I was reading in 1 Corinthians 10 for my quiet time with the Lord on 9/26/11. The children of Israel had experienced all of God’s blessings and provisions, as well as his guidance, leadership, and protection in bringing them out of slavery, and yet God was not pleased with them because they did not obey him. They wanted the blessings of God absent of obedience. Their lives are examples for us to keep us from setting our hearts on evil, and from becoming followers of idols, instead of followers of God. May we set the right kind of example of God’s love. When in The Stillness / An Original Work / September 26, 2011 When in the stillness Of this moment, Speak to me, Lord, I humbly pray. Be my desire, Set me on fire, Teach me to love always. Help me to walk in Fellowship with You, Listening to You; Sit at Your feet. Whisper Your words to me, Oh, how gently, Guiding me in Your truth. While we are waiting For Your blessing, Lord, in our hearts Be King today. Help us to live for You ev’ry moment, List’ning to what You say. May we not stray from Your word within us, Help us obey You, Lord, in all things, Walking each moment, Lord, in Your presence, Our off’rings to You bring. Help us to love You, Lord, our master; Be an example Of Your love, Helping the hurting, Lift up the fallen, Showing them Your great love. Teach them to love You, Follow You always, Bearing their cross and Turning from sin; Walking in daily Fellowship with You, Making You Lord and King.
