Six Things That Will Change Your Life

by Dr. Jim Sheffield

  1. Surrender your life fully to God every day. Before your feet hit the floor each morning, say, "God, today I fully surrender my life to you today."
  2. Meditate in scripture every day. Challenge: Meditate in scripture every day for 30 days, then 60, then 90. A habit is established in 21 days.
  3. This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
    Joshua 1:8-9

  4. You need church and Bible study every week.
  5. Give 10% back to God.
  6. Do not be afraid to pray about anything. Pray according to God's will and do not be afraid to say, "God, move some mountains, please."
  7. Tell people about Christ every day.
Four principles about these six things:
  1. Do more than is required.
  2. Unless God is with you, do not go out the door.
  3. God's economy is not affected by man.
  4. Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
    James 1:2-4

  5. God cannot bless if our attitude is not right towards him.
