New Beginnings Church NOTES

He I am, Lord

This Is My Desire

Philippians 2:12-13  & John 1:35-39 

Philippians 2:12-13 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. 


Finish the sentence.

This is my desire to: 


Galatians 5:17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.


The good news is, Our God is still in the business of guiding our lives.

He is still interested enough in our lives to get involved and give us advice.

GOD’S VOICE CAN STILL BE HEARD.

And His voice gives us direction.


John 10:27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.


Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

Finish the sentence.

This is my desire to: 

I will give you an example.

This is my desire, to be used by you!


John 1:35-39 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples.  36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, "Behold the Lamb of God!"  37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.  38 Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, "What do you seek?" They said to Him, "Rabbi" (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), "where are You staying?"  39 He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day (now it was about the tenth hour). (NKJV)


I believe there are no dumb questions when it comes to asking God about something.

Because in our questions God can reveal who He is, and reveal things about ourselves, that we might not see any other way!


Two things happen when we ask questions:

1-We are spending time with God seeking answers to our questions

2-God reveals to us within our question, what we are truly seeking!


What do you seek?

What is the desire of your heart?


Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.


Philippians 2:12-13 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. 


Your desires and God’s desires for you go hand in hand.


Psalm 38:9  Lord, all my desire is before You;… (NKJV) Psalm 73:25  Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. (NKJV)

Psalm 145:19  He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them. (NKJV)

John 15:7  If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. (NKJV)


My Desire

It’s my desire to do something good every day.

It’s my desire to help someone who has fallen.

It’s my desire to help those who gone astray back into the flock.

It’s my desire to be like the Lord!

It’s my desire to bring someone to God.

It’s my desire to shelter someone from the cold.

It’s my desire to do thy will as I am told.

It’s my desire to be like my Lord!

It’s my desire to see His face in all that I do.

It’s my desire to hear Him say, “My child well done!”

It’s my desire to be like my Lord!


Can you say to the Lord, “Here I am”?

I desire to serve you.

This is my desire, to honor you, to worship you.

Lord, I give you my heart, I give you my soul, I live for you alone.

Every breathe that I take, every moment I’m awake,

Lord, have your way in me.

Jesus transforms lives from a lost existence through repentance and His forgiveness of sin.  

His grace and mercy from His gift of salvation is ready for anyone who is willing to trust in Him as personal Lord and Savior.  

He can, and will, transform you today.  Just ask, and you will receive.  Amen.

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.”(Acts 16:31)


God, I know that I am a sinner.  I believe that Jesus died on the cross in my place.  I believe His shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me.  I now receive Him into my life as my Savior.  I thank you for forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and everlasting life, because of your merciful grace, Amen
