Just did some blog rearranging today and came across a post I wrote almost 8 months ago on faith. It seems that some things remain constant. Like my periodic understanding that what I lack is sufficient connect time with God.
It’s becoming harder and harder for me to ignore the message I have been receiving lately. Turning to God is the only way to do anything good. It’s imperative to my soul’s survival.
The K-Love’s Encouraging Word Bible verse of the day for today:
2 Peter 1:3 – By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.
Their “deeper look” into the verse comes to the same conclusion that I have lately:
“Sometimes it seems impossible to conquer sin. You try and you fail. How can you become victorious over sin? Get to know Jesus better by praying and reading his Word. He’ll help you grow.”
It isn’t enough to have read the Bible at one time, and sort of remember some verses here and there. It isn’t enough to just hop into a pew on the weekends. It honestly has to be as regular as mealtimes. There are so many analogies in the Bible comparing Christ to food and water. This cannot be a coincidence.
Psalm 34:8 – Taste and see that the Lord is good. O, the joys of those who trust in him!
