Lesson 1 -- third quarter 2011
June 5, 2011
Do I believe the promise of God's presence and power for doing God's bidding?
Do I believe God will do as He says when He gives me a job to do?
"Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon" -- how much faith and effort am I willing to expend in order to achieve the conquest God promises?
Am I prone to stop the conquest before the job is done, so long as I've gained enough to satisfy myself?
"I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee" -- if I believed God were saying that to me, what part of my divine job would I assume I couldn't do?
"Do according to all...which my servant commanded thee" -- will I exercise the strength and courage to follow through with such a divine charge?
With which of God's adversaries am I content to make peace?
Which portions of God's promised inheritance am I willing to leave unclaimed?
