So, does this headline surprise you?!
Here’s why we can’t really trust coaching. (I know it will sound “churchy” but I need to say it.) We can really only trust God!
God is trustworthy!
Here’s what Jesus thought about coaching.
John 14: 16-17 says, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.”
Now is that time! The Holy Spirit is available to live within us!
When people are looking for answers and we as leaders give them what we think they should do, we bear the risk of becoming a mediator or “God-man” in their lives. This does not mean there isn’t a place for teaching - of course, there is, but coaches help people walk out what they have...
When I was learning about writing I was taught to treat each topic like a reporter would and ask all the questions: Who, What, When, Where, Why and How. Let’s look at this situation with those questions in mind.
Where is God in this?
John 16:32-33 “Listen to me; a time is coming when you will be scattered, each to your own home. That time is now here. You will leave me alone, but I am never really alone, because the Father is with me. I told you these things so that you can have peace in me. In this world you will have trouble, but be brave! I have defeated the world.
Jesus was referring to the early church, but the echo of His presence being with us remains throughout all time.
God is WITH us! That is where He is. He has not abandoned us.
He’s not worried,
He is not overwhelmed.
He always wants to use all things for good. (Romans 8:28)
How could this be used for good?
