Stones are a picture of people. Once a stone was burnt and crumbled, it was easy to pull it out of position. If you've been burnt, it's easy to be removed from of the wall of destiny, where God has positioned you to grow. When we walk through a difficult season in our life, it's what the Bible calls a 'fiery trial'. At stake is your destiny, what's being tested is the quality of your faith in God.

If we don't relentlessly deal with the Blame Game, then we think we're trying to move in faith, but we're actually continuing old patterns of unbelief and irresponsibility. The Blame Game started in Genesis, when God talked to Adam & Eve about eating the fruit of the tree. When they started blaming, God stopped talking - they experienced the consequences of their decision.

Victim mentality is a way of viewing yourself, and a way of viewing life, that causes you continually to fail in relationships and life. The person will not take responsibility. Instead they choose to make excuses for why life is like it is, and to find someone or something to blame. When you blame someone, you leave yourself powerless, and resentful at how life sucks.

Then the blast of the trumpet sounded long, and came louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him by voice. Now that's the first Pentecost. It's about engaging in intimacy with God.

One of the most painful experiences in life is where you're ‘unloved’; people react against you, speak against you; or there's physical /emotional violence. You experience a deep sense of ‘lack of value’; that I ‘don't belong’; or I'm ‘not valuable’ to anyone. You come to the conclusion in your heart that: I'm unlovable.

Most of us would have had an experience where you really need God to give something to direct you but nothing happened. You sought the Lord, you prayed, read your Bible and nothing seemed to happen.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Words have the power to change lives. You can empower people through words you speak, or cut them down. You can cause them to live, or to wither and die. Don't let your mouth be full of negative talk, but rather practice and make it a habit, a lifestyle of speaking words that build. Words are containers – they carry a ‘spirit’ content.
