It’s been 20 days since my last QT. I suppose I was going through some rough patches. I got very tired from a lot of things, and I had to let go of a few things, and one of them was QT. Fact that we were doing Ezekiel didn’t really help either. I did read a chapter or two of the bible a handful of times just to survive, but in retrospect, I really should have eaten the Word of God a lot more, like today’s verse 2 says, like a new born baby after his milk.
Verse 2: Like new born babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation
I’m saved, through my faith and faith alone. No wrong I can do can take that away, but being saved, and living a life pleasing to the Lord are two very different things, and I happen to desire not just the former, but also the latter. This desire makes things hard sometimes, and is something I’m learning to let go now and then, to admit my flaws, and give glory to Jesus who still considers me flawless.
This QT, deciding to do it just now, was a battle. I’ve been losing this battle for the past 20 days, but I almost lost again today, but I said to myself, I may lose many more in the future, but I will win today even if it’s only today, and that alone still pleases Him. I’m glad I did.
Application: eat at least 3 chapters, go to morning prayer tomorrow, do QT tomorrow
