Don’t go looking but be on the lookout!
I remember my friend Kevin told me one time, “Ashley, you need to stop looking and be on the lookout!”
After that, it wasn’t long until Stephanie came into my life and I was on the lookout.
Sometimes we are so busy looking for the next thing that we don’t look up and be on the look out for what God has right in front of us. Sometimes we are looking for some far-off external solution when maybe the solution we need is in reach of our current sphere.
Instead of hopin’ and wishin’ we’d win the lottery, maybe we need to be faithful with the finances God has given us in order to build wealth. Maybe instead of envying the marriage our neighbors have maybe we take our spouse by the hand and passionately express our love to them. Instead of looking at what someone else has, maybe it’s time to be on the lookout of what we already have.
Being on the lookout is much harder than going looking because we want to make it happen but the bible is clear about what happens when we endure.
Romans 5:3-4 NLT
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.
Don’t give up and go looking but be on the lookout!
Victorious Church UPDATE!
We launched Victorious Church on February 16th and it was awesome!
In three weeks we’ve seen 22 salvations and over 160 people attend the church! We also launched small groups with 34 people in men and women’s groups! Praise God!
The worship has been amazing and God has been drawing people from all across the valley to find us. It’s truly been supernatural to watch the Lord build His church!
I want to ask you to help us in moving forward as we build a culture of generosity. Please pray for a moment and ask God what you can do to give your best gift. We believe some of you can partner with us for next 6 or 12 months and help us financially as we gather more people to help us finance this great dream of Victorious Church.
We have changed our online giving option to make things much more simple than before, so please take a moment and try it out!
Thank you so much for your faithfulness!
