If you are just now joining us, we are reading the section Opposition to Victory in the book Graffiti: scribbles from different sides of the street. It all started this summer when a group of crazy people decided to take a challenge and participate in Graffiti Summer. Download the FREE Graffiti Study and Do guide and jump right in. You can find the introduction here under the Study and Do header tab in the header. We’d love to meet you along the journey!
I have been at youth camp this week and I can tell you there is no better place to witness the truth of opposition to victory than there! While I’ll share more this week about the opposition, let’s begin this week with our lesson podcast.
Opposition to Victory
Have you ever just wanted to win without going through trials and opposition? That would be ME!!! But there is value in the opposition we face, if we embrace it and don’t let it get the best of us.
5 Steps to Being a World Changer
1. The Call
What has God placed on your heart to do? Do you feel the tug?
Hang on to the promise of your call when hard times come.
2. The Plan
Are you one who runs ahead of the plan or one who analyzes a plan to death?
Don’t be afraid to make a wrong move — just move and let God make it right!
3. The Opposition
Opposition will come in many ways. Be prepared and don’t let it throw you off course.
In Exodus 6 – 14 we read how Moses met opposition 10 times, but he never gave up.
Opposition builds your character so you’ll be a stronger leader.
4. The Failure
Proverbs 15:22 “Refuse good advice and watch your plans fail; take good counsel and watch them succeed.”
God is OK with our failures. He is not OK with our quitting.
5. The Victory
Such a sweet place to be and miracle to see.
Put your confidence in God and He will bring you the reward.
My prayer is you are ready to step out and follow God. Be a world changer — people are counting on you!
Our DO assignment for the week challenges us to DO some opening up. When we are comfortable opening up with others, they become more relaxed in wanting to open up to us. I hope you’ll take up the challenge.
It’s time to open up and give others the freedom to do the same.
