We have enough. Enough stuff. Enough. But one thing we don't have enough of is time. Time is frustratingly finite, an un-renewable resource & it is precious. We have a tendency to think that we own our time, but just like everything else in this world, God has called us to be stewards/managers of our time. We can then choose to walk by sight or we can choose to walk by faith. According to 2 Corinthians 5:7, "we walk by faith, and not by sight."
Happy Mother's Day! Hannah was a godly woman dealing with some pretty adverse cultural circumstances. Add to that a drastic broken relationship. How Hannah responded to adversity is a key to the character traits of a godly woman. Her example is one of humility, honesty & faith.
Do you ever feel the burden to share your faith with others, but feel unable to effectively communicate it? Tune in to what the Bible says about the different ways to communicate the gospel, as well as the right motivation, methods, or much more! While it can be scary or hard to do, this Christian discipline is very near to God's heart-Let's go do it!
Very few of us like being told "no." But what happens when God says, "No." How do we react? How we react is a pretty clear picture of our spiritual maturity. In today's study in Acts, we see the Holy Spirit stopping the Pauline entourage from entering Asia and Bithynia. In the Christian vernacular, we often say that "God closed a door." To many, when that happens, it can be very devastating. Closed door are one of the most effective tools that the Holy Spirit uses to guide us.
