    I wish I would’ve know then what I know now | Herbert Cooper - Audio

    I Wish I Would’ve Known Then What I Know Now
    Proverbs 26:11 As a dog returns to his own vomit, So a fool repeats his folly. (NKJV)

    1. I wish someone would’ve told me
    Proverbs 10:21   The lips of the righteous nourish many, but fools die for lack of sense. (NIV)
    Isaiah 5:13 Therefore my people have gone into captivity, Because they have no knowledge; Their
    honorable men are famished, And their multitude dried up with thirst. (NKJV)

    2. I wish I would’ve pursued knowledge
    2A. I wish I would’ve desired wisdom
    Proverbs 4:5–8 Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. 6 Do
    not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. 7 The beginning of
    wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. 8 Cherish her, and she will
    exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. (NIV)
    2B. I wish I wasn’t a know it all
    2C. I wish would’ve pursued getting feedback on my blind spots

    Proverbs 15:14   A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash. (NLT)

    instruction. (NIV)
    Proverbs 3:13–18 Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, 14 for she is more
    profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies;
    nothing you desire can compare with her. 16 Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and
    honor. 17 Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. 18 She is a tree of life to those who
    take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed. (NIV)

    3. I wish I would’ve applied what I heard
    3A I wish I spent more time changing instead of blaming & justifying

    Proverbs 1:28–32   “When they cry for help, I will not answer. Though they anxiously search for me,
    they will not find me. 29  For they hated knowledge and chose not to fear the LORD. 30  They rejected my
    advice and paid no attention when I corrected them. 31  Therefore, they must eat the bitter fruit of living
    their own way, choking on their own schemes. 32  For simpletons turn away from me—to death. Fools
    are destroyed by their own complacency. (NLT)

    This is how we fight our battles | Tommy McCaul - Audio

    Exodus 17:8-13 While the people of Israel were still at Rephidim, the warriors of Amalek
    attacked them. 9 Moses commanded Joshua, “Choose some men to go out and fight the army of
    Amalek for us. Tomorrow, I will stand at the top of the hill, holding the staff of God in my
    hand.”10 So Joshua did what Moses had commanded and fought the army of Amalek.
    Meanwhile, Moses, Aaron, and Hur climbed to the top of a nearby hill. 11 As long as Moses held
    up the staff in his hand, the Israelites had the advantage. But whenever he dropped his hand, the
    Amalekites gained the advantage. 12 Moses’ arms soon became so tired he could no longer hold
    them up. So Aaron and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side of
    Moses, holding up his hands. So his hands held steady until sunset. 13 As a result, Joshua
    overwhelmed the army of Amalek in battle. (NLT)

    1. Power in the Proper Perspective

    Exodus 17:9 Moses commanded Joshua, “Choose some men to go out and fight the army of
    Amalek for us. Tomorrow, I will stand at the top of the hill, holding the staff of God in my

    2. Power in the Pursuit of God's Presence

    Exodus 17:11 As long as Moses held up the staff in his hand, the Israelites had the advantage.
    But whenever he dropped his hand, the Amalekites gained the advantage. (NLT)

    power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (ESV)

    Luke 6:45 The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil
    person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the ABUNDANCE of the heart his mouth
    speaks. (ESV)

    Psalm 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head
    with oil; MY CUP OVERFLOWS. (ESV)

    3. Power in Partnership with God's People

    Exodus 17:12-13 Moses’ arms soon became so tired he could no longer hold them up. So Aaron
    and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side of Moses, holding up his

    hands. So his hands held steady until sunset. 13 As a result, Joshua overwhelmed the army of
    Amalek in battle. (NLT)

    Luke 2:8-11 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at
    night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were
    terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for
    all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

    (NIV)

    Ephesians 2:1–5 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2  in which you used to
    live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit
    who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3  All of us also lived among them at one time,
    gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by
    nature deserving of wrath. 4  But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5  made us
    alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.
    (NIV)

    3. It’s for all people

    for all the people. (NIV)

    2 Corinthians 5:14–15 Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all,
    we also believe that we have all died to our old life. 15  He died for everyone so that those who receive
    his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was
    raised for them. (NLT)
