Life Change – DAY 6

And evening passed and morning came, MARKING the sixth day. Genesis 1:31 On the final and the pinnacle day of all creation God creates mankind.  There is no doubt this was His greatest day.  He makes that clear right throughout the Bible.  God set a MARKER on day 6 you and I should take very good notice of. Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.” Genesis 1:26 DAY 6. RULERSHIP. Man was made in God's image to rule and govern over everything He had created. Its a land mark to recognise you were made like God to do His work of ruling and governing. What does that look like? You understand that

Life Change – DAY 5

And evening passed and morning came, MARKING the fifth day. Genesis 1:23 On the penultimate day of creation, day 5 in Genesis 1, we notice another life changing ‘MARKER’ that we could set in our own lives in 2013. Then God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply. Let the fish fill the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth.” Genesis 1:22 DAY 5.  On day 3 we looked at being fruitful. On day 5 we take this one step further. Its a landmark moment when what you do is fruitful.  For some people when they touch money it grows; for others when they teach, others 'just get it'; for others when they administrate life quickly has order to it.  This is fruitfulness.  However, what about multiplying this fruitfulness. To multiply your fruitfulness you have to put something in plac

Life Change – DAY 4

And evening passed and morning came, MARKING the fourth day. Genesis 1:19 It's day 4 already of a 6 day look at the life changing ‘MARKERS’ set down in Genesis 1 that have meaning for our own lives in 2013. God set these lights in the sky to light the earth, to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:17,18 DAY 4. If day 1 is about getting free, then day 4 is about living free.  On day 1 light and dark were separated.  On day 4 God placed something in the world that would maintain the separation of light and dark - the light of the sun and of the moon. Finding freedom from something destructive is clearly a landmark.  However, staying free and saying no to destructive temptation is equally a landmark moment in our lives.  We have been given pow

Life Change – DAY 3

And evening passed and morning came, MARKING the third day. Genesis 1:13 Just as a reminder - this is day 3 of a 6 day look at the life changing 'MARKERS' set down in Genesis 1 and what they can mean for us in creating landmarks in our own lives in 2013. The land produced vegetation—all sorts of seed-bearing plants, and trees with seed-bearing fruit. Genesis 1:12 DAY 3 :  On the third day God set the scene for fruitfulness.  He created land and plants that were seed-bearing, ie. the ability to be fruitful perpetually. There is nothing more frustrating than feeling unfruitful.  You work hard and see nothing for it.  It is important we give our attention where we will be most successful.  Fruitfulness comes from concentrating on your gift, connecting to the right people, regular adjust

Life Change – DAY 2

And evening passed and morning came, MARKING the second day. Genesis 1:8 Just as a reminder - this is day 2 of a 6 day look at the life changing 'MARKERS' set down in Genesis 1 and what they can mean for us in creating landmarks in our own lives in 2013. Then God said, “Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth.” Genesis 1:6 DAY 2 :  Before the separation of waters and creation of sky, there was no real perspective of what was up or what was down, what was around and what was above.  Perspective came to earth when this separation took place.  There was now earth and there was sky.  We are here at that is over there - 'perspective'. Taking a moment to get perspective on a situation creates a marker in your world.  Stop,
