Pastor Kenneth and Lynette Hagin are in for a Living Faith Crusade this week. If you are anywhere near New Life Church, you need to get here. He spoke tonight and shared some things that made a HUGE impact on my life. I thought it would be cool to share some of the bullet point notes I took. His message was on Obstacles and Opportunities.
Don’t focus only on the spectacular or you’ll miss the supernatural.
All obstacles aren’t necessarily from God.
Obstacles are temporary.
God is able to restore joy, passion, direction & overcome your fear of being left behind.
All opportunities are not from God.
Knowing/discerning the difference between a God given opportunity & the appearance of one determines whether you stay in Gods full blessing/will or permissive blessing/will.
God is bigger than missed opportunities.
Before you step into a new opportunity, it requires prayer AND fasting to clearly hear from God.
Gods primary way to guide isn’t by how great the opportunity appears, but through Gods Word and through your spirit. (Proverbs 11:12, John 16:13, Romans 8:16).
Trouble is more of an indicator that it is God than it isn’t.
The reason God can’t speak to you is because you’ve already made up your mind.
He doesn’t force, He leads.
Stop and listen, He wants you to get it right.
Sometimes He leads you through obstacles to prepare you for your next opportunity.
