Anyone recognize this study? There should be a few of you! I adore Beth Moore bible studies. She really challenges us to dig into scripture and learn. I feel like her studies have encouraged me to study further in lots of areas. Currently I am doing Daniel for a second time. It is SO good.
I have found a new love for scripture. I grew up in a Christian home. You know from our stories that we love and serve the Lord. I knew all the bible stories as a child and my folks say I had a faith from the time I was little bitty. I don't know what is happening or why at this time but I feel like I can't get enough. I keep thinking about the person I want to be. I can't do it on my own. I can't be the wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend that I need to be without the power of the Holy Spirit. There are a few verses that come to mind right now.
Romans 12:2 "Do not conform any longer 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."
Galatians 5:22-23a "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control."
Philippians 4:8 (New International Version)
8"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
I want a renewed mind! I want to think on things that are right, true, etc. I want to display the fruit of the spirit in my life. I am praying for scripture to get deep down in my heart. Not just in my brain. I believe the need for discernment is growing each day. I need to know scripture so I can quickly recognize the false doctrines of this world.
Just some thoughts from my heart today.
