Taking AIM for a Better Life Part 2

1 Corinthians chapter 9 .......

We’re talking about "Taking AIM for a Better Life"......

We began a few weeks ago Talking about this being the Year of New Beginnings.....

and I believe it is....

In 2007....we passed through some Open Doors.....

.....and So It Is TIME FOR SOME NEW THINGS to Begin IN OUR LIVES.......

You may have known some pretty Good Things in your past....

....You may have known a degree of Victory in your life....

....You may have experienced some Peace, and Joy....and Power......

But I believe that NOTHING in your past can hold a candle to WHAT GOD WANTS to do in your life THIS YEAR......

I’m Looking, in 2008 for the full manifestation of Eph 3:20 .......

......in my life.......and in your life.....and in this church......

,....When El Shaddai God OPENS FULL for us the Windows of Heaven.....

and the EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY ABOVE All we’ve ask.......

..... and What we’ve been Dreaming of concerning His Power and Glory Displayed IN THIS EARTH....takes place......

And the Abundance of the Anointing Destroys EVERY Yoke.....

....and Removes Every Burden......

And the WHOLE EARTH is Filled with the GLORY of GOD......

I Believe We’re ON OUR WAY.....don’t you?.....

....Turn and say that to your neighbor "I’m On MY way Into the GLORY"

In 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 .....the Apostle Paul writes.....

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Now, before I get done with this Passage of Scripture....I plan to use all of it.....

.....But we’re using verse 26 as our springboard......

....so let’s Look again to verse 26 Paul said.....I therefore so run, not as uncertainly.....

......or ....as the Amplified Translation says.....WITHOUT DEFINATE AIM....

Definate Aim means a DEFINED DESIRE....or an IDENTIFIABLE Goal or Target......

We talked about that Last Week......how that.......

You can’t run effectively toward a Finish Line IF you do not know where and what it is.

and.....Neither can you Believe God for something that is UNDEFINED

I personally believe that this relates to WHY the Words of our mouth are so effective for or against us....

because when we talk,....we try to be more CLEAR and DEFINATE for understandings sake......

So.....One thing we said is that the First Step to a Better Life is to Define your Desire......

.....or Identify your Goal or Target or Destination that you want to Reach.....

You need to know WHERE you want to go....before you can ever get there.....

You have to know WHAT you want ......before you can work toward having it......

HOWEVER....Just knowing WHAT you want IS NOT ENOUGH......

.....you can’t stop there.....
