The Good Land of Er | Ego & Losing My Edge

You were made for more.

Life can be better, you can be stronger, and the future can be greater if you work with God to fulfill your destiny and calling.

Through the real-life stories of the prophets Elijah and Elisha, we will learn how God works with people who work with him.

It was true in Elisha’s day, and it’s true today. Ego will choke my opportunity for a greater life. When I’m in the midst of pushing forward, I can lose my edge. What do I need to do?

“Whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and the gospel will save it.” Mark 8:35

When God says how and when to take the dip, do it.

The Land of Er isn’t a permanent, automatic residence. It is ours through intentional daily decisions.

II Kings 6

We can be consistently swinging away on auto-pilot and lose our edge.

Identify where you lost it.

Base your identity in Christ. God is a master at recovering and keeping what was lost.

“Though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again.” Proverbs 24:16
