Just had a great hour listening to Paul Washer. Four Pillars of Walking With God on the Be Honest app. Paul is a very powerful and emotional speaker and if you haven’t heard him speak before there are tons of sermons on the app to choose from, give him a listen! Just some quick takeaways from this one in particular for me personally...
-The Word is the ONLY true source to learn to know God.
-False humility is getting in my way. It’s not what I think of myself, it’s what I think about God. -Judging my obedience, or lack thereof, is not my source for joy. The whole of who I am and the great foundation of my joy must come from His performance! Not mine!! It’s who He is that matters, not who I am.
-Because of my joy I delight in obedience! I’ts not a burden to me. I’m happy to not be an idolater. I am joyful to honor my father and mother!...etc.
-I am excited for what’s to come as I grow in my comprehension of His love for me! HE LOVES ME!!!! LITTLE ’OL ME...THAT IS SOOOO AWESOME!!!
and in reference to Pauls opening statement....I did end up leaving with ”some sort of a spiritual high”!! Lord help me learn to abide in you as you abide in me. Then I know I will be praying for the right things instead of ”silly Tommy stuff”. Much love WfC!!
