“And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:41,42)
Many things cry out to possess our attention, but not everything is going to feed and fulfil our lives to the same degree. How can we know what to focus our attention on and when? Not everything that glitters is gold.
In the process of following Jesus, we will be presented with many temptations vying for our attention, finite things that don’t deserve all our efforts and time. How can we learn to manage our priorities and keep Jesus centre place throughout the ups and downs of a demanding daily life?
The Word of God is our tool for renewing our minds. Daily engagement with the word of God allows us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds and focus on the right things in the necessary way. Without this renewing process, we would constantly be picking up things to focus on, focussing on things at the wrong time and indulging in things for the wrong amount of time, among other mistakes. However, God has put many keys in His Word for how we can live a focused, balanced and productive life and can empower with His Spirit to live this way.
Join other pioneers at this meetup for a great time of fellowship and learning together to discover the divine keys on how to focus our priorities right.
When we feel troubled by problems or intimidated by challenges, the call to exercise faith can feel like a far cry and an unrealistic possibility for the situation we are facing. It is all too easy to do what fear says in the moment and forget that God has offered us an alternative. As humans we often fall into the habit of giving power to our negative situations through what we say and by speaking pessimistically about what we are going through. The Bible reminds us in Proverbs 18:21 that “Death and life are in the power of the tongue”.
God understands how fickle the flesh can be when facing various difficulties and that’s why we cannot afford to be passive when facing them. “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit” (Proverbs 15:4).
Job 22:28 provides us with a profound God-given principle for dominion in any circumstance - “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways”. So, even though fear may feel like the standard response when in a situation that is trying to overcome us, we must remember that even the smallest step of faith pulls us in the right direction, closer to God and God’s Spirit of Power, love and of a sound mind will guide us through the storms.
Join other pioneers at this meetup for a great time of fellowship and inspiration as we explore together how to face our challenges in faith rather than fear. Your success and satisfaction in life will grow in leaps and bounds as you become a man or woman of faith.
