We, as women, always want to know the plan. When we get down on our knees and pray, we continually ask God, “What’s Your plan for us?” God’s plan for us is simple—it’s that you would follow His son. But you won’t follow someone you don’t trust, and you can’t trust someone you don’t know.
God wants desperately for us to know Him. Jeremiah 24:7 says, “I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD.” The word “know” is used dozens of times throughout the Bible in this context—that the Lord wants us to have an intimate relationship with Him. We don’t need a plan, or an answer—we need a Savior.
Debbie Stuart, Director Of Ministry Initiatives at Hope For The Heart and a speaker at this year’s HeartStrong Faith Women’s Conference, declared her word of the year as “resilience”—being strong enough to come back after severe bending, stretching, and other adversity; irrepressible. What if we lived a life that was irrepressible? Every time the enemy tried to stop us from knowing the Lord, what if we just kept showing up?
Watch Debbie and Rebecca Carrell discuss what it means to know the Lord, and to keep showing up even when the enemy is working against us.
