Ezra 7:1-8:20 / 1 Corinthians 4:1-21 / Psalm 30:1-12 / Proverbs 20:28-30
Standout Verse: Psalm 30:2-3
“O Lord my God, I cried out to You and You healed me. O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave. You have kept me alive that I might not go down to the pit.”
Here's a list of some of God’s favorite things:
ABUNDANT, FRUITFUL, LIFE RIGHT HERE ON EARTH!
RESTORATION – taking the broken, abused, back-slidden and mistreated, and healing their hearts; making them whole and beautiful again – a sign and wonder that points others to Him!
RESCUING His children from sin and separation (from Him and His BEST for them)!
THRIVING RELATIONSHIPS WITH HIS CHILDREN
God is into GOOD STUFF! If we need healing, He promises to heal us. If we need to be rescued, He promises to reach out His hand to help us. If we are dry and weary, He’ll “water” us so we become green again and experience abundant, fruitful life. He NEVER wants to see us go down into the “pit” (whatever that may represent). He is completely PRO-LIFE, PRO-HEALTHY, PRO-GROWING, PRO-RELATIONSHIP, PRO-FRUITFUL, PRO-US! How GREAT is our GOD!
