Numbers Resources {Week 5}

Welcome

Welcome to the fifth week in the book of Numbers. I hope you enjoyed last week and learned a little bit about giving someone a pass every once in awhile. Remember our Lord merciful, so we should be also. This week we are going to see a little more about the nature of God. He isn’t just merciful, he’s also loving, and a great provider. He is always faithful to his promises.

This post is all about the fifth week of Numbers. Here you will find our reading plan and memory verse. My APPLY for the week will be about the nature of God and how knowing who God is, helps us to better understand ourselves. I will post it on Wednesday, so be sure to subscribe to the blog!

Learning to Forgive Myself

In my experience, forgiving myself for past mistakes is far my challenging than forgiving others for the poor choices they have made. I strive each day to be better than the day before but I often fall short of that goal. There are so many things we struggle with that seem like the silent battles we face throughout the day. But even the wounds that can’t be seen, can still cause us pain and suffering. We should put all of our challenges at the foot of the cross, especially these hidden ones.

Learning to forgive ourselves is an important practice. We have to understand that, although we are children of God, we are still fallen creatures and will fall into the temptations of sin. You are not perfect. As long as you are here on Earth, you will never be perfect. It’s a fact of life we need to face, but it isn’t one that defines our existence. God is the one that defines our existence. The scriptures tell us that he will remove all sins, including the little secret one’s we hold on to. Psalms says, “As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our sins from us” (103:12).

Accept this form of love from our Lord. I know it’s difficult, but allow his great mercy to wash over your heart and all the things you hold in it. He waits on the cross to forgive you, to love you immensely, and to take away all pain. He seeks to build you up, not to tear you down. So many of the things we hold on to, hold us down. They weigh on us and keep us from becoming the men and women God calls us to become. Remember, you are set apart for the glory of God, to be his child and to shine his love into the hearts of all people. This is an important job that requires our full attention, we can’t harbor self-hatred in our hearts. There is simply no room for it.

Numbers Resources {Week 4}

Welcome

Welcome back to Numbers, I hope your third week in this study went well. Last week we saw some Israelite spies go to reconnoiter the land. They saw that it was going to be a tremendous challenge to get through, but by God’s grace, they will take possession of the land. As they work their way toward the Promised Land, they’ll have to pass through several areas, one of them is Edom. This week we will see the response of the Edomite king when Israel requests passage.

This post is all about the fourth week of Numbers. Here you will find our reading plan and memory verse. My APPLY for the week will be about giving someone a pass when they do wrong. I will post it on Wednesday, so be sure to subscribe to the blog!

Listen to God

Moses is very fortunate to be the intimate friend of the Almighty and to have the opportunity to hear God so clearly. Unfortunately, because of the Fall, the rest of us are not so fortunate. We have to find other ways to hear God and know we are walking down the right path. As I said in this week’s video, there are a lot of ways to listen to God, and he will communicate to each of us in the way we are most receptive to it.

I hear God most in nature. I’m a very indoorsy kind of person, so I wonder what that says about the state of my spiritual journey. But in my experience, I have found that when I shut the world out and take a nice walk in nature, I feel so connected to the Lord. The wind in the trees, the birds, the sound of water, all these things put me into an attitude of gratitude for the great Creator. It also humbles me to see how tiny I am. In the grand scheme of time and space, I’m entirely insignificant if I don’t have Christ at the center of my heart. I’m reminded of the great blessing it is to be a person made in the image of God. And although these animals are special and beautiful, they aren’t human, they can’t bring glory to God the way can, they can’t unite themselves to the risen Lord like I can. I have a responsibility to serve God. Getting outside is one of the best ways Jesus gets ahold of me.

When praying there are few things to keep in mind. I don’t know about you but my prayers can sometimes be all petition, now glorification or thanksgiving. That’s one of the reasons I like to pray outdoors. Helps me get into the right frame of mind for prayer. I want to share with you a few things to keep in mind when you are trying to listen to God in prayer.

