This Mentoring Session:
 
Define What is a grievance? It is a real or imagined wrong, a cause of complaint—a protest, notably unfair treatment. A grievance is a feeling of resentment over something believed to be wrong or unfair. Hebrew concordance, a grievance is trouble or mischief as done to others, and it is iniquity, misery, sorrow, and perverseness of the body or mind.
 
Discover Read Habakkuk 1:1-4
 
Describe We pray, then we act with the understanding we receive from prayer. Then we pray to be delivered from the circumstance with joy and praise to God for teaching us through His divine Holy Spirit. When we invest in beneficial intercessory prayer for others, God will use us to solve other problems.

🟥 Take Action

Clarify (Galatians 5:13, Philippians 4:11-12)

How are we intentional about seeking contentment?

Organize (Ephesians 4:29, Colossians 3:9-10)

What are we thinking about and how does it hold up to the truth of God’s Word?

Prepare (Matthew 11:28-30, John 15:13, Ephesians 2:8)

Who sees our remorse for our sins? Are we motivated to save face or submit to Christ by behaving with a godly character and repentant heart?


🟥 The dictionary defines Envy as a desire to have a quality, possession, or other desirable attribute belonging to (someone else)

 

🟥 Notable Quotables: 

“Envy finds socially acceptable ways of expressing personal resentment.”~ Charles Swindoll

Theologian Thomas Lea’s Five Dangers for People who Live Without God:

  1. Life without God stifles the prayer life. 
  2. It makes them a friend of the world and an enemy of God. 
  3. They neglect God’s will in their lives.
  4.  Rebelling against God produces insult and slander of fellow believers. 
  5. It produces people who plan their lives without seeking God. 

What Can You Do?

Challenge the adversary’s lies by asking God to clarify His plan. We have the Creator’s likeness. We’ve had it since God molded and breathed life into Adam and took Adam’s rib to create Eve. Remember who you are in Christ and the purpose for which He made you.  ~Torrie Slaughter

Are You In A Situationship with Fear?, the Podcast Part 2

SHOW NOTES:
www.OurGivenPurpose.com
👋 Hello, Person of Purpose!
We are excited you’re here! Elements of Fear is a mentoring series focused on our attitude towards the unknown. If you are new to the purposeful family, we welcome you! Please subscribe to this website for free email alerts updating you on what’s happening on purpose. 

 

 

Allow Our Given Purpose® to help you gain c.larity, o.rganize your thoughts, and p.repare to walk boldly in your purpose! Let us help you C.O.P. your purpose.

~Torrie

 

 


🟥The Message:

The Situationship with Fear…

Define your relationship with God, the Creator. Of what are you afraid? Is it this world, your friends, or the judgment of the Lord? The enemy learns from our mistakes even if we do not. He watches our posture before God. He takes in what we are willing to do to get ahead, get noticed, and feed off. The enemy knows that we will thirst for the water of people. He feeds our ego just enough to keep us looking to man for emotional health instead of God. That’s the cycle the adversary hopes you will keep circling for the rest of your earthly days.

Meditate plan mentally; consider: to think carefully about something.
Think carefully and consider God’s Word every moment of every day. He does not give us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and self-control. To be transformed by the renewing of our minds means we must do our work. Clarifying, organizing, and preparing to do our assignment each day takes strategic planning with God. 

 

 

🟥 Cycles by Jonathan McReynolds 

 

🟥 Take Action

Are You In A Situationship with Fear? Part 2 the Podcast uses Bible scripture to refocus and realign. 

🟥 Fear of Planning the Podcast, (Exercise)

 

Step One Clarify
Define your relationship with God the Creator. What are you afraid of? Is it this world, your friends, or the judgment of the Lord? The enemy learns from our mistakes even if we do not. He learns from our posture before God

 

 

Step Two Organize

Who or what has your emotional attention?

The enemy knows that we will thirst for the water of people. He feeds our ego just enough to keep us looking to man for emotional health instead of God.

 

Step Three Prepare

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

 

Take charge of your mental peace and productivity! Fight fear with the Word of God because He does not give us that spirit.

Daily Bible Study with Purpose

🔴 Suicidal Tendencies?!

 

Colossians 4:2-6 “Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. 3 At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison— 4 that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.
5 Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. 6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.”

 

 
 Extremely dangerous, hopeless, miserable, morbid, desperate, unhappy, or anxious tendencies, however, stated or categorized, still sums up a defeated attitude of having given up! While not classified as a disease, you can be sure that it is dis’ ease!
Just as a disease needs a cure, a vaccination, and medical attention, so does dis’ ease.  
 
 
 
 
During this Covid-19, we may not be surprised when we get the phone call or hear of family, friends, loved ones, and others who have contracted the disease and have not lived with so many deaths. Yes, it hurts, and yes, it is with compassion that we broke for even those we do not know. This disease may or may not have been preventable. But, what about dis’ ease? How do you handle the phone call telling you that a close family member or friend has committed suicide? Death is death!
 
 
When dealing with dis’ ease that has been made final, I have only one solution: to pray that they believed in Jesus Christ. Pray for all those who will mourn for the loss of life by their choosing. Pray that they were given every resource to have come to a different conclusion.  
 
Remember, these are challenging times. Reach out to the lonely and to those who live alone. You might be the person that they need to make a difference in their decision. Be vigilant!

~A Devotional by Diana L.W.Coleman

 

Psalm 24:4-5 “Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.”

Prayer: Lord, thank You for the people You have divinely placed in my life who speak holy truth, love, and words of wisdom. Give me a heart of discernment to know when You are using someone to speak instruction into my heart and my circumstances and give me the strength and courage to follow through with that advice, even when it’s hard. Fill me with peace in knowing that even if I take a wrong turn, Your purpose will prevail. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

🟥The Message:

What Are You Practicing,

What are you practicing? Is it an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat? Ahhh, that doesn’t sound like anything I want to immerse myself in…do you?

Meditate plan mentally; consider: to think carefully about something.
Think carefully and consider God’s Word every moment of every day. He does not give us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and self-control. To be transformed by the renewing of our minds means we must do our work.
