Cleaning up my data on my phone recently when I discovered these notes. I’m passing them on to my readers. Remember the word content is not mine. Priscilla Shirer (daughter of pastor Tony Evans) was in person a few years ago at FBC Jackson and this is notes from that message. Take what’s useful.
Prayer doesn’t manipulate God, it gives you access to what He already has planned for you.
The enemy wants to devalue.
Psalm 133- God commands a blessing.
Unity- He commands that there be a blessing.
We sit on our feelings like they are fact
You don’t execute- you just hold on to your knowledge.
We never need to pray about a command.
Only the Creator can define you and call you by your name.
You are not defined by anything other than who God says you are.
The applause of those around or lack of applause doesn’t define you.
Even your weaknesses can become a platform.
When I surrender all I am to God then I become a temple for the Holy Spirit.
When God encountered people He changed their name.
Align everything with your identity.
Over 8000 promises. To grab hold of them you gotta know who you are.
When you don’t know who you are you get attacked by the enemy.
And everyone was doing what they thought was right in their own eyes.
The Middianites had conquered them.
Vs 11&12- Gideon was met by the angel and the angel called him a valiant warrior.
The angel of the Lord came to meet with mere people. It is God. Gideon is threshing wheat in a wine press. He is hiding. The angel of the Lord went to him. vs 11- He was there but in vs 12 he became aware he was near.
Open our eyes to see Him.
We want the manifest presence of God. We see Him. We see His tracks.
He hilights the word!
Spiritual senses so that our spiritual radar is up.
If you’ve not been able to detect God, and you can’t trust His hand then trust his heart.
You know you are hearing from God, when you hear truth. He will not conform to us. We must turn into His likeness.
Truth doesn’t change just cause we don’t like it.
You’re entire family is waiting for you to figure out who you are.
The whole nation was waiting on one person.
Daniel- God didn’t take them out of the fire, He joined them in the fire.
Isaiah 65- I allowed myself to be found by people who didn’t want to be found.
