Lesson 5

26 Oct

Someone wrote this, and i read it…so here is what the person wrote…

I’m guilty of searching the Scriptures for a turn key solution, too.   I’ve memorized verses as if they were vaccinations against human frailty.

I mistake God’s word for a magic eraser for my insecurities and negative emotions.  God’s word is more daring.  He invites me to come to Him as I am.

We wrestle with God like Jacob did with an angel, clinging to Him until we hear an answer.  We can be impulsive and emotional.  Even in this, God will bless us.

We can be stressed out like Elijah, caught in the drought of circumstances.  God’s sends TLC: bite-sized food, sips of water and rest. We want to use our hands. God wants our hearts.

We can view our doubts and weaknesses as annoying emotions that keep us from God– or we can see them as the doorways to intimacy with God.
