The Lord Helps Us To Understand

God is waiting to show you the way.

God is waiting to show you the way.

2 You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others. 3 Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 Soldiers don’t get tied up in the affairs of civilian life, for then they cannot please the officer who enlisted them. 5 And athletes cannot win the prize unless they follow the rules. 6 And hardworking farmers should be the first to enjoy the fruit of their labor. 7 Think about what I am saying. The Lord will help you understand all these things.—2 Timothy 2:2-7 (NLT)
​When​ God, through His Holy Spirit gives us wisdom and understanding, it isn’t just for our own enlightening. He wants and expects us to share it with those He puts in our path each day. God’s Kingdom will spread as 1 teaches 1 teaches 1 teaches 1, well, you get the idea. We don’t “own” the understanding that God gives to us It is given for us to use in glorifying and worshiping Him. As spiritual warriors, we should not be weighed down with the cares of this world. God goes before us and follows after us, He has prepared the way for us and the hearts that we are to speak into. Just as good farmers sow, weed, water and fertilize before they are rewarded with the fruits of their labor, so must we do the same things. Every time God prompts us to speak to someone, we are either sowing, watering, weeding, or fertilizing the mission field God has given to us. It has been determined that it takes 7 (on average) encounters with the Gospel to bring a soul to Christ. Everyday, we should be one of the 7.
