Breakthrough week 3

What are we building in our lives.

  • Do we have fear of not accomplishing something in life?

  • Do we have a drive to become more than we already are?

  • Are we stuck in a rut of life?

There are questions this week I want us to explore.  The questions are above.  Does the fear of not accomplishing something in our lives impact us to do more?  The fear that one day we will grow older and our dreams will have slipped away.  People get into their lives and they so easily get stuck a rut.  Ruts are easy to get stuck in but require us to work hard to get out of.

Genesis 11:3

They said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.” And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar.

Have you ever been in a snow storm and found yourself stuck in a rut?  How much work did it require to get out of that rut. It can be easy to continue in a rut but when we reach the destination that rut takes us in we can be very disappointed.  Yet people often stay in different ruts of their lives and then look back and say:  I wish I had done things differently.  I would have done this or that but…….

  • We all have built into the fabric of who we are the longing to build something.

  • We want to have an impact in some way in this world.

  • The question is what are we doing about it?

The facts are that we need to work hard to get out of the ruts in our lives, businesses, or whatever area we they are in.

In the very begging of life, we see that early in history people had instilled in them the desire to build things.  We all have this desire to build and grow.  If we do not follow those instincts we will be unfulfilled when we reach the end of life.  We are created in the image and likeness of God so it should not surprise anyone that we are meant to build.  Genesis starts by God building or creating the earth. We too have this creative and building inside of us in some form.

Foundations Of Buildings

Matthew 7:24-27

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.

We need to have our lives built upon a great foundation.  When we try to build our lives on a foundation that is not solid.  Many people make a lot of money and find what many call successes in life.  They still are empty and not left fulfilled.  Things can never fill the void inside we are all created to have filled.  There is a spiritual void we need filled, the need to have purpose, and accomplish something worthwhile.

This week we need to focus on building our lives on a proper foundation.  We also need to look at ruts we that can hurt us in our purpose.  Ruts often get us off track and if we lose focus we can find the years go by without accomplishing what we intended.
