I pray that your week is off to an amazing start. Here's some inspiration to go with you throughout your week.
"Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” (Luke 11:11-13)
Many of us were taught to fear God and to see Him as an angry or hard-to-please taskmaster. But Jesus tells us that God is someone entirely different! He assures us that when we pray we don’t have to be afraid of not being able to perfectly follow certain rules or rituals, but we can pray with a confidence that our Father in heaven loves us just as we are. We can also believe that God is a good, generous, warm, receptive and an absolutely “on-our-team” God.
More than anything else, God longs to spend time with us and He wants us to see Him as a God who desires to bless His children. In this season, be intentional and purposeful about building your relationship with God.
I love each of you dearly,
Pastor Sonya E. Williams
