Moments with God
New Testament Bible Reading Plan
I lie in the dust;
revive me by your word.
I told you my plans, and you answered.
Now teach me your decrees. Psalm 119:25-26
I get tired some times…honestly, I get tired a lot of the time. Tired of the daily grind! Tired of trying to stay positive! Tired of making pictures and thinking of new and fresh ways to encourage others to stay in the Word. Tired of keeping my house clean! Tired of negotiating peace treaties between members of my family! Tired! Tired! Tired! Do you ever feel this way too?
I have good news and it is found in the 25th verse of Psalm 119!!! Staying in God’s words revive’s us! It refreshes us and gives us hope to rely on God’s strength, not our own. One thing I know to be true, I can do nothing without Him! I think reading the Bible can bring refreshment to our parched souls.
I need to be revived right now!!! I need to take a long cool drink from the pool of refreshment found in today’s reading assignment – Mark 13.
“But when you are arrested and stand trial, don’t worry in advance about what to say. Just say what God tells you at that time, for it is not you who will be speaking, but the Holy Spirit.” Mark 13:11
“You, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know when the master of the household will return—in the evening, at midnight, before dawn, or at daybreak. Don’t let him find you sleeping when he arrives without warning. I say to you what I say to everyone: Watch for him!” Mark 13:35-37
