Faith Over Fear: Season Two//Day Four

Pondering

Each day you spend with God, learning Him, reading and meditating on His word, and praying, you will see that there has been a subtle but yet a drastic change in you. God does this so that you will stop in your busy day and fall down in awe of just how wonderful He has been toward you and how much He loves you. You may see this in the way you react toward a situation or if you are listening to something and it doesn’t sit well with your soul.  Deep down you are full of seeds and they are starting to awaken. You will discover passion and desires you didn’t know you had before. Don’t you see that you are watering those seeds with the presence of Jesus – His love, His light, and His water? They are starting to sprout! You have seedlings developing and soon they will bear fruit! Keep up the good work, keep moving forward, and God will deliver you in times of doubt for a good purpose!

Jeremiah 15:11 The LORD said, “Surely I will deliver you for a good purpose; surely I will make your enemies plead with you in times of disaster and times of distress.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lordwhose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green.  It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

Habakkuk 2:2-3 And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.

Praying

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come to you completely in awe of just how merciful, loving, and gracious you are toward me. I don’t deserve the goodness you have shown me but I rejoice and I am so thankful that you chose to redeem me. Continue awakening the seeds that you planted in me before I was born so that I might discover my purpose and passions and fulfill your will in my life. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.

Practicing

What changes have you noticed from your old self to your new self?

Have you noticed any seeds sprouting and if so, what passions are you developing? If you are unsure, pray and talk to God about them. Write them down!

How can you spend time cultivating the sprouts that have already begun to bloom?

Xoxo,

Hannah B.
