Double or Nothing #2
There is no SHORTAGE there is ABUNDANCE. This is the 2nd message Larry Neville is teaching on, "Double or Nothing." In this teaching he challenges us to give 100% to God and see what God will do.
John 10:10, "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
This is God's promise to you for today and everyday that you live.
2 Timothy 1:7 NLT, “God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”
Do you want to live the abundant live? Sure you do.
1. Make yourself 100% Available to God.
Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Going to read about a man in the Bible named Asaph.
Proverbs 73:1, "Truly God is good to Israel, To such as are pure in heart. 2 But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; My steps had nearly slipped. 3 For I was envious of the boastful, When I saw the prosperity of the wicked."
Proverbs 73:13, “Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain, And washed my hands in innocence.”
Proverbs 73:17-18, “Until I went into the sanctuary of God;Then I understood their end. 18 Surely You set them in slippery places; You cast them down to destruction.”
Proverbs 71:28, "But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord God, That I may declare all Your works."
2. Does it matter what you believe, think about and speak?
Another man named, Agur.
Proverbs 30:8-9, “Give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. 9 For if I grow rich, I may deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?” And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name.”
Is this correct? Well it is In the Bible. Remember that the Bible shows us the correct way and the incorrect way. This is not the way to PRAY! THINK! or to TALK!
Proverbs 30:2-3 NKJV, "Surely I am more stupid than any man, And do not have the understanding of a man. I neither learned wisdom Nor have knowledge of the Holy One."
3. God’s Purpose of your is Fruitfulness.
John 15:16, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain”
Psalm 113:9 NLT, "He gives the barren woman a home, so that she becomes a happy mother. Praise the Lord!"
Genesis 1:11 NLT, "Then God said, 'Let the land burst forth with every sort of grass and seed-bearing plant. And let there be trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. The seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.' And so it was."
Genesis 1:28 NLT, "God blessed them and told them, 'Multiply and fill the earth and subdue it. Be masters over the fish and birds and all the animals.'”
Increase and fruitfulness is God's will for you. It is sin and rebellion that results in scarcity.
Deuteronomy 28:38-39 NLT, “You will plant much but harvest little, for locusts will eat your crops. 39 You will plant vineyards and care for them, but you will not drink the wine or eat the grapes, for worms will destroy the vines.
Isaiah 54:1-3, '“Sing, O childless woman! Break forth into loud and joyful song, O Jerusalem, even though you never gave birth to a child. For the woman who could bear no children now has more than all the other women,' says the Lord. 'Enlarge your house; build an addition; spread out your home! 3 For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will take over other nations and live in their cities '"
Whether you are 16 or 116 years old, it doesn’t matter. Make yourself 100 percent available to God and he will find a way to work powerfully through you. Your age is his problem. Now is your time.
Until He returns,
