MOMENTUM: Holy Swagger, How To Keep Godfidence- Part 4

You can listen to this message right now by clicking here

The story of the seed and the sower is a powerful parable that helps us understand how God's holy momentum can be sucked out of our lives. In Matthew 13, Jesus shares about the things that can take our confidence in God's Word. Without God-fidence, we'll lack faith to trust and believe God for our future. The key to keeping a holy momentum in your life is to understand and apply God's Word. His Word will produce everything that you've ever desired in your life. Take a moment and identify what momentum suckers may be affecting your life today!

Momentum Sucker #1- Lack of UNDERSTANDING (vs. 18-19) 
 18 “Now listen to the explanation of the parable about the farmer planting seeds: 19 The seed that fell on the footpath represents those who hear the message about the Kingdom and don’t understand it. Then the evil one comes and snatches away the seed that was planted in their hearts.
Momentum Sucker #2- PERSECUTION and PROBLEMS (vs. 20-21)
20 The seed on the rocky soil represents those who hear the message and immediately receive it with joy. 21 But since they don’t have deep roots, they don’t last long. They fall away as soon as they have problems or are persecuted for believing God’s word.
Momentum Sucker #3- WORRIES of life (vs. 22)
Momentum Sucker #4- Love of WEALTH/MONEY (vs. 22)
22 The seed that fell among the thorns represents those who hear God’s word, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life and the lure of wealth, so no fruit is produced.
Keep Godfidence- by understanding & obeying GOD’S WORD! (vs. 23)
23 The seed that fell on good soil represents those who truly hear and understand God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!”

Key Thought- You'll never feel good about yourself as long as you live for & depend on yourself. Die to self & live! Gal 2:20
Fill your heart and life with a complete trust in God and His Word and your life will be graced with His holy momentum!

"Genesis Week" -an excerpt from my upcoming mini-book!

Here's an excerpt from one of the "Small Book, Big Difference" mini-books that I'm currently writing. It's called, "Genesis Week- Creating A Life Worth Living One Day At A Time" and will be out this summer or eventually.  ____________________________________________________________   “... God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life...”.   Psalm 51:7-15 (MSG) On July 4, 2012, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly gathered in San Diego, California, to enjoy an 18-minute fireworks show that was advertised as one of the "biggest in the nation."   People waited for hours for what was sure to be the best ever Big Bay Boom. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours had been spent on planning and preparing for this epic event.  A few minutes before the anticipated 9 p.m. start time, the show began, unexpectedly. In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
