Wise Wednesdays: My Quiet Time Focus this Week

Hearing

The study my Sunday class is doing on Romans 12 is becoming an intricate part of my journey in full surrender.

Bible Reading

Acts 9 and 10

Studying

Acts 9:

Summary:

God physically stops Saul’s murderous plans in his tracks and introduces him to the gospel. Through visions God leads the right people: Ananias and Barnabas to minister to and guide Paul. Much to the surprise to everyone, including Jesus’ disciples, Paul begins passionately preaching the good news, just as passionately as he had opposed it.

How does this apply to me?

That same power is offered to all who believe. The requirements are to believe in Jesus, that he rose from the grave, and he sits at the right hand of the father. His will happens no matter what, even if he has to blind us, or derail my agenda. I am to surrender to his will, above my own and his glory is revealed through becoming a living sacrifice.

Memorize:

Romans 8

Meditate:

Psalm 46:10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Romans 12:1Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

I lost my son to suicide. Each day since, I commit my day to turning the page and continuing to write my story. There is no deeper grief, but I know too, that there is no greater hope than bringing life out of death. I offer each page to you as a testimony that there is hope for abundant life!
