VERSE FOR THE YEAR: But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; CONSIDER what great things he has done for you. 1 Samuel 12:24 NIV
When contemplating the meaning of something that has been said or done, it is beneficial to CONSIDER THE SOURCE. Knowing who or what is behind the words or actions brings added understanding and acceptance.
The source of a team’s vision and goal comes from their coach. When ample consideration is given to a wise coach’s directives, it brings a team together. This power source ignites a team’s spirit, instills trust and develops confidence no matter the situation.
In Psalm 13 David, a man after God’s own heart, CONSIDERS THE SOURCE. Feeling lost and dejected he reveals his innermost thoughts…
How long will you forget me, Lord? Forever? How long will you hide from me?
How long must I worry and feel sad in my heart all day?
How long will my enemy win over me? Psalm 13:1-2 NCV
Having no immediate relief, David begins to demand and states his case to the Source…
Lord, look at me. Answer me, my God; tell me, or I will die. Otherwise my enemy will say, “I have won!” Those against me will rejoice that I’ve been defeated. Psalm 13:3-4 NCV
David finally remembers how God has rescued him in the past and once again he begins to rest in the Source…
I trust in your love. My heart is happy because you saved me. Psalm 13:5 NCV
All of David’s “considerations” led him to a place of peace with the God he wanted to trust. Are you questioning today? Perhaps you’ve moved on to pleading. It’s time to submit to the One who loves you the most and knows you the best…the Source of life itself – the light of the world - our ever-faithful and living Lord.
CONSIDER THE SOURCE…AND REST IN HIM - ALWAYS!
