Notes from the Joyce Meyer conference - evening of 2014-08-20 - part 5 of 5

22) Dave is a golfer, and he seeks it. He reads about golf, he practices, he watches TV shows about it, etc. He seeks it, he pursues it. 
Revelation: that's what "being passionate" about something means. Dave seeks it because he is passionate about it. I seek God because I am passionate about inner peace. So my job (since in this culture your work has to be what you are passionate about) should be a God seeker. (Lord, thank You for that revelation. I pray that You bring me even more clarity on that.)

23) Nobody has anything that they first didn't get from God.
All your skills and talents were first given to you by God.

24) We are not the owners of anything. We are only the stewards of God's things.

25) This was said by the man in the white suit (didn't get his name, will try to get it tomorrow): 
There's a hole in everyone's heart that only God can fill.
If you fill it with anything other than God, it becomes a black hole: no matter what you put in there, it is never enough.
