Key to Success in life…
Sometimes life is hard to figure out… wouldn’t it have been nice to have a key that would unlock every door and make every decision to unlock. I am going to give you the master key to unlocking God’s best for your life, to make every decisions easy, to tear down every distraction, and to elevate you to a position that people look up to you and you have influence in your life…. Ready to hear it?!?! Story of when I was a kid…wanted to be a police officer, pro skater, pro paintballer, non of those thing happened and I was faced with going from place to place devoid of understanding about what God’ best is for my life Neh 1:3 3 And they said to me, “The survivors who are left from the captivity in the province are there in great distress and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem is also broken down, and its gates are burned with fire.” 4 So it was, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned for many days; I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven Nehemiah Vision
In our lives we can look at our situation and loose hope, Vision cannot be birthed in a situation where all hope is lost…It must be birthed on our knees… Neh 1:4 Prayer is our only Starting Point to gaining Vision and Purpose in our life We must start success in a place of unsuccessfulness… When we look at our life sometimes we can get discouraged. His prayer was that of humility, and brokenness, and desperation…We need to get desperate for the rebuilding of our greatest defense… because over the years our society has torn down the walls and burned the doors of our soul (our eyes and our standards) We need to wake up and realize that although people live in great houses and go to cushy jobs and go out on the weekend. That the biblical standards have been torn to pieces. People’s lives are being ruled by a sin and corruption and SELF. The Verse that I lean on when I see the dilapidation of our society 2 Chronicles 7:14
if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land In our distress and supplication God will give us the vision! God started giving Nehemiah a Burden!
When the burden of God is upon our heart, He will cause our burden to be contagious… 2 And it came to pass in the month of Nisan, in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, when wine was before him, that I took the wine and gave it to the king. Now I had never been sad in his presence before. 2 Therefore the king said to me, “Why is your face sad, since you are not sick? This is nothing but sorrow of heart.” So I became dreadfully afraid, 3 and said to the king, “May the king live forever! Why should my face not be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers’ tombs, lies waste, and its gates are burned with fire?” 4 Then the king said to me, “What do you request?”
So I prayed to the God of heaven. (Saying a quick Prayer) 5 And I said to the king, “If it pleases the king, and if your servant has found favor in your sight, I ask that you send me to Judah, to the city of my fathers’ tombs, that I may rebuild it.” 6 Then the king said to me (the queen also sitting beside him), “How long will your journey be? And when will you return?” So it pleased the king to send me; and I set him a time. We need to Share the Burden/Vision of our life with others.
Proverbs 29:18 - Where there is no vision, the people perish: but the one who keeps the law will be happy.
• In this verse, the word “vision” is the Hebrew word “hazon.” • Hazon literally means a “revelation from God.”
• A “hazon” vision is one that God Himself puts in our hearts. • This kind of vision is a command from God that must be...
