WORSHIP FIRST!

They That Wait Upon the Lord (E)

Hid it under a bushel NO!

Ancient of Days-Blessing & Honor

He builds Draw the Circle around three main circles...

1- Dream Big
like Joshua asking God to make the sun and moon to stand sill till they could avenge his enemies (Joshua 10:13)
2- Pray Hard
its about being persistent in prayer.
3- Think Long
is about playing the long game, not the short game.
Then he says “Keep Circling”

Honi the Circle Maker

dirt into mud!
When God uses us and we see Victory---the enemy is not far behind to try to dishonor God and his working in us and the lives around us.
Just like Honi after the rain, some Sanhedrin leaders were upset just like Jesus healing on the the Sabbath.
GOD IS STILL LOOKING FOR CIRCLE MAKERS TODAY
Bold prayers honor God
and God honors Bold prayers.
GOD IS NOT OFFENDED BY OUR BIGGEST DREAMS OR OUR BOLDEST PRAYERS—PEOPLE ARE!!
There is nothing God loves more than:
keeping promises,
answering prayers,
performing miracles, and
fulfilling dream --- THAT IS WHO HE IS!
TODAY—NOTHING HAS CHANGED...
God is for you, just as Honi experienced on that dry day.
We are ONE PRAYER away
from a dream fulfilled
a promise kept
a miracle performed
PRAYERS ARE PROPHECIES
They are the best predictors of your spiritual future.
GETTING WHAT YOU WANT IS NOT THE GOAL—
Prayer is not a magic trick and God is no Genie!
The goal is glorifying God by drawing circles around the promises, miracles, and dreams He wants for you.
Phil. 4.13
Philippians 4:13 NLT
13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
IT’S ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS
THAT ARE GOD-CENTERED
NOT SELF-CENTERED!
When we feel underqualified and overwhelmed-- that is when God has us right where He wants us.
That is how we learn to live in raw dependence — and raw dependence is the raw material out of which God performs His greatest miracles.
Miracles are the by-product of prayers that are prayed.
That should be all the motivation we need to pray.
Hebrews 13.8
Hebrews 13:8 NLT
8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
God has determined that certain expressions of His power will only be exercised in response to prayer.
Simply put, God won’t do it unless we pray for it.
here’s the good news:
We can live with holy anticipation that God is going to answer our prayers.
Why? Because we never know how or when or where God is going to answer, but: He will answer.
His answers are not limited by your requests.
We pray out of our ignorance, but God answers out of His omniscience.
We pray out of our impotence, but God answers out of His omnipotence.
God has the ability to answer the prayers we should have prayed but lacked the knowledge or ability to even ask.
God is God and He always will be God!!
Seriously, “Is there a limit to God’s power?”
God is infinitely bigger than your biggest problem or biggest dream.
And while we’re on the topic...His grace is infinitely bigger than your biggest sin.
How big is your God?
Is He big enough to heal your marriage or heal your child?
Is He bigger than a positive MRI or a negative evaluation?
Is He bigger than your secret sin or secret dream?
WE MUST CONTINUE TO DRAW PRAYER CIRCLES
around everything from life goals, relationships, property, business dealings, children and friends.
