Devotional, Encouragement

The Bottle

This is a  a bottle.  It  is my water bottle.  Anyone who is around me for long knows that I carry this bottle wherever I go. When I forget and leave it somewhere, I miss it.  Thankfully it is usually left in a place I can retrieve it.

Makes me think…

This is a Bible.  This is my Bible.   Those around me know that this is my Bible.  But I don’t physically carry it with me wherever I go. But, I can carry what I know from this book wherever I go.  When I don’t have it,  I should miss it like I do my water bottle.

I think of Psalm 119:11

“Your word have I hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You”

These are children.  These are my children.

They need to see that I have  hidden Gods word in my heart that I might not sin.

My thoughts, attitudes,  actions,  words, and my countenance all reveal whether I am as devoted to “carrying” my Bible as I am to “carrying” my water bottle.

“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

2 Corinthians 12:9
