In the week following Hope CIty Church’s incredible First Fruits Sunday – Dave Gilpin looks at living the faith life. There is always something else to be believing God for. When God’s resources are unlimited there is always more to be tapped into – according to our faith, be it unto us! it’s according to faith though so don’t be snooting around someone else’s well. Dig your own!
The last few weeks have seen some incredible and unprecidented changes across the world’s banking and political systems. The media coverage is not unlike that of the recent conflicts in the middle east; blow by blow, minute by minute ‘as it happens’ coverage designed ultimately to beat the media competition in getting the latest developments out to you and I.
When things are financially tight in church life, or even in your personal life, it could be a sign that you’re actually smack bang in the middle of God’s will. Sometimes we just need a jolt. Our propensity for routine and familiarity slowly leads us away from noticing changes in season and changes in the mind of the Holy Spirit. When forced to really hear what the Spirit is saying we finally wake up and move out into new territory in God.
