Have you been starving your spirit?
Jul. 19, 2016
Summer can be a wonderful time of fun with your family. But it can also be a time of over-crowded schedules and to do’s. We can get so busy trying to have fun and relax that we neglect a time of true quiet and rest for our soul. Time alone with the Lord, in his word is life giving.
You would not think of depriving your body of food for more than a day but have you been starving your spirit? I would like to encourage you to take some time each day for the next 30 days to sit down with Psalms 119. Simply read 5 or 6 verses and spend a few minutes really contemplating what they mean. How they apply to you and those you love.
The Lord loves you and longs to have time with you alone, away from the distractions of the world around you. He longs to hear your heart and for you to hear from his. He is on your side!
We will be studying the book of Joshua this Fall. God was with Israel as they took the land he had promised them. What has God promised you? Are you faithfully serving and doing all you have been commanded to do? If so, prepare to see God at work around you today even when there are difficulties that lie ahead. You + God = VICTORY!!!
Psalms 119: 33-35 Teach me, O LORD, the way of Your statutes, And I shall observe it to the end. 34 Give me understanding, that I may observe Your law And keep it with all my heart. 35 Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, For I delight in it.
Joshua 1:9 …Be strong and courageous. Do not be fearful; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 11:15 “As the LORD commanded his servant Moses, so Moses commanded Joshua, and Joshua did it; he left nothing undone of all that the LORD commanded Moses.”
