Day 128: Like White On Rice

Lately I have come up against some tough days with the covenant… like, my life hasn’t been tough but there is this little wormy Satan trying to burrow his way into my love for God. It is truly a spiritual battle… and it has begun to take it’s toll.

I have started to really get into bookmarking verses that I come across in my daily reading for “such a time” that I will need them and they have all, one by one, been used to help me resist the flames of the evil one. And here are a few that are of great encouragement to me…

I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O LORD, supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. Psalm 94:18-19

Then the Spirit of God came upon Azariah son of Oded, and he went out to meet King Asa as he was returning from the battle. “Listen to me, Asa!” he shouted. “Listen, all you people of Judah and Benjamin! The LORD will stay with you as long as you stay with him! Whenever you seek him, you will find him. But if you abandon him, he will abandon you. 2 Chronicles 15:1-2

And this one recently has just grabbed my heart…

“O LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like you in all of heaven and earth. You keep your covenant and show unfailing love to all who walk before you in wholehearted devotion. 2 Chronicles 6:14

It’s not just “nice to know” that God will stick by his covenant with me… it’s more than just “neat” to feel His unfailing love… it’s necessary. His dedication to me… His love for me… they keep me going. I can wake up every day and no matter what that day holds for me… I know that God Almighty, Creator of the Universe, Lord of All… He will stick by me like white on rice.

And He is stuck to me. Even now I sense Him… and I sense my inability to separate myself from Him (not that I want to).

Best. rice. ever.
