Radiant Happenings! April 25th

What a BLESSED service we had with Brother Jesse Duplantis this past Sunday! And such a great WORD the Holy Spirit spoke through him! What was something he said that ministered to you? When the Holy Spirit highlights something within a sermon like that, it is good practice to meditate on it during the week!

Now for this week's verse in Proverbs 2:

"Then you will understand righteousness, justice, and fair dealing [in every area and relation]; yes, you will understand every good path." Proverbs 2:9 (AMPC)

When God's children don't walk in obedience to Him, they hinder Him from protecting them. How? By rebelling against His principles and laws of wisdom. Verse 9 tells us what the outcome will be when we put ourselves in a position to move with God instead of against Him. 

You have to stay in agreement with Him. He won't change from His way in order to agree with you, even though He loves you. He can't change because He's right!

Listen to what the Kesuvim / The Writings (Mishlei/Proverbs) on pg. 17 say about verse nine:

Vs. 9 "Then you will understand righteousness, justice, and fairness. Once you see that Hashem protects those who serve Him sincerely (v. 8), you will strive to develop a sense of what is right, just, and fair (Radak). Hashem will help you accomplish this (Metzudos)."

Now, here’s a look at what is happening this week into next with our Radiant groups!
