Notes From March Power Source Study

Here are the notes from the March Power Source study. We thought it would be good to post them on the blog so that we all can have a place to find more truths from the word when we need some of Him! Blessings...

Watch Out Big Mac, I’m Hungry For Something More!
Power Source March 1st, 2010

Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are those who hunger & thirst for righteousness for they will be filled.”

Psalm 107: 1-9 “For He satisfies the thirsty & fills the hungry with good things.” (verse 9)

Story of the Samaritan Woman at the Well John 4:1-26 “Jesus answered, Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (verses 13-14)

Revelation 22:17 “The Spirit & the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.”

Isaiah 55:1 “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters....”

How do we satisfy that part in us? LIVING IN FREEDOM WITH HIM!!!

*Beth Moore says in her book, Living Free, that whether we seek to be filled through approval, affirmation, control, success, or immediate gratification, we’re miserable until we fill ourselves with Him. When we draw daily from His well of unfailing love we will be filled.

*Don’t listen to false strongholds. God is our ultimate stronghold (fortress, rock, refuge, blanket of protection) but it is very easy for us to make other things our strongholds that steal our focus & cause us to feel feel overpowered, controlled, or mastered. These are lies & deception from Satan. When satan wages war against us, the primary battlefield is the mind.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 “For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds....We take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

But, great news! Satan lost all rights to have authority over a believer’s life at the cross (Colossians 2:13-15). The VICTORY is WON! Christ disarmed the forces of evil. Satan makes us believe that he has power but NOTHING is bigger or more powerful than God!

Going to Battle Example - Be Prepared! Claim Him everyday and the Power He has, not only on the day He calls us to heaven, but the Power He has today to live in freedom with Him & not in fear. Choose Truth through the Word of God and Spirit-empowered prayer. He wants to be our Heavenly Daddy in a relationship not some far away thing!

Our Power Source: “Proclaim the power of God, whose power is in the skies. You are awesome, O God. The God of Israel gives power & strength to His people. Praise be to God!” Psalm 68:34-35
