I decided to start this blog (2010) because my son, John-Robert gave me a One Year Bible for Christmas, the New Living Translation... reading it has changed my life... I post a daily Bible verse on my Facebook page every day and it has been well received... I thought that this would be a wonderful way to share part of what I read each day!... I hope that you enjoy it.

This Year 2012 I am going to do things a little different... not much...just a little. I am again reading through my One Year Bible (for the 3rd time). But I am also using "The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word" by Joyce Meyer. This book is divided by putting scriptures under different categories so they can be used to speak over our life situations. Each day I will read a category of scripture and pick a scripture in that category to write about.

Deuteronomy 1:32-33 But even after all he did, you refused to trust the Lord your God, who goes before you looking for the best places to camp, guiding you with a pillar of fire by night and a pillar of cloud by day.
My Thoughts
The Israelites didn't trust God.  God had brought them to the Promise Land where bunch of grapes had to be carried on a pole.  God had parted the sea before them and they still didn't trust God.  They looked at the giants of that land and measured those giants against their own strength and not God's strength. So they refused to go in!!  A whole generation of people lost out because they didn't trust in God. 
We don't have a pillar of fire by night or a pillar of cloud by day, but we do have our Bibles and we have the Holy Spirit inside of us guiding us.  What do we miss out on when we don't trust God? How many people do our decisions effect when we don't trust God? We can read the story of how the Israelites didn't trust God and wonder why...then miss out on opportunities to trust God ourselves because we size up a situation on our abilities instead of God's abilities.
