- If we want to steward what God has given us, we have to take care of ourselves—body soul and spirit.
- If we want to be able to pass on to the next generation what God is doing in us, we have to teach a value for both the natural and the supernatural. Truthfully, the natural and the supernatural can’t be separated.
- We must create a foundation that can sustain the grace that God is pouring out on you.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:23 says (emphasis added), “May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
- 3 John 2:1 says (emphasis added), “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.”
Like Jason said, he almost had a nervous breakdown himself because he didn’t know how to take care of his own needs. He had to learn how to find peace within before he could create a peaceful atmosphere in his family and relationships. I think this is something we can all learn from. How often are you checking in with your soul needs? Whether you’re in full-time ministry, have a family pulling on you
So today I want you to take some time to think about your legacy and what you want to pass on to your family. Then write down what you need to work on in your inner world so that you can make that goal a reality. I also want to encourage you with this thought for the week: if the natural and the supernatural can’t be separated, then taking care of your soul is a holy matter and should be treated as so. In other words, go do something to really treat your soul well with some extra loving this week! What do you do for self-care? And how do you see that playing out in the way your anointing flows out from you?
