PASTOR RICH//NO VACANCY

Luke 2:1-5
Imagine all of the doubts that Mary & Joseph felt in this time
– what the enemy meant for evil in your life, God is using for the good
    – your pain can be your platform

Micah 5:2
– written hundreds of years before the trip happened

Luke 2:7
– the inn keeper could have been famous, but he missed the opportunity because there was no vacancy for them
– we want to be welcomed but the doors are closed. Why are they closed?
    – we’re busy, this can make you miss out on who’s knocking on the door
    – our house is full of junk. We don’t want anyone to see our junk
    – we have locked the door and put up barriers. (fear, pride, bitterness, anger, etc.)
    – disobedience. we have room for Jesus when it’s convenient for us, when it fits our schedule, etc. Sometimes we just don’t want to do what God asks us to do.
You make space for what’s important to you.
We need to inventory our inn. Why does Jesus not have any room in your life? What are you will to move and remove so He can enter in? HE IS THE SPACE. God wants all of your heart.

Luke 2:12
– Jesus was born in bad conditions

You may find yourself in a low place today, but you don’t have to stay there.
– Jesus didn’t let his environment define Him
Jesus doesn’t enter your life looking for the pretty places, easy places, comfortable places, etc. He wants us to make room for Him just the way we are because He will change them and make something brand new in us

God wants to change so much in you that you won’t look the way you used to

Maybe you feel like you don’t have much to give, but give what you got

thanksgiving is a very distinctive holiday — but our culture has changed
– rise in ME centered world
– because culture of honor is not taught
– need to teach kids to thank their parents for all that they do for them

Romans 1:21
Philippians 2:14
– we cannot allow a spirit of ingratitude to harden our hearts
– when we become less thankful we become colder & colder toward God
– 1.85 billion people live in EXTREME poverty
– 61% of the world live in poverty
– 2% of the worlds poor live in America

Don’t have a “never enough” mentality
– these people are preoccupied with what they do not have
– when money consumes your life, that’s a problem. thanksgiving has lost its value

Philippians 4:12
– we have to learn to thank God for whatever we have!
– God want to use material and monetary blessings for us to be a blessing to others
– give, and it will be given to you
– Bible says that you will reap 10-fold

Life is short
– let people that you love know how much you love them and are grateful for them
– friends and mentors need to know how much they’ve impacted you

Philippians 4:6-7
– tell God that even if you don’t get what you want you will thank Him anyways

John 3:16

How Do You Live the Blessed Life?
1. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord & Savior
2. Generosity
3. Obedience
4. Thanksgiving

Obedience: compliance with an order, submission to someone else’s authority
– we don’t want anyone telling us what to do
– we live in a culture that promotes that WE are our own God

Proverbs 14:12

God provided everything man needed in the Garden
– there was one tree they couldn’t eat from
– God gave them a choice, he wanted us to have free will. We worship Him because we GET to
– He wanted our hearts
– the enemy is always trying to disrespect what God has created. He’s trying to disappoint us
– Why is obedience so hard?
– because our sinful nature came from the choice to eat the fruit from the forbidden tree

The Cause of Obedience in Our Lives
– Deuteronomy 28:1-2
– God wants to put you together with no missing ingredients. EVERY PART MATTERS.
– He’s giving us the instructions or ingredients to live a whole life.
– When we obey Him, He makes us the best version of who we can be
– GODS LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL BUT HIS BLESSINGS ARE OPTIONAL
– we can’t expect God to bless our mess. He created us to be less messy.
– consistency is the key to breakthrough
– you have to be consistent in your giving
– obedience has to be consistent
– Obedience to God when we don’t want to, when it hurts, and when it’s not convenient

1. Obedience produces popularity
– Deuteronomy 28:3-4
– obedience opens opportunities for us to have influence in this world
– if you want doors to open in your life, be obedient to God
2. Obedience produces protection
– Deuteronomy 28:7
– God does not promise us a life without enemies, but he promises victory over our enemies if we are obedient
– God promises that when we walk in obedience — enemies will be defeated before our eyes (visible victory) & the enemies plans will be scattered all over the place
– Proverbs 16:7
3. Obedience produces provision and prosperity
– Deuteronomy 28:8
– provision is supply us with what we need
– obedience can help you prosper
– investments, a paycheck, etc. are not your source. God is your provider & source.
– God wants to give us the desires of our heart
– if it’s in His will He wants to give it to you
4. Obedience produces promise
– Deuteronomy 28:9
– God is looking to establish you — to make firm and to make stable.
– Deuteronomy 28:13
– we need to pay attention to God’s IFs
– IFs is a conjunction. it’s a connection with God, not a condition
– if you listen to God’s IFs, you will live a blessed life

Acts 20:35
– Because of one little boys generosity it changed the course of 10,000+ people’s lives

John 6:1-3
Mark 6:34-37
John 6:8-9
Matthew 14:19-21

3 Things to Do to Live a Blessed Life:
1. Surrender
Surrender your life to God so He can bless it.
2. Be broken
We’ve gotta be broken like Jesus broke the bread
– brokenness brings humbleness in the Lord’s presence, we get very close to the Lord
– smart people learn from their mistakes but wise people learn from others mistakes
3. Give
Jesus gabe the bread and fish to the disciples to (1) increase their faith and (2) to teach them generosity
– (1) He takes what we give and he multiplies it
– (2) We learn by action
You become blessed by giving. You become confident by doing the very thing you’re afraid to do. You become disciplined by doing what you don’t always want to do.
– the little boy could have eaten his bread and been full, but because he gave it to Jesus it was multiplied and fed thousands of people, that’s what makes us have true fullness.

