Top 5 “Nuggets” from Jan. 2015


A new year. A new plan. This January I started the 365 Day Bible Reading plan in the back of my new journaling Bible that I got for Christmas. 

On January 1, after reading I felt led to post a “nugget” from something that stood out during my quiet time using the hashtag #Bible365 on my Facebook page. 

Below are the Top 5 posts that received the most interaction — in no particular order — in the month of January 2015.

Nugget #1

Do you like to read the Old Testament?

If not, I’d like to remind you of one of many promises that you’ll miss out on. In Exodus Chapter 6 as God is preparing Moses and giving him the message to the Israelites, God tells us, “… I am The Lord … I will bring you out … I will deliver you … I will redeem you …” (Verse 6) God promises deliverance.

Hide that in your heart and mind.

Nugget #2

The fall comes when it’s more about us than it is about Him!

At the Tower of Babel the Word states they said, ” …Come, let US build ourselves a city … let US make a name for ourselves…” Genesis 11:4 ESV

Our prayer should be: Less of me, more of you Lord!

Nugget #3

First sacrifice in the Bible, Genesis 3. “And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them.” Genesis 3:21 ESV

Something had to die to cover their sins.

Aren’t you thankful that in God’s timing that the perfect lamb was slain? Christ’s blood covered all, no more need for sacrifices. See 1 Peter 1:18-21.

Nugget #4

A sealed tomb, guards and large stone were no hindrance for God in the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus.

After Jesus was buried, I love how Pilate tells the Pharisees, “Go make it as secure as YOU can.” (Matthew 27:65) Man’s methods did not stop God’s plan from unfolding.

Just remember that the barriers placed in your path are no obstacle when God is in control. His Will and plan will unfold.

Nugget #5

Check your temperature! No, not for the flu or the common cold, but check your heart. Has it grown cold?

Interesting nuggets from my Bible reading today: I read of Jesus talking about the signs of the end times. He says, “… because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12

I see it all the time on Facebook and in our daily conversations — I’m guilty as well — but how quickly do we condemn others? The other ‘nugget’ I read was this, “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight …” Psalm 19:14

A correlation? A coincidence? No. We first have to look to ourselves. Check the temperature of our own hearts. Has it become cold? What’s the remedy? To use Psalm 19:14 as a litmus test / a self check and a prayer to test and see if our words and thoughts (and actions) of our hearts are first pleasing to God.

Love one another!
