STEPS IN THE GOD DIRECTION
Our journey in this life with GOD is pretty much like a baby starting out.
1. REGULAR FEEDING FOR STRENGTH IS KEY TO SUSTENANCE AND GROWTH
1 Peter 2:2-3 NIV
Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
Many struggles in life will not be too hard when the strength and the know how to tackle them are available.
Malnourished children often fail at points where well nourished ones have no problems whatsoever. Even sicknesses take advantage of the underdeveloped bodies through lack of nutrients!
So it is with our walk of Faith! Many believers suffer non-progress because they are grossly under-malnourished .They only get a few imbalanced crumbs falling off the lips of some quick-fix quasi-spiritual TV or Internet environments. Often meant to hype the listeners more than genuine help!
Let alone that they generally miss midweek meetings if any in their area.
Imagine children dying of hunger when all food and medicine that they’d ever need are available – unacceptable hey!
The truth is, all the Spiritual nourishment you will ever need to advance rapidly to maturity in your walk with GOD is readily available! All that’s needed is for you to:
1.1. PRIORITIZE YOUR FEEDING TIMES.
Read something from the Word of GOD daily, Preferably in the Morning before you start your day. There are many challenges in the day, Experts in nutrition tell us that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Don’t go on an “empty stomach.” Even simple problems can look so daunting and discouraging. That’s why we are committed to providing regular, well balanced Spiritual diets through the printed page on all media possible.
2. REGULAR INSPIRATION IS OF VITAL IMPORTANCE
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
All of us need to be inspired regularly. Experts tell us that the differential on the inspired and the uninspired is as high as 40%. You started on this fresh walk with GOD as a result of an inspiring sermon in an environment where others were seeking the same.
2.2. FILL UP YOUR INSPIRATION TANK REGULARLY
Don’t neglect being at a service where the same or similar inspiring messages will be taught.
Those who are in the business of helping people loose weight tell us that most of their clients fail because they loose the initial inspiration and enthusiasm. Especially those who are lone Rangers and have no one to jog or exercise with.
You don’t have to walk alone. We are here for you!
I will be glad to keep sending you something to help you on your journey form time to time, but that’s just like a bite on your way home, you still need to get a “well cooked” spiritual meal in a homely environment.
I’m pleased to let you know that our church is expanding to a number of towns and cities and we will be glad to receive you and keep you well taken care of spiritually.
Here are more scriptures to fill up whet your spiritual appetite today:
GOD HAS GOOD PLANS FOR YOU
The Lord will work out his plans for my life—
for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
