Here is the teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE. Join us at 6 PM EST.
# 1 Dream Bigger.
First, ANGER. Anger is the result of something that happen to you or something that didn’t happen to you.
Second, SADNESS. Sadness or sorrow over what did or didn’t happen will suck the very life out of you along with any passion for your success.
Third, FRUSTRATION. Frustration is what you perceive as the roadblock to changing your circumstances.
Fourth, RESENTMENT. Resentment rises when what you’re going through doesn’t seem fair.
Fifth, REVENGE. Revenge is a spirit that links up with anger. Don’t let it happen or it will cause much bigger problems later.
The world has a lot of remedies for this. . .which is the cause of a great deal of mayhem happening today.
Sixth, GUILT. Guilt will hinder your dreams from coming true because it forces your focus to the past therefore blocking your anticipation for the future.
Seventh, QUITTING. Quitting is the devil’s way of talking you out of God’s future for you by making you perceive there’s more trouble than God can handle through you.
Luke 9:62 TLB
“But Jesus told him, “Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God.”
# 2 Speak Boldly
“For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”
Before you can speak boldly with authority. . .there are four steps you must take.
First, be comforted by the Holy Spirit.
Second, be encouraged about your possibilities.
Third, be confident because of who you are in Him.
Finally, boldly speak the truth or the thing you want to come to pass.

“So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?”

“I am very happy because I now am of good courage and have perfect confidence in you in all things.”
# 3 Think Creatively.
George Bernard Shaw said:
“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.”
Edmund Burke said:
“There is a boundary to men's passions when they act from feelings; but none when they are under the influence of imagination.”

“Live out of your imagination, not your history.”
Albert Einstein, the genius physicist, once said:
“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

"Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?"

“In my experience, the best creative work is never done when one is unhappy.”
