I know it has been a while since we’ve been able to do a regular WSC, but here we are. I’m still posting the scripture that I’m memorizing for Torch Team. If you don’t already know, I am in a group called Torch Team, where we pray, worship, memorize scripture, and have community together. It’s all people from 8th-12th grade.
Recently we have been listening to Steve and Wendy Backlund talk about joy, belief, and declarations. I really encourage you guys to listen to them. If you want to learn more about them, just go to https://ignitinghopeministries.com .
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Romans 15:13
It’s such a powerful verse. This verse is really trying to get you to believe in the fact that you have a God that can fill you with joy and peace. You see where it says “in believing”? You need to trust and believe with your whole heart that God can make you be filled with joy and peace. If you believe in that, then you may abound in hope, because your belief gives you hope.
I was just reminded of something that Wendy Backlund says, “It’s better to have great faith in little things, than to have little faith in great things.” We are always trying to do great things. We want people to see what we have done and look up to us. But if it’s such a big thing, then we often have little faith. The reason it is better to do a little thing with great faith is because God doesn’t measure what we do in how great it is, he measures our faith in doing it. That’s what we want, because that’s what God thinks of us, and that’s what matters. Fear the Lord. It doesn’t matter if other people think that what we are doing is not great. What matters, is if we think about how great God says it is.
That’s pretty much all I have to say about this verse. There are lots of other cool things about this verse, but that’s just what I took from it. If you see anything that you think is cool about this verse, then please put it in the comments.
Before we go, I have a couple quick announcements / updates. I told y’all a couple weeks ago that I am going to help my parents with their business. I’m going to be helping set up their website, and their going to pay me to help them with that.
Your probably wondering what exactly it is that they do. Well, that’s why I’m happy to announce that on June 1st or 2nd, there will be a guest post on Ezra’s Everything Spot by none other than my father, Curtis. He is going to be explaining about our business. The reason we will be waiting a full six weeks before he can make the post is because meanwhile we will be setting up the website and many other things for the business.
The other announcement is that I will be doing a collab with Kaeyln. We haven’t exactly figured out what kind of collab to do, but we’re figuring that out. You should probably expect to see it by next weekend.
If you enjoyed this post, then be sure to smash that follow button if you haven’t already, so that you don’t miss out on any new posts. Thanks for reading! -Ezra
