God loves kids, children are precious to God, come as a child to God
Matthew 18:3 (NKJV)
3 and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.”
- We need to come to God like a child waiting to hear from their Daddy!
- Children remind us of how God wants us to live.
- We get so busy with life that we fail to renew our minds with the Word of God.
Isaiah 55:9 (NKJV)
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways,
- The world tells us to only consider ‘you’, but God says in Jeremiah:
Jeremiah 17:5 (NKJV)
Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord.
- God wants to re-father us and renew us in the spirit of our minds so that we begin to think like God.
- Our minds are brain washed to do it ourselves.
- Believe the words of Jesus. He says to come to Him and He will give your rest.
- The devil brings life against you. He wants to steal your child-like faith.
- The devil knows God more than us, so we need to learn more about God.
Joel 3:10 (NKJV)
Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’
- Confess your weakness to God and then you will become strong in Him.
- Our God is great. He will do anything for you if you will trust Him.
- In the movie Captain America the bullies attacked him just like the devil tries to rob you of God’s best for you.
- When life knocks you down – bring the Word of God and trust Him that He has all the goodness for you because you are a child of God.
- What do you think about Jesus, don’t keep Him a secret.
- You are more than a conqueror
- Get back up again and don’t quit.
- God will do it. It will change your life.

- See yourself as God does. Ask Him to show you who you are.
- Share about the goodness of God to others.

- God is awakening the seeds of the Word.

20 My son, give attention to my words;
- Attend to His word. It will cause you to prosper. God wants you to succeed.
- The devil thinks the Bible is boring and tries to persuade you that it is.
- Get out of the flesh, don’t go backwards.
- God wants to move you into a better place.
- God’s radical great love for you will set you free.
- He woos you back to Him. He still loves you no matter what.
- It sets you free. You don’t have to work hard to earn a sticker of appreciation. God already put a sticker on the chart when He sent Jesus to die for us.
- He came for all so we could have the faith of a little child and trust Him implicitly.
- Remember whose you are. Confess whose you are.
- The key to breakthrough is the sacrifice of praise.
- God gave Jesus up to the Cross so that you and I could be made right with God.
