If you are visiting my blog for the first time from Monday’s (September 13th) Encouragement for Today devotion, Sanctifying Discipline, welcome!! If you stopped by as one of my long-time bloggy friends, I am so thankful you are here.
Please know I have prayed for you.
What do I mean?
Well, let me explain. I have been counting the days for this post because I knew I would be announcing our next on-line Bible Study today. I have prayed since the end of our last study for God to draw women who are seeking to know Him more but just can’t seem to find the time to do it.
Guess what? Since you are reading these words, you are one of those women, sweet friend. I have been praying for you!!
If God brought you here today, please prayerfully consider joining us for our next on-line Bible study, The Heart of a Mighty Warrior: A Study of the Life of David beginning Monday, September 20th. Below is a short 5 minute video sharing a bit about my devotion and introducing the new study.
I intentionally chose my Encouragement for Today devotion, Sanctifying Discipline, to coincide with the announcement of the new study because in our David study we will watch God teach David some very difficult lessons through His sanctifying discipline.
In the last on-line study, we had over 1800 women studying the book of Ephesians!! Can you believe that? Women from nearly every state in the Union and from across the globe.
For this study, we will embark on an amazing journey through the life of one of God’s most beloved servants, King David….known by so many as “the man after God’s own heart.” We will spend six weeks with David, from the time God called him from the sheepfold to his last days as King of Israel. Through his life, God will teach us powerful life-changing truths.
Each Monday, I will post a video blog like the one above, but it will be about 10 minutes. I will post homework questions and invite you to share the answers to your questions and any other thoughts you have in the comments. You can visit our Ephesians Study to see more of how the study works.
My prayer for us is that as David’s story unfolds, our hearts would change and become more like His. I pray that we would leave different women because of the time we have spent with Him in His Word.
In our last study, I claimed God’s promise found in Isaiah 55:11:
So is my Word that goes out from My mouth:
It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
I claim this promise again for us today!!
