Reading Scripture: Final Thoughts

More about living the Word:

Important Warning:  In the moment, when you first get a new insight, it might not seem all that powerful or important.  You might not take the time to write it down.  And that would be a mistake.  You don’t know what is going to happen in your life next week.  But God does.  If you’ll actually follow through with each step of this process, He will prepare you for things to come.  Over and over, you’ll find yourself in situations you’ve prayed about.  And you’ll be equipped.  This is the power of the Kingdom of God 

Sometimes God shows up in powerful, unexpected, sovereign ways, but it is usually through these small and seemingly insignificant steps that the Glory of God is revealed.  Don’t allow the enemy to distract you from these moment by moments of joy that Jesus has for you.

One last time, please take that extra moment to post these revelations here at this site.  Even if you think that what you have heard is not worth sharing publicly, it could be the very thing that turns someone else’s life around.  And wouldn’t that be just like God to impart to you some bit of wisdom that you were familiar with, that impacts someone else you don’t even know.  Wouldn’t that be a cool thing to be a part of?  And isn’t that the way God likes to work?  Please don’t short-circuit that process.  That’s what we’re all here for, and we need you to make that happen.

Finally, Pray!  Pray that whatever God is showing you be manifest in your life.  If He is showing you something you need to do, pray that He be with you and help you see it through. If He is showing you some insight or wisdom, pray that He help you to understand yourself better and that He change your life to come into alignment with this thing He is showing you. Whatever He is showing you, Pray it through. Real life change only happens when we invite God in and ask Him to change our lives, our thinking, and our heart.  So pray that He does these things in your life, and pray for all of us participating here.  We will all do the same for you.

How powerful is that?

Much of what we have talked about here have come from teachings that I heard from Pastor Wayne Cordeiro guest speaking by video at Gateway Community Church, and also taught by Pastor Matt Carter at the Austin Stone.  These are the two churches that Wes & Kara Bridel regularly attend.  You can find more information about this method here… http://www.enewhope.org/firststeps/journaling/

Please – share this, and other posts from this blogs with somebody else, we start next week…

  1. […] Calling. You can read about this original idea in the posts on 1/9, 1/12, 1/14, 1/16, 1/20, & 1/22 introducing this study. However, I felt the S.O.M. was important enough for us to dig deeper. […]
