II TIMOTHY 4 vs 3
"For there is going to come a time when people won't listen to the truth but will go around looking for teachers who will tell them just what they want to hear." (TLB)
When we are in the midst of an intense and painful process in our lives, it's very difficult to adequately assess any kind of progress or growth.
However, we can rest assured that as we yield to Christ in obedience and patience, He will finish what He has begun in us.
"The Lord will deliver you... He will bring you safely through."
Meanwhile, let's encourage and support each other with this truth.
It's such a temptation to get caught up in the "Christian entertainment" syndrome, substituting concerts, speakers, or evangelists who have strong charisma and persuasive expression for the Spirit's presence. High emotion sometimes can be mistakenly labeled as spiritual power.
"Balance"...is the magic word!
Dear Lord, we thank you for your Holy Spirit who keeps us stable as we walk this tightrope of life. Help us this day to adequately deal with whatever is coming around the next corner. Amen
