17 December 2017 - Live at Lakewood Church: The Secret to a Quality Life - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes Online - New Creation Church
Jesus is not here just to be a Spectator in your life. He is here to meet your needs.
We serve God because we have been served by Him.
When someone allows Jesus to serve him, Jesus pours forth His goodness.
If we don’t allow Jesus to serve us, we cannot flow with Him.
It is not wrong to serve God, but if the heart is full of troubles and worries while serving, then it’s because that person has not been served by God.
Martha was full of complaints whereas Mary allowed Jesus to serve her.
How glad Jesus was to find someone that was willing to be served!
The Christian life begins with you sitting down, resting in what has been done.
We are rich because of the cross. Now that you are rich, act like it.
Sow bountifully. Tithe to show that God is the source of your finances.
You don’t have to tithe - you get to tithe.
God never plays catch-up. What God does is in the invisible realm and it will manifest physically.
What is of the flesh manifests quickly but is not comparable to what God does.
Ishmael is of the flesh and he arrived first, but Isaac who is born of grace is better even though he took longer to be conceived.
The devil always plays catch-up to what God is doing.
If you can’t tell what God is doing, see what the devil is doing in your life, reverse it, and you’ll know what God is doing.
Example: If the devil has placed sickness in your body, it’s because God has released health in your life.
The people of the world only see what the devil is doing, but we need to see what God is doing behind the scenes.
Don’t pray for God to move against what the devil is doing.
We need to pray to see what God has done and declare it!
Matthew 6:25 - The secret to a quality life and a healthy body is letting go of our worries.
““Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?” (Matthew 6:25 NKJV)
