At Knott Avenue Christian Church, our Senior Pastor Shane Womack, has been taking the congregation through the book of Job.
The scriptural truths from this book are enlightening and encouraging to me, as well as convicting as often when I am exeriencing any sort of hardship, I tend to get angry and demand my way with God. I tend to feel as though He just isn't listening to me, which in truth, that is far from the case.
This past year, I have been clinging to Scripture more than ever before. His words provide comfort, healing and respite for my often tired and restless soul.
"Your testimonies are my delight; they are my counselors." Psalm 119:24
The above verse was quoted today during service and I thought to myself, "Yes...This!"
God's word is delight. It is my ultimate Counselor. So many times I have reached for things outside of the Word of God in order to find a solution to my problem. Or solution for my life ha! And yet, God has provided His perfect counsel for us in the form of the Bible. And we as believers have the Holy Spirit that teaches us and corrects us, encourages and admonishes, loves and builds us up.
Why on earth would I want to go anywhere else for direction.
Yes Lord Your Word is my delight. A Lamp for my feet.
Has God's word encouraged you today? Please share =).
