Summary: In order to succeed in Life you got to lose sometimes
Lose and be blessed
Into: Losing is good
We live in a world where every one wants to win.
We can't stand to lose. Gain, gain gain.win, win, it is unacceptable to
lose. I can't lose my stuff, I can't Lose my job, I can't lose my
woman, I can't lose my man. Realize the only way god can bless you in a
new way is for you to lose someone or something. The reason a lot of
people that desire to be married will never make it down the aisle; is
because they refuse to lose. Let go so god can bless you, lose so you
can win. Many people talk about hating there job, but are horrified to
lose their job or try something new. They fear failing, the possibility
of losing. Have faith, you can't get a better job or start a business
if you are not willing to lose the one you got. Don't quit your current
job, but be willing, optomistic about losins so you can win. The
isrealites were slaves, but they refused to leave Egypt afraid to lose
their miserable status. Even in the process of reaching the promised
land they wanted to turn back to being slaves. Being slaves was their
idea of winning. Being free was losing. We may mock them, laugh and
say they were foolish, however we are no different. It took te
Isrealites 400 years to reach the promised land because of their
winning attitude. I encourage you to be a loser. Don't let a winning
attitude keep you from what god has for you. What we call winning is losing to
god. His ways, aren't our ways. His thoughts aren't our thoughts.
Become familiar with (Isaiah 55:8).
I. Start losing
Once you start losing , do not be afraid to keep losing. God is not
done with you, until your done living. If your heart is still ticking
he still has more for you to lose. Keep in mind god always blesses
those who lose. In Genesis Jacob lost his son Joseph for time, and God
returned Joseph to Jacob as a king and provider in time of famine. He was lost to
fulfill a purpose. Even Jesus loss. He gave his life loss for the
purpose of winning, so that our sins could be forgiven and our lives
could be saved.
II. Lose and keep losing to be blessed
Therefore if you want the best for your life, loose it.
Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; And whoever loses
his life will preserve it. In other words your best life is attached to
moving forward and leaving the past. So if you want a husband you gotta
let go the past relationship that hurt you. If you want a better job
lose the one you have, and get a better one. If you want to keep moving
closer to heaven, lose stuff, you can't climb the mountain looking back
or holding on to stuff. (Matthew 16:19 paraphrased) Loosed on earth
loosed in heaven. In closing, lose in life so you can win.
