Luke 10: 39: She had a sister named Mary who seated herself at the Lord’s feet and was continually listening to His teaching.
If you ask a woman what she most needs in her Spiritual life, she will have a hard time coming up with an answer, especially if you tell her you aren’t talking about physical needs, like a better income, personal needs, like a healing, or emotional needs, like relationships. She may say, “I need to better understand the Bible, or be more faithful in church attendance.” But, her true need, the thing she needs most, is time at the feet of Jesus.
Mary chose that precious time at His feet. Her sister, Martha, wanted her help serving, but Jesus said to Martha, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
That good part is the knowledge imparted by Jesus Himself, the living Word of God. That my friends is what we all need. Also, it cannot be taken away from us. The things I have learned from studying God’s Word can never be stripped from my mind. I know that He loves me. I know that He takes care of me. I know that He wants to meet my needs and He indeed does all those things. He wants me to learn more about Him, because the more I know about Him, the easier it is for me to navigate this world in which I live.
Things in our world are scary and the path before us is different than any path any man or woman has encountered before. God trusts us to live in these days, because He brought us about for “such a time as this.” Never before could all of our communications be cut off in the blink of an eye. Never before could our vehicles be disabled by a keystroke.
We have to turn our eyes away from these things, and place them like flint on the Word of God, in order that we may be able to stand up and say boldly, “I am, who I AM, says I am!” Until we know who we are in Him, we don’t really know who we are or what has been assigned to us by Almighty God, for this time. We learn who we are, and what we are assigned to do, by getting into the Word of God, until the Word gets into us.
There is so much we need to fortify our inner man with from God’s Word. We need to know that He is our provider, our healer, our rear guard, our protector, our Father, the lover of our soul, He is our King, our Counselor, our Mighty God. We are His children, the sheep of His pasture. He will provide for our needs, no matter the world conditions. Trust Him! Make His Word a priority! Until next time!
