THOUGHT: God promises to renew us when we renew our focus on Him.
BIBLE: Let us strive to know the Lord. His appearance is as sure as the dawn. He will come to us like the rain, like the spring showers that water the land. Hosea 6:3
TRANSCRIPT: Hey everybody, welcome back to the Morning Thrive. The last couple of weeks we've been talking about awakening. I really believe that we're living in a time when God wants to get our attention, and just maybe, God may bring a spiritual awakening in our lifetime. So, what is God looking for? Well, we said last week, He wants to renew us; He invites us. He says, "Come, let us return to the Lord. We've drifted but He will renew us, He'll heal us, and He'll restore us again.
But what is that going to take? It's going to take repentance, and so last week we spent all week looking at what repentance is, what repentance is not, and what God is looking for from you and from me? Now we're going to turn a corner, and we're going to talk about what God promises when we will repent.
When you and I will turn back to him, God makes some promises and we're going to talk about what those promises are. In Hosea 6:3, it says, "Let us strive to know the Lord. His appearance is as sure as a dawn. He will come to us like the rain, like the spring showers that water the land." God wants to come to you like the rain. He wants to make some promises to you, and we're going to see what those promises are this week. All right! See you tomorrow.
