Get In the Zone
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Psalms 139:16 (NIV)
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Before you were born, God had a plan and purpose for your life.
James 4:13 (NIV)
13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.”
Sovereign, Moral, and Personal Will of God.
You can position yourself in the zone – so if God is looking for someone to do something great, He will choose you!
2 questions to ask daily to help position yourself in the sovereign and moral Will of God…
1. What am I doing that I should not be doing?
23Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
2. What am I not doing that I should be doing?
If we’re not careful, we’ll live a saved life but not a free life.
6 questions to seek God’s personal will for your life…
1. Am I in a right relationship with God?
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
2. What does the Bible say?
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
3. What would Jesus do?
14But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. 17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.
4. Have I sought Godly counsel?
For lack of guidance a nation falls, but victory is won through many advisers.
5. Do I sense God’s peace?
6. Is it MY will or God’s will?
God will fulfill you in a way that the world never can.
"I yield my life to Your Will."
