Deep Confidence

Pray about your lack of trust in God. What areas of your life are you unwilling to trust God with, and how has this affected your desire to pray? How has it affected your desire to read your Bible?

Convincing the Confused

Jesus was sent by God to be the chief persuader. He was on a mission to convince, and in John 11:32-44 he is faced with grief, one of the most traumatic afflictions of faith any human being can experience. The sisters of Lazarus had watched their brother die when Jesus failed to arrive, and were plunged into deep grief accompanied by doubt. This grieving doubt had an emotional effect on Jesus as Scripture says he was “deeply moved” (John 11:33,38).

Confidence Turns the Tide

Jesus’s confidence was in God, so when people were fickle he remained faithful, which is why I think so many people found him attractive. We must read the scriptures with greater intensity to learn this confidence, so we continue to keep the dream of Jesus alive and build his kingdom, regardless of whether we are many or few, important or irrelevant, succeeding or failing, being criticized or praised.

Deep Endurance

At the end of this, you should develop a strengthening faith capable of helping you faithfully endure anything, anytime, anywhere, because you know God is working for your good (Romans 8:28-32 Voice).

Deep Power

One of the most difficult aspects of walking with God is believing he will exert his power in and through our lives. We have an easier time believing in Harry Potter’s magic or the force in Star Wars than we do in the power of God.

Deep Forgiveness

We need “Deep Forgiveness” when we feel guilty after we have confessed our sin to God and, knowing God forgives us, confessed our sin to people so they can support us in our efforts to change.
