Are You A Conference Junkie?

Use the tools you've already collected.

Use the tools you’ve already collected.

Are you a conference junkie? Admit it. You know who you are. If there is a speaker or a conference within travel distance, you’re there. You’re there with bells on. You’ve bought the book, you record the teaching, if they let you, and you take notes like crazy. And then you are first in line for questions or prayer.

You get a lot of good information at conferences. You hear inspiring stories you don’t hear anywhere else. You meet other people equally excited about what’s going on. And then you go home. Then what do you do with everything?

Can I suggest that you don’t attend one more conference until you absorb everything you’ve already got? It’s like you buy a new tool everywhere you go and have a really nifty tool belt now, but you’ve never used it. The Bible calls this always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. (2Tim 3:7)

Stop for as long as it takes to meditate on what you’ve learned. If the conference was on hearing the prophetic voice of God, then settle down to hear Him. Use the teaching that you got and do it. Don’t add to your list of things you never worked out for yourself. Get the teaching, but then take those tools out and use them.

    I totally agree! I boycotted going to conferences for awhile because all the books, CDs, and DVDs were piling up. The past couple of years have been a meditative time with The Lord, asking Him what He wants me to study and use. Diana, keep blogging- you go girl!

      Grace! Now you have to go back through all that material and walk it out. That’s why you have it. It’s going to be awesome.
