Good evening everyone...I hope you had a nice Thursday! It's so good to be back with you this evening, after a very busy day!
Anyways...I was thinking on the Bible verse for this evening and I came across this one in Joshua 1:8...and it became a reminder to me, as to how God has used His word, to bring me through many tough times in my life. Over the years, I came to see that meditating on God's word truly does keep us closely connected to Him...and even helps us to feel more distant, from the problems we may be facing at the time.
Quite a few years back, there were some moments in my life, when I was laid up quite often, from one knee surgery after another. While my husband was at work, I would get deep into God's word and even write, from what God had laid upon my heart. I also learned over time; that when I was meditating on His word; then there was no time to focus on what was happening around me. Before I knew it...I began to see the Bible, as my survival manual and as I look back on those times, I can actually say that God's word was what saved my life, during those hard and difficult times.
In the past, I've had people say to me... "I wish I could have a connection with God, like you do?"...and I would respond... "Anyone can...but it's up to them." In other words...are we going to choose to connect deeply with God and His word...or the problems we're facing. We might as well realize that the problem is only going to keep us distant from God and His word; so I would say that we need to get deep within God's word and focus on what He is saying to us, rather than what the problem may be trying to convey to us.
No matter how you may be feeling this evening...or no matter what you may have walked through in your day...just know that you can find a loving and compassionate God, who will care for you...simply by connecting with Him, through His word...the Bible. When we choose to look for the things that bring a good report into our thoughts...then one thing I know...the God of all peace will be there too...Amen!!
As we close this time together, I pray that you will find some quiet moments in your evening, to get alone with God...before heading to bed. Let His word sink deep within your heart...to heal, renew and restore you; to what He longs for you to be...especially during the difficult times!
Have a great night of rest everyone...and I pray that God's word will become a soothing remedy, for your hurting heart! See ya tomorrow!
Goodnight...and God bless!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
