Devotional: Step Away From The Kid’s Table

1 Corinthians 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. Sitting here  nibbling on animal crackers, I remembered back when I was 4 or 5 years old, doing the same thing as my Sunday school teacher, Mrs. Blount, told Bible stories using an old school flannel board. 

Now when I was a little girl, that was fine.  I looked and took in the Word in simplistic terms as I munched on my crackers and sipped my juice.  Those demonstrations and snacks were tasty, but neither the treat nor the lessons were intended to sustain me.  What if that was all I was given the entire week? I would be malnourished and  my caregivers would be irresponsible. What if in the college class I sat around in a  small chair, chomping graham crackers, as the instructor read from a picture book of  the Bible? That’s just crazy. Long before then, I would be expected to feed and study for myself.

As I grew, my tastes matured and my hunger for a deeper study into God’s Word did as well. In Matthew, Jesus tells us that those who still crave more are blessed, because He will fill us. We know certainly that what the Lord gives us will certainly nourish and satisfy.  Like our stomach growling to be fed, so should our soul cry out for God’s Word. 

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. 

 Father God

Thank You for this day

Thank You for the many things You have to teach us

Please encourage our hearts to open Your Word

That we might learn more about You
 It’s time we leave the “kid’s table”, Lord

We can’t remain in a juvenile mindset, Almighty God

We need to learn, grow and mature
From Your Word, we need to learn what has been and what is to come

Please put the desire to obey within us

Thank You for providing all we need

Your Word has the delicious aroma

 Please let us come, craving the satisfaction only found in You

In the Name of Jesus

Amen

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
