#BLESSED: How To Have An Amazing 2016
Speaker: Bro George Gabriel
Antidote To Worry
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink;
or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
2 Antidotes To Worry
-> If you do your part, you will be less worried
-> You can worship your fears or you can worship you Father in heaven

“Whatever your task, work heartily, as serving the Lord
and not men”
“Whatever your hand find to do,
do it with your might; for there is no work
or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol,
to which you are going.”
* We like things that are easy and quick
* What we need to do is:
1.ask the Lord
2.act on it
* People reject wealth because it comes in the form of work
* People reject fruit because it comes in a form of a seed
* 4 kinds of people
“On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee,
and the mother of Jesus was there; Jesus also was invited to
the marriage, with his disciples.
When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him,
“They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her,
“O woman, what have you to do with me?
My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the
servant, “Do whatever he tells you.”
Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish
rites of purification, each holding twenty or
Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.”
And they filled them up to the brim.
He said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it
to the steward of the feast.” So they took it.
When the steward of the feast tasted the water
now become wine, and did not know where it came from
(though the servants who had drawn the water knew),
the steward of the feast called the bridegroom
and said to him, “Every man serves the good wine first;
and when men have drunk freely, then the poor wine;
but you have kept the good wine until now.”
* Nothing is too big for God’s power and no problem is too small for his concern
* No matter how small your prayer is, God enters our world and he comforts us
and meets us in our needs
* 3 step pattern (water turn wine)
1. Nothing – Wine

* What’s your stick?

* Miracle needs a miracle worker
* When you work with what you have, miracles happen

“Though I have been speaking figuratively, a time is coming
when I will no longer use this kind of language
but will tell you plainly about my Father. “

* Relearn secret of happy life
* ONE BIG MESSAGE – REMAIN HUNGRY
* Philippians 4:11
“Not that I complain of want; for I have learned, in whatever state I am,
to be content.”
“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have;
for he has said, “I will never fail you nor forsake you.” “
“Better is a little that the righteou has than the abundance of many wicked.”
“And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more,
saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.’
His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been
faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of you master.’
…. so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have
what is yours.’ But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant!
You knew that I reap where I have not sowed, and gather where I have not winnowed?
Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming
I should have received what was my own with interest.”
* The secret of the great balance
“Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
“I have said this to you in figures; the hour is coming when I shall no longer
speak to you in figures but tell you plainly of the Father.”
* Why ask if the bible says be content? Dont just look at one verse to interpret the bible
* Balance of hapiness and hunger
