I live in a family of wonderful ‘techi’ people!!!! I constantly stand in awe… Needless to say for some reason I’m the untechi (is that a word??) one but I choose to believe I have other unique gifts!!!
I’m better, I hasten to add, much, much better than I used to be but I can still amaze my dearest husband at the things the computer does when I’m using it. I’ve lost count of the number of times he has said “I’ve never seen it do that before!! What did you do???” To which I truthfully reply, “I thought I just did what you said to do…..!!!!!” Enough said…
But I have discovered how to use my computer to store ideas and verses from the Bible. Previously I would have written these on various scraps of paper and then stored them away. But, a bit like a squirrel with amnesia – I could rarely find them when I needed them!!
A few months ago I decided to start keeping a note of any verse in the Bible that contained a promise and it’s been such an encouragement and blessing. It has given me so much fuel for praise and worship as I have used the words to thank my Father for who He is and all He has provided.
And I’ve been built up when I have personalised the words and taken them as ‘superfoods’ for my wobbly, hungry heart.
For example take Isaiah 41 v10 and v13 from The Message – when I hear Father say it to me as I read it aloud to myself sounds something like this…
Don’t panic Mildred…I’m with you – right now I’M here.
There’s no need to fear because
I’M YOUR GOD
I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady. Keep a firm grip on you.
Because I, your God, have a firm grip on you Mildred, and I’m not letting go
I’m telling you ‘Don’t panic’. I’m right here to help you.
This is just one example of the verses that I have stored away and read frequently, especially first thing in the morning.
You can take this and put your name in when you read it to yourself (preferably out loud) and then you can use the words to thank and worship God for every promise in it. Allow the words to feed you and become part of you, because they all belong to you!
2 Corinthians 7 v1 says ‘these great promises are ours’ and Father God will never break His word.
Maybe you already do this and have experienced the rich blessings Father has stored up for His children, and that’s so wonderful and so exciting! Because… you are then fuelled up to share, bless and encourage others you will meet today!!
Ask Father to show you who He has already arranged for you to meet.
You have the exact ‘superfood’ they need.
May God bless you and keep you today, may He make His face shine on you today, may He lift up the light of His countenance on you, and give you His peace today.
