See What God Says

20/20 Vision – See What God Says

We’re so glad you’ve decided to spend part of your day with us at Living Water Church. We pray that the message will inspire and encourage you to be all you can for Christ. 20/20 vision is the hallmark of NORMAL vision. When believers have NORMAL vision they see what God sees and they’re going to see the limitless opportunities for the purposes of advancing God’s Kingdom. Today we’ll look at a people who were told something by God but most of them could only see what they were seeing and therefore they couldn’t enter into the promises that God had made…stay tuned to hear a word from God.

20/20 Vision – See What God See’s
Sunday, January 26, 2020 – Pastor George M. Dupree
 
Isaiah 33:17 Your eyes will behold the king in his beauty; they will see a land that stretches afar.
• • •
God told Moses to send 12 men and search the land that He was giving to them.
• • •
Numbers 13:1-2NKJV

1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel; from each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a leader among them.”

• • •
GOD SAID He was GIVING the land to the children of Israel.
 
The mistake of the spies was they saw what MAN sees, NOT what GOD sees.
 
The key to seeing what God sees is to know His word and to believe it. It’s funny that sometimes God will call us brave, even when we feel afraid, He says we’re righteous, even though sometimes we don’t feel that way. He’s the God who calls things differently.
 
• • •
Romans 4:17NKJV

17 (as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

• • •
Moses told them to spy out the land. He wanted to know what the land was like, if the people were weak or strong etc. He said be of good courage and bring back some fruit from the land.
 
THEY SAID – we can’t
• • •
Numbers 13:27-33NKJV

27 Then they told him, and said: “We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. 28 Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there. 29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the South; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Jordan.” 30 Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.” 31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.” 32 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. 33 There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”

• • •
So they went to spy out the land and then they came back with a bad report, it was bad because it was contrary to what God had said.
 
They compared themselves to their enemy and they saw themselves as small and weak and then they were like grasshoppers in their own sight…
 
If we want to see what God sees we have to hear what He says.
 
Then we have to be doers of what He has said for us to do.
• • •
James 1:22-26TPT

22 Don’t just listen to the Word of Truth and not respond to it, for that is the essence of self-deception. So always let his Word become like poetry written and fulfilled by your life! 23 If you listen to the Word and don’t live out the message you hear, you become like the person who looks in the mirror of the Word to discover the reflection of his face in the beginning. 24 You perceive how God sees you in the mirror of the Word, but then you go out and forget your divine origin. 25 But those who set their gaze deeply into the perfecting law of liberty are fascinated by and respond to the truth they hear and are strengthened by it—they experience God’s blessing in all that they do! 26 If someone believes they have a relationship with God but fails to guard his words then his heart is drifting away and his religion is shallow and empty

20/20 Vision – Seeing What God See’s
Sunday, January 19, 2020 – Pastor George M. Dupree
 
Isaiah 33:17 Your eyes will behold the king in his beauty; they will see a land that stretches afar.
 
It May Look Like I’m Surrounded But I’m Surrounded By You!
 
In the days when Jehoshaphat was king in Judah the people were living in peace, there was prosperity in the land, Jehoshaphat was a king who honored God and he taught the people do the same. There was a time when he was placing judges in the land to lead the people and he told them to honor the Lord in all they did.
2Chronicles 19:4 Jehoshaphat lived in Jerusalem, and he went out again among the people from Beersheba to the hill country of Ephraim and turned them back to the LORD, the God of their fathers. 5 He appointed judges in the land, in each of the fortified cities of Judah. 6 He told them, “Consider carefully what you do, because you are not judging for man but for the LORD, who is with you whenever you give a verdict. 7 Now let the fear of the LORD be upon you. Judge carefully, for with the LORD our God there is no injustice or partiality or bribery.”
 
That’s what leaders who love God do; they lead people to God. Leaders who love God lead people who have wandered from God back to Him. They speak the truth in love even if it’s not popular.
 
One day enemies gathered against Judah – notice that it says
 
AFTER THAT – after what? After the king made sure the people honored the Lord – the devil was now stirred up against Judah.
 
