Something About One Thing
One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life. Psalm 27:4 Bottom Line: Do SOMETHING About One Thing, Instead Of NOTHING About Everything. NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS: They Are Too Vague: “I want to be in better shape!” Does this mean touching your toes or running a marathon? They Are Too Shallow: “I want to be a better person!” Better than who? Looking Around = Comparison Looking Inside = Character! There Are Too Many: “The one who aims at everything hits nothing.” What one thing If you only had one month to live? What one word on your tombstone? FINDING YOUR WORD: Get Specific: What kind of person do you hope to be by the end of 2016? Describe the characteristics of that person and the condition of their heart! Write every word down. Group and order them. Resist Regret: This year’s resolutions are often last year’s regrets. Don’t promise not to be what you’ve always been. Stay Future Focused: Stay focused on the vision of the person you believe God is calling you to be. There is no need to rush. Pray 21 Days - Create your list and narrow down that list into your One Word for 2016. The Word “Confession” In Greek = Homo Logeo: Same Speak - Speak The Same As God / Agree With God A One Word Prophetic Confession Spoken In Agreement With God About My Life! (Della) Ezekiel 37 NLT 9Then he said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again.’” 10So I spoke the message as he commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet—a great army. 13When this happens, O my people, you will know that I am the LORD. 14I will put my Spirit in you, and you will live again and return home to your own land. Then you will know that I, the LORD, have spoken, and I have done what I said. Yes, the LORD has spoken!’”
