BreeAnn Duell- Youth In Christ Leader
Have you not heard? Do you not know? This was our conversation last Wednesday as Bree Duell walked our teens through an application of faith. The basis of Bree’s conversation was; having faith in Jesus Christ doesn’t make the storms of life easy, but what it does do is allow us to look back in our lives; and find God in every step of the way- expressing His faithfulness to us.
Next she covered how we have the choice to view life situations through human speculation/ rational thinking, OR, through the Holy Spirit- which gives us a bigger picture.
Biblical stories such as:
Job (Book of Job)
Jonah (Book of Jonah)
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego (Daniel 3- the Fiery Furnace)
Lazarus (John 11)
We can be honest with our struggles, but we still need to ask for instruction (from Father God). When we are focused on fears, we are no longer focused on peace. God fully understands our emotions and walks through it with us. But ultimately, we need to step into truth so we can see the Fruit of the Spirit expressed.
