Multiplying us for His glory

Walking with the Lord

We’ve all been there, adding water to our near empty shampoo bottle to spread it just a little more until we can run to the store. It’s stretched thin, but it does the job. Maybe you have a few more hacks up your sleeve to multiply the lifespan of products. Please help us out and share! In the Bible, we see things supernaturally multiply that naturally would be at their end. Abraham’s offspring. Fish and loaves. Wine at a wedding. The early persecuted church. God’s providence and faithfulness is certainly the not-so-secret ingredient that spreads out these things, among many more. The world would look at the early believers in Jesus and think, “Oh they won’t last long. They are persecuted severely and either they will all die off or lose their zeal.” Yet the book of Acts shares the unfolding stories of how in the midst of persecution, the people of God grow increasingly in number. They spread more than what naturally makes sense!

Acts 9:31 tells us two important factors about these our earliest brothers and sisters in Christ. 1) They walked in the fear of the Lord and 2) They walked in the comfort of the Holy Spirit. They did not fear man, they feared God. They did not rely on earthly comforts, they relied on God’s comfort.

Friends, we too are part of that growing number of believers, empowered by the Spirit to walk in these things as we face stretching circumstances in our faith journey. When we feel depleted, nearing the end of our strength to keep going, we can rely on the wisdom that comes from fearing God to guide us one step at a time. We can rely on the peace that comes from the comforting Holy Spirit to sustain us one day at a time. Let us walk in these daily.

God, I want to walk in your wisdom and comfort. Thank you for walking alongside us, multiplying us for your glory.

These retreats were created with a vision to hold space for women to connect with God and as a result themselves. What has been the most moving surprise is how guests connect with one another.Thank you, Jesus, for the women you guide to these weekends and the meaningful friendships that result from it.
