Devotions from Judy’s heart

While at Sanibel we stayed in Matt’s room that was decorated with ocean fish, shells, lighthouses and huge baits etc. The whole décor was one of the ocean.  It would not fit our North Woods theme in MN any more than ours would fit his. Why do we often take something for someone else and think it should fit us too? Even though it is very good, it may not be for us. Churches also get caught up in thinking what is working somewhere else must be for their church as well. But instead each one should be praying and checking with the Lord. He knows what is best and we need to look to Him and not focus on what is happening elsewhere or in someone else’s life. Prov. 1:5 says, “Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance.” May we be in the place God has for us, looking and listening to His voice.
