Have you ever been on a mission’s trip? If so, then you know the similar feelings I’m going to be describing today. If not, then why haven’t you? Go on a trip! I promise you, it will change your life. Time, money, resources, age, fear, whatever excuses you may have, don’t let anything prohibit you from doing the work of God, on both foreign soil and on your home turf.
Hello church family and blessings. Hope this post finds you well. Wanted to take a moment and share something the Father has been sharing with the Family First leadership team. The topic is assimilation/hospitality.
“Canvas for Your Name" is the newest song from Definitive Worship, our worship team here at Family First Church in Spring Hill, FL. Our prayer is that through this song and through our worship you can encounter God in your own way. Just this morning we uploaded an acoustic live music video of this song and wanted to share with you our heart behind it!
Declaring More Through Worship 2: In our last post I wrote about how several worship songs have been connecting with me through these devotionals and prayers for MORE. During this season of 2018, I really believe God is preparing His people to actually start living the abundant life! Many believe that their lives after having received Christ are much more full than they were previously. And this is true for many in their spiritual walk, but some have yet to experience this blessing of more in their finances. If we truly believe God is a God of abundance, then why not believe that He wants His people to live blessed financially?
This past week we finished our devotional series, "50 Days to More!" As we have been dwelling on what it means to seek after this lifestyle that God is calling us to, there have been several worship songs that have resonated this same message. We believe that God wants to do MORE in us and through us in this season, and we also believe in the power of proclaiming what the Holy Spirit is saying in praise, worship, and prayer.
Day Fifty (2/25/18): Conclusion Welcome to Day Fifty! This is the end; can you believe it? Our prayer is that throughout these 50 days you have learned what living a life of increase is all about. It’s about MORE, not just so that we can have more for the sake of having more. But it’s about MORE, so we can BE more, DO more, HAVE more, and SEE more work being done for God’s Kingdom through our lives than ever before!
Day Forty-Nine (2/24/18): The Precious Seed In our reading today we are studying one of the most challenging instructions God ever gave Abraham. He asked him to sacrifice his one and only son! He was the child God promised him. Abraham and Sarah waited MANY years to see the birth of Isaac come to pass. He was the promised son of Israel; Abraham’s heir to all of God’s blessings! And now God has just asked him to sacrifice this boy on an altar before Him!
Day Forty-Eight (2/23/18): The Targeted Seed Recommended Reading: Matthew 13:1-9
Today’s reading is the Parable of the Sower. In this parable Jesus tells of a farmer sowing seed into four different kinds of soil, and there were four different results. The seed that fell on the good soil produced grain and harvests of up to hundred, sixty, and thirty fold!
Day Forty-Seven (2/22/18): The Daily Seed & The Seed of Honor Recommended Reading: Matthew 6:1-24
In our recommended reading today Jesus teaches the disciples the famous “Lord’s Prayer”. Part of Jesus prayer says, “Give us this day our daily bread.” In other words, he is asking for provision from the Father to have all that we need or desire for that day. Today we are going to discuss the importance of sowing daily seeds.
Day Forty-Six (2/21/18): Sowing Expectantly Recommended Reading: Psalm 62:1-8
If we want to get anything back from the seeds we sow, we have to sow them with expectation. We have to have faith in God’s promise and trust that he will grow our seeds. Faith assures us of the things that we are expecting.
