What’s He saying? You know it’s something.
For you. Today. Maybe it’s something He’s told you a hundred times before. Or maybe it’s something brand new.
Whichever, if it’s from Him, and if it’s to you, it’s important. So listen up.
Lately, he’s been using the writings of Paul David Tripp.
My hope is that… you will not settle for self-protection or survival.
~ Paul David Tripp, A Shelter in the Time of Storm
I’ve had this book on my shelf for months. Just hadn’t gotten around to reading it. Until last Friday. Only because I’d finished up others, I finally opened it.
All I’ve read is the introduction, and He’s got my attention. He’s been waiting to get me where I needed to be before He fed me with this. With Psalm 27. Again. How didn’t I know this book was based on Psalm 27, one of my favorites?
My hope is that these reflections will fill your heart with a patient hope that grows stronger as the trouble-spotted days go by.
This collection of words—a patient hope that grows stronger—is filling me. It’s giving me focus, a place He wants to heal me.
He’s waiting to give you words, too. To heal a hurt or strengthen a gift or correct a sin or build a faith or finish a project.
…I’m inviting you to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord. …You’ll get up a changed person.
So look for the words. Look for what he’s trying to tell you.
And when you hear it, hang on to it.
Love Him for saying something to you.
