…actually typing this into here on the 8th but for backlog/record. I’ll date it the date I wrote it.
It is good God to enjoy you. I love seeing you drop things into place, showing where the next bit of the puzzle goes. Teaching me. Understanding how to get through to me. A fraction of surprise when in Creative Living Warwick starts talking about getting into the Bible as a spiritual discipline. There were given various hints and I intend to go back over them because there was some good stuff there, as yet I haven’t employed a particular pattern – but then that hasn’t ever seemed to work, it’s when it (reading) gets stale and tedious. The important thing being to sit down and actually get into the word in the first place. Which I have restarted and should have never stopped.
Anyway, Warwick was praying/asking us to think about which (spiritual discipline) was highlighted to us – that was pretty clear. Then in the middle of him praying I get the idea to look at Psalm 12. Figured I may as well. Ps 12:6 “And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times.
I was thinking about God’s word… so yeah, is important when for instance you lack the words to pray. Really God’s words are there in your face. Why not read? Then I read that verse and it jumped out to me, clear cut reminder.
Tonight read Colossians 1:24-29. Colossians – where I re-started Bible reading for no apparent reason. Anyway, (part of) Paul’s commission is to, “present to you the word of God in it’s fullness.”
God you are remarkable, the little things so easy to brush over when you know the general gist of the chapter or book. Small reminders of how you are working and playing out a sincre reality in my life. Thank you.
