In life, it is always about balance. Anything done to the extreme usually ends up devastating or disastrous, history would have taught us that. Balance is exactly what I have learned in church and from the teachings from my Pastors in Heart of God Church.
My Pastors taught me how we need to run with the horses.
“If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you,
Then how can you contend with horses?
Its so important that we need to have perspective in life. Life will get busier, harder and more fast paced. Run with the horses, do not just run with the footman. We got to pick up our speed and not be weary at where we are and what we are doing. If we are tired/ discouraged when we can’t cope with church and exams, how are we ever going to cope with work and church or when we come into difficult situation. Life isn’t going to get any easier, this race is a long one. Perspective. Our destiny is not with the footman, we run with the horses.
My Pastors also taught me how we need to go under our fig tree, under the presence of God in worship and prayer. We need to spend time, set aside time in our busy life to go into the presence of God. Its the presence of God that changes life, it changed mine when I stepped into Heart of God church nine years ago. Pastor How shared how it is no point having the state of the art facilities without the presence of God, great lightings without the illumination of Christ.
“The price of God’s Presence is time.” – Pastor Lia
I’m so glad that there is such balance in the teaching in heart of God church, in church we are progressive, forward looking and we run with the horses. Yet we are not obsessed with serving and ministry that we forget about setting aside time to be in the presence of God. We have a cutting edge church with a strong presence of God.
