Love God in Silence
The other morning in my devotions God spoke to me. This is what he told me:
If you can't get under what God has put over you then you'll never be able to be over what God wants to put under you
-- Adrian Rogers --
I stand in need of prayer. Those who have met and gotten to know me know how much I struggle with this. I hate this flaw in me but I have come to realize that I would never have a relationship with Christ today if it weren't for my past. That part sounds so weird.
Isaiah 33:2 (personalized)
Lord, be gracious to me; I long for you. Be my strength every morning, my salvation in time of distress.
Early the next morning I was listening to a message from a woman's conference and this is what I took away with me from it ...
When I become harder at heart I have a decreased appetite for God's word. That brings about an increased shallowness. A hard heart is easily offended. My hard heart sets my husband up for failure. Forcing myself to focus on Christ is the only cure.
I know that the verses God wants me to learn and apply to my life are ...
1) A soft answer turns away wrath,
But a harsh word stirs up anger.
2) The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly,
But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.
1 Timothy 2:11
Let a woman learn in silence with all submission.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.
The last one is a verse you will always find attached to my name. I kid you not! I bought a bookmark with my name, I saw a plaque with my name and every time that verse in Psalms 19:14 is written on it!!!
