God wants to partner with us in our Growth & Destiny not be a dictator over us.
Our destiny is bigger than us. We need to grow!
We say, “God what do you want me to do?” – God says, “Let’s talk about it”
Lordship does not mean dictatorship.
Psa. 37.23 (NLT) The steps of the godly are directed by the LORD. He delights in every detail of their lives. (walking with Summer & Karly on streets of Chicago)
Psa. 23.1 (NKJV) The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Psa. 23.2 (NKJV) He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.
Psa. 23.3 (NKJV) He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
Psa. 23.4 (NKJV) Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Psa. 23.5 (NKJV) You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
Psa. 23.6 (NKJV) Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.
Prov. 16.9 (NKJV) A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.
As a partner, He has assigned One to graciously grow and lead us.
It’s the Holy Spirits job to grow us; Its our job to yield
John 14.16 (NKJV) And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—
John 14.17 (NKJV) the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
John 16.7 (NKJV) Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.
As He partners, Remember God does not see problems; He only sees opportunities to upgrade you!
Gen. 45.1 (NLT) Joseph could stand it no longer. “Out, all of you!” he cried out to his attendants. He wanted to be alone with his brothers when he told them who he was.
Gen. 45.2 (NLT) Then he broke down and wept aloud. His sobs could be heard throughout the palace, and the news was quickly carried to Pharaoh’s palace.
Gen. 45.3 (NLT) “I am Joseph!” he said to his brothers. “Is my father still alive?” But his brothers were speechless! They were stunned to realize that Joseph was standing there in front of them.
Gen. 45.4 (NLT) “Come over here,” he said. So they came closer. And he said again, “I am Joseph, your brother whom you sold into Egypt.
Gen. 45.5 (NLT) But don’t be angry with yourselves that you did this to me, for God did it. He sent me here ahead of you to preserve your lives.
Gen. 45.6 (NLT) These two years of famine will grow to seven, during which there will be neither plowing nor harvest.
Gen. 45.7 (NLT) God has sent me here to keep you and your families alive so that you will become a great nation.
Gen. 45.8 (NLT) Yes, it was God who sent me here, not you! And he has made me a counselor to Pharaoh—manager of his entire household and ruler over all Egypt.
