  • SEEK GOD in all your decisions in life

  • The disciples were on a boat at night, when they saw a figure approaching. They were fearful, thinking it was a spirit. The Lord spoke to them, and Peter replied, "Lord, if it be thou, bid me to come unto thee on the water." And the Lord said, "Come." Peter began to walk, and he was so conscious of the Master, so filled with expectation of getting the Lord, that he was elated. He was looking to the Author and Finisher of faith. He was not even aware that a miracle was taking place. It was a time of life and fellowship with grace. Then, a severe gust of wind came, and Peter took his eyes off the Master. He started to live by his feelings. The moment he became fearful in his emotions, he began to perish. His unbelief and fear of perishing replaced the faith of walking on the water to his Master.

2. Find a desire to change


Desire

DESIRE

  • Strong desire is needed to achieve any goal and success.

  • If you don’t truly want something, you won’t get it.


Psalms 37 4

Psalms 37:4

Philippians 4:13

  • I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

Delight thyself in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.


Desire1

DESIRE

  • Strong desire is needed to achieve any goal and success.

  • Many people say they want something and after a while they lose interest.

  • Why? It is because they don’t know the real reason why they want this specific goal.

  • Why do you want your goal? Is there urgency?

  • Does it give you freedom? Stability? Security?

  • Without strong, burning desire and will power, you will give up quickly, you will not persist and hence you won‘t achieve what you had in mind.

  • Knowing exactly why you want something, helps keep the burning desire awake inside of you at all times and it will lead you to take action.

Bless me with positive thoughts to fuel my desire to change. And from this day forward, be the center of my life.
