CONSISTENCY - IT'S A LOVE LANGUAGE
Updated: Jan 11, 2021
Today I want to talk about something that’s super important to me and that’s consistency. Now what that looks like for me has changed over the years from reading short devotionals in college to now writing my own Bible studies all of which have developed in me an awareness to the importance of consistently having God’s word in my mind and heart.
Beyond our physical needs, such as water and food, we also need spiritual nourishment that can only come from the God who created us. One of the ways that God provides fulfillment for us is through His Word.
Here are some ways that God’s Word satisfies us:
Teaches, corrects, and trains. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Provides direction and guidance. (Psalm 119:105)
Gives hope. (Romans 15:4)
Grants wisdom and discernment. (Hebrews 4:12)
Helps us to mature spiritually. (1 Peter 2:2)
And so much more!
For all these benefits, we should be intentional about making time for God daily. Though it is sometimes challenging to sit silently away from distractions to meditate and bask in his presence; it takes intentional effort.
I usually lock myself in my car, I know it's a safe space away from distractions where I can cry out to the Lord, Our relationship with God requires effort on our part.
