What do you get when you have Kay Arthur, Beth Moore, and Priscilla Shirer all in one room together? Well, certainly not a lack of knowledge of the Bible.
Lord. Have. Mercy.
I enjoyed a great weekend with a few my BS’ers, er, Bible Study gals, at the Deeper Still conference in OKC. We had intended on eating a nice dinner in Bricktown prior to the event on Friday, but by the time we parked, time was a tickin’. Call me spoiled, but concession nachos and cheese are not my idea of a satisfying meal. A Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cake maybe. But, not nachos. When we were crossing the street downtown, my friend, Deleise, said, “I smell steak, and it makes me sad.” I suddenly had a strange feeling come over me that we must be sisters.
Deleise and I have a lot in common. She is a reallllly good cook, and I reallllly love good food.
Anyhoo, back to Deeper Still.
Kay Arthur taught the book of Hebrews Friday night. The WHOLE book of Hebrews. So, if y’all have any questions on Hebrews, feel free to call me. I’ll tell you to call Kay Arthur.
I was most excited to hear Beth Moore until Mrs. Priscilla took the stage. I triple heart her. She said a whole lotta goodness, but I especially loved this statement:
“Whether God chooses to do something is a question of His sovereignty, not His ability.”
I always think of Job when I think of the sovereignty of God. You know, the whole “where were you” speech. But key in it all is to never stop praying.
Let’s say that again.
Never stop praying.
Don’t grow weary in praying for that thing you keep praying for. Even when it seems God is not answering. Or even hearing ya. Heavens, how long did Elijah pray for rain? I can’t remember for sure, you’ll have to ask my daddy or Kay Arthur, but I know it was a long time.
Just remember, He can do anything.
And, what concerns you concerns Him. You can put God in a box. But your box will not limit Him. It will just limit your awareness of Him.
He’s bigger than your problem.
And, He is able.
