Do you think God does miracles today? What about all the suffering?
Check out the third summary page from my Bible study, Believing God. Click on the third entry in the right sidebar. May God add a blessing to your day.
You might notice that I have added a new page to this blog. It's title,"You believe in God, but do you BELIEVE God?, shows in the upper right sidebar. This is hopefully the first of a series of pages about one of my current Bible studies, Believing God.
Our Monday night women's Bible Study has begun this series by Beth Moore. One of the elements of the study is an active pursuit of increased personal holiness. Whoa! Sounds too grandiose, doesn't it? Not so. All it means is that we set a period of time (between me and God) to practice some specific, noticeable change in our life which sets us apart for God so that He will distinguish Himself to us in ways more wonderful and miraculous than we ever imagined.
Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you. (Josh.3:5)
So, in answer to my prayer, God put on my mind this morning to summarize last night's session in a new page on my blog and to do that for each lesson of this study on faith and believing Him. Oh, clever is our God! He knows how frightening it is to me to witness my blessings in front of my friends and acquaintances! But instead of being frightened, I'm finding a bit of excitement in the idea. I don't think you will mind finding God in my pages - especially if it helps me fulfill an obligation. Just be sure, if you are interested in reading this series, that you watch for new pages in the right side bar of Imagine This. (LOL, IMAGINE THIS . . . I'm actually doing it!)
As a memory aid in remembering to do our commitment, we are wearing a blue cord similar to what God asked Moses to tell his people to do.
The LORD said to Moses, "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'Throughout the generations
to come you are to make tassels on the corners of your garments, with a
blue cord on each tassel. You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the
commands of the LORD, that you may obey them and not prostitute
yourselves by going after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes. Then you will remember to obey all my commands and will be consecrated to your God.' " (Num 15:37-40)
Now, you tell me -- where are the corners of our garment? Oh well, we are just wearing the cord on our right hand until we fulfill our commitment.
