I am sending this to invite you to journey with me during 2015 as I seek Jesus Christ in the Word of God. Starting with this email I will begin sending you (and anyone who requests to receive them) a daily meditation in God’s Word. My desire is to spur others to a continual seeking of Jesus through the word of God. God made it clear that we need His spiritual food each day just like we need natural food; yet so few find the time every day to think God’s thoughts. Or they often do not know how or where to start.
So if you want to come along for the journey and seek the Lord with me this New Year send back to me an email affirming that you would like to receive a daily (except Sunday) scripture meditation from me. If I do not receive an email affirming your decision to accept my communication I will not send one to you. Also, know you can stop receiving them any time you choose. My desire is to serve you and encourage your spiritual growth.
We will first visit Proverbs 2:1-5 as this is a concise description of how and why God desires us to seek Him and receive His word. Today January 1st we will look at all five verses. Tomorrow January 2nd and the following days we will take much smaller bites of this wonderful portion of the Bread of Life!
My son, if you receive (accept) my words and store up (hide) my commands within you, turning (inclining) your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for wisdom (insight) and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then (and only then) you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.
Observation: It is a personal communication between a Father and a Child (son). The father is very concerned that the son will grow spiritually.
Interpretation: It is a universal scriptural plan to seek God and know Him. It gives us the concise basic principles that are essential to know and seek God.
Application: I need to receive this word and engraft this process into a daily discipline of seeking Jesus Christ.
What is your take away?
Thanks for listening and I hope you will respond positively and walk with me through God’s Word. You may also want to send me comments, suggestions or questions. I promise will respond to each inquiry. If you want to share these emails with others or for me to include your friends on my email list please let me know.
