Message Notes

Genesis #29: The Blessing - How to know what's best?

The "WHAT" is obvious... when is more difficult.

Things change, things stay the same

The problem wasn't Laban, but the question

How did Jacob know when?

He was convinced of God's plan.

He was aware of his circumstances.

God confirmed it was time

How do we know what's best?

Knowing God is key to knowing what's best: His plan

Knowing God is key to knowing what's best: What’s possible

Knowing God is key to knowing what's best: God speaks

John 14:26 NIV

Merger Prayer Focus: Working through Difficulties

Whenever people come together for a shared purpose, they should acknowledge potential difficulties. Each person has ways of communicating, expectations, or baggage from the past. These might be traditions, or unspoken ways of handling problems. They might be differing communication methods, or past hurts that people have buried. What are the difficulties that might be facing the new church?

  1. Pray for an awareness of the potential difficulties that may hinder the church. John 13:35

  2. Pray for an openness to new traditions. Gal 1:14

  3. Pray for conflict and hard feelings to be forgiven. Matt 6:14

  4. Pray for ineffective systems to be set aside. Mark 2:22

  5. Pray for clear communication of expectations. Jer 29:11

  6. Pray that turf issues will be minimal. 1 Cor 1:10

  7. Pray for a healthy grief process. Matt 5:4
