“...cling tightly to the Lord your God...”
There’s been so much to take away from our summer reading!
I just read Joshua 4 “...the hand of the Lord is mighty, that you may fear the Lord your God forever.” God is the One who marks our steps and gives us safe passage. He builds the church (Matt 16:18) the 12 stones are a memorial, a sign of 12 tribes, later 12 apostles 12 foundations of heaven. I am in awe of God. He is in it from the beginning. He cares for His church, His people and me. I have been feeling overwhelmed by some things, but I am reminded again of who He is and so thankful to trust Him more for these worries.
It’s an encouragement to all of us to hear what you are learning!
Don’t forget to divide the passage in sections throughout the week.
If you haven’t started reading with us, why not start this week?
Our passage for this week is...Judges 1-4 & 13-16.
3 questions to consider each week:
1. What biblical truths did I discover this week?
2. What attribute of God was revealed in these chapters?
3. How do I apply God’s word to my life this week?
*watch for what is being repeated in the passage
I’ll touch base with you mid week and be praying for you!
🥛Fill you cup. Don’t let the fear of being kind ever stop you. .
🤔😐Have you ever talked to a homeless person? Asked them their story? Look them in the eye and try to be apart of their life for a small moment? Last week @4ldr1n and I did. We met some wonderful people. One particular guy named Chris, with his dog🐶 Princess, who despite his story, losing his job, being stuck for rent and ending up on the street, always having his mate Princess there with him kept him hopeful despite how helpless he could have been. .
What struck me as odd is that afterwards was that Buzz turned to me and said “I’ve always wanted to do this, but never have… now I just feel so full”. I had said the same thing to myself. How many others say the same? Do you?
🌟What stops us from acting on our feelings? Our gut? What stops us from reaching a hand to that homeless person and asking them genuinely if they are ok?✌ What stops us from telling your partner that they hurt you? What stops you from dancing with everyone else? Or by yourself? What stops you from interacting with the world in a way that totally vibes with you. Not just your ego or consciousness but your very essence. Soul. Source. .
It’s fear. .
Fear of what others may think. Fear of how they may react. Fear of rejection. Fear halts connection. Fear halts love.
Thing is though, you can’t have one without the other. They are two sides of the same coin. You can't run or hide🐝⛰
Embrace it. Better to know it is there and act! Meet it head on, dancing on your feet, under lights, then have it paralyse and consume you.
Fill your cup with kindness. Don’t let fear of being kind ever stop you.

(Matthew 17 ) ------------ 18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Lord FULLY INTENDED that His Church (His Body) to excerpt all Authority in the name of Jesus Christ to cast out devils, to heal the sick, perform all manners of miracles, and all sorts of supernatural manifestations in Christ Jesus.
THIS MANNER COMES ONLY BY PRAYER & FASTING. Jesus does NOT state things so direct unless He meant that we MUST gain access to His supernatural power in casting devils out by PRAYING AND FASTING for it to occur.
.......so, how is your really Prayer relationship with Jesus Christ? Are you confident that you have access to the Lord's Power to cast out demons of a person? .
