  • I am here because of God’s greatness
  • I am here by God’s grace
  • I am here to be God’s glory

  • It’s important that I get a revelation about God’s greatness
  • God is great no matter what my condition is. God’s greatness doesn’t change depending on where I am
  • God’s greatness IS!
  • God is still God! God is still great on the mountain top or in the valley
  • I can’t skip the valley! In the valley, God does His best work & gets His most glory!
  • In the valley, I have a tendency to look weak. God’s people are not weaklings! I am tougher than you think! I am tougher than the enemy thinks! I get my toughness from trusting God
  • God’s greatness is about the whole story
  • But I trust God & hear a word from God. When I listen to God, God delivers me!
  • God’s greatest glory comes from when His people (ME) are the most weak, inadequate, but they (ME) manage to get the courage to be tough enough to show up for the fight!
  • No matter how bad somebody has been to me, treats me, I am STILL nice to them & treat them good
  • I need to be clear: were it not for the grace of God, where would I be?
  • God’s grace is awesome! God’s grace finds me at my lowest point. God’s grace is a God given thing! I don’t deserve it, I haven’t earned it
  • Only God can handle grace!
  • God’s grace is always hard when I have to be the one to extend it to someone else
  • I’m glad about God’s grace! God’s grace makes the difference!

Sermon In Action - Suggested Activities:

  • DAILY AFFIRMATIONS:Say at least 10x per day, throughout the day as passionately as possible and as early as possible in the day… (Add your favorites)
  • GOD’S GRACE IS AWESOME!
  • I AM HERE BECAUSE OF GOD’S GREATNESS!
  • I AM HERE BY GOD’S GRACE!
  • I AM HERE TO BE GOD’S GLORY!
  • I AM GLAD ABOUT GOD’S GRACE!

 

Write the affirmation(s) that resonate(s) the most ( or, print on computer – large font) and place it in several prominent places: your living space, your work space (if you are able), your car, bathroom mirror, near your bed… wherever it will be visible and can serve as a constant reminder of how you should be thinking, feeling, being and, of what you should be doing.

  • Read and apply scripture: Review the scriptures for this sermon lesson (above) and this week make a conscious effort to rely on one of them in a moment of doubt or need and/or use as a basis for your daily meditation time. Getting to know and use scripture before moments of need  can actually reduce those ‘moments of need.’
  • Reflect & Write: Have I received a revelation about God’s greatness? Was there one specific situation or time in my life that caused me to know for sure that God is great?
  • Testify: God’s grace makes the difference! What are some of the ways that God’s grace has made a difference in your life?
  • Creative Application: During your Wednesday fast period, extend the grace of God to yourself. Extend the grace of God as a first response whenever someone offends, hurts, or treats you poorly. Extend the grace of God when you meet someone new. Extend the grace of God to someone you’ve had difficulty forgiving.  

May God bless you
