Headline: Why it Matters: Prayer
Focus Scriptures: Nehemiah 2:2-4
The Point: Nehemiah just discovered that his home town had been destroyed completely. He was scared to even ask the King to go home and rebuild. He was hurting because the place that was a source of life for him, and his ancestors, had been demolished. The first thing he did, was seek God in prayer. He knew without a shadow of a doubt that God was the one who could – not only give him strength to be honest with the king, but would give him the ability to go home and rebuild what had been torn down. Our God should be our first call. When we find ourselves in difficult situations our first resource should always be to go God. He wants us to come to him because it is when we go to God in our weaknesses that we are then made strong.
1. Write down 3 things you need God’s help to do.
2. Pray and ask God to provide you with discernment and strength, and then trust that God will come through.

Title-It’s ok to be different
Text-Numbers 23 Verse 19
Synopsis-In life, it’s hard to be different when others want to persecute you for being yourself. However, it’s essential for a Kingdom believer to be different. The Bible states that we are in the world but not of the world. While the world may be intriguing, we are called to be heirs of God. Being an heir of God isn’t always convenient but it will always work out. God has a way of blessing those who remain faithful to his will and way. Therefore, I admonish everyone to walk in your calling and to be different from the average person.
How have you been persecuted for being different?
Why do you think God has called you to be different?
How can your different spirit make a change in the lives of others?

Text: 1 Timothy 1:15-16 NIV
Title: "Public Pivot"
God has to send Jesus because we have issues, we know this is true. Paul is clear that as sinners we should have death but instead of death God sent us Jesus. Paul says that we needed it because of our sin but that Paul was the biggest sinner. Before Paul was Paul he was Saul and he wanted to kill followers of Jesus Christ. However, the Lord called him and made him pivot into Paul. God had a public pivot for Paul that changed his life for life. God wants for us to see the pivots in our lives and make them for Him so that others might get connected with Jesus.
1. What pivot can you make for Jesus today?
2. Who in your life needs to make a pivot for Jesus and their life?
“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!”
On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria.
It’s Umbrella Time:
1. How can you prove whether it is or is not judgement?
2. Does God have to send trouble in order to use trouble?
3. Why does God send judgement in scripture?
4. The question is not is this the judgement of God, the question should be is there a case for the judgement of God in 2020.
As the house shifts, everyone who is connected to the house needs to be ready to shift.
Repent – Is not a negative, it is the first step to the positive.
