C for Chill, K for Know.

Read James 1:2-7 (https://bit.ly/31NiFVW)

When you’re going through a tough time remember to tell God about it, pray about all your worries. James tells us to ask God for wisdom because He wants to give it to us generously. After you have finished praying, try not to overthink stuff and worry too much about it after you have prayed about it. You could also do something that you enjoy doing; I find this helps take my mind off things.

Know that you can talk to God about it all – the good and the bad; not only when you are going through something difficult.

God works through us.

Read John 1:23 (https://bit.ly/3sS5yz0)
It’s a strange thing to say to someone right?!
What does it even mean?

As fellow Christians we ought to “make the way straight” by making time and creating a space for God to work in other peoples’ lives, as well as in our own lives.

Have you ever been at a church or an event where you’ve had a crazy experience that pulled you closer to God in a way? Maybe you’ve listened to a really cool gospel song or heard someone say something that was just amazing.

This week, in what way could you make time and create space for God to work?

DREAMS

I need to know what to do, but God seems silent.

In the bible God spoke through DREAMS. In Acts 16:9-10 (https://bit.ly/3aMWdSo) God used a dream to show Paul where to go. In Genesis 28:10-17 (https://bit.ly/3uslXez) God used a dream to encourage Jacob. In Acts 10:3-8 (https://bit.ly/3uvCb6u) God guides Cornelius through a dream to do something that would change His life forever.

And this still happens today, there are many stories of people in Muslim countries who have never met a Christian, but are seeing Jesus in dreams and coming to faith as a result.

Lord, help me be open to you speaking through the miraculous and not just discard it when you do.

RESULTS

Does God answer prayer?
When Daniel was thrown to the lions, we see in Daniel 6:22 (https://bit.ly/3pTVovg) that God shut their mouths. When asked what happened, Daniel recognised it was a direct Result of God’s work.

You can see God speaking and answering your prayers through the RESULTS of what He does in the world around you. Yet, often you are so busy with your life that you miss what He is doing.

Open your eyes to what He is doing, when you look at the world and see that He is speaking through His actions.

Lord, help me to look for how you are working all around me.
