Review this week's message.

Key Thought:

Have you ever been in a situation you felt you would never be able to get out of?  Maybe it is an addiction, a debt, or depression.



Key Quote

“Fire yourself as your own critic and hire yourself as a head coach.” - Pastor Levi Lusko



Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.
  • What's your favorite summer activity?

  • What's your favorite way to keep cool during the summer?

  • If you could have an endless supply of any summer treat, what would it be?



Start thinking. Ask a thoughtful question.
  • What is the version of you that you need to declare war on?  What is holding you back from being the version of you that God intends you to be?
  • How many times has God given you a way out of your situation, but you have still not risen up to overcome the spiritual strongholds in your life?


Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.
  • You are in control of the thoughts in your mind, how can you be better about changing your thinking towards the things of God?
  • What are the words that come out of your mouth?  We are our own worst critics, how can you be better about being your own personal critic?  Are you only tearing yourself down or are you urging yourself on to be more like Christ?


Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.

Once you win the battle with yourself, others will be able to conquer their own battles.  Who is watching you and waiting for you to win the battle within your mind?


Scriptures

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ,"  2 Corinthians 10:3-5

“For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he…”  Proverbs 23:7

“Set your affection on things above, not on things on earth.”  Colossians 3:2

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”  Proverbs 18:21

“When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.”  Matthew 26:30
