Hi Youth Family,
How great it is to rest?! The rhythm of rest and work is because God wants us to remember that we are NOT slaves (Deut 5:15), but are free to worship! The Summer is quickly passing us by and we only have ONE more event this Summer, Youth Beach Day. Let us fellowship and enjoy this special rest together before the new school year begins.
This Morning in our Time with Abba, the two words I received was Depend and Mercy. In the Old Testament, God shows us that when we put our full dependence on Him, He will win the battles and we get to share in the victories, but when we choose to depend on our own abilities, strength, and resources, we no longer reap the benefits of His glory. In a similar way Paul writes in the book of Romans:
“It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.” (Rom 9:16)
Our salvation or our victories do not depend on the abilities of man, but of the mercy of God. This is often uncomfortable because it forces us to be vulnerable and put ourselves in a helpless position. Today Youth Family, let us release anything we feel like we have control over and lay this before God once again depending on him.
- Prayerfully ask God “what are some areas where I have a lot of control in”
- Make a list of three things this week where you can rely on God more. (Waking up, Heart of Worship, Share God’s word with a friend)
- Prayerfully watch these areas throughout the week, constantly praying and giving up more to God.
