Devotions from Judy’s heart

Yesterday at our Renewal group we were in Romans 8 and talked about living the Spirit filled life.   “It is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God”.  We shared instances when we just knew that it was the Lord and felt led by the Spirit.  Later in the day Kurt called asking for wisdom and prayer to help someone who had was severely depressed. We talked about things that may help, including giving scriptures of hope and encouragement, starting a men’s group to have an “army of men” to stand with the troubled man etc.  When we got off the phone he asked the Lord what scriptures to give and just then a car passed him on I-435 in K.C. with a license plate that read Psalm 91.  Wow! That was also the very scripture that God used in my life when we were going through a difficult time in our church. I memorized it and would quote it over and over in my mind as I was driving places, swimming laps in the pool etc. It gave me strength and courage. When you think of it, we might say it is our 911 number. Ps. 91:1 “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will abide in the shadow of the almighty.”   Later Kurt also shared that he is beginning a new men’s group that will start this Friday night!  The Spirit is at work and He wants to lead and guide us even in the smallest details, keeping us closely connected to Him.