Some people have a bad attitude when churches talk about giving:
– every time you gone you are giving to God
– it is the stewardship of the Church that God looks at
– He wants you to give your money, but also give your time, talents, and energy
– He doesn’t want your money, he wants your heart!!!
– where your treasure is your heart is also
– “When you seek first the kingdom of God and all of His righteousness, all things else will be added to you”

Malachi 3:8-11
– we don’t give to get but when we give God will put His blessing on
– anything you want to be blessed, has to be in covenant
– Put the pressure on God

If you want to live a blessed life, you want to be a tither
– the enemy will do anything to keep you from God’s principals because once you learn it, it will transform your life & bring impact into the Kingdom of God and bring revival to the world

Test God and see what happens when you tithe. Try it this month and see what happens

The Israelites possessed the blessings in the promised land but they forgot who the real
blesser was.

Ezekiel 37:1
– The Israelites found themselves in a valley of hopelessness
– there are going to be valleys in your life. the enemy is going to want to use the valley to hurt you

What do you do in the valley?
– You don’t listen to the valley
– it’s going to tell you there’s no hope
– isolation is one of the biggest tools of the enemy
– when he isolated he dominates
– You gotta step into your valley
– you don’t achieve great faith until you give God your small faith
– you don’t have awesome faith until you have broken faith
– give God your “not enough”
– He wants you to come the way you are so He can make you whole
– God allows valleys so you can get closer to Him
– fruit grows in the valley, not in the mountain
– God grows us in the valleys
– Don’t talk about the valleys talk TO the valleys
– say it until you see it
– Keep walkin
– you walk through the valleys you don’t camp out in them
– Psalms 23:4
– Even if it’s slow progress, MOVE FORWARD.
– Where you’re at today doesn’t determine where you’re going
Ezekiel 37:2-14
– wherever we go there are people who need hope and expectation breathed into them
– You get what you expect
– God is looking for available people
– We get dry over a period of time
– we let the exposure to things we shouldn’t be exposed to dry us up
– How to put meat on your bones:
– PRAYER
– not optional!!!
– THE WORD (the Bible)
– be intentional
– there should be a time and place
– We are thirsty for things of the world
– He wants to fill us up with Him so we don’t go back to the same things we used to
– are you thirsting for the wrong things?
2 Timothy 3:16-17
– he wants the word to get implanted in us so we can be complete

You’ve gotta learn to listen to something that you’re not used to listening to
– praise and worship is not for you it’s for HIM

The world says “rest in peace” but God says “RISE IN POWER”
– dead thing are coming back to life
– our dreams and hopes and future
– sometimes there are things you need to leave in the grave

The answer to emptiness and dryness is the Holy Spirit

1 Samuel 17:20-47

Fight through feelings to get to the facts
– fight through the things that come naturally in our minds because we have an assignment

1. Will you fight for your assignment?
– You have to be willing to do the small and insignificant things
    – if you don’t serve the small you will never get the bigger things
– The assignment isn’t the small thing, you get the assignment after you do the small thing
Our opportunities are wrapped in obedience
– obedience, submission, discipline always lead to new assignments
    – obedience doesn’t always require details
        – we wanna know the plan before we do it but that’s not always how God works
    – the details are in the going
    – Normal obedience is important
        – serving
        – giving
        – praying
    – God wants to give us more but He’s not going to give more until we finish what we started
– No good shepherd leaves his sheep with no one to watch over them
    – David left his sheep with the keeper

You carry the supplies someone needs
– David’s assignment was about to change because he was willing to go

2. Who are you fighting?
– you have to learn to tune out all the negative people in your life
    – negative people can set you back. they can set your cause & purpose back
– the enemy will always try to create something new to distract you from your purpose
– Discouragement stands in way of your purpose
    – It took Noah 120 years to build the boat
        – People were telling him he was crazy
            – but when God is in something, he’s going to make that thing work
    – everyone has an opinion in where you’re going
– David leaves the distraction behind

Prayer is the posture that changes everything
– God aligns us with things that will bring him glory
    – If you speak the name of Jesus everything changes

3. Who are we fighting for?
– God qualifies the unqualified
1 Corinthians 1:27
Psalms 37:23-24
– The Lord uses everything in our journey, good or bad, to bring glory to His name
    – Don’t let your past journey keep you from your new destination
        – Don’t let where you’ve been keep you from where you’re going
Is there not a cause worth fighting for?
 2 Chronicles 7:14
– there are things you can do to change the conditions
– The pursuit of God leads to knowledge
We’ve gotta stand up for what we believe in.
– THERE IS AN OFFICE SPACE, SCHOOL HOUSE, FAMILY REUNION THAT NEEDS YOU.
God is looking for a generation of world changers
– it wasn’t about just keeping the sheep, it was about their livelihood
– it wasn’t just a giant, it was a nation!!
