Forward Thinkers today is dedicated to the generation that grew up in homes that didn’t make church a priority or in a church that didn’t make them growing and winning in real life a priority and they now consider the church as just another option to choose from.
The bible is my final authority and my faith is totally based off the word of God and the first thing I want to share is:
Matthew 16:18 New Living Translation (NLT)
18 Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’),[a] and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell[b] will not conquer it.
Forward Thinkers the real church that Jesus gave us should equip, empower, and encourage us to win and defeat the devil. That’s why we can pursue it (whatever the IT God put inside of us) with total confidence.
In 2020 To Pursue It We Must Live In The Now
“There’s a God force inside of you that gives you a will to live.” Dick Gregory.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Forward Thinkers faith is needed for the now—We must have now faith to silence the doubt and fear.
We don’t need faith to deal with the setbacks of yesterday that’s over and we don’t need to borrow the faith of tomorrow because tomorrow will handle itself.
We need now faith to conquer, defeat, and dominate what’s in front of us right now knowing God has given us the ability to do so.
To Pursue It There Must Be Something Inside Of You Strong Enough To Push You
Ephesians 3:20 Amplified Bible (AMP)
20 Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us,
– Forward Thinkers you must have something inside of you strong enough to handle being hated.
– Forward Thinkers you must have something inside of you strong enough for you to handle being different.
– Forward Thinkers you must have something inside of you strong enough for you to ignore the facts staring down against you.
– Forward Thinkers you must have something inside of you strong enough for you to be a pioneer and bust out the box of complacency.
To Pursue It You Must Be Able To Rebound
Romans 8:37 Amplified Bible (AMP)
37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us
[so much that He died for us]
Forward Thinkers remember failure is not final—God can now get all the glory out of your story.
Forward Thinkers even if everybody says it’s impossible, with determination, there is always something you can do. The worst thing is to give up without trying.
Keep running, keep dreaming, keep alive the flame of hope, defeat and despair will not catch up with you.
Procrastination to an Entrepreneur is what kryptonite is to Superman.
Procrastination stops a supernatural move of God from taking place in your life.
Procrastination stops you from being great.
The difference between a win and a loss is your ATTITUDE!
Forward Thinkers you must expect to win no matter what the predictors of the past may say.
Past Failure Does Not Guarantee New Failures
To Pursue It you must have the right attitude. History is full of people who failed got up and changed history.
Even after all you’ve been through you must still believe you can win?
2 Corinthians 6:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
6 As God’s co-workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain.2 For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.”[a] I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.
1- God’s co-workers
Forward Thinkers we are not in this along with God nothing is impossible, we can do all things through Him.
2- God’s grace
Forward Thinkers we can’t earn it we have to receive it and when we receive it nothing can defeat it.
3- God’s favor
Forward Thinkers favor makes everything possible and we can’t lose operating in God’s favor.
