All night, the devil reminded me of every time I felt like an outsider, awkward, unsure, abandoned, ignored, and alone. Normally, I journal about those moments. God told me to write about the times I was clever, ingenious, smart, relaxed, and laughing instead.
“God repeatedly instructed His people to write down what He told or showed them, Exodus 34:27; Deuteronomy 27:8; Jeremiah 36:2; Habakkuk 2:2. In fact, after His people were delivered from bondage in Egypt, He had them keep a written record of the things He had done for them so that whenever they faced an intimidating enemy, they could review the records and remember God’s powerful hand and loving guidance in their behalf, thus building their faith as they faced new obstacles and difficult adversaries.”“Write All the Words”
The Founder’s Bible
The Origin of the Dream of Freedom
Jeremiah 30:2, “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, ‘Write all the words which I have spoken to you in a book.’ “New American Standard Bible
These are some of the things I wrote down this week:
- His desire will be satisfied in the hill country, Jeremiah 50:19.
- God is a God of recompense, Jeremiah 51:56.
- Take into your heart all My words; listen closely, Ezekiel 3:10.
- They found grace in the wilderness, Jeremiah 31:2.
- They will walk by streams of water on a straight path, Jeremiah 31:9.
- God will remember them, Jeremiah 31:20.
- God will heal them and give them an abundance of peace and truth, Jeremiah 33:6.
Every day, God shows me at least one verse or phrase. I write it down. I encourage you to do the same.
