December 24, 2020 - LMA Seven Principles: Principle #7
LMA Principle #7 - Violently Break the Pattern.
Sometimes replacement activities, sponsorship, mentoring, or counseling don't seem to work. That's when we have to take radical action. We have to be willing to pay the price- to crucify the self and put on the new man/woman.
Matthew 11:12: "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force."
Philippians 2:13: "For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."
Philippians 2:13: Discover God himself as your inexhaustible inner source; he ignites you with both the desire and energy that matches his own delight!
1 Timothy 6:12 "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life."
Principle 7 points out that we sometimes have to crucify self (putting down our selfish wants and attitudes) to take our lives back. To BE restored and renewed. Reflect on the is today.
Proverbs 1:23 (TPT): Come back to your senses and be restored to reality. Don't even think about refusing my rebuke! Don't you know that I'm ready to pour out my spirit of wisdom upon you and bring to you the revelation of my words that will make your heart wise?
Come to your senses. BE restored to reality. Seek God's Spirit of Wisdom.
Enjoy this skit done by some guys from the Rapha Treatment Center (a few years ago). They gave me permission to post, and we have no rights to the music.