2Chronicles 20:1 It happened after this that the people of Moab with the people of Ammon, and others with them besides the Ammonites, came to battle against Jehoshaphat. 2 Then some came and told Jehoshaphat, saying, “A great multitude is coming against you from beyond the sea, from Syria; and they are in Hazazon Tamar” (which is En Gedi). 3 And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. 4 So Judah gathered together to ask help from the LORD; and from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD. 5 Then Jehoshaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the LORD, before the new court, 6 and said: “O LORD God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You? 7 Are You not our God, who drove out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel, and gave it to the descendants of Abraham Your friend forever? 8 And they dwell in it, and have built You a sanctuary in it for Your name, saying, 9 “If disaster comes upon us—sword, judgment, pestilence, or famine—we will stand before this temple and in Your presence (for Your name is in this temple), and cry out to You in our affliction, and You will hear and save.’ 10 And now, here are the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir—whom You would not let Israel invade when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them and did not destroy them— 11 here they are, rewarding us by coming to throw us out of Your possession which You have given us to inherit. 12 O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.” 13 Now all Judah, with their little ones, their wives, and their children, stood before the LORD. 14 Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, in the midst of the assembly. 15 And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the LORD to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 16 Tomorrow go down against them. They will surely come up by the Ascent of Ziz (GLISTENING), and you will find them at the end of the brook before the Wilderness of Jeruel (FOUNDED BY GOD). 17 You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you.” 18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem bowed before the LORD, worshiping the LORD. 19 Then the Levites of the children of the Kohathites and of the children of the Korahites stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with voices loud and high. 20 So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa (TRUMPET); and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” 21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying:
“Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.”
2Chronicles 20:22 (CEV) As soon as they began singing, the LORD confused the enemy camp, 23 so that the Ammonite and Moabite troops attacked and completely destroyed those from Edom. Then they turned against each other and fought until the entire camp was wiped out! 24 When Judah’s army reached the tower that overlooked the desert, they saw that every soldier in the enemy’s army was lying dead on the ground.
 
No matter what is happening remember that God is with us and He will fight for us. We need to believe Him and His Word. When we do we will be established and prosper. Like David said in Psalm 23 we will be so prosperous that our cup will overflow. Malachi said that God would pour out such a blessing that we wouldn’t have room enough to contain it!
 
God wants to give us things so we can give them away!

20/20 Vision – Seeing What God Sees
Sunday, January 5, 2020 – Pastors George & Joel Dupree
 
Isaiah 33:17 Your eyes will see the king in all his splendor, and you will see a land that stretches into the distance.
 
20/20 Vision is the hallmark for normal eyesight.
 
20/20 Vision – this is our Vision for the New Year and the New Decade beginning January 1, 2020, our 42nd Anniversary as the Church known as Living Water Church.
 
20/20 vision is the hallmark of NORMAL vision. When believers have NORMAL vision they see what God sees and they’re going to see the limitless opportunities for the purposes of advancing God’s Kingdom. It’s like a fulfillment of the prayers Jabez when he asked for enlarged territory.
 
 
1 Chronicles 4:10 “Jabez called upon the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my border, and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from harm so that it might not bring me pain!” And God granted what he asked.”
Hindsight is 2020 – that means that it’s easier to see something after it has happened. With that saying goes this one “learn from your mistakes” That staying can’t stand alone… We also have to learn from our successes.
 
In this new 20/20 series we’ll be looking at these things:
 
How do you see God – Always with us
Genesis 28:16 Surely the LORD is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it.
 
How do you see yourself – As a masterpiece
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago
 
How do you see the world – A world of opportunities
Ephesians 5:16 Make the most of every opportunity for doing good in these evil days
 
How do you see the Church – A place of God’s Glory & Power
Ephesians 3:21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
 

The Church We Want To Be:

 

1 – A Church that is vibrant and full of people

2 – A church that allows God into the church by opening the door to the heart of Him

3 – A Church that is just as alive and vocal in the community as we are in the sanctuary

4 – A Church that explodes with expectation and excitement for the WORD of God

5 – A Church that is growing because God is sending in people because we are inviting people.

6 – A Church where the youth and children’s ministries are exploding with growth. Where these ministries are no longer struggling but become a key factor in all that God is doing in this place.

