A Weekly Encouragement Series based on Hope for the Weary Mom Devotional by Stacey Thacker and Brooke McGlothlin
A Hope (A Quote from the Book):
“…God won’t always speak to me about everything I bring to him. Sometimes, I just have to base my decisions on what I already know to be true…The fact is God’s word is our life and breath.” (p. 105, He Speaks to You)
A Help (A Message of Encouragement for Your Journey): Every word written in the Bible is the inspired word of God. It was written so that we might learn of Him and His promises. It was written so that we might come to know His Truth and be saved. It was written so that we might experience the LORD, tasting of Him, partaking of Him, and being satisfied by Him. How often we forget to stop, quiet ourselves and hear or rather listen to His voice by way of His holy Word. There is a blessing in being still and knowing God and in remembering His words. There is a blessing in recalling His past deliverances in our lives and in reminding ourselves of His saving grace. And in those moments when we think the LORD seems to be quiet, we have to trust that He is still speaking and reflect on those things that we know and that have come to know as His unwavering truth. We must know and believe in our hearts that His inspired movement speaks even in what we view to be silence.
- Your Hope & Help Lesson for the Week: God speaks in many ways. The more time we spend with Him and His inspired word, the more we become attuned to His voice and movement, whether in seeming silence or not.
- Your Hope & Help Scripture for the Week: 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (AMP)
A Heart (A Prayer from My Heart to Yours): My LORD and dearest King, You are a gift and a blessing to all who would know You. Thank You for speaking and moving in the ways of love. It is my prayer this day that You would help each woman, mother, and saint be still and know You as the God who saves. May You speak in each life in a very special way and teach every individual what You would have her know. Point us to Your heart, keep us in Your grace, and carry us home at Your appointed time. In the saving name of Jesus. Amen.
