What Are You Waiting For?
6-week Bible Study
I was in one of my favorite paper stores one day seeking the perfect birthday card for my older, yes, older sister. My eye kept catching a display of large square magnets with catchy phrases on them. One in particular would not stop calling out to me. It read, “WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?” I don’t know was all I could think. Such a usual answer to life’s questions. What am I waiting for? The perfect moment, the perfect timing, I really don’t know. I purchased that magnet and put it on my refrigerator where I see it everyday. It was not an impulse buy, but a purchase that continues to provoke much thought. I’ll never be educated enough, my house will never be clean or organized enough. I will never feel prepared enough to dive into what God has for me. So, what am I waiting for? This is it, this is what God is waiting for, a fun biblical study into what God has waiting for all of us.Check out a preview of the bible study!
I'm busy for the rest of my life...
There is a sign that always catches my eye in our IPic Theatre in Houston. It reads, "I am busy for the rest of my life, I am busy for the rest of my life..."
That’s me, that’s you. I am busy, you are busy. I am distracted, you are distracted. Is there every any REST for our busy, distracted souls? YES, the answer is YES. What Jesus provides is something that no spa or dinner out can match. The spirit of “busyness” is a stronghold for our soul. A stronghold is anything not of God that seems to tie you down and to keep you from living the life He intended. A stronghold is a distraction. God’s Word says this, For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4
Hebrews 4:12 says, For the Word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword. We serve a Living God!
God doesn’t care if you can locate the Book of Hebrews in the Bible or not. He longs to draw you close and to speak into your heart and give you the rest you need. We all want to know that it’s going to be okay and He says, “Yes, my beloved daughter, I AM in control. It’s going to be okay. Follow Me and LIVE.
