Enchanted But Unchanged

The following devotional, from Daily Thoughts for Disciples by Oswald Chambers, burdened my heart this morning. Individuals who profess to be saved yet have never had a desire whatsoever to read the Bible, hear God’s Word preached, be among God’s people, etc. are greatly deceived. Just as a newborn baby hungers for milk, so a person who has been born again by repentance and faith in a Christ will hunger for the “milk of the Word”.

However, just because a person does attend church faithfully does not mean that individual is saved. Just because a person may even delight in hearing God’s Word preached does not guarantee salvation.

I am struggling with knowing what else to say in this post. I pray that those who read this will do so with a receptive heart…

“And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.”

‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭33:31‬ ‭KJV‬‬

I Am Soooo Blessed!!

Taking a moment to brag on the Lord, folks!! A few weeks ago, God allowed me to win a music cd on KNVBC by answering a Bible trivia question. It’s not the first time our family has won a cd so I knew a RANDOM cd would be mailed to me in a few weeks.

Meanwhile, there was a new cd that we were aware of – a joint effort by Faith Music Missions and Bible Truth Music and recorded at Faith. It was just released a few weeks ago. The girls and I had heard a few of the songs on Faith Music Radio and, well…we really, REALLY wanted to get the cd. I asked the Lord, if it be His will, to let that particular cd be the one I received. The package came today and as I opened it, I prayed again.

Folks, when I saw this…

my reaction was….ummmm….not quiet. I scared the girls half to death (they told me later that they thought I had seen a mouse). Unfortunately, one of them flung the cup of tea she was drinking…to the point of it going up her nose. 😂

THIS “random” cd is the one I prayed for!! God not only heard my prayer and blessed me with it – He chose to do so on a day that I really needed a “hug” from Him.

Thank you, Lord – for not just a hug today but a big ol’ bear hug! As the title of this cd reflects, I truly am SO BLESSED!
