    CONNECT TO PEOPLE – SERVING OTHERS RELEASES GOD’S LOVE FOR THEM   Being passionately in love with Him will cause you to take action.   There are depths in God that will only be found in service to others. The natural mind will never be able to reason this out, but it is truly more blessed to give than to receive. He who loses his life in service to others is the one who ultimately finds life and finds fulfillment.   Service means: to benefit, to contribute to the welfare of another   In God’s Kingdom, serving is what children of God should do wholeheartedly and faithfully.   Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men Ephesians 6:7 NIV   Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10 NIV   So, we must passionately go after God with the intentions of discovering every gift He has given to us and realize they are in us to be used to connect to those who need it. Use them!  Go all out and give everything in you!  Use it all up!  Don’t hold back any

    CONNECT TO PEOPLE – HOW TO ANCHOR PEOPLE TO GOD BY STANDING IN THE GAP Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12 NIV You, God and people, by the power of prayer and friendship, become a cord of three strands. The people of the land have used oppressions, committed robbery, and mistreated the poor and needy, and they wrongfully oppress the stranger. So I sought a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land. Ezekiel 22:29-30a The best way to start connecting with others, is by prayer. When you pray for someone, you are “standing in the gap” with heart-felt repentance. You are taking their place, until they take their place with God. This principle is found throughout the Word of God. (A good example of this is Nehemiah 1:4-11) God designed prayer to work in this way because He wants to bring us into more of His love and more of His power by partnering with us in the spirit to reconcile sinners to Himself. We know that God blesses unity and the sacrificial

    CONNECT TO PEOPLE – RESTORE YOUR HOPE AS YOU LOVE PEOPLE WITH HIS HEART   Because of covenant I will set you free. Return to the stronghold of hope, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you. Zechariah 9:12 NKJV   There are many people who need hope right now. They have been disappointed by life, or by dreams and expectations that didn’t come to pass, and they are ready to give up. God has a heart full of compassion for them and wants you to be His hands and His feet and His mouthpiece to them. You can be part of His plan to turn it all around for good for them – just as He promised. God is at work right now to restore hope to them. It’s okay not to know in advance how He is going to do it. What you DO know is that your Father God is on the throne and that He is forever faithful in life’s uncertainties. You DO know that He is good and He is more powerful than everything that has come against them. You DO know that He hears your prayers – and theirs

    CONNECT TO PEOPLE – SPIRIT SENSITIVE Have you ever seen someone appear as though they are having a rough day, or maybe even a rough life?  If you have, and started to engage in conversation with them, you may have ended up with an ear full of stories and emotional baggage dumping that you were not ready for, or even imagined you would hear. Most of us are just being polite and in reality, all you wanted to do was to be nice, ask them how they were, and then quickly move on. Instead of a one-minute interaction, you found yourself in a one-sided conversation that made you late to your next whatever, which was way more important to you than listening to the situations that another person is facing. Jesus never thought people were a distraction. He was so sensitive because He first sought His Father; He did just what the Father wanted Him to do. So He went, on purpose, against what was considered acceptable or normal, to go to Samaria, just to interact with a sensitive woman. He saw her as a more than just a complaining Samaritan, but  He saw a hurt individual who was seeking

    CONNECT TO – PEOPLE – BE A FRIEND Everyone needs somebody. From the richest of the rich with their extravagant lifestyles, to the humblest of souls, trying to make it through another day of challenges and heartache. We all need a friend. Unfortunately, in a culture of people living in the fast lane, consumed with getting ahead, or working to stay afloat, many are not connecting to the people they share their lives with. In fact, a study done by the General Social Survey shows that the number of Americans that say they have no close friends has tripled in the last several years. When asked how many “confidants” they have, the most common response is “zero”. TIME MAGAZINE ONLINE – FRIENDS http://time.com/3748090/friends-social-health/ This is not a new problem. Throughout history, people have put themselves in situations of isolation, making friendship a distant need that does not get fulfilled. Jesus went out of His way to create an encounter for such a one as this. Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he

