Ice Breaker

What is one goal you'd like to accomplish in your lifetime?  

Purpose

The purpose of today's lesson is to understand that God is going to take us as a group, and you as an individual to a greater place that we've ever been. 

Scripture

Genesis 12:1-2 NLT The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. 2 I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others.

DISCUSSION

Blestination: God's predetermined plan to bless us and take us to a place that He can bless others through us. Describes the greatest place of blessing (resources, anointing) and influence so that we can connect people to Him.

God changes your destiny by calling you a new name. You are not what haters say about you, you are what God says about you. God changed Abram's name to Abraham. 

Q1 -  What are some names you believe God is calling you? How is this different from what people have called you?

Q2 - Are you living all that God has for you? Or have you settled for something less?

Q3 - What dreams has God given you for your life? What are things you can do now to achieve your dream?

You'll never get where God called you if you never let go of your comfort zone, your attitudes, your fears, your limitations. 

Q4 - What do you need to leave behind? What habits need to change in your life in order to reach what God has purposed for you

The promise land is right on the other side of the mountain. 

Q5 - In order to get to your promise land, you have to get through the mountains. What mountains are trying to stop you from getting to your promise land?

Q6 - What dreams are you going to achieve from this point forward?

Declaration: "There is more for me and my family! I will not settle for the land I'm in, I will not accept the limitations! I will be all that God says I am!"

Application

Challenge yourself to live in all that God has for you. This week, don't speak any negative words over yourself. Speak life over you, your family, and your situation. Finally come to the point where you do something that you've been putting off for some time.
