The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18
Passion’s Purpose: His Presence
Passion’s Greatest Priority:
1.The Call of our passion is to DISPURSE HIS PRESENCE in all sectors, situations, and circles of influence. 2.The story of Creation was God giving us his strategy of how to see His presence in abundance in our lives, and on our planet. 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion…
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion… over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:26-28

1.Individual (heart-soul-mind-body) 2.Marriage 3.Family 4.Circle of Influence 5.City 6.Region 7.Nation 8.World And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Genesis 2:21-23
Deep – trance Sleep – remain consistently in a place of rest that is beyond normal – no restlessness Took – to put in hand; to fetch; to procure (to take by caring for) The Big Question:
1.What are you, am I, holding onto that we need to release out of our hand into the hand of God, so that it releases His ability for Him to do something supernatural with it? 2.Will we choose to “rest” in His Lordship over our lives? 3.Will we choose to be “blessed” by voluntarily bowing our knee in awe of our God?
