(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Hebrews 5-8)
There are days when spiritual Point B makes sense because I already understand spiritual Point A. Other days I wonder if I have just become a believer.
Accumulating spiritual knowledge takes a steady diet of Scripture reading and study. My concern for myself relates to the Scripture that insists that I be a, “doer of the Word.”
I know the Scripture, “Cast all your cares on Him.” I know that fear is of the Devil. But living it out and being mature enough to inject that truth into my everyday experiences seems so often out of reach.
I never consider myself mature. I certainly strive for it in His strength but I so often come up short. Often I know what to do but don’t live it out.
My life must be in constant union with God. It is so easy to detect separation. I yearn for there to be no separation.
“Lord, I am struggling to walk in stride with You. I want to keep up with You yet I am so easily distracted and discouraged. You are always within reach……..I am the one who creates distance. Forgive me. I need You every second. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and keep filling me. You are a great God!”
