In Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (NIV), it quotes “These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
Diligently means to show care and being attentive towards someone and something; distributing patience.
It was the Lord that wanted us to ‘Listen and Know’ this information, as mentioned in Deuteronomy 6:1-2 (NIV): “These are the commands, decrees and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life.”
We would not make it very far in our lives without Him. This is not to say that the souls that are gone and resting with the Lord now was not of any importance. Of course everyone one’s life was important. They were here to inspire you, encourage you, love you, and push you forward. That ‘Love’ is the same kind of love God has been showing us all along.
I understand that nowadays, technology has been a major concern nowadays and it’s as if that sense of “family” may have dissolved at this point… but I say that it’s further from the truth. It is not too late to teach, help, and support your “Family”, which goes beyond your personal home siblings, but your family that seeks help in Christ’s Name.
Recently, I watched an online Bible Study with speaker Gwen Smith at gwensmith.net over the Facebook page. The thing about our first session together with her was that our signals with her kept disrupting and breaking up. Her signal would strangely disconnect us from hearing her words about God, but I was able to hear her make a sound truth. She said that “When we seek Him, we will find Him”, referencing how Joshua and the Israelites walked over dry land to follow the Lord. At the same time, I thought of how long it took us to keep a connection and find her new live videos and searching for them in order to locate her. Altogether, it came to be four videos, but wherever she had switched or moved to, we were able to find her, once again, and kept on moving forward with our study.
Never stopping, being diligent, and focused on God’s Word is a miracle within itself because we were sharing God’s Love in the process. Although Sister Gwen constantly apologized to us for the interruptions, we didn’t blame her for the mistake, but the Devil instead. Lol. 🙂 It was obvious because the enemy hates for us to listen, read, and learn anything about God, but it’s been time for us to shut his service down this time.
Although my age classifies me as an adult, I am still learning about the Lord as a child of God. I just have a thirst and hunger for His Word and I can’t wait until I am prepared to teach others as well. Of course, I may not be able to comment on all of your posts, but I do glance and read them because ‘YOU ARE TEACHING ME’. What am I talking about? All of your messages are coming from the same being: God. As I read through all of your posts, comments, poems, pictures, and articles, I notice how wonderful and strong God’s blessings have been to all of you and I can only become speechless in the end. You have taught and showed me an example of God’s Love and how He speaks to and through all of you… and I am thankful for that.
You can never be too old or too young to learn more of His Word. I love that because every time I reread and study His Word, it always feels as if I’m learning something new and as if His Word can morph and change a lot. Wow! What a miracle! 🙂
