Summary: Discover How to align ourselves with our destiny, in order to collide.
COLLIDING WITH OUR DESTINY
Intro: What Should We Be Doing to align ourselves for a head on collision w/our destiny?
When Out Of Alignment - we drift/hit something on the side (of life) rather than a head on collision
Other Wrd's 4 Collide: Hit, meet head-on, plow into
Text. Ecc 10:7
This Scripture: Picture of a bad alignment
Many are not in the place they're suppose to be
A. Prince - child of the king- ought to be on the horse
B. Slave -on the horse- ought to be on foot
Why Are So Many, Not In Alignment?
I. LIMITING OURSELVES
"Not who we are that holds us back- it's who we think were not"
Lazarus> Jn 11
His Raising was in a moment
His Releasing was a -"PROCESS"
Wrapped Up?? 11:44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, "Take off the grave clothes and let him go."
Those Limitations - Is the process....
Notice: 3 specific things were covered- & Jesus said to them
a) HANDS- Not Yet put hands to the plow
Hands- on other things
b) FEET - Walk "not yet there"
PR 2:12 -13 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse, who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways,
Wisdom can save us from alot..Bible says to seek out wisdom!!
For sum it's the complete opposite
One lady steps out for her morning jog and sees a man lumped over on the sidewalk in front of her house and isn't moving. She goes back inside and calls 911 - there's man in front of my house and is hurt real bad, can you send someone right away.. Sure Mam, just need to ask a quick couple of questions. Let's start with your address: she says: I live at 5523 sycamore st. Can u spell that.. Uh C y - no no, Sik...uh; how about if i just drag him over to elm street
Stay dumb- unwise
c) FACE - Beauty "covered" A POOR SELF IMAGE
That is why people can not see themselves doing this that or the other- eyes are covered
Secondly - why many are not in alignment
II. LIMITING GOD
Wait a min, hold up - Preacher - I don't limit God
NKJV Ps 78: 40-42
How often they provoked him in the wilderness, and grieved him in the desert. Yes again and again they tempted God and Limited the Holy One of Israel. They did not remember his Power The day he redeemed them from the enemy
Listen to our conversations...... (thoughts)
Great he blessed you with that Job. BUT Can God
He healed Sister So and So -BUT Can God
Brand New Home/Car - BUT Can God
The Bible Says: Is there anything too hard for ME
All Of Us have Been There..Religious Folk / Pharisee won't fess up- But The Real People!!!
3 things we do that causes us to limit God
1. Wrong Perspective
People Look (view) life five different ways:
• Vexation - life is full of trouble & suffering
• Void- just meaningless
• Vanity- looks important but meaningless
• Vacation- always seeking pleasure though not having any lasting pleasure
• Victory - Living Victoriously for God
This perspective is one that we want
2. Wrong People
Bible says: Bad co. Corrupts good character
