New Growth

New Growth

This is part seven of our series Dream Bigger. In 2018 we are celebrating 75 years since King's Church International was founded and it is a time to dream bigger dreams for what God is going to do.

Part 7 of the series is New Influence, and you can listen to the podcast or read the summary below.

Key Passage

God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.
— Genesis 1:28
Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.
— Acts 2:41

Recap

Recognise that growth is promised, and natural, and understand what we must do so that we enter into those promises. 

  1. Growth is promised when we receive vision from God
  2. Growth is promised when we remain close to God  
  3. Growth is promised when we recognise and follow godly leadership  
  4. Growth is promised when we all play our part to build up the church  
  5. Growth is promised when we focus on being disciples and disciple-makers.

Application

As a church, we have already seen tremendous growth this year, but we are believing for and expecting more. There may be areas in your life where you feel stagnant. Before you experience growth you need to understand the promises you’ve been given. Read Genesis 1:28, Exodus 1:6-7, Acts 2:41, Isaiah 9:7 and see the promises and examples of what natural spiritual growth looks like. 

In your ministry, you may feel like you have tried and failed. But in John 12:24 it says "Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." Wherever or whenever you have planted seeds in the past, believe that God will bring these back to life and be ready to reap a big harvest!

Declaration

I will see miraculous growth in all areas of my life.

Prayer

Thank you God for the promises you have given me. Thank you that you are always working in me and around me. Help me to be ready for the miraculous growth I am about to see in my life. Amen

New Influence

New Influence

This is part six of our series Dream Bigger. In 2018 we are celebrating 75 years since King's Church International was founded and it is a time to dream bigger dreams for what God is going to do.

Part 6 of the series is New Influence, and you can listen to the podcast or read the summary below.

Key Passage

Genesis 37-47 (The Life of Joseph)

Can we find anyone like this man, one in whom is the spirit of God?
— Genesis 41:38

Recap

See the power of a life that is lived for God. Understand that the influence of our lives, our families, and our church can change the world. 

  1. ONE INDIVIDUAL can have a great influence 
  2. ONE FAMILY can have a great influence 
  3. ONE GROUP OF PEOPLE can have a great influence

Application

We all contain a huge potential to be influences wherever we go. God has equipped you with everything you need to influence the people and places He has called you to. Pray for opportunities to be an influence this week.

Your family are also called to be an influence. If there are things in your family stopping you from reaching your potential, resolve them. Pray together, forgive each other and move forward as a unit into the promises God has for you.

As a church, we are moving into a new spiritual atmosphere where we will see great change. The church is called to restore that which has been broken, in our towns and in our nation. Isaiah 58:12; "Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings."

Each one of us has a part to play to see the Kingdom of God here on Earth. Pray and hear what it is God wants you to do to build His Kingdom.

Declaration

I am called to be an influence wherever I go.

Prayer

Thank you Lord that I am called to be an influence to others. Help me to always walk in Your ways and to be a light wherever I go. Amen.

New Praise & Worship

New Praise & Worship

This is part five of our series Dream Bigger. In 2018 we are celebrating 75 years since King's Church International was founded and it is a time to dream bigger dreams for what God is going to do.

Part 5 of the series is New Praise & Worship, and you can listen to the podcast or read the summary below.

Key Scripture

"Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her.

When her owners realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to face the authorities. They brought them before the magistrates and said, “These men are Jews, and are throwing our city into an uproar by advocating customs unlawful for us Romans to accept or practice.”

The crowd joined in the attack against Paul and Silas, and the magistrates ordered them to be stripped and beaten with rods. After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison, and the jailer was commanded to guard them carefully. When he received these orders, he put them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks.

About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God...

...and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!”

The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his household were baptized. The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God—he and his whole household."

Recap

We need to understand that we need to see the victory by entering a new level of consistent and powerful praise & worship in every season of life.  

The main points this week were:

  1. A people that praise God in all circumstances
  2. Praise that releases the supernatural and opens prison doors
  3. Praise that impacts lives and families

Application

We were made to worship! God has called us to be joyful in all seasons. Think about the situation Paul and Silas were in. They were stripped, beaten, mocked and thrown in prison but they still sang songs of praise to God.

1 Thessalonians 5:18; "give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."

If you are facing a tough situation this week, worship and give thanks to God. Focus your mind fully on the majesty of God. Start by thanking God for everything He has done, and every blessing, and allow praise to overflow from your heart. 

Be encouraged by these passages and declare them over your life this week.

Zephaniah 3:17; "The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Proverbs 18:21; "The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit."

Psalm 34:1; "I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips."

Declaration

I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.

Prayer

Thank you Lord for every blessing you have given me. Thank you that you go ahead of me and promise to always be with me. Help me to praise you this week, in all circumstances.

New Leaders

New Leaders

This is part four of our series Dream Bigger. In 2018 we are celebrating 75 years since King's Church International was founded and it is a time to dream bigger dreams for what God is going to do.

Part 4 of the series is New Leaders, and you can listen to the podcast or read the summary below.

Key scripture

"Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." - Acts 2:14-21

Recap

We received a really powerful word this week that challenged us all to think about how we are personally developing as leaders. We must recognise that the only way the church will grow is by seeing new leadership; from many people and in every area of our lives. 

1. Existing groups of leaders
2. Radically converted leaders
3. Multiracial leaders from different socio-economic backgrounds
4. Spirit-filled leaders
5. Young leaders
6. Women leaders
7. Leaders who will bring the influence  of the Kingdom of God in society as well as in the church 

Application

You may have been really challenged by the message this week. Have you accepted God's call of leadership on your life? We are all called to be leaders, no matter what that may involve. 

Declare this verse this week as you ask God to reveal His calling of leadership on your life.

2 Timothy 1:7; "For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline."

Declaration

God has called me to be a leader, His Spirit is on me and He is with me.

Prayer

Thank you Lord that you have called me to lead, I pray that you would reveal this calling to me and give me the strength and courage to fulfil it.
