God invites us to participate in the ultimate victory that He has for us and for the world.
With that invitation in hand, we have the choice to make...
Do we go "all in" WITH Him in victory?
Or, do we take the opportunity for granted and miss out on ultimate victory?
Or, because of our lack of focus/perspective (see last week),
do we even miss seeing the great opportunity He is offering to us?
Why do we "leave no stone unturned" in our career, but not in what ACTUALLY sustains us in life?
"Don't be afraid," the prophet answered. "Those who are with us are more than those who are with them." - 2 Kings 6:16
Sometimes, when life seem messed up, contorted, out of proportion...we need to change our focus...our lens...our perspective...we need to "zoom out" to get the big picture and see that God is present and always has been.
God will NEVER be outnumbered, surprised, or caught off guard.
God, open our eyes to see Your powerful presence surrounding us!
What does it look like to be spiritually healthy?
We are all at risk of being infected by the sinfulness in us & around us.
Anger, bitterness, & unforgiveness hardens our hearts
& makes us selfish and at risk of infection.
There is no precaution so effective as "being healthy".
What does that actually look like?
