Listening for the Word of the Lord
A critical aspect of growing in faith is learning to listen for God’s guidance. This could come through reading the Bible, prayer, or even through relationships with others. Developing the habit of intentionally listening for the Lord’s direction allows believers to make choices that are aligned with His will and experience personal growth. Jemese emphasizes the significance of paying attention to God’s Word, especially when faced with challenging situations. She suggests that believers should turn to God for guidance rather than seeking it through worldly things such as drugs, alcohol, or unhealthy relationships. By being open to the Lord’s guidance, His followers can confidently make decisions that align with the divine plan and purpose.
Dependence on God
In the journey of Christian faith, depending on God in all aspects of life is of utmost importance. This might seem counterculture in the world today where independence and self-reliance are often promoted, but believers must remember that true security comes from trusting in the Lord. By placing full trust and reliance on God, believers can rest easy knowing that every situation is under His control. Dependence on God is not only vital in overcoming challenging circumstances but also in living a fulfilling life as His children. Jemese reminds listeners that dependence on God is a bold and powerful stance to take. She elaborates that being honest in professing one’s complete dependency on the Lord is a counterculture act. Jemese also cautions about seeking encounters with God and emphasizes that the Christian walk should be set apart, living as His chosen people through leaning on Him for stability and guidance.
Accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior
The cornerstone of Christian faith is accepting Jesus Christ as one’s personal Lord and Savior. This act of surrender signifies both obedience and devotion to Jesus, acknowledging that He is the only way to eternal life and a relationship with God. Believers who make this commitment experience a life-changing transformation that empowers them to live out their faith confidently. During the podcast, Jemese Lachel invites listeners who are ready to take this life-changing step to pray and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. She encourages them to submit to His lordship, let God work through them, and seek help from mentors and Godly friends to support them in their walk with Christ. This decision is the first and most crucial step towards a deeper and more fulfilling relationship with God.
