Call on The Father

2015/01/img_0197.jpg

My children found a deer bedded down outside of our window this morning. When it stood up they realized that it’s foot was hurt.

Immediately I heard, “Mom!! Call Daddy!!! The deer is hurt. He’ll know what to do. Mom, please call Daddy!!!! The deer is hurt!!”

In Psalms the deer is symbolic of the founded Christian. It teaches us to thirst after The Living Water and to be founded in The Lord.

How do you handle the situation when you see “a deer” (another Christian) in need? Do you immediately seek out the wisdom of your “daddy” (Heavenly Father)? Do you realize the urgency of the situation?

Keep seeking Jesus and keep an eye out for your brothers and sisters in Christ.

Procrastination

Proverbs 31:15

The lady rolled over for the fourth time, swatting at the alarm clock.

She thought, “What does it matter if I hit the snooze button one more time?”

It matters because procrastination doesn’t just affect the procrastinator.

In the book of Proverbs we read about a virtuous woman who woke up while it was still night to prepare meat for her household and maidens….she chose to have things ready when they were needed, without delay.

She and those that she was providing for were blessed because of her efforts.

So when The Lord gives you something to do don’t “hit the snooze”. Get up. Get to work. You aren’t the only one who is being affected.

Urgency

Psalm 130:6

“Tomorrow I’ll start studying my bible.”

“Next week I’m going to start going to Sunday School.”

“Tomorrow I’m going to set aside time for me and Jesus.”

Are you trading in the joys of today in hope of having a tomorrow?

Live each day waiting on God…following His direction…drawing closer to Him.

Don’t fall in the trap of “I’ll do it tomorrow…” Tomorrow may never come.
