Welcome to our new study!! I am so excited that we are beginning this journey together. Please comment so there can be conversation. At the end of today’s reading, Kay Arthur (K.A.) asks us to “Write down the words that come to your mind when you think of God”. Here’s what I wrote in my journal:
Wonderful, loving, powerful, sovereign, Father, comforter, just, and righteous.
When I was much younger, I dwelt on the loving side of God. Then I became more aware of my own sin and unrighteousness and I got caught in a cycle of constant repentance, discouragement and feelings of unworthiness – nothing but judgement. When I really understood His sovereignty and power, I began to fear and dread Him.
Finally, like dawn breaking, the Lord revealed to me His love once more. If any man be in Christ, He is a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17)…I am covered in the righteousness of Christ. I am not just a “sinner” anymore – because I have been given a new name: I am “redeemed”, I am “His child”, I am “adopted”, I belong to Him. I am my Beloved’s and He is mine. Dear Lord, I do love you so – thank you for making right the things that were wrong, including me.
Here are some points that K.A. introduced…these would be great to discuss:
Where do you run in time of need?
What comes to your mind when you think of God?
