13 Mar 2016 - Have a Good Eye At All Times - Pastor Lawrence Lim Sermon Notes Online - New Creation Church Sermon Notes Online
Just one word from Jesus and your life will never be the same again!
In Christ Jesus, all of God's promises to us are "Yes" and "Amen".
Proverbs 18:16 - The gifting of God in Pastor Joseph Prince's life is clearly visible.
“A man’s gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men.” Proverbs 18:16 NKJV
The smallest thing in your life should be your ego.
If your dreams are more than your achievements, you are young. Never stop dreaming. Attempt great things for God. Our God is a great God!
Matthew 6:22-23 - To have a good eye means to be an optimist, to see good even when things seem bad. To have a bad eye means to be a pessimist.
How do you look at things? Are you someone that tends towards the negative? God wants you to expect good things to come. That's having the Bible-definition of hope!
““The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matthew 6:22-23 NKJV)
God is not an angry God. We are no longer under the Old Covenant of the Law, but we are under the New Covenant of Grace.
What we see in the Old Testament of the Bible is just a glimpse of what God is like. It's not the full picture of what God is like.
If you want to know what God is like, look at Jesus. Jesus is the exact representation and exact expression of God. Jesus is the image of the invisible God.
Jesus raised the lepers, calmed the storm, fed the five thousand men, and forgave the woman caught in adultery.
He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil.
Our God is good. That is why we can have a confident expectation of good. God's heart is to bless us.
Psalms 118:1 - Even if you feel that there is nothing good to focus on in your life, there is one Person who is good in your life, and that Person is the Lord.
Because He is good, He will turn the circumstances in your life around for your good!
“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.” (Psalms 118:1 NKJV)
Because all our sins are forgiven, we can have a positive expectation of good. No matter what happens in this life, we still win.
When we work hard at our jobs and work, we are working hard for the Lord. Whatever you do, do it as worship unto the Lord.
The pleasures of the world alone cannot satisfy the void in our hearts.
As Christians, we don't have to come for church, we GET to come for church.
I Thessalonians 5:18 - Have an attitude of gratitude. God's will is for us to give thanks in everything.
Give thanks in all things, not FOR all things. Change the perspective in which we see things - Have a good eye.
The greatest positive in our lives is the cross. Jesus gave His life for us willingly at the cross.
Any time is a good time to pray and to give thanks to God.
“in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (I Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV)
God's word is the will of God. If something is not in line with God's word, don't believe it. Don't be hoodwinked by the devil.
You take God's breath away. God is madly in love with you. The price that someone is willing to pay for something determines the value of that thing.
God decided to save you and chose to give up Jesus for you. You are worth the Son of God.
Acts 16:19-31 - Paul and Silas were going about doing God's work and doing God's will, and yet this happened to them.
Instead of moaning and complaining, Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns. They were still praising God!
The earthquake of God does not take away lives and cause destruction. It opens doors and looses chains in the midnight of your captivity!
“But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities. And they brought them to the magistrates, and said, “These men, being Jews, exceedingly trouble our city; and they teach customs which are not lawful for us, being Romans, to receive or observe.” Then the multitude rose up together against them; and the magistrates tore off their clothes and commanded them to be beaten with rods. And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed. And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself. But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.” Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”” (Acts 16:19-31 NKJV)
Matthew 21:16 - Jesus said this to the scribes and Pharisees as the people were worshiping Him.
“and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise’?”” (Matthew 21:16 NKJV)
Psalms 8:2 - What Jesus said in Matthew 21:16 was quoted from this verse. Jesus said the word "praise" instead of "strength". Therefore praise equals strength. When you praise God, you will be strengthened.
“Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.” (Psalms 8:2 NKJV)
