Notes from Part 1

·       Frustration is your friend. Frustration ignites transformation

·       Life will not go as planned. The only thing that is predictable is the unpredictable

·       The immature have to stay in crisis to stay committed. Many people don’t know how to evolve in their reliance on God. Spiritual immaturity is preventing your own success.

·       We will never see what God has in store for us if we are obsessed with what he has for everyone else.

·       Move without the detail- walk by faith, not by sight

·       The plan God created for you future better than any plan you could create for yourself

·       God WILL outdo himself in your future.

·       Saul v David, The people’s pick v. God’s pick, what people thought they wanted V what they really needed. Move on from Saul to get to your David.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” –Jeremiah 29:11.  Letting go of the life you thought you wanted is way easier said than done, and it won’t happen overnight; it’s a process. At the core of that process is the ability to fully submit to God’s will which requires complete, whole-hearted trust in God, His plan, and his Promises. This week I want you to reflect on this particular promise and how you can apply it to your own life.


This week’s assignment

·       Has there been a situation in your life that you felt stuck in or were frustrated with? What could God have been trying to get you to move on from?

·       Samuel’s story didn’t end with him taking the oil to Jesse’s house! Read the rest of 1 Samuel 16 and do a SOAP note.
