Here is the teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE.  Join us at 6 PM (EST).

1.         Recognize the One who gives you the power.

1 Corinthians 1:18 TLB

“I know very well how foolish it sounds to those who are lost, when they hear that Jesus died to save them. But we who are saved recognize this message as the very power of God.”

John 14:26 AMP

“But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.”

Romans 12:6-8 AMP

“Having gifts (faculties, talents, qualities) that differ according to the grace given us, let us use them: [He whose gift is] prophecy, [let him prophesy] according to the proportion of his faith;  7[He whose gift is] practical service, let him give himself to serving; he who teaches, to his teaching; 8He who exhorts (encourages), to his exhortation; he who contributes, let him do it in simplicity and liberality; he who gives aid and superintends, with zeal and singleness of mind; he who does acts of mercy, with genuine cheerfulness and joyful eagerness.”

1 Corinthians 12:1 AMP

“NOW ABOUT the spiritual gifts (the special endowments of supernatural energy), brethren, I do not want you to be misinformed.”

2.         Recognize your opportunity

Psalm 90:12 TLB

“Teach us to number our days and recognize how few they are; help us to spend them as we should.”

Colossians 4:5

“Behave yourselves wisely [living prudently and with discretion] in your relations with those of the outside world (the non-Christians), making the very most of the time and seizing (buying up) the opportunity.”

3.         Recognize your standard operating procedure.

First, make no mistake about it. . .God knows your thoughts.

Psalm 94:11 NLT

“The Lord knows the thoughts of man, that they are vain (empty and futile--only a breath).”

Second, God will change your standard operating way of thinking.

Psalm 94:19 NLT

“In the multitude of my [anxious] thoughts within me, You comfort cheer and delight my soul!”

Romans 12:2 NLT

“. . .let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. . .”

Third, when God touches your life. . .your circumstances won’t matter.

Proverbs 15:15 NLT

“All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil [by anxious thoughts and forebodings], but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast [regardless of circumstances].”

Fourth, you can have a successful way of operating and living on a daily basis.

Proverbs 16:3 AMP

“Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.”

Psalm 55:22 AMP

“Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail).”

Now that sounds like a really successful way of living.

4.         Recognize your abilities and gifts

God has given us ability to perform at a level we never previously thought possible. . .He sees a greater potential in us. . .than we’ve ever seen in ourselves.

Romans 12:6 TLB

“God has given each of us the ability to do certain things well….”

2 Timothy 1:14 TLB

“Guard well the splendid, God-given ability you received as a gift from the Holy Spirit who lives within you.”

2 Peter 1:5 AMP

“For this very reason, adding your diligence [to the divine promises], employ every effort in exercising your faith to develop virtue (excellence, resolution, Christian energy), and in [exercising] virtue [develop] knowledge (intelligence).”

Ephesians 5:15-16 NIV

“Be very careful, then, how you live — not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.”

5.         Recognize your seed

Job 42:10 AMP

“And the Lord turned the captivity of Job and restored his fortunes, when he prayed for his friends; also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.”

2 Samuel 24:25

“And David built there an altar unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD was intreated for the land, and the plague was stayed from Israel.”

Luke 6:38

 “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

Luke 6:38 NLT

“If you give, you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over. Whatever measure you use in giving--large or small--it will be used to measure what is given back to you."

Psalm 96:7-8 NLT

“O nations of the world, recognize the Lord; recognize that the Lord is glorious and strong.  Give to the Lord the glory he deserves! Bring your offering and come into his courts.”

6.         Recognize your harvest

Psalm 126:6

“He who goes forth bearing seed and weeping [at needing his precious supply of grain for sowing] shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”

Psalm 126:6 MSG

“And now, God, do it again— bring rains to our drought-stricken lives.  So those who planted their crops in despair will shout hurrahs at the harvest, So those who went off with heavy hearts will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing.”

Personalize for you.

<<Your Name>> will come home laughing with armloads of blessings.

7.         Recognize your destiny
