Sermon Notes/Nuggets

  • Among other things (because no one will know everything this year will entail), this is the year of the shift.
  • Shift (verb) = to move or cause to move from one place to another, especially over a small distance.
    • When God shifts something all He has to do is move it alittle bit; the result is always change.
    • A small distance means it has to happen in a short period of time.
    • When it takes place suddenly, we will have these “what just happened” moments.
  • Shift (noun) = a change in something or an adjustment in the way something is done.
  • God is not going to do for us what we can do for ourselves.
    • Sometimes the shift is dependent upon us stepping out on faith.
  • A “shift” also means a change in position, direction, or tendency.
  • God is going to use the shift to evangelize.
  • Daniel 2:21
    • Mindset change; activates faith in His Word.
    • The shift will take place on the inside of us.
