Session # 2 FOCUS Me: On Who You are as God
God’s Pathway to Always Pleasing God with My Life
1. FOCUS Me: on Who You are as God: v.9 In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
• God wants me to constantly remind myself of just Who it is I am talking to.
• John 1:1-3 (Creator),
• John 5:28 (Judge);
• Col. 1:15-16 (Sustainer);
• Hebrews 1:3 (Exact Representation of God), who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
• Hebrews 11:3 (Framed the Universe with a word!).
• This One holds in His Hand my life’s breath (Daniel 5:23).
• He has told me that life eternal is when I KNOW Him (John 17:3).
2. CONTROL Me: because You have the Plan for my life. v. 10a Your kingdom come.
3. LEAD Me: so I Do Your Will with my life. v. 10b Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.
4. SUPPLY Me: so I can see Your Hand in my life. v. 11 Give us this day our daily bread.
5. CLEANSE Me: so I keep Your Blessing on my life. v. 12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.
6. PROTECT Me: so I don’t lose Your Power in my life. v. 13a And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.
7. EMPTY Me: so You get all the credit for my life. v. 13b For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen
Now, join me as we simply use the Word of God to turn our minds’ eye above, and focus upon Who it is we are talking to as we Pray! Look first at Revelation 4:6.
The Throne, The Fire and The Crowns
When we gather as we do today, and open God’s Word, we are asking Him to speak to us. Sometimes what we hear touches on a small part of our lives, other times what He says is huge. This evening, the topic we have arrived at to study is HUGE.
The only way to understand the gravity of what we are hearing from God’s Word today is to go to where it will matter. That is why we have opened to the end of the Bible, Revelation 4.
