I Promise

For all of God's promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding "Yes!" And through Christ, our "Amen" (which means "Yes") ascends to God for his glory. 2 Cor 1:20

God desires for us to live in His promises
Some thoughts about how/what living in a Land of Promise looks like 
Grow our mindsets (how)
  • • Grow past thinking we are defeated
  • • Grow past the past
  • • Grow to a place of knowing you have victory in Christ
Gain New strength (how)
  • • Stop relaying on our own strength
  • • Relay on the Spirit of God that is the strength that works in you
  • • Burn out comes from a power source that is tapped out
  • • God gives us NEW strength. This is strength you didn’t even see coming.
Step Up (how)
  • • We need to be addicted to answering the call
  • • The call is to step up from where we are to a higher place
  • • To use the gifts God has given
  • • To love, connect and serve with a new strength
Gain new territory (what)
  • • God doesn’t desire His people to live an average life.  Or in a land of just enough.
  • •  Average relationship, average resources, and average lives. Just getting by. 
  • • The land of promise brings much fruit into our lives
  • • Fruitful relationships, fruitful resources, and fruitful lives
Possess the Land of Promise
