“Jesus, the Unexpected King!”
“When the men had come to Him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to You, saying, ‘Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?’” (Luke 7:20 NKJV)
1. Look in unexpected places!
“…and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” (Deuteronomy 4:29 NKJV)
2. Expand your Jesus box!
“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me…” (Galatians 2:20 NASB)
3. Our expectations limits God’s blessing!
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.“ And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”
(Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT)
Breakthrough is found in the breaking!
Triumph is found in the trials!
Victory is found in the valley!
“But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:57 NLT)
