Aligning yourself with God Part 5: Obed-Edom

Preacher: Pastor Trevor
Editor: Emmanuel

We can run and not know what we are running for because our focus changes in life even with the right motive during the race
When focus is lost then we become bitter Christian. The word of God should be our yardstick
1 chronicles 13:5-14
It doesn’t matter what your intention are, does it follow what God wants?
David was afraid and that’s the fear of the Lord, the beginning of wisdom
Align yourself with the word of God to understand what displease or please him.
God’s word is up-to-date, no need for update
It’s the presence of God that made the difference for Obed-Edom
Obed-Edom: means servant of the Edom (Esau)
Obed-Edom is a Gittite, he is from Gath (Goliath)
1 chron 15:15-18, 16:37
Obed-Edom made himself available for everything that was needed for the ark
When you receive the presence of God, priority changes

You need to make yourself available

Preacher: Pastor Trevor
Editor: Precious Adams

Determination is important for Christians in order to please God
1 Corinthians 2:1-5, 2 Corinthians 2:1
Determined = in Greek is krinō
Meaning of determination:
– To pronounce an opinion concerning right and wrong
– To be of opinion, deem, think
– To determine, resolve, decree, to esteem
You have to know the power of God and the power of his resurrection to be aligned. Romans 14:5
As a believer what is your determination?
Acts 9:1-2, Acts:20
Is your determination right or wrong?
In your weakness let God’s strength show through you
Phil 3:13-14
Forget what is in the past, don’t let the past ruin the future and look to the things that God has in store for you.
Press on be determined.
2 Peter 3:14

When put into temptation think:
How could I sin against my God?

Is your treasure in the kingdom of God?
“But the people who know their God shall do great exploits”

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

Big question?
what is something you desire?

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.

Preacher: Pastor Trevor
Editor: Emmanuel

We can miss out if we are focused on our ways of doing things
God will not judge you by your intention but by your actions. When God is birthing something within us, we need to align ourselves with God.
We can come into spiritual disorientation
Proverbs 14:12
Don’t copy what you like from the Bible to justify your actions. When you start to read the Bible as a love letter, it changes your perspective
When the Lord wants to do a new thing, he always re-position us
Align yourself and blessings will follow
Acts 8:1-4
Are you part of the faith community?
Are you in any ungodly relationship?
Psalm 139:23, 2 corith 13:5
Are you in the center of God’s will?

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

God is talking about attitude
We have real enemies and we have real blessings
We need to align ourselves with God

True meaning of Christmas

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
