Jesus already knew the problems you would face in this life, and He made provision for you ahead of time. For those in ministry leadership, this is essential to remember.
As Christians, we accept that Jesus is our foundation. Everything we do should be built upon Him, but that’s not always how we act. Instead of accessing everything we need through what Christ has already done, oftentimes, we try to make things happen for ourselves in our own strength and become frustrated with God when we’re unsuccessful.
Young adults confront a variety of obstacles in life, some of which are unique to their generation, and they require the same wisdom to navigate life and make godly decisions as everyone else.
I’ve been concerned about young adults. We tend to talk about children’s church and teens, but often we leave out young adults or “millennials.”
Confidence and faith in God compensate you by escorting you into a place of rest. That rest positions you to receive what’s already been done. So, what’s necessary to keep this confidence and faith? Patience. Employ patience to maintain your confidence so that your faith will continue working long enough to produce a harvest of rest.
The righteous man’s steps are ordered by the Lord, so we need to pause every now and then to make sure God is the One directing our steps. We must make sure that we’re not being moved by good ideas that aren’t God’s ideas.
Pastors Derrick and Octavia Roberts have an “out of the box” style of ministry that fires up and motivates the younger generation to express themselves without being quenched and held back. You can read more about their beginnings in ministry in last month’s article, Changed by God’s Power. Here’s more of their dynamic interview about Reset women, DOPE men, and being out of the box at Open Wings Ministries.
“You will face some difficulties, challenges, disappointments, and failures if you keep living. However, a good man falls seven times and still arises because God is with us, in us, and God is on our side. It’s called life, so don’t let the devil beat you up because you’re going through a challenge. You will come out victorious on the other side.” ~Bishop Kenneth Fuller
With this article, we aim to promote the breakdown of old religious mindsets that are debilitating to marriages. Every man and woman in a marriage, covenant relationship, or partnership has to submit in their areas of weakness in order to align with their partner’s strengths. The institution of marriage is all about oneness.
