This One Thing I Do!

  1. 1. This One Thing I Do! Francis Madojemu
  2. 2. Phillipians 3:13-14 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. (NIV)
  3. 3. The One Thing! A Goal that makes all the difference. Failure to achieve this goal renders all other achievements inconsequential!!!
  4. 4. The One Thing! If I did would change my life for example, I need More Money Yoruba: "Money is the bicycle of the gospel"
  5. 5. No matter what we do we will go back to God as the true starting point
  6. 6. Praying about Money? But to pray about this issue of money we need precedence and scripture that covers our case
  7. 7. Isaiah 43:26 (KJV) Put me in remembrance:let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.
  8. 8. Show Legal Precedence God is Saying... Like a lawyer before a judge or jury, declare your rights and show precedence that these are your rights and privileges by law.
  9. 9. Jacob & Laban
  10. 10. Genesis 30:25-43 (NKJV) 25 And it came to pass, when Rachel had borne Joseph, that Jacob said to Laban, “Send me away, that I may go to my own place and to my country. 26 Give me my wives and my children for whom I have served you, and let me go; for you know my service which I have done for you.”
  11. 11. Genesis 30:25-43 (NKJV) 27 And Laban said to him, “Please stay, if I have found favor in your eyes, for I have learned by experience that the Lord has blessed me for your sake.” 28 Then he said, “Name me your wages, and I will give it.”
  12. 12. Genesis 30:25-43 (NKJV) 29 So Jacob said to him, “You know how I have served you and how your livestock has been with me. 30 For what you had before I came was little, and it has increased to a great amount; the Lord has blessed you since my coming. And now, when shall I also provide for my own house?”
  13. 13. Genesis 30:25-43 (NKJV) 31 So he said, “What shall I give you?” And Jacob said, “You shall not give me anything. If you will do this thing for me, I will again feed and keep your flocks:32 Let me pass through all your flock today, removing from there all the speckled and spotted sheep, and all the brown ones among the lambs, and the spotted and speckled among the goats; and these shall be my wages.
  14. 14. Genesis 30:25-43 (NKJV) 33 So my righteousness will answer for me in time to come, when the subject of my wages comes before you:every one that is not speckled and spotted among the goats, and brown among the lambs, will be considered stolen, if it is with me.” 34 And Laban said, “Oh, that it were according to your word!”
  15. 15. Genesis 30:25-43 (NKJV) 35 So he removed that day the male goats that were speckled and spotted, all the female goats that were speckled and spotted, every one that had some white in it, and all the brown ones among the lambs, and gave them into the hand of his sons. (Laban tries to cheat him again) 36 Then he put three days’ journey between himself and Jacob, and Jacob fed the rest of Laban's flocks.
  16. 16. Genesis 30:25-43 (NKJV) 37 Now Jacob took for himself rods of green poplar and of the almond and chestnut trees, peeled white strips in them, and exposed the white which was in the rods. 38 And the rods which he had peeled, he set before the flocks in the gutters, in the watering troughs where the flocks came to drink, so that they should conceive when they came to drink.
  17. 17. Genesis 30:25-43 (NKJV) 39 So the flocks conceived before the rods, and the flocks brought forth streaked, speckled, and spotted. 40 Then Jacob separated the lambs, and made the flocks face toward the streaked and all the brown in the flock of Laban; but he put his own flocks by themselves and did not put them with Laban's flock.
  18. 18. Genesis 30:25-43 (NKJV) 41 And it came to pass, whenever the stronger livestock conceived, that Jacob placed the rods before the eyes of the livestock in the gutters, that they might conceive among the rods. 42 But when the flocks were feeble, he did not put them in; so the feebler were Laban's and the stronger Jacob's.
  19. 19. Genesis 30:25-43 (NKJV) 43 Thus the man became exceedingly prosperous, and had large flocks, female and male servants, and camels and donkeys
  20. 20. The Secret ......But the truth is hidden in this story
  21. 21. Genesis 31:1-21 (NKJV) Jacob Flees from Laban 1 Now Jacob heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, “Jacob has taken away all that was our father's, and from what was our father's he has acquired all this wealth.”
  22. 22. Genesis 30:25-43 (NKJV) 4 So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field, to his flock, 5 and said to them, “I see your father's countenance, that it is not favorable toward me as before; but the God of my father has been with me. 6 And you know that with all my might I have served your father
  23. 23. Genesis 31:1-21 (NKJV) 7 Yet your father has deceived me and changed my wages ten times, but God did not allow him to hurt me. ( he claims this blessing and protection came from God) 8 If he said thus:‘The speckled shall be your wages,’ then all the flocks bore speckled. And if he said thus:‘The streaked shall be your wages,’ then all the flocks bore streaked.
  24. 24. Genesis 31:1-21 (NKJV) 9 So God has taken away the livestock of your father and given them to me. 10 “And it happened, at the time when the flocks conceived, that I lifted my eyes and saw in a dream, and behold, the rams which leaped upon the flocks were streaked, speckled, and grayspotted.
  25. 25. Our Situation & Circumstances (Direction from God in spite of a criminal situation or country or people) ( the how has to come from God)
  26. 26. Genesis 31:25-43 (NKJV) 11 Then the Angel of God spoke to me in a dream, saying, ‘Jacob. ’ And I said, ‘Here I am. ’ 12 And He said, ‘Lift your eyes now and see, all the rams which leap on the flocks are streaked, speckled, and gray- spotted; for I have seen all that Laban is doing to you.
  27. 27. Genesis 31:25-43 (NKJV) 15 Are we not considered strangers by him? For he has sold us, and also completely consumed our money. 16 For all these riches which God has taken from our father are really ours and our children's; now then, whatever God has said to you, do it.”
  28. 28. Genesis 31:25-43 (NKJV) 36 Then Jacob was angry and rebuked Laban, and Jacob answered and said to Laban:“What is my trespass? What is my sin, that you have so hotly pursued me? 37 Although you have searched all my things, what part of your household things have you found? Set it here before my brethren and your brethren, that they may judge between us both!
  29. 29. Genesis 31:25-43 (NKJV) 38 These twenty years I have been with you; your ewes and your female goats have not miscarried their young, and I have not eaten the rams of your flock. 39 That which was torn by beasts I did not bring to you; I bore the loss of it. You required it from my hand, whether stolen by day or stolen by night.
  30. 30. Genesis 31:25-43 (NKJV) 40 There I was! In the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night, and my sleep departed from my eyes. 41 Thus I have been in your house twenty years; I served you fourteen years for your two daughters, and six years for your flock, and you have changed my wages ten times.
  31. 31. Genesis 31:25-43 (NKJV) 42 Unless the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely now you would have sent me away empty- handed. God has seen my affliction and the labor of my hands, and rebuked you last night.
  32. 32. God of Process Even though God is the source there is a process. The angel taught him a process Be fruitful & I will make you fruitful (Make Money a command then I will make you make money) A command and a process
