He brought us OUT so that He might bring us IN

At the end of April, two groups of women began studying the book of Deuteronomy, under the DVD leadership of Beth Moore, and her Bible study series: The Law of Love: Lessons from the Pages of Deuteronomy.  It is a six week study.  Last night the Monday NIGHT group of women watched the sixth and final DVD.  Yesterday MORNING, the Monday Morning Group watched the 4th lesson.
I, being the facilitator, have had the great joy of getting to watch the DVD twice!  And both times I gleaned something new.
My view from the back row ~ it thrills my heart when
I am with women who are hungry for the Word of God!
I thank God for the 27 women
 that He brought to Women Refreshed at the Well
for this Bible Study
My Granddaughter was the youngest in attendance.
Hardly ever made a peep!
My prayer is that she too, will one day give her life to Jesus
and follow Him with all her heart!

It was always my prayer for these women (27 in all) that they would leave here with something else that took root in their hearts, and go from here and continue to grow in their walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.  

In the first lesson, one thing I wrote was these quotes:
"He doesn't just bring people OUT to bring them out!  There is always a place He wants to takes us.   Put some obedience to our walk!  Faith that God is going to move mountains and part seas!  We were never meant to stay!"

The key verse for the series was Deuteronomy 6:23 ESV  "And He brought us out from there, that He might bring us in and give us the land that He swore to give to our fathers." The line in BOLD became our KEY for the series.

In the first session, Beth Moore talked about how an 11 day journey became a 40 year wandering in the wilderness! Deuteronomy was a book written - or the word for Deuteronomy in Hebrew is Devarim which is translated "words" .  These are the WORD OF THE LORD described by the WORDS of the Lord!!  (so have I confused you?)

This series - I would encourage you to do!  You can even do it online in the comforts of your own home, by yourself if you wish.  You can buy and download the sessions.  Deuteronomy was brought to life, and I realized that I am exactly like the people that this book was written for!!

At the end of session one, she stated that there was only one kind of person who didn't get another chance (in Deuteronomy) and it was the dead ones.  The ones who died there in the wilderness!

There is so much in this study!!  I thank God for anointed Beth Moore with His words, so that she could bring the WORD of God alive in a new way through this study!!  Lord, we praise you, and give YOU all the honor and the glory!!

He brought me out so that he would bring me in!
Every morning when I awake, I realize God has given me a fresh start - a new day - another chance at living for him.  I will say that each day finds me in a challenge - and I thank God for that - as it is in these things, the challenges and always in the hardest times, that I know, I KNOW I grow the most.

May this be YOUR awareness today - that He has brought you out - or perhaps you are still caught in something that keeps you enslaved - HE CAN BRING YOU OUT ... but rest assured, it is not just to leave you, but to bring you IN to something way way WAY better - and for His glory!!

in His Grip,
