My Best is Not Good Enough | Pastor Chuck Salvo | On Fire Christian Church

My Best is Not Good Enough

  1. This past week the Word of the Lord was “I Can’t do it”. When we come to that revelation then and only then can Gods power work through us to accomplish the work of God
    1. Then there must be another realization. “My Best is not Good Enough”.
    2. Example: Gravity-On Earth, gravity gives weight to physical objects,
    3. My best intention would not be successful if I tried to for example to jump 15 feet off the ground.
  1. “My best is not good enough!”
  2. Freedom and deliverance come to us when we realize I can’t do it and secondly that even our very best is not good enough
    1. “No one is righteous— not even one.“Romans‬ ‭3‬:‭10‬ ‭NLT‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
    2. ”But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags;Isaiah‬ ‭64‬:‭6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
  1. The law! Moral perfection in which no one is able to fully surrender to.
    1. Only one-Jesus
    2. Galatians 3:19-24.
    3. ”Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.“ Galatians‬ ‭3‬:‭24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
      1. The law is our teacher! Teaching us that first we can’t do it and our best is not good enough
  1. Bottom line-We need the Holy Ghost
    1. It should be such a freedom that comes to us when we understand we can’t do it and our best still isn’t good enough but through Christ it will come to pass
    2. Zech 4:8. Not by might
    3. ”No king is saved by the multitude of an army; A mighty man is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a vain hope for safety; Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.“Psalms‬ ‭33‬:‭16‬-‭19‬‬‬‬
    4. We may think one day that all these people are coming because of a specific program. Or a specific book we read, or they’re coming because of great kids ministry ‭‬‬‬‬‬
  1. 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 God has revealed the future to His saints
    1. His Spirit in you in your secured victory.
    2. Prophecy is speaking Gods covenant into the earth where you are in agreement with the Holy Ghost
    3. ”This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck,“ I Timothy‬ ‭1‬:‭18‬-‭19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
    4. Ez37 Ezekiel sees a valley of dry bones
    5. Prophecy to the wind
    6. 1259 revival bible
  1. The enemy will fight to kill a prophecy

    2. The promise of Gen 3:15 was to come thru Abel so Cain killed him
    3. Future spoken to Joseph so brothers sold him to slavery
    4. Joseph prophecies of his future and said to take his bones from that place. Exodus 13:19. The enemy enslaved the people and tries to kill Moses. Exodus 1:7
    5. Jesus born and Herod tries to have him killed
  1. Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord
    1. I can not do it
    2. My best is not good enough
    3. Trust in Christ and He bridges the divide
    4. It’s gonna be ok because I trust in God!
