Job 35 & 36; 1 Corinthians 7 & 8

"Lord, quiet my heart this morning and feed me from Your Word. I can't enter the battle of today without this vital preparation.
Help me even in the busiest of days to maintain this discipline of preparation. Amen."


Hijacked this prayer from the Oswald Devotion for today….want to BE prayerful today….to not worry or try to fix…to just PRAY……

1 Corinthians 8: 1 Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that we all possess knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. 2 The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know. 3 But the man who loves God is known by God.

So the whole of NOT knowing what I thought or think I know is OK….and You soooo know how I want to know…something / everything and the more I know YOU the less I know anything else save.... it all comes down to LOVE….simple and in it’s simplicity I complicate it over and over again…….quiet my heart this morning…….
