Tolerance for Failure

Tolerance for failure is a very specific part of of excellent company’s culture and that lesson comes directly from the top.

Champions have to make lots of tries and consequently experience failures or the company will never learn.

Tony Evans Week 3 Kingdom Man

God chooses to do most of what he does because of decisions we make.

There is no man that has net his destiny without wandering through the wilderness.

When you’re a kingdom man, there is an inheritance to be claimed because there is a destiny to be fulfilled.

You can’t go to tomorrow until yesterday dies.

Could it be that I’m not seeing god move me into my destiny because I refuse to move my feet?

What is god asking me to do that doesn’t make sense? What have I written off to kit being gods voice because it doesn’t make sense or sounds out of character for god?

When god asks you to move and it didn’t make sense he does it for one reason: he wants to feel my faith.

“God does not know how something feels until e experiences it.” NOW I know that you fear me because you we’re willing…

Joshua 1

“7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

Don’t let the size of the problem stop you from accepting and stepping into gods promise. As a kingdom man, never allow people to have the final say in your life. We make people the king.

1 Sam 17. In life we will run into big people. Big things. Don’t look at thee size. Look at their covering (covenant).

Kingdom men first ask “what does god say about this matter?” If you stay tethered to gods word you will have GREAT success.

What do you do about the messes you’ve found yourself in?

Tread where the word of god gives you permission to tread.

Kingdom Man by Tony Evans Week 2

God gave Adam a house. He told him to both garden it and guard it… Even before he knew he had an enemy.

God created a lesser creature… Man… So that he could show what god can do with less that is committed to him than what he can do with a greater being in rebellion to him.

If you are a Christian, you have been chosen bit only to be saved in heaven but to be great in history.

Referees aren’t just ordinary men. They may be smaller, slower, and older, but they have authority. The players may have power but the refs have authority.

God doesn’t want me to become great the same way the world makes people great. God didn’t say we should despise greatness but rather we should follow his path to it.

Everything god calls men to is more than they think they can achieve.

“HOW SMALL ARE YOU THINKING?”

Moses was the meekest man that ever lived yet God made him like a god to pharaoh.

He process of breaking a horse is to ride it until it gets the point. When a horse gets broken, it doesn’t lose it’s power or strength… It’s just had its will adjusted.

God won’t allow something in his stable to be independent of him. He will make us week so that he can make us great.

The biggest Christian man is the one who has gone low before god. Like an offensive lineman.

Greatness is when you achieve the reason for living…

Story of Shamgar in Judges. A farmer listens to god and becomes great. Killed 600 men w a stick.

The devil is ok w us calling god god but he wants to remove the “lord.”

A great part of being a man is naming. We name what god gives us. We bring reality to things as to what they are to be.

Take the red pill. “Welcome to the real world.”

Kingdom Man by Tony Evans Week 1

The guys at our church are doing a little study with Tony Evans. I’m lot one for filling in a workbook that will just go on a shelf so my notes go here.

The cry for kingdom men is coming from the culture, from men themselves, and from Almighty God.

“Stand in the gap.”

A kingdom man not only believes in god but also has learns to love his life under the lordship of Jesus Christ.

you are not a kingdom man unless god is telling you what to do.

Isa 34:23-24 men meet w god 3x a year. Get their marching orders. Things will be better when you get home because you’ve met w god. We ate sent home as representatives of god.

Chaos comes when god is not allowed to be god in the life of a man.

A woman is a mirror to let a man know what his submission to god looks like.

The goal of a kingdom man is to implement the rule of god, not make rules of his own. When god can get men to leave their normal activities things will happen that they’ve never imagined.

We need to remind ourselves, this is not our house. We were placed here to manage it, but it is now our own.

God calls is to be men of the kingdom, submitting out rule to his rule. This is where freedom lies.

Kingdom men represent in time God’s ___ from eternity.
