Good Day, Precious Family:
This morning, the Holy Spirit put on my heart the importance of having a teachable spirit.
I have had a lot of practice with being stubborn. One could say that at a certain time in my life, I was an expert at being stubborn and hard-headed, especially where God was concerned. However, the closer and more intimate my relationship with God became, my desire to please him grew.
As I matured in the Lord, and in life, I realized the lessons God was trying to teach me were important. The lessons were important not just for the present moment but also for the future.
I learned that the quicker I obeyed God, I was able to move through my lessons and trials with greater ease and clarity. The greatest and most humbling lesson I learned is that sometimes the lesson is not even about me (go figure).
Sometimes, the lesson I’m learning is for others who are watching my life. Whether we know it or not, people watch our lives. They watch how we respond to certain situations and scenarios. We are the Lord’s billboards. What does your billboard say about you? What does your billboard say about God?
New International Version
4 Show me your ways, Lord,
teach me your paths.
5 Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
6 Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love,
for they are from of old.
7 Do not remember the sins of my youth
and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
for you, Lord, are good.
Today’s worship song comes from Vineyard. As you listen, please do so with a meditative heart.
May God bless you as you grow in wisdom and knowledge of His will for your life, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
I love you all with the amazing and everlasting love of Christ, our Savior.
