Today is a day of worship–everyday is! We meet together to encourage each other and lift each other up. Don’t miss it!
Proverbs 7:1-3 My son, keep my words and store up my commands within you. Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye. Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart.
“The main thing is to keep the Main Thing the main thing!”
God’s Word is living and active (Heb. 4:12), which means that as we read His Word, the Spirit speaks to us. Then, during the day or in the watches of the night, He reminds us of why we read:
- He loves us with an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3);
- We are sanctified (freed from sin) by the truth of His Word (John 17:17);
- If we call to Him, He is waiting to answer us (Jer. 33:3)! Btw, that’s God’s phone number!!!
These are just a few of the things His Spirit whispers to us when we stop and listen. These verses are GREAT memory verses–at least, mark them in your bibles; make 3×5 cards of them; use post-it notes and put them on your mirror–do something to learn them! I’m sure that as you read, you will find a great many more that speak to you. 🙂
They will reveal to us the lies of Satan (v. 15) and keep us from the seduction of the temptress (v21). Instead, we will enjoy sweet fellowship with Him as His love, joy and peace radiate from Him to us and through us. It’s our greatest benefit that comes from being in His presence (and makes this world tolerable).
Today, let’s worship Him in Spirit and in truth and enjoy His presence in our lives.
