    -2021 has to pay for 2020.

    - We need to stop tying the will of God to our earthly calendar.

    - A new year brings people looking for new things.

    - Sometimes we don't need something new,  we simply need to throw our nets back in again.

    - Reset is getting back in position, based on God's instructions.

    - If it is not done with God's instruction it has no power.

    - The difference in making a change is doing it with God's instruction.

    - God has no obligation to back up something He has not promised.

    - Power does not come from the calendar, it comes from God.

    - The reset is available if we avail ourselves.

    - We have a specified place that God wants us to be.

    - Our specified place is following God.

    - Praise took a hit in 2020. Worship took a hit too. But they are a part of our specified place.

    - Perseverance does not mean to keep doing things in our own strength.

    - Nevertheless Master, key words to being reset.

    - A divine reset is not a new year's message, not just for 2020, or just for 2021, this is an eternal one.

    - Everything coming in our life was not caused by 2020.  We have been out of position for a long time.

    - It's advantageous that the Spirit comes.  The Word of God is a separator.

    - We never just want to be separated from something (separated from the world), we want to be separated to something.  Separated to the peace, joy, triumph of God.

    - God will tell us of things to come so that we can intercede.

    - Once Abraham was told of things to come, he interceded.

    - God does not tell some of things to come because they don't know what to do. Or they will use it the wrong way.  God wants to share His plans with us.

    - We are in a better position than Abraham.  We have better promises.

    - If we don't press into the advantage, we are going to miss out on what God is doing or what is to come.

    - God says if we want to know God's will concerning our life, ask Him.

    - Only God declares the end from the beginning,

    - God will speak to you anywhere, anytime. But how much He speaks is up to us. We have to allow Him access.

    Overcomer
    Series: General

    2 Chronicles 20:12-17; 1 Corinthians 2:11; John 5:1,4-5

    - In spite of where we are, in spite of our circumstances, we are overcomers!

    - God always has a word for us - in the midst of it.

    - God is not going to talk to you in the sunshine and not in the rain.

    - The first word God has for us, is be not afraid, be not dismayed in the face of your problem.

    - It doesn't matter if everybody does it, it matters if Jesus does it.

    - It's a natural response to get into our feelings, but it's not good.

    - We cannot know the things of God unless the spirit of God teaches us.

    - Our first response to problems should not be emotional.

    - God gave us our emotions, but He expects us to use them responsibly.

    - A person who does not have self-control is like a city without walls, vulnerable to attack.

    - God will not lead us out of our trouble through our emotions.

    - The second thing God expects us to do is show up.

    - We don't have to fight but we have to show up. If we don't show up, we will lose.

    - Set, stand and see.

    1. Get into position, the place you are supposed to be. And stay there. Don't move until God tells you.
    2. Stand still. Continue abounding in the work. We are active participants in our deliverance.
    3. See God's deliverance with you.

    - If we believe that Jesus is the Son of God than we are overcomers - we overcome the world.
