How many times do we live our lives in position to receive what God has for us? We say that we are waiting on Heaven to move for us, but God is waiting on us to place ourselves into position. We position ourselves through obedience in little things.

Matt 18:19- if two of you agree about anything on earth, it will be done by my Father in heaven.

2 chron 7:14- if my people who are called by my name would humble themselves……then I will heal their land.

Mark 2:22- no one pours new wine into an old wineskins….No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.

You can’t take a new experience with God and place it in your old routine. If we do the same thing everyday, we will have the same result. We must make changes. You can’t put a new sound in a new attitude. A new season can’t come without some new changes accompanying it. Newness requires newness.

Something has to change if you want something to change.

1 Cor. 1:27- but God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; the weak things of the world to shame the strong;the lowly things of the world and the despised things – and the lowly things that are…..

People should look at your life and the way you have changed and say, ” that HAS to be God.”

The problem with the American church is we have built the church to look good to people, but not to God.

Psalm 114:1-2 – when Israel went out of Egypt. The house of Jacob from a people of strange language, Judah became His sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.

This means that God’s spirit and presence is found where the praises are! All Christians are His dominion, but praise is where God chooses to dwell!

Psalms 22:3- but thou art holy, O Lord, that inhabit the praises of Israel.

This means that when we praise Him, we build Him a throne. Bigger praise= bigger throne!
