ALL IN
LIVING A LIFE OF DEDICATION TO THE THINGS IN LIFE THAT MATTER THE MOST

1-30-15 Week 4

 

Whatever you do, do it from the heart for the Lord and not for people. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭23‬ CEB)

In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. (‭James‬ ‭2‬:‭17‬ NIV)

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 . (‭II Chronicles‬ ‭16‬:‭9‬a NKJV)

HOW CAN I LIVE ALL IN ?

I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy out the land, and I brought back word to him as it was in my heart. Nevertheless my brethren who went up with me made the heart of the people melt, but I wholly followed the LORD my God. So Moses swore on that day, saying, ‘Surely the land where your foot has trodden shall be your inheritance and your children’s forever, because you have wholly followed the LORD my God.’ And now, behold, the LORD has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the LORD spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old. As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in. Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the LORD spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the LORD will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the LORD said.” Joshua‬ ‭14‬:‭7-12 (NKJV)

Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite to this day, because he wholly followed the LORD God of Israel. (‭Joshua‬ ‭14‬:‭14‬ NKJV)

1)  ALL IN PEOPLE ARE AVAILABLE
I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh Barnea
(Joshua 14:7a NKJV)

If you wait until the wind and the weather are just right, you will never sow anything and never harvest anything. (‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭11‬:‭4‬ GNB)

2)  ALL IN PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT THINKING
I brought back word to him as it was in my heart ( Joshua 14:7bNKJV)

And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature.

There we saw the giants ....  and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.” (‭Numbers‬ ‭13‬:‭32-33‬ NKJV)

they certainly shall not see the land ..... But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land where he went.... (‭Numbers‬ ‭14‬:‭23a- 24‬aNKJV)

If the LORD delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us,..(Numbers 14:8a NKJV)

... It may be that the LORD will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the LORD said.” (Joshua‬ ‭14‬:‭12b NKJV)

3) ALL IN PEOPLE FOLLOW INSTRUCTION

Nevertheless my brethren who went up with me made the heart of the people melt, but I wholly followed the LORD my God. (Joshua 14:8 NKJV)

4) ALL IN PEOPLE ARE PERSISTENT

And now, behold, the LORD has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the LORD spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old. As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in. Now therefore, give me this mountain (Joshua 14:10-12a NKJV)

‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts. (‭Zechariah‬ ‭4‬:‭6‬b NKJV)

For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:  (‭Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭36 NKJV)
