Sorry about missing yesterday! We had a very full day, and it's only going to get worse! YAY!
We've established that:
P is for Prayer
E is for Edification or Encouragement
Allow God's Word to encourage you.
Philippians 4:13says, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
Hebrews 13:5b says, "...for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
I am blessed to have a wonderful support network of family here to help me get through this trying year, but some others are not so blessed. However, if they are saved, they have the Holy Spirit living inside, and He is that same Strength that will enable them to do all things, as mention in Philippians. He will never leave!
I will be working with some other people in my classes and it will be my job to encourage them also. There is strength in unity-together will can get the job done.
R is for Reading
I know that I will have a LOAD of required reading in my classes, but I can't neglect God's required reading-The Bible! This is partially why I started using the blog to share devotions: I didn't want to neglect the very thing that will help me the most, as I often do.
II Timothy 2:15 says, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
Psalm 119:105 says, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
If I don't do my assignments, I will be ashamed when I receive a bad grade for my class. The same is true with our Bible reading. If we don't learn how to live correctly, and learn God's ways, we will be ashamed at his judgment seat one day. Oh, me!
TUNE IN TOMORROW FOR THE FIRST "S"!
