UrbanLife last thursday was really good. The group was relatively small since many were either still in Melbourne or on holiday.
Yan talked on 'Focus'. What is your focus for the season?
Yesterday I talked to Daddy God. And I realised something - Yes, this season is going to be a time for growth; yes, this season, I should and want to chase God even more than before; yes, this season is a time to expect many awesome things from Daddy God.
Then Daddy God pointed out to me - Do not obsess with the things you need to do to fulfill all those. In other words, do not do it for the sake of doing it, but because I sincerely want Him.
Makes sense, yeah? =)
And I realised yesterday from one of my actions that it was almost like a practice v.s preach issue that I could have fallen into if I had not been careful. I thank the Lord that things have been really great back home, with hardly anything going wrong or any of my old bad habits popping up. Still, the bible says that sin can easily ensnare us should we not stick to the Lord daily and take it too easy on our own knowledge.
Jeremiah 23:28 shows that the Truth is strength; the Word is power. That is what we need to connect us to Christ. Through His Word. Not only that but through prayer and fellowship with Him. That is the way to chase Him and go for higher.
