...not Chick-fil-nuggets! It's Wednesday, and in our house, that means biblestudy morning! This Beth Moore study has been wonderful so far. They always are. I've never done a "bad" one. But I'm ALWAYS amazed at how I can see God's timing so perfectly in each study. About how it's the PERFECT study for me at this time. That this is exactly what I need to be studying right now. We had a great small group discussion on our homework from last week. The video this week was powerful - just hit so many things right on the money for me. She talked about how the power of the Holy Spirit enables us to know things we wouldn't. That's part of Living Beyond Ourselves, as this study is called. That we can understand things that may not be concrete or black & white in Scripture. Because alot of life is like that. Should I take this job? Is this is the right person for me to marry? (to which Beth Moore said, "If you're already married, then YES that is the man for you!" - hilarious and TRUE!) Anyways, how do we know which decision to make? That is where the Holy Spirit gives us wisdom to know. So here are a few things that stuck to me today:
* Part of spiritual maturity is to cease equating HARD with BAD. And the opposite is true also - just because it's EASY, doesn't mean it's GOOD!
* Ezekiel 36:27 says "And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees..."
How I want to be able to be moved like that. To have ears to hear. To be able to perceive. To be able to know. To have that insight.
