Lebron James Quadroople double
26 points, 10 rebounds 11 assists in the win.
There’s just one problem – James also gave up 11 turnover
-This mentality as Christians of going over our lives and examining ourselves

I am enough 
I am your provider 
Your comforter 
Your friend 
Your healer 
Your lover 
Testimony of me fasting from meat and bread 
they were on my thoughts instead your my thoughts now 
Exedous : Israliets
God took Israel and freed them from Egypt
they have seen all the miracles
they saw all the plagues,
they saw the sea split as they walk through
God let them into the wilderness
The Message Chapter 16

On the fifteenth day of the second month after they had left Egypt, the whole company of Israel moved on from Elim to the Wilderness of Sin which is between Elim and Sinai. The whole company of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron there in the wilderness. The Israelites said, “Why didn’t GOD let us die in comfort in Egypt where we had lamb stew and all the bread we could eat? You’ve brought us out into this wilderness to starve us to death, the whole company of Israel!”

-After all the miracels Israel is still complaining still wondering what God is doing through all his wonder and miracles
The Message Chapter 16

GOD said to Moses, “I’m going to rain bread down from the skies for you. The people will go out and gather each day’s ration. I’m going to test them to see if they’ll live according to my Teaching or not. On the sixth day, when they prepare what they have gathered, it will turn out to be twice as much as their daily ration.”

6–7  Moses and Aaron told the People of Israel, “This evening you will know that it is GOD who brought you out of Egypt; and in the morning you will see the Glory of GOD. Yes, he’s listened to your complaints against him. You haven’t been complaining against us, you know, but against GOD.”

The Message Chapter 16

GOD spoke to Moses, “I’ve listened to the complaints of the Israelites. Now tell them: ‘At dusk you will eat meat and at dawn you’ll eat your fill of bread; and you’ll realize that I am GOD, your God.’ ”

13–15  That evening quail flew in and covered the camp and in the morning there was a layer of dew all over the camp. When the layer of dew had lifted, there on the wilderness ground was a fine flaky something, fine as frost on the ground. The Israelites took one look and said to one another, man-hu (What is it?). They had no idea what it was.

God provided for Israel every day bread and meat
A miracle was happeneing daily and Israle was taking it for granted once more
Israel would be like “Oh there is a God, praise God!”
“We can eat! God provides!”
Moses then went up to mount sainai to meet God and get the ten commandments
Moses is then taking forver up there with God and this is what happens
The Message Chapter 32

When the people realized that Moses was taking forever in coming down off the mountain, they rallied around Aaron and said, “Do something. Make gods for us who will lead us. That Moses, the man who got us out of Egypt—who knows what’s happened to him?”

instead of taking the miracle as a sign and seeking God  They took the miracle for granted 
They took the miracle as normal
Israel was satisfied with the works of God but Moses saught the ways of God
Exedous 33: 13
“ If it is true that you look favorably on me, let me know your ways so I may understand you more fully and continue to enjoy your favor. And remember that this nation is your very own people.
Let me know your ways so i may understand you more fully
Seing a resteraunt sign and seing how amazing it is but not seing the sign and going to enjoy it know it
The miracle is a arrow a sign to God and his presence 
Whenever God does something amazing and big in your life he’s not done at that point
He’s pointing to him 
He’s telling you he wants you to know him in that way 
If God provides for you he wants you to know him as a provider 
If God heals he wants you to know him as a healer 
If god protects he wants to know you as a protector and a fortres
God wants you to know him so much 
God wants you to seek him 
Exedous 33: 13
“ If it is true that you look favorably on me, let me know your ways so I may understand you more fully and continue to enjoy your favor. And remember that this nation is your very own people.
Let me know your ways so i may understand you more fully
Seing a resteraunt sign and seing how amazing it is but not seing the sign and going to enjoy it know it
Show me your ways that I might know you
The testimony reveals the nature, but that is a invitation to know him
Once you see what the sign points too you never satisfied with just the sign again.
Like a exit sign a miracle is a sign
That is a way for you to know God in that way
Moses was a seaker of Gods presence and knowing God and Israel just chased miracels
God wants us to be like Moses
To seek after him
To see the miracle as a sing of a different way of knowing God
Genesis 32
Jacob as he wrestled with God 
The Message Chapter 32

But Jacob stayed behind by himself, and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. When the man saw that he couldn’t get the best of Jacob as they wrestled, he deliberately threw Jacob’s hip out of joint.

26  The man said, “Let me go; it’s daybreak.”

Jacob said, “I’m not letting you go ’til you bless me.”

27  The man said, “What’s your name?”

He answered, “Jacob.”

28  The man said, “But no longer. Your name is no longer Jacob. From now on it’s Israel (God-Wrestler); you’ve wrestled with God and you’ve come through.”

29  Jacob asked, “And what’s your name?”

The man said, “Why do you want to know my name?” And then, right then and there, he blessed him.

30  Jacob named the place Peniel (God’s Face) because, he said, “I saw God face-to-face and lived to tell the story!”

31–32  The sun came up as he left Peniel, limping because of his hip.

-Going into this encounter
-Jacob has gone into this by stealing his brothers birth right
by manipulating and startegizing his way through life to leadership and power
through the proccess of the wrestle with God he left with a wound
he also left with a new name and a name that he was suppost to have
his name was changed from jacob to Israel which means “he who struggless with God”
thats the same for us, when we are willing to encounter the lord
when we really go there and let him transform us and change us
we find who we were always meant to be
And we become more of that
In worship if we are willing and determined to “not let him go”
we too will encounter God
we will discover our identity
we will discover
we will forever be changed
If God we’re to preach a sermon to all humanity what would he say 
“This is my son” 
It’s all about Jesus and a relationship with him and it always has only been about him 
God is jealous for you 
Jesus culture point about ppl being stagnant in their faith and being satisfied of where they are
(pastor/leaders 95%) 
Jesus never wants you to stop growing and knowing him 
He is inexaustable 
There will always be a new season 
There will always be a new direction of where God wants to lead you 
There is always a plan for our life, there will never be a “your done and your good here” 
God wants you to follow him, seek him, wrestle with him, know him, and have him always on your mind. 
One moment of his presence changes everything 
The importance of worship leaders 
Leading people into the presence of God 
We need to be people of his presence 
Why do you think when Peter was walking and his shadow was healing people? It wasn’t him it was God walking with him. It was his presence 
We need to be people of his presence 
God wants to know you
You can have as much of God as you can 
The invitation is open 
I want you to seek and I want you to know me 
When you seek you will find my joy, my presence 
I am so jealous for you, I want you, not a part but all of you. I want  everything 
I am enough 
I am your provider 
Your comforter 
Your friend 
Your healer 
Your lover
