Today I want to give you a place to start your week. It’s Monday and in the wake of a great weekend and a workweek ahead, sometimes you just need a “kickstart” to get focused. So grab some coffee let’s start a great week together.
I’m not sure if you know this, but a magnetic compass doesn’t always show “true north.” It has been historically known that “magnetic north” waders in diverse directions. At some periods in the earth’s history, it reversed so that magnetic north pole has been near the geographic south pole. What we know as “true north” is north according to the earth’s axis. Most of us only know magnetic north. We follow what a needle driven by a magnetic PULL and have learned to follow that.
There are many things “pulling” at our attention attempting to get the focus of our lives. Jesus is our “True North.” And in this series, we’ll dive into the Old Testament prophets who spoke out to draw the people of God back to “True North.”
Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:
- I can REDUCE my beliefs down to my experience or I can RAISE my experience up to my beliefs.
- Prophecy lets us know WHO God is (disposition) and WHAT he is up to (direction).
- Too many of us try to bring God’s story into our story instead of us stepping into His story.
- It’s amazing how a storyline in your head can develop a “pull” in your heart.
Love you all. Have an amazing week.
BTW: Here’s our new song we’ve done over the past two weeks:
