My deepest desire when I’m writing is to be able to share with others all the joy, the comfort, the hope and the strength I receive continually from God, by taking time to open up to Him and listen to Him through His Holy Word in the Bible. I pray these meditations will help the readers to experience God’s love for each one of us in a new and exciting way. Amen!
Meditation (Numbers 16:8,9) Moses continued to speak to Korah, “Listen, you Levites! Do you consider it a small matter that the God of Israel has set you apart from the rest of the community, so that you can approach Him, perform your services in the Lord’s Tent, and minister to the community and serve them?”
Personal Reflection and Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, May You forgive us that at times we seem to ‘consider it a small matter that the God of Israel has set us apart from the rest of the community… to minister to the community and serve them’. What a privilege! May You please, dear Lord, help us serve and give You glory by our various ministries. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
