04 Jun Unchanging Lessons For Leaders: Faith in the Word
LESSONS FROM WALKING BY FAITH IN THE WORD
The revelation of the Word is a gradual unfolding into the life of those who are committed to God through His Word. If you do not work the Word it will not work for you. The Word is our access to God, His wisdom, His power and His goodness. The Spirit of God will regularly inspire and grant revelations in the Word for those whose desire is to do the Word. Whoever the esteem and the healing of the wound do not lie with another person but with us and our relationship with God. Correction should not be seen as rejection and everyone who has been hurt by others tends to want to hurt others. Hurting people usually hurt others. We need to know the root cause of the feeling we are getting from an offence, rejection or our fears. Sometimes we need to grow up and get past the feelings and at other times we can see someone trying to hurt us deliberately. We learn that the fallen human race is in need of forgiveness. Your experience presents you with the opportunity to become God’s agent of forgiveness. Our fears remind us of our deep need for God and help us to be in touch with our humanity. Our fear of God gives us the ground to overcome all other fears. Those who will fulfil God’s purposes for their lives need to take note of the following. Have the right orientation to life; be a student of life and a student for life. Meekness has to do with strength under control and being teachable. Learn from the experiences in life. Suffering has a lot to teach us in the aspects of obedience. Also cultivate the right lifestyle; the lifestyle of faith. Believe and act on God’s Word from the heart. Finally, always settle every matter by seeking God’s perspective of the matter. He will show you how to interpret your circumstances in the light of His will for your life. It is obvious that life’s lessons are not going to end until life itself ends. So keep learning and growing and remember to pass some of the lessons you learn to others to make this life better for others too! These few lessons are written for the purpose of learning and remembering unchanging lessons in life.
