What we choose determines what we experience!

We don’t always get to choose all the options that come into our lives but we do get to make a choice from the options that we have.
2 types of power:

- Power of Choice (WILL) - Selection
- Power of CHANGE (WAY) - Connection
The power of choice determines what I’m connected to but the connection itself is what brings the power to change.
Sometimes the WAY “IN” is your WAY “OUT”!
If we are trying to find a way IN the WILL of God, the enemy is also trying to find a WAY IN our lives.

Steadfast - stereos - Standing solid, firm, in determination or resolution; not shakable



Sometimes our WAY “OUT” is his WAY “IN”!

The WAY we choose to disconnect becomes His way in.
Obedience is about connection

Disobedience brings disconnection - Not about punishment

Our supply comes from what we are connected to!

Consequences both good and bad are a result of our connection

Where There’s a WILL to stay connected there’s a WAY to stay supplied
Are we looking for a WAY IN or are we looking for a WAY OUT?
APPLICATION:

Do you want to experience God’s WILL? Do you believe that His WILL is best?

What thoughts, feelings or experiences are shaping your nature?

Are you willing to change your world by changing your mind?

Are you connected to the right WAY?

Are you looking for a WAY IN so that you can get OUT?
