I heard an explanation for the song/saying/scripture “As the deer pants for the water…” it went something like this: A lot of us believe that is saying the deer is thirsty. Like all he needs is a sip of water. But that’s NOT so. The thing is when a deer is being chased it heads…
We sometimes get so wrapped up in “He said, she said,” that we forget. We forget that people in general cannot stand against us when we have God on our side.
“God knows my heart.”
That statement is usually said before, during, or immediately after doing something that we as Christians have no business doing at all…
Without God. That’s a tough statement. Without God it can get a bit…ok a lot rough. When we let life, distractions, even others dictate the amount of time that we are spending with God we succumb to a week that then rolls into months and years of what amounts to spiritual starvation….
Often times we ask God to change us, to clean us and to make us over and then we fight Him every step of the way. We question evey move, disobey every directive, and complain when changes take place.
It’s hard when you’re young…..
I don’t mean young as in you are a teenager or in your early twenties. Granted those are indeed hard times, filled with teenage angst, acne, college, and learning that life well…sometimes sucks.
I mean it’s hard when you are young in Christ. When you are just a babe, freshly saved…or even saved for a long time but not quite mature.
