This week we were blessed to have two key speakers, both delivering excellent messages. First, Kezia talked about how we should to seek the presence of God and a closer relationship with Him. She recounted the story of King David and his military victories, showing that these came from seeking a closeness to God, through a desire and having a heart for Him, not through his strategical abilities. Secondly, Danielle spoke from Matthew 18 and the importance of forgiveness in our relationships. God forgives use countless times through our lives, so we should follow this, and offer our own forgiveness. But also, if we hold on to a pain caused by another, then this can cause us a lasting hurt that we may not be aware of, closing our hearts to all the joy that God has to offer.
We should pray for Jesus to soften our hearts to hear from Him and reveal any issues and be ready to respond. Jesus is the healer and forgives all our sin and so we can forgive others. So as we go into the next five years. let’s go keeping close to God, seeking and knowing His presence and walking in good relationships not only with Jesus but with the people around us.
