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.
