I read a devotional today from Our Daily Bread entitled Where’s God. As I was reading it, I reminisced on how I never had to ask those worlds. Since I met God decades ago , He was always in my life. I mean I not only felt His presence, but He has shown His miraculous ability to solve problems just in the nick of time, again and again. He’s been very merciful and forgiving.
I couldn’t help but just meditate and give Him Thanks and praise for His faithfulness and His attention to me. I also wondered like Psalmist, whom am I that God is mindful of me. Why did God take such good care of me? All I could think of is because I’m His child and He loves me. He loves me so much that I never had to ask Where Is God.
Psalms 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
I try to read a devotional everyday. Some devotionals are short. When that’s the case, I read at least two of them. But after I would read at least two of them, I noticed the message didn’t really sink in. I’d be asking myself what did I learn today?
I remember a deacon that used to teach us, would have us read the Bible in small sections; like two or three sentences at a time. If we would read fast, he’d stop us. He wanted to make sure we absorbed and understood what we had just read and how we would apply it to our lives.
Reading small portions of scripture is like taking small portions of food and and chewing them well. I can really taste the flavors when I take small bites. Psalms 119:103 says “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
Like enjoying food, I can enjoy scripture and interpret what the Lord is saying when I take small savory bites.
