To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Intercession by William McDowell
I remember a time when I first came to the Lord and how it felt.
I couldn’t get enough of hearing about Him and reading His word.
It was just AMAZING!!!
The words seemed to jump off the pages and I was so intrigued.
For the first time in my life I finally understood why my parents loved this God they had vowed to serve.
I had read the bible many of times;
but for the first time I was seeing theses words on these pages in this book with a feeling I couldn’t describe.
“I loved the Word of God.”
What!!! Who would’ve thought?
The stories were so beautiful and colorful. I could just imagine myself being there and experiencing life during that time period.
Jesus was my best friend. I would talk to Him, spend time with Him, sing to Him and just meditate on His word.
It was the best time ever.
But as the years have gone by along with distractions, I’ve realized that my study time has taken a backseat.
I mean I read a lot of plans on my bible app,
but when was the last time I actually read, sat and meditated?
When was the last time I’ve grown by what I’ve read?
When was the last time I’ve felt in love with the word?
I love God, I love salvation, I love being apart of the body of Christ.
But I’ve let distractions and fear block my view of who God is.
I’ve avoided the word because the word would tell me the truth.
And because I am so fearful of who God has created me to be, I began to distance myself from the word.
I was determined to live for God and sit in the pew. I had decided I didn’t want more.
Like me, have you distanced yourself from God and word due to fear, confusion, hurt, or any other tactic the devil uses to get us off track?
Now is the time to give everything you feel that you’re not, everything you are, everything you pretend to be and everything you want to be to God.
All the answers really are in His word. It’s our road map. It tells us who He is, It tells us who we are in HIM.
And without the word we can’t fight, we can’t believe, and we can’t live the life that God has planned for each and every one of us.
I will read and I will learn and I will understand who I am in Christ, because the Word of God is what transforms us from ordinary to extraordinary.
I am no longer content with the pew, because God has created me for so much more.
“I am destined for greatness.”
