Snap Out of It

Listen to the Message
 
Jeremiah 15:14-21
 
There are some things that you can snap out of. 
 
It may not be easy, but you can do it. 
 
“You’re wallowing around in a bad place, and you need to snap out of it.”
 
1. Repent where you need to repent. 
  • It’s not easy owning up to your mistakes, but it’s necessary. 
  • I want you to know this is not what God wants. 
  • Repentance is all about restoration. 
  • “Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.” Psalm‬ ‭71:20‬ ‭NIV‬‬
2. Speak according to your faith, not according to your feelings. 
  • Speak words of value. 
  • God wants you and me to speak the empowering truth, based on faith in His promise. 
  • God wants us to speak not merely the truth, but the empowering truth. 
  • The empowering truth is that God can turn this mess into a masterpiece. 
  • The empowering truth is that God can restore you and He can redeem any situation because His grace is greater than our sin. 
  • Ephesians 4:29
  • The situation is dire and God has the power to turn things around. 
3. Seek to be an influence for others, rather than being influenced by others. 
  • People often make the mistake of listening to the wrong voice, and let themselves be influenced in a negative way. 
  • You have to take responsibility. 
  • You have to take responsibility for doing your part to create change. 
  • Do I influence others more than they influence me?
  • I will not be influenced by a culture that does not value Christ.
