Pastor Dean has informed and challenged us over the past month of how important it is to be “Generous” with all that we have been given. Now that we have gained this knowledge, what are we going to do with it? Have you heard your conscience speaking to you? Do you feel a gentle nudge to move in a certain direction? What does it mean to be generous with your TIME, your RELATIONSHIPS, with GOD and with your RESOURCES? If you are not sure; then, ask the Holy Spirit. God’s Holy Spirit is what helps to direct us while we are here on this Earth.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV)
A man’s heart plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps.
Proverbs 16:9 (NKJV)
Letting Go and Letting God
Let me forewarn you; you must be open and willing if you want to see God move. You never know, He may call you to move to New York…. oh wait…., that was us. But seriously, God can do some unbelievable things when we fully surrender to Him. Addictions can be broken; wounds can be healed; relationships can be mended. Deep meaning and purpose arise from “letting go and letting God” live through you.
For we are God’s masterpiece.
He has created us anew in Christ Jesus,
so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:13 (NKJV)
