“On your feet, Daughter of Zion!..I’m remaking
you into a people invincible…”
Micah 4:13, The Message
What if I could convince you that you’ve been born into a raging war? Would it change the way you see the world around you? Would it change the way you think, believe, or behave?
Jesus says, “This is the crisis we’re in: God-light streamed into the world, but men and women everywhere ran for the darkness. They went for the darkness because they were not really interested in pleasing God. Everyone who makes a practice of doing evil, addicted to denial and illusion, hates God-light and won’t come near it fearing a painful exposure. But anyone working and living in truth and reality welcomes God-light so the work can be seen for the God-work it is” (John 3:19-21).
Are you really interested in pleasing God? Sit with the LORD and ask Him to reveal your true heart.
What does denial and illusion look like for you? Do you know truth that you aren’t living by? Are your beliefs and your behaviors at odds?
What are you afraid of when you think of standing before God with your full story playing on the big screen?
If you haven’t started a journal yet, start one, and write these questions down and any new questions that come as you sit with Jesus and learn about this light versus the dark.
If you are able to attend the study, I look forward to seeing you at the OKWU Hart Conference Room on Tuesday, October 6th starting at 8 p.m.
