THOUGHT for the day: The anointing is actually the person of Holy Spirit upon us to equip us for super-
natural ministry…this anointing is what enabled Jesus to do only what He saw His Father do and to say only

How did Jesus go about making major decisions? What can we learn from Him?
What does it mean for us TODAY to pray YOUR KINGDOM COME?
Are you hearing God more clearly during this 50 Days to MORE journey? What is helping YOU the most?
THOUGHT FOR TODAY…
It is as Jesus taught: our eye [perception] is the lamp [it shows us] our body [earthly experience]. If we see clearly, our earthly
experience is full of light. We see beauty. But if our perception isn’t clear, the light within us is dark, and how deep is that
darkness. Our experience of life is all about the perception of WHO WE ARE! We are the light of the world, but we cover up that
truth and so cannot see it. We condemn ourselves and others, ensuring that we remain in darkness. [Ted Dekker, TFW, p 28].
Next weekend, we will look at the role of spiritual REST in making God-honoring decisions! Please keep reading Hebrews 3.7 – 4.11!

What does it mean to be RICH TOWARD GOD? How well as we trusting God with our finances?
What does it mean for US, TODAY, to SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD?
What does it mean for us to WATCH and BE READY as we look for the return of Jesus?
How are the EYES OF OUR HEART ENLIGHTENED? Can WISDOM come from WITHIN US?
How did Jesus LEARN and MAKE DECISIONS? In what ways do we need to CHANGE based on His example?
THOUGHT FOR TODAY…
ROAD MAP or TOUR GUIDE? Under grace, I don’t get a ROAD MAP. I get a TOUR GUIDE – HOLY SPIRIT! He directs,
reveals and empowers me to BE and DO what the Word says! [Bill Johnson in When Heaven Invades Earth, p. 105]. What
about for you?
Next weekend, we will look at the role of spiritual REST in making God-honoring decisions! Please keep reading Hebrews 3.7 – 4.11!

Ephesians 1.22 [zero in on 2.6 AGAIN]
BONUS: John 10.3-5, 14-15 and 27!!!
Let’s REFLECT TOGETHER…
Think about MUSTARD SEEDS and YEAST – how can SMALL things make such a BIG difference in the Kingdom?
When Jesus said He didn’t KNOW someone [Luke 13.27], He meant face-to- face PERSONAL KNOWING. Are we growing
in KNOWING Jesus this way? Do we LISTEN to His voice, follow Him fully and watch the Kingdom COME?
STOP for a moment today and PRAY FOR JERUSALEM!
How are WE the functioning BODY of Jesus [the HEAD of the Church]? BE PRACTICAL and ACTIVIST!!!
THOUGHT FOR TODAY…
Proverbs 25.2: It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter. God loves to feed those
who are truly HUNGRY! [Bill Johnson in When Heaven Invades Earth, p. 105].
REFLECTION: How does Abba hide things FOR us, not FROM us? As royalty, do we find JOY in the SEARCHING?
REFLECT: the role of spiritual REST in growing spiritually and making God-honoring decisions? [Hebrews 3.7 – 4.11]

Ephesians 2.1-5
BONUS: John 5.19-20 and then read 4.4-42!!!
Let’s REFLECT TOGETHER…
How does Luke 14.12-14 motivate our spiritual family to do ministries like PBJ this Sunday? Is Jesus calling you?
How does Luke 14.23-24 motivate us to reach out since Jesus desires for HIS HOUSE TO BE FULL?
I love Luke 14.27! It reminds me of what Nancy always says: Make sure to carry a crown before seeking to wear one! What
does this mean to you today?
How real is the biblical truth of Ephesians 2.1-5 to us experientially [especially in our baptism]: do we KNOW we have DIED with
Christ, been RAISED with Christ and now live as a NEW CREATION empowered by Holy Spirit? REALLY REALLY?

THOUGHT FOR TODAY…
Jesus learned / grew and made decisions / received guidance from a place of perfect REST in His Papa. How can we?
REFLECT: the role of spiritual REST in growing spiritually and making God-honoring decisions? [Hebrews 3.7 – 4.11]

lifestyle of KEEPING WATCH look like?
Ephesians 2.14… What does it mean to live with the DIVIDING WALL broken down by Jesus OUR PEACE?
SERMON BONUS: As we prepare for the weekend, please read John 4.34, Acts 2.42 and Acts 2.14-21…
THANK YOU for reading our daily devotion as we FOCUS TOGETHER!
REFLECTION for this week… How can we LEARN and GROW DEEP from a place of REST! How are we TRANSFORMED from
our seat of REST? Reflect on HOW Jesus LEARNED and GREW from a place of REST in Papa… What does spiritual REST
look like for you? How is this fresh teaching changing your perspective?
