Growing from this Place Subject: Making adjustments to win

In this week’s edition of Growing from this Place Bible Study, Pastor Jonathan McKnight looks into the concept of having to make necessary adjustments in order to win through difficult situations that occur our lives. He prefaces the study with posing several questions that potentially surface whenever we’re faced with circumstances that causes to either adjust to win or fold under the pressure. Here are the key points of this week’s study:

  • How do I grow when a season is changing while I’m trying to adjust?
  • How can I be solid or planted when I don’t even know which direction I’m going in?
  • How do I handle people in relationships when they change in a season?
  • Is this season a process or a penalty?
  • Is your harvest actually hidden from you in the reality of change?
  • What is the reason for this season?
  • Why won’t God tell you what’s really going on?
  • How do you identify who you can trust in a season of change?
  • You cannot miss another God moment; another God move or another God season.
  • You must accept and flow with what God allows regardless of the circumstances.
  • Adversity is always a part of a divine season.

  • When God wants to do something awesome in our lives, He have to get us out of the normality of our comfort zones and have to make us adjust in the realm of faith.
  • If you going to win, you going to have to trust God to make the adjustments in your life.
