Expecting Greater Things

2 Timothy 1:9, Ephesians 2:10

Introduction:

He not only has great plans for us- but HE GIVES US THE GRACE TO FULFILL those plans!

  1. Our Awesome Powerful God has prepared Great things for us

 – I Corinthians 2:9          

A,        “For those who love him- He already loved US- he loved us so much He laid down EVERYTHING for us—IF he gave HIS all for us- let us NOT hold ANYTHING BACK!!

  1. Two things we should not do
  2. Don’t put God in a box of your own thinking or making = according to what YOU think is plausible or possible

With Men there are things which are impossible– but with God ALL THINGS are possible!

  1. Don’t limit God with your doubt and unbelief– your short sightedness- your own circumstances- your troubles, trials and problems— Rather hand all over to God and allow those to become OPPORTUNITIES for God to show & demonstrate HIS power and might!!

Psalm 4:1 – ENLARGED me when I was in distress

The word DISTRESSED = Disappointment (discouragement, disillusionment, despondency, dejection, despair) But when we CALL out to Him=- CRY OUT TO GOD- He ‘enlarges or relieve’ us- He turns our Disappointments into HIS appointments– HIS opportunities to do great and mighty things in our lives!

  1. Our Awesome Powerful God will finish what He started
  2. Jeremiah 32:26-27—God initiates communicates facilitates – He announces, “IS ANYTHING TO HARD FOR ME?”
  3. Jeremiah 33:1-3
  4. “shut up” – a tight place, tough impossible situation, hopeless situation
  5. But God says- LOOK I am the faithful ONE- I am still here for you—what I started I will finish!

He plans to finish or complete whatever He started- He doesn’t leave things half done or dangling.  I Thess. 5:24; Phil 1:6

  1. CALL on me & I will answer thee- and show you great and mighty things

When we choose to follow Him- He will finish what He started- say “Yes” to the Lord- Our God is a miracle worker.

Do not throw your trust and have patience – Hebrews 10:35-36

“IS ANYTHING TO HARD FOR ME?”

III.       Our Awesome Powerful God has called us to a walk of obedience

I Corinthians 2:9

When we LOVE HIM—means we OBEY HIMJohn 14:15

Obey not only in the BIG things but even in the small things…remember we were delivered from the Kingdom of darkness & put into the Kingdom of Light—we are not limited to our 5 senses

FEEL, SEE, SMELL, TASTE, HEAR

We can now- SEE what God wants us to see- HEAR what God wants us to hearGalatians 5:6—Walk by Faith—NO MORE EXCUSESWALK WITH THE FATHER- WALK IN OBEDIENCE—WALK IN HIS WAYS

Its not just experiencing Spiritual things- doing all the RELIGIOUS things- being around Spiritual people- I Corinthians 10:1-5 5 ALLS—they experienced everything- miracles, the supernatural, BUT through it all they chose to start walking according to the FLESH- giving into fleshly desires & complaining— they missed out on what God had for them.

Stop crawling around- FLY with the wings you were created to fly with!

Conclusion:   Eph 3:20— Turn your eyes on the one who is able to do EXCEEDINGLY abundantly ABOVE ALL we ask or think—according to HIS power that works in us– Surrender ourselves to Him- Yield areas that can hinder us- seek to know Him, to be like Him to allow His love to flow in and through us.
