I’ve found myself revisiting a lot of “convictions” I had because I realized three years ago that most of them were derived from the opinions of other people rather than doing the work of studying for myself.
His divine initiative has set you on the path that leads directly to Him, and you are responsible to walk it, but along the way, you’ll find the sustenance your soul needs to keep your pace by setting your sights upon Christ and not looking back. All is of grace. We are responsible. God is the divine initiator. Man is the responsible actor. Let’s not diminish either one of these biblical truths, but hold both of them tightly and closely, believing that as we work, so does He.
ble say what it says. And I need to be okay with not having all the answers. He is God. We are His creation. He can do with us whatever He pleases in order to bring about His good and righteous plan. His desires and plans take precedence over ours. That’s what it means for God to be God, and that’s what it means for us to be servants of the King. He carries out His will and uses us to do it.
Is our ministry our gift to God or is our ministry God’s gift to us?
In God’s economy, it is the Christian who is constantly 𝘨𝘳𝘰𝘸𝘪𝘯𝘨, not constantly 𝘥𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘨 that is the most effective.
