Spiritual Insight to Help Us Grow [EP:119]

Do you keep track of the things God is saying and revealing to you? What verses of scripture just keep coming up? What words, phrases, or concepts rise to the surface? What dreams has He planted? What types of invitations has He given to you?


Finding a way to record our spiritual insights helps us grow in intimacy with Jesus. But our growth doesn't stop there. Sharing our insights with others helps us grow in community and is a way that God often speaks to others. 


My pastor always said, "God comes to people through people." How many times has someone shared what God is teaching them and you've thought to yourself...I've been thinking of that same thing! That is a common way that God works and speaks!


In today's episode of the podcast, I am sharing spiritual insights that God has been teaching me over the last year. You may find that God speaks directly to you through what He is teaching me.


Here's a brief list of what I share:

  • I reap what I sow. If I don't like what I'm reaping, I need to change what I'm sowing.
  • I've viewing God through my problems and circumstances rather than viewing my problems and circumstances through the lens of God and His power.
  • I've been disappointed with God and that's ok. He welcomes the honesty and the wrestling.
  • I've been invited to do life and ministry with Him one day at a time. (This is an invitation that God gave me several years ago but I've struggled. I want live fully into each day and not worry about tomorrow.)
  • Honor God in all things. "Whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." (Colossians 3:17)
  • Don't despise the small beginnings. (Zechariah 4:10)
  • Fix your thoughts on what really matters...things of eternal significance.
  • Pay attention to the condition of the soil of your heart to receive the seeds God is giving. We can't control the what seeds He gives, when He gives them, or how He makes them grow...but we are responsible for the condition of our hearts so that when He does plant and water them, it's into a healthy heart and soul.
  • Love myself the way God loves me. Be careful and pay attention to what I tell myself. Talk to myself the way God would talk to me.

At all times God is with us and for us! He is good. His love never ends.

What resonates with you? I'd love for you to let me know as we encourage one another. (You can drop me a note HERE.)

No matter what time of year it is, it is important to remember what has God been teaching you. This not only helps you grow in your relationship with Him but as you share what He is saying and doing, it helps others grow too.


(Do you have a way to keep track of the spiritual insights He is giving you? You could make a quick list, create a prayer journal, even highlight the verse and put the date next to it with a short thought. There are many ways to hold on to the treasure He gives!)
