For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ.
1 Corinthians 10:1-2, 4 ESV
Recently, I have been re-discovering my artistic capability. This afternoon, I felt compelled to sketch a rock with Jesus in my mind.
It is so fascinating how I was able to sketch something that is in my imagination. I thank the Lord for this gift of talent. I hope to incorporate in my devotions this newfound creativity as my offering to the Lord.
Another prayer I have for the Lord is for Him to strengthen me not to fall into idolatry because I have a tendency to sidetrack my quiet time whenever I am into something that interest me. I hope my desire to honor Him will be greater than any distractions, to love the Giver more than the gift!
Soli Deo Gloria!
P.S. As I searched the verse where Jesus is proclaimed as the Rock, I was amazed that the entire chapter of 1 Corinthians 10 is about warning against idolatry and how everything we do, we should do for the Lord. I finished my draft for this post even before I searched for the verse, I’m in awe of this coincidence!
Thank You Lord for this message, I know there is no coincidence in You! ♥️♥️♥️
