    1 Corinthians 9:24 Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So
    run to win! (NLT)

    Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not
    with you (NKJV)

    (NIV)

    4 Strategies To Thinking Like A Winner

    1. You must identify unhealthy thought patterns

    1. Doubting thoughts
    James 1:6-8 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a
    wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  7  That person should not expect to receive anything from
    the Lord.  8  Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. (NIV)

    2. Anxious and worried thoughts
    Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with
    thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (NIV)

    3. Critical thoughts
    Matthew 9:3-4 At this, some of the teachers of the law said to themselves, “This fellow is
    blaspheming!” 4  Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, “Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your
    hearts? (NIV)

    4. Sinful thoughts
    Romans 8:6 So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control
    your mind leads to life and peace. (NLT)
    5. Selfish thoughts
    James 3:16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil
    practice. (NIV)

    2. Capture unhealthy thoughts

    2 Corinthians 10:5   We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge
    of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (NIV)

    3. Renew unhealthy thoughts

    Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your
    mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect
    will. (NIV)

    4. Set your thinking on healthy thoughts

    Romans 8:5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but
    those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. (NIV)

    Colossians 3:2   Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. (NIV)

    Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right,
    whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or
    praiseworthy—think about such things. (NIV)

    Run To Win | Herbert Cooper - Audio

    1 Corinthians 9:24   Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to
    win! (NLT)

    Judges 6:1-5 The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and for seven years he gave them into the hands
    of the Midianites.  2  Because the power of Midian was so oppressive, the Israelites prepared shelters for
    themselves in mountain clefts, caves and strongholds.  3  Whenever the Israelites planted their crops, the
    Midianites, Amalekites and other eastern peoples invaded the country.  4  They camped on the land and ruined
    the crops all the way to Gaza and did not spare a living thing for Israel, neither sheep nor cattle nor
    donkeys.  5  They came up with their livestock and their tents like swarms of locusts. It was impossible to
    count them or their camels; they invaded the land to ravage it. (NIV)

    Judges 6:12-13   When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty
    warrior.” 13  “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to
    us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up
    out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.” (NIV)

    Judges 6:14-15 The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of
    Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?” 15  “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but how can I save Israel?
    My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.” (NIV)

    4 Ways To Winning in 2022

    1. Winning in 2022 requires crying out to God

    Judges 6:6-7   Midian so impoverished the Israelites that they cried out to the LORD for help. When the
    Israelites cried out to the Lord because of Midian, (NIV)

    2. Winning in 2022 requires a commitment to God’s Word

    Judges 6:10 I said to you, ‘I am the Lord your God; do not worship the gods of the Amorites, in whose
    land you live.’ But you have not listened to me.” (NIV)

    Judges 6:1 The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and for seven years he gave them into the hands
    of the Midianites. (NIV)

    James 1:22–25   Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23  Anyone
    who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror
    24  and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25  But whoever
    looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they
    have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do. (NIV)

    3. Winning in 2022 requires believing what God says about you

    Judges 6:12 When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty
    warrior.” (NIV)

    Judges 6:15 “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in
    Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.” (NIV)

    The following list is not for YouVersion. It is for lower thirds only, split into several slides.
    I am a mighty warrior.
    I am more than a conqueror.
    I am new creation.
    I am Child of God.
    I can do all things through Christ.
    I am a friend of God.
    I am Justified.
    I am Redeemed.
    I am sealed with the Holy Spirit.

    I am Made alive in Christ.
    I am God’s workmanship.
    I am a citizen of heaven.
    I am a person of purpose.
    I am anointed.
    I am powerful.
    I am the salt of the earth.
    I am a world changer.
    I am successful.
    I am a WINNER!

    4. Winning in 2022 requires you to go

    Judges 6:14 The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s
    hand. Am I not sending you?” (NIV)

    1 Corinthians 9:24   Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So
    run to win! (NLT)

    Breakthrough In 2022 | Joseph Kellogg - Audio

    Breakthrough In 2022 | Joseph Kellogg - Audio

    THIS IS THE YEAR FOR BREAKTHROUGH!

