THE ONE THIRD PHENOMENON
Jeremiah 33:3 ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
Historians have studied the phenomenon of the third generation. Last year I read the entire Bible Every 90 days. The pattern that I began to notice was a cycle of 1. closeness with God. 2. Slipping into dangerous habits. 3. falling into sin 4. crying out to God for deliverance. Complacency seems to creep into seasons of prosperity and success. The historians noted that by the third generation, the good times seemed to send a message to folks that God wasn't needed for success. You are one third of the way through a successful journey to hear from God. Be still, be patient, be focused and stay in His Word and pray - DON'T LET UP! COMPLACENCY IS A DANGER SIGN!
You might have heard from God by now or maybe you're still waiting. How will He speak? He might use dreams, visions, other people, circumstances, prayer, and He can speak through the Bible. Keep a journal and make sure you devote some solid alone time seeking Him.
DAY SEVEN WORD
Then I said, "Here am I. Send me!" Isaiah 6:8
"But I heard the sound of his words; and as soon as I heard the sound of his words,
I fell into a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground." Daniel 10:9
"He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain." 2 Peter 1:17-18

- Have you ever read the entire Bible in a year or several times in a year?
- Do you have a systematic reading plan for staying on track in your Bible reading?
- Do you have a dream journal?
- Write down your questions that you have for God and keep track of His answers.
- What is your plan to guard against complacency?
