Feeling a bit parched? Searching to quench that thirst with an iced tea or Diet Coke? Dive into the Word for real refreshment!
I am diligent in my Bible reading and am often rewarded by God's speaking to my heart through particular scriptures. I pause and sometimes even write them down. The reflection usually ends there, however. This year, I would like to pursue the verses that God lays on my heart by pondering how He wants me to apply these verses in my life.
Here are the verses that spoke to me this week:
Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still." Then the LORD said to Moses, "Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on." (Exodus 14:13-15 NIV)
- "Stand firm" in your faith in the Lord when fear and worry invade your mind. Repeat to yourself, "The LORD will fight for you."
- "Be still" when you are tempted to run ahead of God. Pray to God for guidance and discernment of His will and allow Him room to work in your life.
- "Move on" once you receive His guidance. Don't become stagnant in a pool of fear but keep going in confidence that God is on your side.
I would love for this blog to be a community spring where we can all share and partake of one another's jars of living water. If particular verses spoke to you during your Bible reading and devotions this week, please post these on your blog, along with how you see God leading you to apply them.
