Whatever does not happen in the Church today will be done by the rising generation.
There are two categories of taking over
1.Taking over from men who God used
2.Taking over from where God stopped.
- Study the lives of the people who have gone ahead of you
- Have an intimate relationship with the Holy spirit.
TAKING OVER YOUR SEASON, Genesis 4:1-2,8:18 -22 by Pastor Luckson Ngozo.
A season is a time attached with activity, when a season comes, maximize it.
How to take over in your season:
1.Build a relationship with God
- Determine you are a true believer
- Worship the Lord with the right heart
- Be careful not to separate your work from your worship
- Our work must always lead us to God in worship
- Connect your relationship with people to your relationship with God.
- Mathew 25:21-26 -Whatever you have been taught teach others. - 2 Timothy 2:2
2. Come to a place of acknowledging the law of first things. When you acknowledge the law of first things God prioritizes your life, for instance, seek God first, Mathew 6:33.
