HOW TO “*/WIN”/* IN 2010
*/“Getting Things Done”/*
*/ /*
1.
For and In the Kingdom
2.      For and In the Church
3.      For and In the Family
4.      For and In One’s Personal Life
·        This will equip one for getting things done in the many other areas of our lives (i.e., on the job, in business,  etc.)
Golf analogy – correcting a swing flaw.
Big changes often are needed and they feel weird at first.
You must continue them until they become a habit.
Then it becomes natural.
\\ \\ 2 Chronicles 15:1-15 (NKJV) \\ 1 Now the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded.
\\ 2 And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him: “Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin.
The Lord is with you while you are with Him.
If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you.
\\ 3 For a long time Israel has been without the true God, without a teaching priest, and without law; \\ 4 but when in their trouble they turned to the Lord God of Israel, and sought Him, He was found by them.
\\ 5 And in those times there was no peace to the one who went out, nor to the one who came in, but great turmoil was on all the inhabitants of the lands.
\\ 6 So nation was destroyed by nation, and city by city, for God troubled them with every adversity.
\\ 7 But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded!”
\\ 8 And when Asa heard these words and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, *he took courage*, *and removed the abominable idols* from all the land of Judah and Benjamin and from the cities which he had taken in the mountains of Ephraim; and *he restored the altar of the Lord* that was before the vestibule of the Lord.
\\ 9 *Then he gathered all Judah and Benjamin*, and those who dwelt with them from Ephraim, Manasseh, and Simeon, for they came over to him in great numbers from Israel when they saw that the Lord his God was with him.
\\ \\ \\ \\ The southern kingdoms of Judah and Benjamin had long been following after false gods and ignoring their relationship with the one true God (v.
3).
We find in verse 4 that in their distress however, they turned to the Lord.
Times were desperate for them (v. 5 & 6).
And in these desperate times, desperate measures were needed to right the ship.
\\ For some of us, there may be times that our Christian walk, like a golf swing gets a little out of whack.
Maybe a lot out of whack.
When that happens we need to make changes and perhaps even take desperate measures to get the relationship back on track.
What we have here in this story of Asa is the desperate measures they took to get back on track with God.
\\ \\
There are several things that Asa and the Southern Kingdoms of Judah & Benjamin do to *restore a proper relationship w~/ God*.
How to get back on track with God, your dream, vision, goal, destiny

He took courage: became excited, filled with zeal about getting back on track.

#1 *v7.
Be strong*— Be encouraged & make a resolve to be strong.

*your work shall be rewarded*—What you do in the cause and for the glory of God,  will assuredly be followed by the happiest results AND a blessed out outcome both to him and his kingdom.
V8  *he took courage*— Asa became a more zealous reformer than ever after getting a word from the prophet,

using all his royal authority and influence to detach, delete, and destroy every sign or remnant of idolatry from the land.
