"For a seed to grow it takes time in the same soil, with the same fertilizer. It’s the same with Christians, to grow we need to stay in the same place and be planted in.
Don’t be a pot plant Christian.
If things are feeling unsettled, it means you’re stepping in to a new thing. Enquire with God what is going on instead of leaving to go somewhere ‘safe.’ “
"Overflowing potential. You have a capacity for beyond what you believe about yourself. I’ve given you a natural gift of influence and creativity. Creativity flows uniquely out of who you are, out of the core of your being. Don’t be discouraged if you’re different, embrace it and find me within it.
I’ve called you to the front line of the battle field. You will lead armies for this generation. The battles are different these days. It’s not about blood and warfare but about deep spirited battles and fights between ourselves.”
We cannot limit Gods healing power by our own definition of healing of the physical. We may pray for healing and think God hasn’t heard us or God hasn’t moved because we haven’t seen the physical healing, but God also looks beyond our flesh, and deep-spirited healing is just as powerful as the physical.
"If you have gotten anything out at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care - then do me a favour: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.
.. Do everything readily and cheerfully - no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. “
