Scriptures and Key Points:


  • The Kingdom of God is built on relationships. First, with God; then with one another.
  • God’s timing is always perfect.
  • The wisdom is in the strategy.


Luke 1:37 NKJV For with God nothing will be impossible.


  • When God births the vision in your heart, He then reveals His strategy.
  • “God, what is the next step?”
  • Synchronicity of God- seemingly unrelated pieces that are actually connected
  • With God, there is no such thing as coincidence.
  • Advance the Kingdom of God and see people come to know Jesus
  • Defining moments change the course of your life.
  • We have to say “Yes” to God in those moments.
  • Each day is a new day dawning.
  • Simple obedience is the highest form of worship.
  • The first time the word “worship” is mentioned in scripture it is used in the context of obedience to God.
  • We become the living worshippers who step into moments by saying “yes” to God.
  • And we keep making those decisions and they define our destiny and our future.
  • When we make wrong decisions, God can redeem them.
  • Recognize that everything you have isn’t yours, it’s His and how can you invest that into the Kingdom of God.
  • There are moments of unexpected detours.


The test is not the test. How you respond to the test at that moment, that’s the test.


  • Respond like Jesus would, which is always in the opposite spirit.
  • To forgive someone and pray a blessing on them is quite a significant thing. It allows God to do His work.
  • Take the high road.
  • “If they’re using me and I know they’re using me, they’re not really using me; I’m giving it away.”
  • Change is never easy, but it is a necessity of life.
  • Be thankful for all that God has done.
  • “This vision is too big for me to comprehend. It’s Your vision. So I ask that You bring the people and resources to fulfill that vision.”
  • Keep your vision of destination and of hope.
  • Worship is warfare.


2 Chronicles 20 NKJV …For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.”…


  • Those defining moments require a step of faith and decision.


James 2:26 NKJV For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.


  • Put your faith to action.


Matthew 17:20 NKJV …if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.


  • Pastoring the region together.
  • With one fishing pole you catch a fish. But with a mended net working together, cast by the Lord, we catch a lot more fish.
  • It’s impactful when you follow the Spirit into what He’s leading you to do.
  • Everyone has a unique calling.
  • Not retirement, but refirement.
