Reputation Rehab

Hi again, everyone! This week’s church notes are the first ones following the “Triggered” series.

Worship began with Elevation Worship’s “God of the Promise“, followed by a new and unreleased song from Elevation Worship, “Living Color”, a baptism, Hillsong Worship’s “Who You Say I Am“, Elevation’s “Mighty God“, and a spontaneous rendition of the hymn “How Great Thou Art”.

My notes read:

  • Joshua 2:1-11
  • God is going to use everything about your life for His purpose.  Even your worst can be used to show off God’s best.
  • You have as many reputations as you have relationships.
  • Why would we fear what’s in front of us when we have a history of God’s faithfulness behind us?
  • If you’re going to do something great for God, don’t go around looking for validation in people.
  • God’s faithfulness is greater than my bondage; God used Rahab while she was still a prostitute.
  • Sometimes our enemy knows more about our God’s reputation than we do.
  • God used someone who was technically their enemy to tell them of their destiny.
  • Maybe the attack was an announcement that God has you on the edge of your promise.
  • Don’t let your circumstances alter God’s reputation.
  • In order to get to Jesus you have to go through Rahab.
  • God doesn’t bring you to deep waters to drown you but because He knows your enemies can’t swim.
  • God doesn’t use people who have a reputation with people; He uses people who have a reputation with Him.
  • It is not your reputation with others that matters the most; it’s your reputation with you–how you see yourself–that matters.
  • Sometimes the people around you can see God’s hand on you when you can’t even feel it.
  • God’s people were running from something that was already defeated because of how they saw themselves.
  • Numbers 13:33

We ended with singing “Who You Say I Am” again.
