Devotions from Judy’s heart
In my own devotions lately it has been speaking of  the need to walk by the Spirit, letting the Spirit have free reign.  Today I read from Gal 5:25, “If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.” And as we do beautiful fruit results from such living. Yesterday we were expecting a pastor to come for retreat at noon. I had a Swedish meatball dinner all waiting and no one came. Al checked for phone messages and then his e-mail and found she sent a message about 20 minutes after he checked his daily e-mails.  So I had to make a 180 degree turn and put everything back in the frig until supper time, at which time we enjoyed.  Does it seem like the Lord does that to us sometimes? We are going along so smoothly and all of a sudden He brings us to a big turn and everything changes. “God why?  What was I doing wrong?” Not necessarily anything but He may have purposes for which we do not know and we can trust Him. It’s important to be sensitive to the Spirit’s leading rather than to keep barreling on through, which then becomes our will and not His. We are told in Jer. 6:16, that as we walk in the good way we will find rest for our souls,,,and then we will taste the good fruit!!!
