and it's BETH MOORE! :D This one's been around for a while; it's called A Heart Like His: Seeking the Heart of God Through a Study of David. We've just started it, really; last week was the first video, and today ended the first week of homework.
I want to share the following with you; it made a HUGE impact on me this morning when I was reading it, and I really feel like some of you can cling to some of this.
Do you approach every circumstance and conflict as a member of the army of the living God? Do you continually regard God as "able"? Is He not only the Lord Almighty on the page but the Lord Almighty on the pavement? Do you stand in His Name? Our victory rests not on faith in our spirituality. Our victory rests on faith in our God. We're often intimidated in battle because we are uncertain of our faith. We must remember we don't stand in victory because of our faith. We stand in victory because of our God. Faith in faith is pointless. Faith in a living, active God moves mountains. Moses acknowledged Jehovah as the living God and led multitudes to freedom from slavery. Joshua acknowledged Jehovah as the living God and led multitudes into the promised land. Daniel acknowledged Jehova as the living God and the angel shut the mouths of lions. You serve the same God. Are you allowing Him to live smack in the middle of your life?

I'm praying that we will ALL live in the faith in our LIVING, ACTIVE GOD. Oh, dear one, if we can actually catch that understanding!!!! Dearest Father, PLEASE help me to do exactly that - allow you to LIVE in the middle of my life. Burn through my life, Lord, until You can be CLEARLY seen in it!