    Matthew 6:25-34 NIV 25  “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will
    eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the
    body more than clothes? 26  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store
    away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more
    valuable than they?  27  Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life [a] ?
    28  “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do
    not labor or spin. 29  Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of
    these.  30  If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and
    tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little
    faith?  31  So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What
    shall we wear?’ 32  For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father
    knows that you need them.  33  But SEEK FIRST his kingdom and his righteousness,
    and all these things will be given to you as well.  34  Therefore do not worry about
    tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

    SEEK FIRST

    “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need
    and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4:6 NLT

    1. PRAY BOLD PRAYERS.

    You are one bold prayer away from a breakthrough.

    Bold prayers honor God, and God honors bold prayers.

    Mark 9:22-23 NLT “Have mercy on us and help us, if you can. What do you mean if I
    can? Jesus asked, “Anything is possible if a person believe.”

    2. PRAY SPECIFIC PRAYERS.

    Mark 10:51-52 NLT “What do you want me to do for you? Jesus ask, “My Rabbi,” the
    blind man said, “I want to see.” And Jesus said to him, “Go, for your faith has healed
    you.” Instantly the man could see, and he followed Jesus down the road.”

    Matthew 7:9-11 NLT “You parents – if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give
    them a stone instead? Of if you ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not!
    So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will
    your heavenly father give good gifts to those who ask him.”

    The greatest tragedy in life is the prayers that go unanswered because they go
    unasked.

    3. PRAY PERSISTENT PRAYERS.

    Matthew 7:7-8 NLT “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on
    seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For
    everyone who ask, receives, everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks,
    the door will be open.”

    UNTIL YOU GET AN ANSWER, KEEP CIRCLING IT IN PRAYER.

    4. PRAY CONSISTENT PRAYERS.

    Mark 1:35 NLT “Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an
    isolated place to pray.”

    1 Thessalonians 5:17
    “ Never stop praying.” NLT
    “Pray continually.” NIV
    “Pray without ceasing.” NKJV
    “Pray all the time.” MSG
    “Make your life a prayer.” TPT

    Acts 2:42 NLT, “All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles teaching, and to
    fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.”
    Colossians 4:2 NLT “Devote yourselves to prayer with an apart mind and a thankful
    heart.”

    BREAKTHROUGH WILL HAPPEN WHEN YOU SEEK GOD FIRST.

    Prince of Peace | Herbert Cooper - Audio

    Prince of Peace | Herbert Cooper - Audio

    1. Peace comes from surrendering to Christ

    Eph 2:13-14 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the
    blood of Christ. 14 For he himself is our peace, (NIV)

    Rom 5:1-2 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our
    Lord Jesus Christ, (NIV)

    Acts 10:36 You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace
    through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. (NIV)

    2. You maintain the peace of God through prayer

    Phil 4:6-7 Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; and don't forget to thank him
    for his answers. 7 If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than
    the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest
    as you trust in Christ Jesus. (TLB)

    3. You maintain the peace of God by maintaining peace in your relationships

    Romans 12:18-19 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19  Do not
    take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to
    avenge; I will repay,”  says the Lord. (NIV)

    4. You maintain the peace of God by honoring God with your life

    Romans 8:5–6 Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who
    are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. 6  So letting your sinful nature
    control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.
    (NLT)

    John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with

    (NIV)

    Colossians 1:16–17 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible,

    before all things, and in him all things hold together. (NIV)

    4 Reasons Jesus Is A Good Good Everlasting Father

    1. Jesus cares about you

    Luke 12:6–7 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.

    sparrows. (NIV)

    1 Peter 5:7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. (NLT)

    2. Jesus loves you

    Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died
    for us. (NIV)

    Romans 8:38–39 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the
    present nor the future, nor any powers, 39  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will
    be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NIV)

    3. Jesus disciplines you

    Proverbs 3:11–12   My child, don’t reject the LORD’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you.
    12  For the LORD corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights. (NLT)
    4. Jesus provides for you

    Matthew 7:11   If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much
    more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! (NIV)

    shall not perish but have eternal life. (NIV)

    Isaiah 9:6 “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be
    upon his shoulder, and his name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (NIV)

    Hebrews 4:15-16 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our
    weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he
    did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may
    receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (NIV)

    all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed
    in spirit. (NIV)

    2. IGNORE THE COUNCIL OF THE CROWD
    Matthew 20:31 The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all
    the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” (NIV)

    Philippians 1:6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry
    it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (NIV)

    3. COMMUNICATE YOUR NEED TO THE WONDERFUL
    COUNSELOR

    door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds;
