Feeling a bit parched? Searching to quench that thirst with an iced tea or Diet Coke? Dive into the Word for real refreshment! I try to be 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.
- Do we put up walls of our own making to protect ourselves from being hurt, while forgetting that Christ calls us to suffer for Him? (Romans 8:16-18)
- Do we try to quench our thirst with physical water while forgetting that it is Christ and God's Word that truly satisfy our craving? (John 4:12-14)
Making preparations from our strengths is not wrong; we simply must remember that those strengths are from God and to look to Him.
So, what verses have spoken to you this week? Post those verses on your own blog, along with how you see that God wants you to apply them in your life. Then, provide your link below so that we can drink from one another's wells of scripture.
