Fruit 9 Series Riding the crest of the wave/Spiritual Wetsuit/Paddling/The Leash
Today we continue.
Riding the crest of the wave equals God's way. (Faith needed) (Faith in God and His Word, not opinions)
White waters equal doing things our way. (Obedience vs. Willfulness or wipeout)
Repentance places a person back on the word or surfboard.
Bobbing equals a possible wave or an opportunity. (Proper selection needed)
If we see an opportunity with doubt we will continue to bob up and down.
If we take the opportunity (Wave) (God's will), in faith it will please God.
Hebrews 11:5-7 (Faith Hall of fame)
"By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death; and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was attested as having pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please him. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him." RSV
We either ride these waves or get pounded by them.
"Count it all joy, my brethren, when you meet various trials, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." RSV
"He has made everything beautiful in its time. NKJV
