Thriving in Crisis

When a crisis hits, it can be difficult to navigate through life.

Our willpower alone isn’t enough to thrive—we need a plan. In this week’s message, we take a look at Genesis 1:26-28 to unpack the secret to thriving in life, the kingdom way.

Check out the full message, Thriving in Crisis, as Pastor Josh concludes his message series, Secrets of God’s Economy.

Message Notes

Proverbs 13:7 (NIV)
One person pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.

Mark 4:11 (NIV)
He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables

Genesis 1:26-28 (NKJV)
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth.

Where there is a will there is a way.

Where there is a way there is a will.

Genesis 1:26-28 (NKJV)
over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Genesis 1:26-28 (NKJV)
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Secret #6 - Seedfulness precedes Fruitfulness

  1. Everyone possesses a seed.
  2. Your seed is your purpose and passion.
  3. Your seed determines your natural talents
  4. Your seed contains your future.
  5. Your seed is the idea(s) that won’t go away.

2 Corinthians 9:10 (NLT)
For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.

Secret #7 - God doesn’t give bread; He gives the ingredients necessary for you to make the bread.

A Spirit that Thrives
1. You were born to solve a problem
2. You are God’s response to a need he created on earth
3. You are the answer to A question God knew would be asked in your generation
4. You are the fulfillment of one of God’s desires
5. You are an assignment your generation needs to experience

Secret #8 - If you want success, don't seek success. Seek the Kingdom of God.

Matthew 6:31-33 (NIV)
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
