A little devotion time with Beth

This afternoon I sat in our living room re-reading some of the daily entries in my Beth Moore Praying God's Word Day by Day devotional. I started from the day my Sweet Hubby went to be with the Lord, November 9th. The following is the devotion for that day. Amazing, isn't it?

"When our hearts are hemorrhaging, never forget that Christ binds and compresses them with a nail-scarred hand."
"You, Lord God, are with me, You are mighty to save. You will take great delight in me. you will quiet me with Your love, You will rejoice over me with singing!" Zephaniah 3:17
And November 15th:

"Completely surrender your hurt to Him, withholding nothing, and invite Him to work miracles from your misery."
"Lord God, I am hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. I always carry around in my body the death of Your Son, Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in my mortal body." 2 Corinthians 4:8-10
And the very next day, November 16th:

"Perhaps the most profound miracle of all is living through something we thought would kill us."
"Father, help me to be confident of this, that He who began a good work in me will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6
November 19th:

"Christ never allows the hearts of His own to be shattered without excellent reasons and eternal purposes."
"Glorious Lord God, one day I will hear a loud voice from Your throne saying, 'Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them.' We will be your people, and You Yourself will be with us and be our God. You will wipe away every tear from our eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things will pass away. You who are seated on the throne will say, 'I am making everything new!' These words are trustworthy and true!" Revelation 21:3-5
"Lord God, help me presently believe, then one day see, that my present sufferings cannot be compared to the glory that You will reveal in me." Romans 8:18
And then this on November 24th:

"If God has allowed something difficult to happen to one of His children, He plans to use it mightily, if the child lets Him."
"Praise You, my God! Let the sound of Your praise be heard; You have preserved my life and kept my feet from slipping. For You, O God, tested me; You refined me like silver." Psalm 66:8-10

I'm clinging to the Rock...my God and my salvation.

Interesting how you closed your post for today. I have been working on for several months on an article, possibly book about clinging to God and His Word. The hebrew for cling is dabaq, which means to cleave, to adhere to as if with glue. I know I need to do that every day. Praying for you today.

Gigi said...

"...to adhere to as if with glue." Yes.

Hello Gi,

His Word is life. God's word is our life as we live in this earthly tabernacle, and God's word is our life when we go from this life to the next. All will pass away but God's word will endure forever! In Him we live and move and have our being both now and for all eternity!
