I once shared the devotional "Our Daily Bread", produced by "Radio Bible Class" of Grand Rapids MI in the 1950's with my mom,dad, and sister on a daily basis. I grew up, strayed from the Lord and my daily devotional time. Eventually, absence from the Lord led me into alcoholism. I am a recovering alcoholic of two and a half years. Back in a Spirit filled church, this devotional was recommended to me. I love it! How sweet to spend time with Jesus, to grow in areas of spiritual weakness which renews my faith. I love how the various topics are spread through out the Bible, yet they are not just 'handy'. The references Sarah cites are found through out the Bible as she develops relevant topics and gives scripture to explain and back up what she says. The reader has to look them up. Good for returning believers.
I love this on Trust:
Trusting me is a moment-by-moment choice. My people have not always understood this truth. After I performed miracles in the wilderness, My chosen children trusted Me intensely- but only temporarily. Soon the grumbling began again, testing My patience to the utmost.
Isn't it often the same way with you? You trust Me when things go well, when you see Me working on your behalf. This type of trust flows readily within you, requiring no exertion of your will. When things go wrong, your trust-flow slows down and solidifies. You are forced to choose between trusting Me intentionally or rebelling; resenting My ways with you. This choice constitutes a fork in the road. Stay on the path of life with Me, enjoying My Presence. Choose to trust Me in all circumstances. Exodus 1 5:22-25 Psalm 31:14 Sarah Young is surely the Lord's servant.
