Law of Active Pursuit

image5

Luke 9:57-62

Put your hand to the plow...don’t look back. You will achieve that which you purpose.

Maintain Your Focus

Look to Jesus, the author of our faith  (Hebrews 12:1-3)

Make your purpose your priority  (2 Timothy 1:6-7)

Fight the good fight of faith  (1 Timothy 6:9-12)

Obtain the Reward  (2 Timothy 4:7-8)

Your life will follow your focus

God’s purpose for you won’t just happen without your cooperation. You are either going forward or you are going backward. There is no standing still.


“The kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing,” Jesus said in Matthew 11:12.

  • Forceful people are laying hold of it.
  • The kingdom is within us.


The kingdom of God suffers violence:

  • The enemy is seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).
  • Any sickness, disease or affliction is a violent attack against the kingdom.

Joyce Meyer Quotes on Growth

  • “God works according to the law of gradual growth, so don’t be discouraged if your progress seems slow.”
  • “We often say God is never late, but generally He isn’t early either. Why? Because He uses times of waiting to stretch our faith in Him and to bring about change and growth in our lives.”
  • “I’m just telling you, God permits things in our lives sometimes for reasons that we do not understand yet because of the spiritual level that we’re on. We can’t have any understanding of it, because we’re not at a place of spiritual growth yet where we understand the deeper things of God.”
  • “Growth requires facing where you’re at so you can go to the NEXT LEVEL”
