A WORD FROM THE EDITOR
This time around I decided I would write a poem. It was inspired by this month’s Monthly Tidbit. After the Lord gave me the scripture, it struck a cord in me. I felt the need to write it all down shortly after that. I’ll be doing a blog post as well on just how I’ve been feeling and what all has been going on with me. What I will say for right now is that I’ve been very heavy hearted, and what I need now more than ever, is prayer. Please be sure to say a few quick words when you can and continue to lift me up in spirit.

Sunday, Nov. 27, 2016, “Be Still (Psalm 46:10-11)”
“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.” (Psalm 46:10-11 KJV)
Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2016, “Evolving in Wisdom (II Timothy 3:14-17; 4:1-5)”
MEMORY VERSE: “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” (II Tim. 4:2 KJV)
Are you growing in God? Are you holding on to the things that He has taught you, and instilling it in your life and the people around you? Daily we must die and daily we should be taking something away. “Remain faithful to the Word of God you’ve been taught…” There’s a difference someone saying something to you and teaching you something. “When we are allowing people to sow into our lives we have to cautious about what we take in.” The Word of God helps us in discerning between what’s right and wrong.
Maturing and evolving in wisdom means when people hold us accountable we should listen to them. Do not allow pride to keep you stuck when all you had to do was simply admit the wrong, repent and turn back to Jesus. “You have to trust the people who are instilling things in you… They’re not trying to run your life.” We don’t like the idea of someone telling us what to do or telling us how to live our lives. What we have to understand however is when we’ve strayed it is up to our brothers and sisters to help steer us in the right direction. The same goes for the pastor. You can’t get upset and decide not to follow him anymore when the messenger comes by your house, “You have to have the wisdom to listen.”
The Word of God equips us to do the will of the Lord. We should not be so focused on the physical (the natural) that we forget all about the spiritual. Jesus has already warned us in advanced of what is to come, so we can’t “get offended when people are making a mockery of God because He told us the time was coming… God is telling us what to expect; that’s why the Word prepares us.” What are you taking in that will help further the ministry Christ has given you? Are the things being instilled into you going to help build on to the Kingdom?
