Dare to boldly speak the Word of God!


 

🟥 Take Action

Get Clear:

Divided thinking is not beneficial. Commit to submitting to the One who is in control. James 4:7 Submit yourselves, therefore, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Put things in Order! Get Organized!

Paul writes in Ephesians 6:11-12 Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Let’s get prepared and see ourselves from both sides.


The enemy wants us to lord over one another as though we are supposed to subdue people. But that isn’t what the Word of God says! In Genesis 1:28, God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT!

🎧 Meanwhile: A Public Response to Internal Timing! A Season 7 REWIND Episode 

🔻🔻🔻🔻
 
In this episode, we are going to dive deeper into the meanwhile… What is happening outside our immediate orbit? Why does the Word of God always remind us to look beyond the present circumstance? We know our timing is not the Lord’s. Ecclesiastes 3:11 lays out this profound wisdom: ”He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.” 
 
 
God’s truth causes conflict. It is the tension at the intersection of the cross and begs us to choose a righteous response.” ~Torrie Slaughter
 
 
🔴 Tune In Every 4th Friday At 7:00 AM, EST to watchTalking on Purpose with Torrie the Podcast & Internet Show
 
 
🔴 Scriptures to Study: Genesis 37:1-11, Genesis 37:36, Deuteronomy 28:13, Mark 10:45, Genesis 18:7, Genesis 24:21, Genesis 28:10, Genesis 30:36, Genesis 31:19, Genesis 37:36


 
“Meanwhile the Midianites had sold him in Egypt to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, the captain of the guard.” Genesis 37:36
 
This Mentoring Session:
 
Meanwhile: A Public Response to Internal Timing, will take you on an adventure. One that I pray will lead you to meditate on God’s Holy Word! He is the giver of life, the epitome of love. He drives out darkness, gives hope to the hopeless, He sent the Holy Spirit to live inside us. God interacts with His creation; however, everyone will not experience His healing power. We can continue to intercede on their behalf. Pray for those who are suffering from the broken godly relationship. Send a text message reminding them that they can receive the gift of salvation and there is nothing they have to do but accept Jesus into their heart. You caring about the spirit of that person could make the difference. Don’t be afraid to reach out and be bold with your faith.

A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional Day 111

Written By Torrie Slaughter

 

🔴 Order in the Court!

If you have ever set the record straight to clarify your intentions, then today’s reading of Joshua 22 felt euphoric. The Reubenites, Gadites, and half-tribe of Manassah wanted to honor God with a physical symbol. They wanted to create a legacy and illuminate the promise of Yahweh’s blessing extending across the Jordan River.

BUT…

Israel assembled an army to fight against a perceived rebellion. (Joshua 22:11-12)

However, before declaring war in a land that God proclaimed peace, they held a conference. If the tribes could gather in an orderly fashion to discuss conflict, how much more responsible are we?

Acknowledge the Root:

There is a divide in many families, businesses, churches, and organizations because they lack honest communication. Following God is the only way we can obediently live a life of service. It is in the court of our minds, relationships, and actions that we bring glory to His name. 

The word ‘court’ is a verb and is defined as seeking to gain or achieve and have an alliance. A noteworthy synonym of court is a palace. Isn’t that interesting?

As you study today’s scriptures, I would like to provide affirming passages that remind us of God’s order:

God knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust, for He pities those who fear Him. Psalm 103:14

To remember God’s commandments and to do them. Psalm 103:18

Do not eat the bread of a stingy man, do not desire his delicacies. (Proverbs 23:6)

Do not speak in the hearing of a fool, for he will despise the good sense of your words. (Proverbs 23:9)

Apply your heart to instruction and your ear to words of knowledge. (Proverbs 23:12)

The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight. (Proverbs 4:7)

My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord. Psalm 104:34

While we wait on the Lord, do not allow the enemy to create chaos in your life. Planning your day with God will lead to discipline in many areas. Structure, order, and lovely behavior propels the message of Christ. What will others see if they want to be part of your inner circle? Is it time to talk to the Lord and bring order to your court?

*REWIND- SPRINKLED SEEDS

SHOW NOTES: http://www.ourgivenpurpose.com
👋 IN CASE YOU MISSED IT!

Welcome to today’s rewind mentoring session: Sprinkled Seeds! Take notes as you hear ideas that spark curiosity. We have an opportunity to listen and grasp spiritual things within mundane activities. Use the power of divine understanding to implement your system of action.  

 

🟥 Take Action

What is a seed? 

It is an embryonic plant in an outer protective covering. Nothing happens with the seed until it is placed in an area to develop. We can refer to the parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:1-9) to meditate. Where have you planted seeds? Have your roots begun to sprout? 

  1. Have we cultivated a community of empowered people to pursue their purpose within the Kingdom? 
  2. Do we employ individuals to build their ministries as a way of increasing Christ’s ambassadors? 

⇒ Read Matthew 13:18-23 and ask through prayer what seeds am I intentionally planting?

A Revelation?

Personal revelations is an enlightening or astonishing disclosure shocking revelations. Challenging society and standing firm will help us understand our mistakes, rebellion, and misguided attempts to control other people. We are destined to live a life led by God for His divine purpose. Remember who you are in Christ and the intention for which He made you. 

~Torrie Slaughter


Scriptures for Meditation:🔻 Matthew 13:1-9, Matthew 13:18-23

A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional Day 102

Written By Torrie Slaughter

Guiding Scripture:Luke 15:6 And when he returns home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, because I have found my sheep that was lost!’

🔴Found in Christ

What is a parable? According to Google it is a simple story used to illustrate a moral or spiritual lesson, as told by Jesus in the Gospels.

Scripture Says: 

Jesus told the disciples that the mysteries of the kingdom of God are unlocked for them to understand. However, those who were offended or repelled by His Words would not comprehend. (Luke 8:10)

Today’s Reading:

In Luke chapter 15 he presents three different parables all about the lost being found: the Parable of the Lost Sheep (Luke 15:3-7), the Parable of the Lost Coin (Luke 15:8-10), and the Parable of the Lost or Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32).
The sheep, perhaps led astray, was separated from the rest. The owner couldn’t remember where they placed the coin, and the son chose to be independent and lost his way.

We learn more in Matthew 25:32 which tells us that the Lord will separate the sheep from the goats as a shepherd does. Why? Sheep are more comfortable in a flock grazing on grass; they run if spooked or approached by ‘strangers’. Goats, however, are independent and often wander off to graze on anything they can.

The Conflict:

Jesus is a stark contrast to the (spiritually lost) Pharisees and other religious leaders because of His actions. He receives sinners, He invites them to listen to His words, He teaches them and rejoices when their lights shine with understanding. Jesus often offends the religious elite because their concern is the appearance of holiness.

Luke 12:47 The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows.

Ignorance Isn’t Bliss:

Our choices matter now! We can make decisions about how we press forward within the kingdom of God. When the Lord returns, only His opinion will matter. Unless we judge ourselves daily while in the situations, pointing out our sins and repenting, are we excluded from His harsh judgment. (1 Corinthians 11:31-32) However, this isn’t just lip service but a move into action. If the Divine Holy Spirit is urging you to return to God, seek Him through prayer. He will come near to those who draw near to Him. (Hebrews 7:25)
