When God tells you something, He means it and He’ll bring it to happen.
“Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2
We should ignore the shame of what we’re going through also.
“I have overcome the world” John 16:33
He will direct your steps (Prov 3:5-6)
“Your heavenly Father give(s) the Holy Spirit” (Luke 11:10-13)
“Behold what manner of love the father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!” 1 John 3:1
Jesus says, be wise as serpents and gentle as doves in Matthew 10:16. Galations 5:16, “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”
Should our faith walk be tempered by who we’re talking to? Should we be wise according to our surroundings to save our skin? our Pastor asks us.
The little girl, hesitant to play in the snow up to her knees. Then her mom shovels a path for her to play in. Then shovels another path in the shape of a big circle. The child becomes fearless and flourishes playing & running in the path when her mom took away her fear.
Lord, Jesus, make me an instrument of Your Spirit and speak through me whenever You want. Amen.
