FOOD FOR THE SOUL
Deuteronomy 31:8 And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”
Melody and Nancy have been friends for more than ten years. There were problems, different principles, different opinions in deciding things. However, they chose to face it and solve it together. They would look for their cell leader if their problems were prolonged. By God’s help, their relationship was reconciled.
We cannot avoid problems in any kind of relationship, including in the ministry. In fact, problems potentially occur here because we are not angels, but just ordinary people can make mistakes. There might be hurtful words, misunderstandings, or unpleasant attitude shown. If a person’s soul has not yet been restored and he joins a ministry, then he is likely to be disappointed.
Do not be afraid to join the ministry just because there will be problems. The Word of God says, As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. (Proverbs 27:17). If we face and solve it with God, then problems will actually make us mature even more. Therefore, we need to receive complete healing from God, so that not only ourselves are completely healed, but also our lives become a blessing for others. With a healthy soul, we can carry out God’s mission to reach souls better and more effectively.
Don’t be afraid of the PROBLEMS you are facing. FACE and OVERCOME with God.
1. What problems have you faced or are you currently facing?
2. What happens when you try to deal with it and solve it on your own STRENGTH?
3. When you face it with God, do you feel any difference?
“Lord Jesus, when we have problems with our family or with other people, we want to fully trust You. With God, we can face and solve it well. Thank you, Lord, in the name of the Lord Jesus we pray. Amen.”
