Church Get Talking

`Britain Get Talking’ is an ITV Mental Wellness campaign to help families get closer. Anxiety and depression in children have apparently risen by 48% since 2004. but talking and listening can build mental wellness, so hence the encouragement to tune back in to the story in our own living room. These next two months, as you can see from articles elsewhere, we are focusing on prayer so with the above initiative in mind that expresses the priority and importance of talking, we want to encourage more talking too, so as well as talking to one another let’s seek creative ways as to how we can step up on talking to our maker. Maybe ask a friend to partner you once a week? Maybe include prayer in a text conversation? Maybe at the end of a family meal time give the whole conversation to God? `Church Get Talking’ Starts right here right now. Try Praying.

Does God ever say no?

  • God sometimes says ‘no’ for our good
  • God sometimes says ‘no’ as He has other plans
  • God sometimes says ‘no’ so that others needs are met
    Matthew 20:26-28: "Whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave; just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.'"  Colossians 1: 24, "Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake." 
  • God even said ‘no’ to Jesus
    Mark 14: 36, "Let your will (plan) be done, not mine."  Luke 22: 43, "Now an angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him."
  • We need to be God centred not flesh centred
    John 5: 30, "I can do nothing on My own initiative.  As I hear, I judge; and my judgement is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me."  

Conclusion

Romans 8:28, "God works all things together for good to those who love Him."
God's grace WAS sufficient for Paul, so it WILL be for us.
"The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law” (Deuteronmy 29: 29).

May we be like Jesus when He prayed, "Nevertheless not as I will, but as You will."
