Notes: Follow the Leader (1-2-3 Eyes on Me)
Pastor Jennie Lusko
Matthew 6, Psalm 123
Fresh Life Church
March 20, 2016
Have you taken the challenge to say the Lords Prayer three times a day?
Matthew 6:10-13 NKJV Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
Follow the Leader is a child’s game that helps children learn to listen and pay attention to the adults voice and direction.
Ephesians 5:1 NKJV Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
God is our leader.
Psalm 23:3 NKJV He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
1- We have a real enemy
1 Peter 5:8 NKJV Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
The evil one is a thief and he wants to take from you.
Ephesians 6:12 NKJV For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
2- We need Protection
We where helmets, we brush our teeth and wear seat belts to protect ourselves.
3- We need to follow God’s Word
Matthew 6:13 NKJV And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
4- We have the delivery.
Romans 8:31 NKJV What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Psalm 18:2 NKJV The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
As you follow your Leader:
1- Renew your decision to follow Him everyday
Ephesians 6:10 NKJV Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
We are to seek help “this day” from the Lord.
2- When you walk with God, you can hear Him better.
Isaiah 30:21 NKJV Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left.
Genesis 6:9 NKJV This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.
Genesis 6:22 NKJV Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.
Noah did exactly as God commanded because he walked with God.
3- Wake up! Watch out! There’s a way out!
We often forget that we are in a battle. Wake up!
Matthew 26:41 NKJV Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
1 Corinthians 10:12-13 NKJV Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
If we start going down the road of temptation, God provides us a way out and gives us agents of rescue.
There is always hope because God’s grace is sufficient for us.
When we fall we will get back up.
God is not seeking perfection from us, He is seeking pursuit.
4- We must know His word
Our Savior was tempted, He turned to the word of God to battle temptation.
Matthew 4:1-11 NKJV Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’” Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: ‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, ‘In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’” Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’” Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you,[d] Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’” Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.
We shouldn’t try to change God’s word, we should let God’s Word change us.
Psalm 119:9 NKJV How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word.
Psalm 119:11 NKJV Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.
1-2-3 Eyes on Me, keep your eyes on God.
2 Chronicles 16:9 NKJV For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.”
God’s eyes are on the look out for us to look at Him. It is God’s power that we need.
Psalm 123 NKJV Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, So our eyes look to the Lord our God,
Lift my eyes to see the Lord!
