Takeaways from the Episode


Be attentive to the voice of God in every season to see what he has to say. When you are considering a major life transition follow his voice and leading in the small and simple things he asks you to do. He may have you start with a simple conversation, which will lead to something else. Follow the voice of God.


When God brought the Israelites into the desert he called them there so they would know they belong to him. When you are in “desert” seasons don’t forget to depend on God and delight in him. In those seasons God is often teaching us to learn to put our relationship with him first which will benefit us so much more later.


You are always going to move toward whatever your hope is in. Is your hope in your next ministry event or in Jesus? If you are hoping in ministry success, then that is what you will seek after. If you are putting your hope in Jesus, then that is what you will seek after
