As I was thinking/praying this morning about what to submit for my bi-monthly post, the thought "Picture Scripture" came to my mind. Picture Scripture is the name of a journal that I had created a year ago for my sons, Bink and Davis, as they went off to their respective colleges.
Interestingly (providentially?!), only MINUTES after I asked the Lord to confirm this idea as the appropriate post to submit this morning, I got an out-of-the-blue-text from my son Davis that simply said:"Reading my picture scripture"; and then he added this page of his journal, that I will now share with you:
I texted Davis back, thanking him for his part in this post, and then added these words, which again, are now for you: "God loves to work through His children! Be His confident light today." Praying that each one of us will understand, believe, and then live out the passage above (II Cor. 5:14-20). Indeed, may the love of Christ control us!
*If you enjoyed this "picture concordance", more of the same can be found on my website under the titles Picture Scripture III and Picture Scripture II.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. James 4:7-8
Thank you for your instructional word! Please Lord, through your powerful Spirit, help us to submit to your authority, as well as resist the temptations or arrows of our enemy. As we do these things, thank you for the promises that the devil will flee and you will draw near. Amen.
