Sony’s Thoughts: Random Reflections

There is so much on my mind right now that I’m not sure what to write.  One thing God is reminding me right now is the importance of, not just reading His Word, but meditating on it, truly grasping it. For the Christian, there is no such thing as standing still; we are either moving forward or we’re moving backward. For myself, I can’t afford to go backward. My flesh may not like the growth process but I have no desire to go back to the empty, hopeless life I used to live. I’m no longer a baby in Christ so I press on, expecting God to continue to lead me and guide me and teach me to hear His voice so that I can reflect Him on a daily basis.

I’m also asking God for a lot of wisdom right now. It’s hard for me to see far into the future but God sees and He knows His plans for me and, as we draw nearer to Christ’s return, I know it’s more vital than ever that my relationship with Him is strong and that I’m where He wants me, doing what He wants me to do.

Ken Hagin said that he never memorized Scripture but that the Spirit would always bring Scripture to His mind. God’s been faithful to do that for me too and  I pray He never stops. He knows what I need to read and grasp at which times. May I be faithful to slow down and listen when He speaks. May I not be afraid to step out in faith, knowing that He loves me. He sees my heart and, if my goal is truly to follow and obey Him, serving Him and not myself, He will walk with me, lovingly guiding me when I begin to get my eyes off the goal. What a loving Father I have! May I live each day, purposing to please and glorify Him.
