1. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” - Hebrews 11: 1 (KJV) Many times, we get carried away with needs, the funny thing is that there is always a need for every season. Human beings can never run out of needs.
2. This is why it is important to have a wholesome perspective of God as your Father and Friend, not just as a provider. God is keen on blessing His children and He wants to meet all your needs.
3. He desires more for you and expects that your relationship with Him should be less transactional and more relational.

God wants to relate with you and let you have access to know the deepest parts of Him. Instead of getting overtaken by needs,
4. He wants you to be enveloped with
His love and wisdom. God is intentional about loving you, so reciprocate by being intentional about your relationship with Him.
5. Adopt a lifestyle of faith that has moved beyond "give us this day our daily bread" to "thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.
6. Confession:
I focus all my affection on God and refuse to be overtaken by my needs. My relationship with God thrives.

1. For many people, faith is a kind of audacity and that's where it ends for them. However, faith is beyond a force or audacity, it's a lifestyle. It's a way of living, thinking and acting. It comes through in the things that you do and your outlook
on life.
2. "And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you." - Luke 17: 5-6 (KJV)
3. Living by faith aligns your actions & thoughts to the word of God. It's rooted in forgiveness & love. You may want to exercise big faith like healing the sick & working miracles but the greatest measure of faith is in daily living-trusting completely in God's word & His love.

1. Can faith fail? "Whoever doesn't lose his faith in me is indeed blessed.” - Matthew 11:6 (GW) Faith is a one-time decision and is more than a blind act of trust. Satan desires to sift believers by causing their faith to waver and eventually fail in overwhelming situations.
2. Understand & remember that being in an overwhelming situation doesn't necessarily mean that you've lost your identity as God's own. In moments of doubt, the gift of faith is often challenged. You may conclude that you didn't receive faith, apply it correctly or that it failed.
3. This could have everything to do with God knowing what is best for you. Though you might have challenging times where your faith is tested, set your mind on Jesus who is the author and the finisher of your faith.

1. At its core, the Bible is about relationships- how our Father connects & relates with us & how in turn expects us to relate with each other. Relationships are life & need to be maintained. However, sometimes we use the "too busy" card to avoid keeping up with our connections.
2. Other times, life challenges cause us to
self-focus and expect everyone else to
make the effort to reach out. Some of us
have even become complacent because of
the lockdown, assuming our loved ones
are okay without really interacting with
3. When you don't make an effort to
connect, your relation'ships' will start to
sink or, in some cases, capsize.
You were created with love, by love, to
love and God needs you to be love' to the
people He sends your way.

1. Proof of sonship! When it's career day in schools, kids turn up dressed as footballers, police officers, sailors, scientists, lawyers, astronauts, etc. It is easy to identify the profession they
represent based on their outfit.
2. Similarly, many claim to be God's children. Yet they do not don the 'garments' that stand them out from the rest, one of which is LOVE.
3. 1 Corinthians 13:1-2 (NKJV) puts it aptly - "Though I speak with the tongues
of men and of angels, but have not love, I
have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.

1. The Connected Life. After making the all-important decision to become a part of God's kingdom, your next top priority is to demonstrate God's love. It should be demonstrated whether or not you think the beneficiary in question is "deserving” of your love.
2. Reaching out to people is an opportunity
to show the world who God is. How can you assist that colleague who is struggling to meet deadlines & deliverables; your neighbour's children who are home when they should be in school; the church member that you've not seen in a while?
3. Show genuine compassion and care for
others without expecting any favours in
I am a child of God - an embodiment of
His love. My love is His light to a world in

1. “Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes
up and it knows it must run faster that the
fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every
morning a lion wakes up, it knows it must
outrun the slowest gazelle or it would
starve to death.
2. It doesn't matter if you are a lion or a gazelle, when the sun comes up - you better start running." - Thomas Friedman. If you have the mindset of a gazelle, you will always be running from lions. If you feel like a lion, you will always be running after gazelles.
3. Some people have the mindset that people are to be preyed on, while some feel abused, neglected, and abandoned. However, Jesus was never a lion looking
for a gazelle to prey upon.
