God Gold of the day

Just like I promised, here’s “I Declare War” part 2 from Pastor Levi Lusko!!!! I know last weeks Mid-Week Mining was awesome after hearing part 1, and if you haven’t heard part 1, I encourage you to go give it a listen! This is some powerful truths from God’s Word that has strengthened myself and many others like crazy so I really don’t want you to miss out on how God will use this in your life! I’m extremely thankful for my buddy Craig sending me this sermon last week! Man, it’s such a big blessing to have friends that reach out and encourage you like that with truth that’s moving their lives forward! I am thankful to be that friend to you today and my hope is to supply you through this message and many messages to come with as many resources as possible so that you will be prepared, battle ready warriors in whatever life throws your way! Hope this strengthens your faith today and moves you closer to the Lord than ever before! Enjoy!

If you haven’t heard of Life Church or from Pastor Craig Groeschel, I highly recommend you checking them out because you will be blessed by what God is doing through them there!

“I DECLARE WAR—2
ACT LIKE A WOLF
You’re sons of Light, daughters of Day. We live under wide open skies and
know where we stand.
6 So let’s not sleepwalk through life like those others.
Let’s keep our eyes open and be smart. 7 People sleep at night and get
drunk at night. 8 But not us! Since we’re creatures of Day, let’s act like it.
Walk out into the daylight sober, dressed up in faith, love, and the hope of
salvation. 9 God didn’t set us up for an angry rejection but for salvation by
our Master, Jesus Christ. 10 He died for us, a death that triggered life.
Whether we’re awake with the living or asleep with the dead, we’re alive
with him!
1 Thessalonians 5:5–10 MSG
– Your daily activity should come from your new identity.
 – Since we’re creatures of Day,
let’s act like it

TALK IT OVER
Wolves are both brave and nurturing. Which of those traits comes easier to
you? Which do you have a tougher time embodying?
Think about your “pack,” aka the people closest to you. What sort of
influence do you think they have on you?
What are some habits you could try to help you become who God says you
are?

Mid-Week Mining

God Gold of the day

I don’t usually post whole sermons for God Gold messages because I like to keep things short for you, but today and next Wednesday on the next edition of “Mid-Week Mining,” I’m excited to share with you these messages from Pastor Levi Lusko called “Winning the War Within.”

I like to mix up my preaching styles to get different perspectives from teachers of God’s Word from different ages, like some of the older guys and then some of the new. I just so happened to stumble across this sermon while searching for something newer to listen to and MAN!!! I was hit right where it matters most! God really shook my heart with this message and thankfully my close friend Craig shared the second message with me that I’ll be sharing with you next week! I pray God will move through these messages in a major way in your life and move you closer alongside Him as He begins showing you how to win the war within!!!

Also, below the video I want to share with you the bulletin outline that was shared with this sermon so you can have notes to hold onto and work through! I found them through the Life Church’s website at https://www.life.church

I’m excited to share with you this resource and moving forward trying my best to give you every possible resource I can to strengthen your faith, encourage you, and move you forward closer in relationship to Christ!

“I DECLARE WAR—1
WINNING THE WAR WITHIN
I’m a mystery to myself, for I want to do what is right, but end up doing
what my moral instincts condemn.
Romans 7:15 TPT
I do live in the world. But I don’t fight my battles the way the people of the
world do.
The weapons I fight with are not the weapons the world uses. In
fact, it is just the opposite. My weapons have the power of God to destroy
the camps of the enemy. 
I destroy every claim and every reason that keeps
people from knowing God. I keep every thought under control in order to
make it obey Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:3–5 NIRV
MIND YOUR HEAD
For as he thinks in his
heart, so is he. …
Proverbs 23:7 NKJV
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
Colossians 3:2 NKJV
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the
renewing of your
mind, that you may prove what is that good and
acceptable and perfect will of God.
Romans 12:2 NKJV
… “‘You shall love the Lᴏʀᴅ
your God with all your heart, with all your
soul, and with all your
mind.’”
Matthew 22:37 NKJV
USE YOUR WORDS
Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.
Proverbs 18:21 MSG
KEEP SHOWING UP
TALK IT OVER
What do you think about yourself? Is there any version of you that you
don’t want to see?
How would you describe how you talk to yourself and others? Are you
more of a coach or more of a critic?
What are some ways you could coach yourself and others toward
Christlikeness? What changes would you need to make to the words you
use?
