In Beth’s Moore study Believing God she encouraged us to look for God Stops.
Her purpose was to encourage us to look for His activity and presence in our daily lives. I recently experienced a wonderful touch that encouraged me and I hope it will encourage you too.
This past week a dear friend called me to pray with her. I had some deep prayer concerns myself. As we were talking I said that I felt like I should write a list of names and wear them over my heart like the high priest would bear the names of the tribes on his chest before the Lord.
“Whenever Aaron enters the Holy Place, he will bear the names of the sons of Israel over his heart on the breastpiece of decision as a continuing memorial before the LORD.” Exodus 28:29
That afternoon my husband brought in the mail that contained my son’s Mother’s Day card to me. Inside the card was a simple necklace consisting of two silver disks. One had the names of our three granddaughters and the other disk had the names of our son and daughter. I loved it. Later that evening the Holy Spirit brought to my mind the statement I had made about the need to bear names over my heart before the Lord. I hadn’t made the connection at all. I was so grateful that He didn’t allow me to miss it.
I try to be faithful to put His loving touches in my journal so that I won’t ever forget the kindnesses that He has shown me. It has occurred to me that He is also savoring and recording those moments when we show our esteem for Him.
“Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name.” Malachi 3:16
Isn’t that just amazing? My own words fail me.
Your bountiful care what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light,
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain
And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.
Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
In you do we trust, nor find you to fail;
Your mercies, how tender, how firm to the end,
Our maker, defender, redeemer, and friend!
O measureless Might, ineffable Love,
While angels delight to hymn you above.
The humbler creation, though feeble their lays,
With true adoration shall sing to your praise.
O Worship the King
