Word Living - The SIA Newsletter

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
Proverbs 6:6-8 (NKJV)


Each issue of Word Living looks at Scripture and applies it to everyday living. SIA urges readers to prayerfully meditate on any Scriptural reference featured in our newsletters until the Holy Spirit shows you a way to apply its truth to your own life.

WELCOME TO WORD LIVING MAY - JUNE 2020

We give praise for the opportunity to share the word of God with you.

CORONAVIRUS DISEASE (COVID-19)

The subject is on our minds and for some, it has been life changing.

We woke up one morning and things had changed. Though we cannot see it, the virus would leave its mark on the world as never before. A virus is microscopic parasites (an organism that lives in or on an organism of another species (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the other's expense.

Viruses are microscopic parasites, generally much smaller than bacteria. They lack the capacity to thrive and reproduce outside of a host body.

Something we cannot see, has come to remind us that we are not in charge. The Bible states in 2 Chronicles 7:14 AKJV, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

The key words are If and Then

We read scripture, and for the most part, we can say it verbatim, but the reality is, Jesus is in charge and we need to seek his face.

Our priority may need to be readjusted. The owner of all, has sent a message to remind us, the only true investment is spending time in the word, so that we live according to his directions, teach our children by example how to honor and obey his word, and place him first in all that we say or do.

Does the name of Jesus appear at the tops of your planner? I know I have fallen short of this action as I get up rushing or answering a call, etc. that may mean rushing to do something else.

“NO EXCUSE LORD, I FAILED, I AM SORRY, PLEASE FORGIVE ME.”

And so, the Devil does not get me off track, I added written note to my screen and phone, to talk to Jesus first. Note the key words: 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. The Lord has provided all we need, and only asks us to do what we were designed to do, so we achieve our purpose and receive his blessings. Note the word if, comes first and the action of healing that only God can provide.

QUESTIONS FOR THOUGHT?
Does Jesus Christ have our attention? Are we listening? Dear Jesus, for everyone who reads this letter, may they be at peace knowing that you are in charge.

May we remember to: We look forward to serving you in the fall.

During the Shelter-In-Place, follow the rules to keep everyone safe. It is a time to reminder, that each day is a blessing from God. We are called for a purpose. And now we have time to reflect on the many blessings and encourage others that our God has never failed

We pray for the many families who have lost loved one. We look forward to a time when we can visit, break bread, and hug. Until it is safe, we pray for peace, safety for all, provisions for those on the front line, food for those in need and a cure for COVID-19.

Much love and prayers,

Karen