    CONNECT TO PEOPLE – HAVING GOD’S HEART OF LOVE FOR PEOPLE Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God. – Ephesians 5:2 NLT “The gospel is really easy. You just love the person in front of you.” – Heidi Baker   The Lord said to me in preparing for this fast, “JUST BE IN LOVE WITH ME. Whatever that means at that moment, you will know. Just be in love with Me.” We don’t have to DO anything except BE in love with Him every moment. Whatever action comes out of being in love will become clear in that moment for you. When you want MORE of Him, when you want ALL of Him, it will cause you to be so desperately in love, so “lovesick” in love with Him that there is no room for anything else. No fear, no doubt, no unworthiness, no confusion – all of that has been swallowed up in desire for Him. And now all you have left is to be totally, boldly, tenderly, sweetly, wholly consumed by Him. Out of that great relationship, your

    CONNECT TO GOD – RELEASE SELF-RELIANCE AND INCREASE GOD-RELIANCE In today’s society, we have such an environment of “just do it” and “make it happen”, that it has seeped into our souls to the point that, especially in the western world, we, as Christians are buying into it. We think WE can do it in our own strength. God has given people the ability to do many things if they work, they train, they study and they perform. But it still starts with His DNA. He has built determination and a desire to win in every person. Many achieve success to a certain extent, with natural discipline and building their own reality by their own strength. However, God has built His church to model something quite different. We are to rely on Him, not ourselves. 10 Who among you fears the Lord and obeys his Servant? If such men walk in darkness, without one ray of light, let them trust the Lord, let them rely upon their God. 11 But see here, you who live in your own light and warm yourselves from your own fires and not from God’s; you will live among sorrows. Isaiah 50:10-11 TLB Unfortunately, those who have

    CONNECT TO GOD – BY RELEASING THE NATURAL FOR THE SUPERNATURAL This is partially taken from the word the Lord gave me at the same time He was showing me this year was the year to release to increase. So I am going to speak it into you. You should read it and meditate on it and then you should speak it out in first person to yourself. The Church is rising up into the new awakening with a fresh breath, with fresh life, fresh revelation, and fresh ways of doing things that are being released from God to them. When they (His people) release it, and they release the insight, and they release the tools and the new weapons God has given them, it will bring the enemy, not only down to his knees, but he will also be beheaded. He will be unable to rise again in the arenas that he thought he was so strong in, and thought he would never lose. God said He is bringing us into our land. This is the season of the Church rising and taking back that which the enemy has stolen. God is making the Church an emblem over territories, raising

    CONNECT TO GOD – BY RELEASING YOUR DISTRACTIONS FOR HIS ACTIONS Let’s face it. We all have them. Probably more than we think. Distraction has a purpose. The purpose of distractions is to get you distracted from your purpose!!! Let’s name the obvious ones: TV FACEBOOK SNAPCHAT INSTAGRAM GAMES MOVIES ENTERTAINMENT THE NEWS THE BEACH OR DISNEY WORLD (if you live in Florida) FOOD (coffee, desserts included) I am not saying we should never partake. We are blessed to live in this timeframe of history with access to all these things. And we can enjoy them if we will keep our lives balanced. But the question is, what does real balance look like through Jesus’ eyes? 8 Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour. 1 Peter 5:8 AMP I looked up temperate (you knew I would). It means: marked by moderation, not extreme or excessive, moderate in indulgence of appetite or desire So we must understand that of the 24 hours we have to work with daily, we need to

    CONNECT TO GOD – RELEASE YOUR MINDSETS FOR HIS MINDSET AND INCREASE It is time we stop practicing being the Church, and actually take risks and make decisions causing us to rise into a Church that looks and acts like Jesus did while He was on the earth. That means we will have to take risks of stepping out into unknown waters. No security will be our security!!! What I mean by that is that as we let go of what we have leaned on in the past – our own strength, the way things have worked in the past, the comfort of traditional ways we conduct our lives – we will learn how to lean on Him and learn how He thinks about things. It is against our natural minds, which Paul addressed in Romans: Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. Romans 8:5 NIV                                                                                            The Church has to make decisions based on what the Spirit is saying, not on what the world is saying. We must have enough relationship with
