To my dear married sisters or planning to get married sisters, Peter devoted more words for instructing wives in marriage, but he packed a single, pointed verse to husbands with a lifetime’s worth of practical wisdom. In all, verses 1-7 provide the basic outline for a healthy marriage. Difficulties in a relationship can usually be traced […]
Ever feel like you’re stuck in rut? Like your numb? Like you’re dead inside? It’s so discouraging and debilitating isn’t it?
She is not you! and You are not her! So sis, stop comparing yourself to her!
Never had Proverbs 16:9 become so evident in my life like it did in 2020. At the beginning of the year, I had made lists, goals, agendas and appropriated a specific timeline to accomplish my vast list of future accomplishments. How God must have chuckled as I vigorously wrote MY PLANS/GOALS and probably more tickled […]
When it comes to standing on God’s Word. Be Brave: ready to face danger for a cause. Be Relentless: ferociously constant. Be Resolute: firmly set in purpose. Anchor your place ladies.
To sustain our spiritual appetite, we must cultivate a heart that seeks God. For it is the sincere, heart seeking of God that will keep our feet from going astray (v.10, Prov. 4:23). The heart that seeks God will be directed by the Holy Spirit to see God in every aspects of life; desires to learn more and about God; and develop an honest and intimate fellowship with God. But how can we cultivate a heart that seeks God? By spending time in God’s Word, doing what God’s Word instructs, and delighting in God’s Word.
Dear Woman of God,
The Psalmist cries out to the Lord, “Oh, that my ways were directed to keep Your precepts diligently’ (Pslam 119:5). He desired to be lead and instructed by the Lord in order that he may keep the Lord’s precepts. As we move on to Pslam 119:6-8, we see how the Spirit works when we cultivate an appetite for God’s Word.
Dear Woman of God,
Yesterday we read in Psalm 119:1 that the undefiled are blessed. We also made the distinction that undefiled does not mean sinless. It means seeking God with a whole heart. Today, the Psalmist continues to untangle the necessities of deepening our desire to know God and His holiness in Pslam 119:2-5 by describing the character of the God-fearing person.
Psalm 119 is known to be the longest Psalm. However, this Pslam also portrays the passionate desire of the Psalmist to intimately know the Word of God and his hunger for God’s holiness. As women of God we should desire this intimacy with God and His Word as well. This means we should actively and intentionally pursue God’s Word. This is the purpose of the Psalm 119 Devotional Series.
Idle word” means a “word that accomplishes nothing neither in ministering grace or instruction to those who hears it.”As I read that meaning, the lightbulb slowing turned on and with it absolute horror! I finally got it! God will judge my every word (oral & written) that has accomplished nothing. Flashes of conversations flooded my thoughts – moments of unguarded conversations; things I’ve written on social media and different platforms; times when I’ve lied; the list goes on. And if God judges my small talk, how much more will he judge my words that were deliberate?!
