Are you layered up? You know, those things that hinder the voice and power of God in your life.
I think we can all think of times when we've put this or that before God, but I'm talking deep seated issues like Anger, Distraction, Pride, Impatience, Doubt, and Unforgiveness. They tend to stick to us like gum on a hot pavement.
But there's hope! God's desire for us is to walk with Him unhindered, and I believe that through this 5 week study, we will get a clearer picture of what that's supposed to look like.
In the first lesson, you and I are going to reflect on Superficiality, something I like to compare with that thin, paper-like exterior of the onion. It’s fragile and easily torn, having no purpose other than to keep the dirt away from the rest of the vegetable. It gives off an outward appearance of what may or may not be underneath, and often hides other deeper imperfections.
From there we go to Excuses, Pre-conceived Ideas and Dreams, Pride, and finally, False Humility. Believe me, it's not an easy walk. Matter-of-fact, even as I was writing it, I got my toes stepped on more than a dozen times!
The next 4 weeks take us deeper into the heart of the matter. We are able to glimpse into the lives of folks such as Job, Mary, Peter and King David as they, too, struggled with layers hindering their effectiveness and faith.
So what are you waiting for? Grab a pencil and a highlighter. Dust off your Bible and dive into this raw study directly from the heart of God. I don't think you'll be disappointed!
AND...don't forget to let me know what you think. I want to hear how God is impacting your life through the pages of this book.
