A Little Help

Some things that will help me accomplish the will of God for my life in 2009
I. BEGIN WITH A CLEAN HEART
Examine your life; confess your sin. List the changes that need to be made. Ask the Lord to reveal unacknowledged problems (Ps. 66:18; I John 1:9).
II. ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILITY
Quit blaming other people, your past, or the circumstances of your life for your failure.
III. SET SOME NEW GOALS FOR THE NEW YEAR
They should be challenging but practical; higher than you know you could accomplish without the Lord's help and yet consistent with the gifts the Lord has given you.
IV. PLAN NOW HOW TO HANDLE FAILURE AND DIS­APPOINTMENT
Install spiritual "handles" now, which will be within reach when dark and difficult days come. Get special Scripture verses so rooted in your heart and mind that they will automatically come to your consciousness in a time of crisis.
V. BEGIN BUILDING SPIRITUAL HABITS
Doing what you know you ought to do-systematic schedule for reading the Word of God, organizing a prayer list, establish­ing a regular time for soul winning and church visitation, and a regular commitment of service for the Lord.
VI. DARE TO DREAM
List the things you would really like to do with your life if you just had the courage to begin. Ask God to show you what oppor­tunities would be used for His glory, and then get busy!
VII. SEEK FOR GOD'S POWER TO BE OBVIOUS IN YOUR LIFE
Come daily to that point of commitment which enables you to say: "Lord, I am Yours, and I acknowledge Your right to do with me and with all that belongs to me, whatever will bring glory and honor to Your Name." Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you and make your life and testimony effective in witnessing to others. Ask Him to teach you to pray in such a way that your life will be filled with answered prayers

Thanks for allowing me to use your material. Feel free to use anything I post also. What a great way to share ideas that the Holy Spirit lies upon our hearts. It is a great way to encourage one another of like faith also. I am glad we have run into each other because as a Army recruiter I know where to send folks that are going to be stationed at Ft. Leavenworth. We have a recruiter right now that was stationed at Leavenworth as a prison guard, he and his wife were save a little over a year ago and are members of our church. Godspeed...
