A REASON FOR THE GOOD AND THE BAD.

Read Ecclesiastes 7:14 (https://bit.ly/3xRvFZm).

Looking at the concept of a flower, a seed is planted. For the seed to grow it needs a good amount of sunlight, good nourishment from fertile soil, and water (RAIN).

We need the sunshine but we also need the rain to grow. I read this quote that said: “Rock bottom will teach you lessons that mountain tops never will”!

When you’re in your rainy season, introspection, thought, relying on God and trusting Him takes place – and these things strengthen our faith. Embrace these rainy days, they are there for our growth.

GUIDANCE.

In our daily walk with God – we often come across concepts, questions and things we would want extra clarity on.

After spending time in the word of God and asking the Holy Spirit to help us understand what we’ve just read, we could also seek extra guidance/counsel.

“For a lack of guidance, a nation falls, but victory is won through many advisors.” (Proverbs 11:14https://bit.ly/3dLS56j) Proverbs 20:18 (https://bit.ly/3hUG9Av) and Proverbs 15:22 (https://bit.ly/2q6lP40) add on to and encourages us to find others wiser to give us advice and share their wisdom.

Someone else’s perspective, their age difference, their experiences, all add to our knowledge and growth.

Faithful faith.

How has 2020 affected your faith? Have you drawn closer to God? Or has the year taken a toll on your relationship with Him?

No matter where you’re at, it’s okay. You can still grow, can still get back on track. I’m going to give you some practical tips this month on how to get back into the Word and spending time with God.

This week, try memorise this verse. It’s a reminder of where we want our hearts to be.
Romans 12:12 (https://bit.ly/29buOuY)
“When you hope, be joyful. When you suffer, be patient. When you pray, be faithful”

Mourning and growth.

How can I love God more?

When I see others love and passion for Jesus, mine seems so weak in comparison. James 4:8-9 says ‘Get closer to God.’ The closer you are to God, the more you see the depth of your sinfulness. As you realise this, you will see that Jesus did far more for you on the cross than you first thought. You were even less worthy of His forgiveness and He loved you even more than you thought.

Therefore, you mourn your own sin and are even more grateful for what He did for you. And so, your love for Him will grow – Ephesians 3:18-19 (https://bit.ly/3n54tRS).
