Divine Note #61 - When God gives you an answer - Habakkuk 2:2 & Psalm 102:18

Written Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010, Posted Friday, Dec. 3, 2010

Habakkuk 2:2 The LORD replies: “Write down the message I am showing you in a vision. Write it clearly on the tablets you use. Then a messenger can read it and run to announce it.”

Psalm 102:18 This will be written for a later generation, and a newly created people will praise the LORD;

When you aren’t used to hearing from God, it’s easy to chalk things up to “good luck” or maybe you “were at the right place at the right time.” I have learned to write everything down that is inspired by God. Whether he brings something to my mind, when a Scripture jumps off the pages of my Bible or when he gives me messages through other people, I write everything down!

I always advise people to write the things that God has done in their life, to be prepared for those times in our lives when things are not going well. A written record will enable you to remember the good things that God has done in your life. Journaling also helps you focus your thoughts and it can also help you write down things you need to discuss with God.

I also share my messages for God to encourage others and to let them know that God is real and he is active in the world. It’s up to you and me to share our walk, so we can encourage believers and inspire nonbelievers. Write down what God says to you! Watch your life change!
Big God Hugs,

NOTE: I was inspired to pray for 31 people in December and write down my thoughts. As a result, I have recorded my December to Remember Divine Devotions on my other blog:  www.MyDivineJourney.blogspot.com. I invite you to read my daily devotions.

Scriptures for life

Compiled December 2011
These are a few of my favorite Scriptures. I cannot live my life without God and his word. I keep a 3x5 wire bound note diary of verses that pop off the pages of my Bibles. This helps me in case I need to comfort someone with a specific verse. Start your own collection!


Comfort

Psalm 119:76 Comfort me with your love, as you promised me, your servant.
Job 4:4 Your words have comforted those who fell, and you have strengthened those who could not stand.
Strength

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