7 – A Church full of people who love to be at church.

8 – A Church that develops leaders.

9 – A Church where leaders take responsibility and lead; they lead in order to fulfill the vision that God has given to the set man or Lead Pastor.

10 – A church that allows God into the church by opening the door to the heart of Him
 

11 – A Church that will guard and maintain unity, both in the leadership and the members. If a Church does this they will experience revival.

12 – A Church that puts the salvation of the lost front and center. 13 – A move of God will follow the desire to see people saved.

14 – A Church where families are growing stronger every single week.

15 – A Church that has to hire more staff members because of growth otherwise the staff won’t be able to keep up.

16 – A Church that has to make room for multiple weekend services because we are overflowing.

17 – A Church that has to build to accommodate the growth of our children’s and youth departments.

18 – A Church that worships from the heart

19 – A Church where teenagers are on fire for God and they play an integral part in our Church

20 – A Church that helps the poor within and outside of our community.

21 – A Church that raises up leaders outside of our community

22 – A Church that takes part in planting other Churches

23 – A healthy Church.

Re-Gifting Christmas
Sunday, December 29, 2019 – Pastor George M. Dupree
 
Re-Gifting – the act of giving a gift that someone gave you.
 
People do it; I’ve done it. Not to you!
 
So, is re-gifting OK?
 
Here is what etiquette experts have to say:
• Emily Post: The Emily Post Institute’s stance is that re-gifting is all right, but totally depends on context. They suggest that one should only re-gift if the item is brand new and in its original packaging, and if it will not create awkwardness with the sender or recipient. They emphasize that the gift must be something that the recipient actually wants.
 
• Jacqueline Whitmore: Ms. Whitmore, a business etiquette expert, gives the go-ahead for re-gifting, but reminds readers to “consider the taste” of the receiver and to destroy all evidence that the item is being re-gifted. She wisely suggests that if a gift is expired or really not desirable, just chuck it; don’t re-gift it.
 
Well, it’s just four days after Christmas so I’ll talk today about re-gifting, Christmas that is.
 
Because of Christmas we’ve gotten some wonderful gifts, the most important one is Jesus, God’s gift to everyone.
 
God gives us a GIFT; He gives us Jesus.
• 2 Corinthians 9:15 Thanks be to God for (Jesus) His indescribable gift!
 
Just as God is a giver, He wants us to be givers. The Apostle Paul said this –
• Acts 20:35 remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
 
God blesses us so we can bless others.
 
God gives us Hope – let’s re-gift that.
For someone stuck in a dark place the greatest comfort would be light. The light would bring hope.
• Isaiah 9:2 says – The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined. ​
 
Psalms 119:49 Remember your word to your servant,
in which you have made me hope. 50 This is my comfort in my affliction,
that your promise gives me life.
 
Because of God’s WORD or HIS PROMISES we can have HOPE & COMFORT. In uncertain times we’ll find confidence, comfort & hope from the Bible along with remembering what God has done in our life and the life of others we know. Revelation tells us we OVERCOME by the blood of the Lamb (the death of Jesus) the WORD (logos) (Jesus) of our testimony and that we love not our lives even unto death, that’s like saying “I’ll believe even if it kills me!
 
You could give hope to a child who has no food, that’d be a great re-gift.
God gives us Peace – let’s re-gift that.
 
Peace with God – God forgives us of our sins
• Romans 5:1 Now that we have been put right with God through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
Peace Within – We receive His forgiveness and know we are accepted by Him
• Philippians 4:6-7 Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel.
 
Peace with Others – We offer forgiveness and we are able to be healed and free.
• Ephesians 4:31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
 
You could share a testimony if God ever gave you peace; He did if you’re born again.
 
God gives us Joy – let’s re-gift that.
Luke 2:8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
 
We can tell people who are sad or discouraged that Sorrow doesn’t have to last forever
• Psalms 30:5 … weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
 
God gives us Love – let’s re-gift that.
God GIVES Us His Love
• John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
 
God DEMONTRATES His Love To Us
• Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
How has God ever demonstrated His love to you? You can re-gift it by telling your story or by sharing His Love with someone.
 
God’s Gift To You Is Not Only A Present For The Present – It’s A Present For Eternity!
 
