This is our quote for "In Other Words Tuesday":
"His Word is a book of instructions, guidelines, and boundaries. If we study the Word, learn His ways, and submit to His Word, we are protected." ~ Psalm 91 He Who Dwells by Laura Velez
I actually read this little eBook (on sale now for $.99 on amazon) but I want to add the next sentence to this quote:
"If we step out of those boundaries (into sin) we are no longer under His protection."Think about it. I love the illustration using the umbrella. If you stay under the umbrella, you won't get wet. But if you step outside of the umbrella's protection, you'll get wet.
I am so thankful that I've been saved from my sins through the blood of Jesus. However, I still walk in this world and so I get my feet dirty. I am in no way perfect and I sin. There are consequences when I sin.
What helps me is to follow my instruction book; the Bible. And no, it's not simply following a bunch of rules. When I spend time in the Word, I am changed from the inside out. I find that I delight in what God desires for me.
I found this wall decoration on Dayspring and thought it summarized where I want to live.

"Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; so neither can ye, except ye abide in me."
I will say ...
- I want to have His protection.
- I choose to abide in Him.
- I love to spend time in His Word.
- I want what God wants for my life.
- I want to bear fruit that will impact others.
- I want to make a difference in other's lives for Him.
