How many of you could relate the the “lesser loser life” that pastor described? I can honestly say that fear, self-doubt, and self criticism have been my enemies for much of my life. I have to fight them almost every day. Alone, I wouldn’t do a very good job at silencing those things, but with God…oh yes with God and His Word, those fears and all that negative ugh stuff is overpowered. Therefore I can move forward trusting God with what I know, not how I might feel in certain moments. My thoughts might tell me I have a “lesser loser life,” but I know that’s really not true.

Don’t forget to read Elisha’s story from the Bible this weekend. Reading this will prepare you for what’s to come. “In each chapter that follows, we’ll look through the lens of different experiences in Elisha’s life. Through his example we’ll discover what it means to be obedient to what God is saying in our specific situations, knowing that obedience to God’s voice is the only definitive path to greater.” Elisha’s story is found in 1 Kings 19:19-21, 2 Kings 2:1-9:13, 2 Kings 13:14-21.
