Presentation Description

How often do you need to take a second look at the opportunities or responsibilities you've tried, or believed God has called you to, but maybe things didn't quite turn out the way you expected? What do you do next? Pray or take things into your own hands? When we take a look at our circumstances and consider our prayers, we might want to also think about our hopes, our demands, and our attitudes. Are we reading and meditating on the Scriptures and trying to hear the heart and voice of the Lord, then confront the situation ready to do what we believe He would want us to do? Or, are we counting on what we can see or feel or on our expectations to get us through a problem or to a goal? (Could that possibly be pride??) Deacon Josh explores this question and challenges us to apply scriptures to ourselves first. and to become closer to the Word, both in the Book and in the Spirit, and to know the God Who is the Word and Who chooses to reside within.
