The scripture for today is Luke 9:43, KJV.
“And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they wondered everyone at all the things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples, let this sink in."
Jesus was so wise to say this. Often time when we hear or see something regarding God/Jesus, we just read or listen, we don't ponder. We need to take time to think about what was just said or read. We are in such a hurry these days. We need to STOP. THINK. and then ACT if it applies.
The message may be for us or someone else who really needs to hear the Word.
The next time you listen to one of either Pastors' sermons, take some notes, you have got a bulletin to write on. I carry a book to church for notations or words that are said with great relevance to me or what I do. I am a nurse, and some words are just perfect for someone I care for in the long-term home.
Sometimes I just reread them for myself, over and over. God works through my notes all of the time. No matter what the time is, I always get the right word.
That is not a coincidence, it is a God moment. Don't miss out on those precious times. Stop, think, and act.
Lord, help us to listen to your messages to us through your written word or someone's spoken word. Don't let us miss out by being too busy to really listen. AMEN
