Did I use “whom” correctly? I never know but it just sounded right.
God is challenging me to simpler thinking lately. Usually I’m for the bigger, newer, flashier idea. As of late, that doesn’t seem to be working. Church growth experts tend to do the same thing. “Follow the latest church fad and people will come.” But what does God say? Over the last few weeks I’ve read and noted these scriptures:
Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help,
who rely on horses,
who trust in the multitude of their chariots
and in the great strength of their horsemen,
but do not look to the Holy One of Israel,
or seek help from the LORD.
No king is saved by the size of his army;
no warrior escapes by his great strength.
A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
despite all its great strength it cannot save.
He has lost connection with the Head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.
So if man’s ideas and tools, apart from the Lord, are useless, and God is the one Who causes the body to grow, why am I not looking more toward Him? Why am I not spending more time on my knees?
Just a little challenge today for me from the scripture. I have continued to journal some since Africa. In my prayer time today, I looked back over the last few entries and God just brought it all together.
