At the end of this, you should develop a strengthening faith capable of helping you faithfully endure anything, anytime, anywhere, because you know God is working for your good (Romans 8:28-32 Voice).

Proverbs can help us put the spiritual into our deep friendships. In our reading, we should identify the 5-7 qualities of “Deep Spiritual Friendships” we want to practice.

“Deep Strength” has nothing to do with our moral or spiritual performance but rather our passionate pursuit of God, which results in our weaknesses being turned into strengths.

“Deep Strength” is learning how to walk with God in such a way that we are strong from the inside out.

“Deep Change” is a dynamic and transformational experience of God. The result reaches deeper than superficial improvement. We become a different person.

When Jesus spoke, he described a vision. This vision was of a world changed by his kingdom, and those who listened were transfixed.

One of the most difficult aspects of walking with God is believing he will exert his power in and through our lives. We have an easier time believing in Harry Potter’s magic or the force in Star Wars than we do in the power of God.

We need “Deep Forgiveness” when we feel guilty after we have confessed our sin to God and, knowing God forgives us, confessed our sin to people so they can support us in our efforts to change.
