Reflecting on The Principle of “And”

Saturday is a day to reflect on all that God was speaking to you this week and how it will affect your life going forward.

From those of us on the Tree Church Daily team, we hope that you have had an amazing week in your purposed time with God. We pray that you were challenged and encouraged by God’s word and His presence in your daily life.

Today we want you to do something simple yet incredibly important. We want you take time to write in a notebook, journal, or record a voice memo in your phone answering the prompts below. This does not need to be profound, poetic, or polished. It is a record for you to visit later to see and remember all that God is doing in your life. Journaling is a way to remind you of what God is speaking to you. Speaking something out loud or writing it down makes what we are thinking tangible and makes us accountable to it. If God has challenged you or called you to do something specific this past week, making it tangible makes it real. So don’t skip today…today is about faith building, and that is what we pray happens for you.

Before you get started though, let’s pray together:

Thank You for today. Thank you for loving me and showing me mercy. God help me this week to get out of Your way so I can see what miracles You have for my city. Show me how to get past the resistance I have in my life. Soften my heart so I can be in tune with Your Holy Spirit. Light my path so I can be the builder You call me to be for Your kingdom. Amen.

Here are today’s prompts for you to process through in your written or voice journal:

First, focus on God’s promises to you. God is calling you to do something great. What kind of resistance are you facing in accomplishing this calling? (Yourself, other people, physical, spiritual, mental, emotional, satan).

Second, focus on your current reality. Are you willing to give this resistance to God, or are you going to hold on to it?

Lastly, focus on a step God has challenged you to take. Nehemiah was called to build a wall in spite of many personal limitations. What are some limitations in your life that you need to give to God so you can advance the kingdom?