Jesus didn’t come to give you religion, he came to give you a life – so unwrap the gift and enjoy all that Jesus came to bring to you.
 
If you have never received the gift from heaven do it today.
 
I pray that the LORD will bless and protect you, and that he will show you mercy and kindness. May the LORD be good to you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24 – 26
 
Now, may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in Hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ROMANS 15:13

Christmas Unwrapped – Uncovering the Meaning of Christmas
De-Stressing The Holidays
Sunday, December 8, 2019 – Pastor George M. Dupree
 
The Christmas Holiday Season can certainly be Joy-Filled and of course, they can be Stress-Filled too. Maybe you had to stretch a little bit even to just read this post but I encourage you to read on, it’ll take only a few minutes…Here are some steps to take for De-Stressing The Holidays
 
1 – LOOK UP
It’s easy to get distracted… So we have to focus on things above, not earthly things. When we focus on the things of God we can better deal with the things of this earth. Colossians 3:1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
 
2 – DRESS For The Holidays
During the holidays we can alleviate stress by reaching out to others. We can look around us and see that there are people who are in need. Not just in need of material things but also in need of compassion, kindness and patience Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience Isaiah 61:3 – (Put on) the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness
 
3 – FORGIVE Others
During the holidays there will be plenty of opportunities to forgive. From forgiving the person who takes your parking spot, to the rude cashier or the person who cuts you in a line to the more serious offenses of life. We have to forgive the friend or relative who has hurt us in the past. All of these things are opportunities for us to forgive, and forgive we must. Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
 
4 – LOVE Others
The key to it all is love. It always comes down to that one thing… love. It’s the thing that started it all with God sending His Son to us because He loved us. Jesus came to us with Compassion – Kindness – Humility – Gentleness – Patience
Jesus showed us the way to live. Love binds it all together. Love is the glue that can repair a broken life; it’s the glue that holds us together when our world is falling apart. Love Is The Key. Colossians 3:14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity
 
LOVE IS THE BEAUTIFUL RIBBON ON THE GIFT OF LIFE
 
These are the steps to De-Stress The Holidays – If we live by these instructions we will have the powerful peace of God Rule Our Hearts Colossians 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

I Chronicles 16:34NKJV

34 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!For His mercy endures forever.

A Season Of Thanks
Sunday, November 10, 2019 – Pastor George Dupree
 
1 Chronicles 16:34 – Give thanks to the Lord for He is Good. His love endures forever.
 
Today we’ll look at giving of thanks. Giving of thanks can be equated to having an attitude of gratitude. In aeronautics the attitude it’s the positioning of the aircraft’s axes in relation to the horizon. In other words the attitude of the plane is where the nose is pointing.
 
In life if your nose is always pointing down you won’t be able to tell where you’re going, you probably have a sad or sorrowful emotion about you. If your nose is up in the air you’re probably feeling a little better than everyone around you. Having an attitude of gratitude keeps you on a good plane. Not too low, not too high. The reason that you’re not too low is you consider your life in God’s Hands so you’re not worried or sad about your life. The reason that you’re not too high is because you consider everything that you have has originated from God so you’re pride isn’t a problem.
 
There are instructions in the Bible about giving thanks and there are also benefits of giving thanks – let’s take a look.
 
When You Think Of God Give Thanks
† Psalms 30:4 Sing praise to the LORD, you saints of His and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
 
It’s Good To Give Thanks
† Psalms 92:1 It is good to give thanks to the LORD, and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
 
Four Times In Psalms 107 It Says This
† Psalms 107:21 Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!
 
Jesus Gave Thanks
† Matthew 15:36 And He took the seven loaves and the fish and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitude.
 
In Everything Give Thanks
† 1Thessalonians 5:18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
 
Sometimes It’s A Sacrifice
† Hebrews 13:15 Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.
Benefits Of Giving Thanks – Entrance Into His Presence
† Psalms 100:1 Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands! 2 Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing 3 Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. 4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. 5 For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.
 
Double Enunciation
† Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
 
Unsurpassed Peace
† Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
 
Thank Him because you WANT to
† Leviticus 22:29 And when you offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD, offer it of your own free will.
