Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: 2 Samuel 1, Psalm 140, and Matthew 13.
My learning must not reach an end.
God has plenty to teach me and I will learn best if I have a foundation of learning in place.
Learning can involve things I shouldn’t do anymore as well as things I should begin doing.
I believe that if I am completely open to God, He will prepare me to do what He knows I can best do. My part is being willing.
I think of the many things that I have been involved in. Some of them have been worthwhile. Others I reflect on wondering why I felt the need to put so much energy into them. I must have God sorting out my priorities and I must be willing to be bold in whatever direction He sends me.
I have so many wonderful Christian resources handy to me. Will I use them or merely collect them?
God expects me to be willing to move forward with a solid foundation in place. Am I willing to do both? Each certainly has its own set of challenges.
My life must be fully surrendered to Him. I cannot spend any time away from Him. I must always walk in His light. No traipsing into the shadows!
“Lord, I want to get things right spiritually. I don’t want to miss anything that You want me doing or not doing. Guide me. Saturate me. Wash me and I will be whiter than snow. Get into my head full-time. I can think of nothing better to happen. I love You, Father.
Are you stuck in a learning-about-God rut? Are you willing to chase Him not sit on the porch and wait for Him to pass by?
