Today is the 100th day of 2016. (April 9, 2016)

Consider this rhetorical question.

Have we given the first 100 days of this year. . .100% of our best efforts?

2 Timothy 2:15 in the Message Bible says:

“Concentrate on doing your best for God, work you won’t be ashamed of, laying out the truth plain and simple.”

It’s time for an honest assessment of our efforts.

Your doorbell rings. . .you open the door to find Jesus standing there. . .He looks straight into your soul and says:

“We need to talk.”

Would your spirit soar or would your heart sink?

If He sat down at your kitchen table. . .took out His iPad and began you show you a video of the events in the first 100 days of this year. . .would you be proud of what you saw?

God loves it when we pull close to Him. . .He wants us reading and obeying His Word.

He wants us moving from glory to glory in His marvelous image.  During a recent Rich Thoughts for Breakfast we taught from Revelation 2:29 in the Message Bible.  The Lord used that scripture to show me seven keys of getting better in our spiritual walk every day.

Now, He directed me to put some meat on the bones of the seven points and share it with our world-wide Internet audience on Sunday Night LIVE.

But first, the letter to the church at Thyatira is the LONGEST of the seven letters, but was written to the smallest and seemingly least important of the seven cities. The point is God cares about each and every one of us.  No one is ever left out.

Here’s our primary scripture for this teaching.

Revelation 2:19 in the Message Bible says:

What we’re thinking, speaking and planning will never become a reality until we actually act on what we’ve been thinking, speaking and planning.

Here are seven actions to ignite your destiny.

Action # 1     Think about something. . .good.

Proverbs 23:7 says:

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. . .”

Have you ever had someone. . .perhaps your spouse or best friend. . .ask you what you were thinking about. . .only to say “nothing.”

First off, thinking about nothing is not humanly possible.

Second, if it were possible. . .it would be an ignorant. . .if not, unwise thing to do.

Third, let’s never waste time thinking about nothing.

Thinking about nothing. . .is both bad and sad. . because you’ll never know when we’re through thinking about nothing.

Never let your circumstances define your destiny.  Rather create the circumstances that will assure your destiny.
