How or What? {Into the Word Wednesday}

I may not have disclosed this ... I am in the middle of my first ever group Bible study.  To say I am enjoying it would be an understatement.  These ladies and this study are stretching me ... and it they are the first group of ladies that I don't feel like they are millions of miles ahead of me when it comes to our walks. I feel like we have such a good mix.  I know a few of you are stalking by, so I say HI!

We are studying Esther with Beth Moore.  If your church offers Beth Moore studies I would suggest checking one out.

Last week we are watching the video portion of the study and it was a bit of a literary lesson, but it was still good.  Then Beth says the 7th scenario ... "It's Tough being a woman who feels responsible for the how."  She goes into what she means by this and says "God is bring the how, you do the what."  I was meditating on that and she said something (which I heard at the time) and followed it up with, "Girlfriend you need to fire yourself!"  I bust out with a verbal AMEN!

This was so freeing! Just do what God wants you to do.  Just do the what... no matter how much you try to work out the HOW the HOW will come in GOD'S time and GOD'S time only!

Well than last night there was more about this same scenario.  Now she is giving us thing to turn around these scenarios.  Things like ... when we are worrying about the how we are not trusting God. So then remember:

"The Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgement" 2 Peter 2:9

"For He knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust." Psalm 103:14

God is giving more and more all the time.  Recently he gave me something to hold on to and how to let it go {which I used just today}.  Now I have scripture to remind me THE LORD KNOWS HOW!

I am linking up with Into the Word Wednesday.


  1. I have heard many good things about Beth Moore studies!! Awesome. I know I commented on this last idea where my comment went. Maybe I forgot to hit publish (definitely possible)!

    1. Well thanks for coming back and re commenting. :) Yeah, I love it. I am not doing the next one though. They are offering Daniel at VCC for the fall. I am doing the Battlefield Mind one. Need to fill me up on Joyce Meyer.


I love to read your comments! Let us know what you think of what we are posting.
