek for what you really need.
Psalms 61:4, Psalms 122:1
Come with reverence and expectation to the house of the Lord

Desire definition
A strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen.

Determination definition
Firmness of purpose
Controlling and deciding of the nature or outcome of something
If you have a desire and you do nothing it won’t happen but if you are determined it will come true

Desire + determination=action
Desire – determination= dreamer
-Desire – determination= couch potato

You will never grow beyond what you know…
You’ll never do more than what you desire to do….and
You’ll never be more than what you determine to be.

Dwelling is not only where you live but it is where your mind is at. You will extract the energy or vibe of what you surround yourself with

Gaze definition
To look steadily and intently, especially in admiration, surprise, or thought
Inquire of the Lord and do not inform of the Lord
Inquire the Lord with the right motive

Vision of the plumbline

Preacher: Pastor Trevor
Editor: Precious Adams

There are times in our lives when we have to be bold and there are times when we have to get on our knees.
Amos 7, Amos 5:21-22
It is important to understand the covenant of Grace. Putting on a robe when being in a covenant with God means putting on Christ.
When you are bound you have no freedom you’re being led on. We were bound by sin but with the covenant with Jesus Christ, the bondage of sin is broken
Wear the robe of righteousness. when you are in a covenant of Grace, your bondage of sin is broken however you have the choice to put on the robe of righteousness or sin
Plumbline is used for inspection
Put the plumb line in your life and see how it aligns.
Let God’s word be the plubline in everything you do.
Gods plumb line is the same today, tomorrow, and forever
Align yourself with the word of God, don’t try to base it on your standard.

When you build, things around you change
How you make a change as you build

Why are u building?
Who are you building or becoming as you build?
Where is your foundation?
Genesis 28:11-19

2. Character: Daniel 1:4-8
Tap into his mercies
How much change can we affect if we build together?
When you build, you have to be in the right position because when you build and if it is not aligned, it’s not building.
Aligning and positioning ourself is important
Is your dreams and desire inline with God’s word?
How we align is important in the midst of the building
John 5:17-19

3. Priority
The whole story of Malachi is about the stinking attitude of the priest and the people of Israel
We have lost the reverence for God
If you want a different thing, change the recipe
God is talking about attitude
We have real enemies and we have real blessings
We need to align ourselves with God

Preacher: Pastor Trevor
Editor: Emmanuel

We have to define what the true meaning of Christmas. Not as the world defines it
Matt 2:4-8
When you are waiting on the Lord, do what the waiters do: serve
How would an unbeliever describe you?
Sometimes we are not ignorant of the word of God but we choose to ignore
We need to have the attitude of the wise men. They came with gift and an attitude of worship.
Attitude of worship is defined by the treasure you give.
Don’t just do Christmas but live Christmas

The latter will be better than former. Discouragement can come in so quick but you need to find your encouragement in the Lord.
Hagg 2:10-18
There are always weakness regardless of how ‘good’ you think you are. Just because you go for prayer meeting and Bible study doesn’t guarantee that you should have “holy” pride. It should all be because of the love of God.

Holiness + touching != Holiness
Unholiness + touching = unholiness
Zech 1:1-4

Our love for God should be reignited.
Hagg 2:1-9
When the people were putting their hand to work and build the temple, they discovered that the house of God they are building cannot be compared to that of Solomon. Therefore they were discouraged.
It is very easy to find many people to discourage you than to encourage you. We are living in the world of discouragement. However, God brings a timely word when you need it.

When you are discouraged:
1. Be Strong
2. Work
3. Fear not

After you do all the 3 things above, then God will shake the heavens and the earth.

Consider your ways: Conviction

Preacher: Pastor Trevor
Editor: Emmanuel

How has our lives really changed?
Many Christians want to live up to their performance. However, your walk with God is not based on your performance.
We focus on the petty things and forget the major things which is hunger for the word of God.
Those who put their prosperity above God’s house never get what they are after
Ecclesiastes 17:1
In the midst of life trouble, God still wants you to enjoy life
Luke 12:16-21
We need to consider our ways and listen to the conviction of the holy spirit
