Bible Challenge - "PROPHETS AND PROPHECIES 1"
Good Evening to All!
Before beginning our Bible challenge of Prophets and Prophecies, I would like to talk to y'all a little bit about what our Pastor talked about in church today and really made me start thinking.
I have changed the verse up top for a little while to remind me and others how important it is to remember God in all we do and say. Of course this is just a miniscule point of the Sunday School lesson, but while I listened to the rest, This is what I REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT. How conceited we are. We go around thinking "I did this" or I developed that". We actually have the audacity to think we did it on our own! Well, I hate to burst our bubbles, but if it wasn't for God, none of us would be here, let alone that the brains to do whatever it was we "claimed the credit or victory for".
While Psalm 19:14 is very important to me, if I continue to remember the above
verse, then the words of my mouth and meditation of my heart should carry on in Christ's essence. I mean, if I will remember that God created me, were it not for Him I would not be here, He is His breath that caused me to come alive. As long as I remember that, and remain grateful, honored, and privileged to be called a creation of God, and a "child of God", then the other verse should come naturally to me.
Y'all, I know that this challenge is easy. By giving the scriptures on a lot of them it practically gave away the answer. However, it is my hope that you will take the time to look the scriptures up anyway and read the context and background of that answer.
The purpose I am using these Bible Challenges is not only for fun, but to peak your interest into looking up scriptures and maybe even delving a little deeper into the Bible. I don't know about y'all, but sometimes, I intend on reading just a certain thing, but if my interest gets peaked before I know if I'm reading the whole book. I hope you enjoy it.
