2020 is the year of more. 
Revelation 22:17 (NIV) The Spirit and the bride say, "Come " And let the one who hears say, "Come " And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.

Isaiah 43:18-19(NIV)  Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. 

1 Kings 17:17-24 (NLT) 17 Some time later the woman’s son became sick. He grew worse and worse, and finally he died. 18 Then she said to Elijah, “O man of God, what have you done to me? Have you come here to point out my sins and kill my son?” 19 But Elijah replied, “Give me your son.” And he took the child’s body from her arms, carried him up the stairs to the room where he was staying, and laid the body on his bed. 20 Then Elijah cried out to the LORD, “O LORD my God, why have you brought tragedy to this widow who has opened her home to me, causing her son to die?” 21 And he stretched himself out over the child three times and cried out to the LORD, “O LORD my God, please let this child’s life return to him.” 22 The LORD heard Elijah’s prayer, and the life of the child returned, and he revived! 23 Then Elijah brought him down from the upper room and gave him to his mother. “Look!” he said. “Your son is alive!” 24 Then the woman told Elijah, “Now I know for sure that you are a man of God, and that the LORD truly speaks through you.” 

“Stop asking why a situation happened and start asking how a situation changes.”

  1. Consecration- Setting oneself apart
Comfort is the mother of complacency.
Stretch yourself
Luke 5:36-39(NLT) Jesus gave them this illustration: “No one tears a piece of cloth from a new garment and uses it to patch an old garment. For then the new garment would be ruined, and the new patch wouldn’t even match the old garment. “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the new wine would burst the wineskins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be stored in new wineskins. But no one who drinks the old wine seems to want the new wine. ‘The old is just fine,’ they say.”

More of him will cost more of you.
John 3:30 “He must become greater; I must become less.”
The better you is the lesser you.

2. Concentration- An intense focus
Elijah Prayed 3
 Times.

Luke 11:9-10 (NIV) 9 "So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

3. Commitment- stick to it.
Incremental changes are instrumental in transformation.
Make those changes and stick with them.

The new thing is not a modification it’s a transformation!
Transformation is a process.

Get in there & STAY IN THERE!
Galatians 6:9(NIV) So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