  1. Be humble: You don’t actually know what you need, you know what you want, but not what you need. God knows what you need, and only he has the power to give it to you. When you go to prayer, try to always have a heart open to his holy will.
  2. Be thankful: You are a special, beautiful, unique creature of God. He loves you so infinitely that he died a painful and shameful death, just so he could spend an eternity with you. Be thankful for his sacrifice, and all the things he does for you every single day.
  3. Be clear: I think this is one we don’t talk about enough. When you pray, know exactly what it is your praying for and why. Being specific in prayer is more beneficial to you than to God, but it helps you see things with clarity, instead of the abstract. For example, pray for $1,000 so you can pay your rent, don’t just pray for more money. I found when I do this, when I receive the blessing I ask for, I feel a strong sense of accountability to use it correctly.
  4. Be silent: There was one day I was deep in prayer and I felt the Lord say to me I talk too much. It’s true, I do. Everyone who knows me I talk to much, but I also have a mind that runs a mile a minute. The Lord needed to remind me to be still and know that I’m stressin’ for nothin’.
  5. Be receptive: This is easily the hardest one to follow. Getting into the practice of being receptive to the Lord’s will can be a challenge, but it is one that is very important. We should always be striving to unite our will to his. He knows what’s best and will bring it to fruition, but he may ask us for some things. We must work to be accepting and receptive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and the will of the Father.

Prayer is just one of several ways you can listen to the voice of God. Most of us don’t have the prophetic gift of Moses, but that doesn’t mean we can’t learn to discern his voice and follow his plan in our lives. This post is just about prayer, if you would like me to write about the other ways God may communicate with the faithful, let me know. I’d be happy to do so!

Generosity

This has been the hardest post to write in the book of Numbers. Probably because I’m not a very generous person. I spoke in this week’s video about the three different ways one can be generous. Like all of us, I’m better with some than others. I’m typically pretty generous with my treasure. I live at home and don’t really have any bills so I don’t mind giving money to those in need. I always tithe 10 and give to an second collections when I can. I also love giving to the local women’s health center. They do a lot of good work, especially considering there is a Planned Parenthood right around the corner. The things they do in my community, especially in post-abortion counseling and care, is so important. We also do collections for under funded churches in the city or around the world. My home parish has some partner parishes where we help raise money for them. I’m happy to do that.

When it comes to talent, I’m not really sure what my talents are. I think I have a talent for talking, I can talk A LOT, always have. Although I’m not sure if this is a God given talent, or the test of patience for the people around me. I do have a lot of words and I have used them to start a blog and YouTube channel. Of course, it is a goal that these things will help me earn a living, not necessarily for purely philanthropic purposes.

Finally, there’s time. This one is by far my hardest one. I’m an introvert and one of my primary love languages is quality time. I have found I have a difficult time receiving love so I’m very cautious…selfish, about how I spend my time and who I spend it with. Although I’m a talker, I’m not much for social interactions. I’m not the person anyone calls when they are going through a rough patch, I am not the girl who will take you out for a cup of tea to discuss your breakup. I think this is the one I’d like to work on. In general, I’ve been wanting to do better with my socialization and being a friend to people. It’s a struggle, but I know it’s important.

Any tips on how I might be more generous with my time?

Numbers Resources {Week 2}

Welcome

Welcome back to Numbers, I hope your first week went very well! We saw a major census happen which was fantastic because it showed us that God is faithful to his promises. If you did Genesis, you will know God has been promising to make the Israelites very numerous, and here they are with a very large nation of people getting set for battle. This week we are going to final see the Israelites leave Mount Sinai, where they have been since midway through Exodus.

This post is all about the second week of Numbers. Here you will find our reading plan and memory verse. My APPLY for the week will be about generosity as the Israelites continue to make preparations to take the Promised Land. I will post it on Wednesday, so be sure to subscribe to the blog!

God’s Path for You

My brother is in that phase of life where he is trying to figure out what his best case scenario is. He’s contemplating how he wants his life to go and what he needs to do to achieve that scenario. He has asked me a few times what I think of my best case scenario and how much time I spend thinking about the future, what I want to do with my life, etc. He’s also asked me what I thought of his dreams and plans, which I’m always careful how I respond.

I’m now at the place in life where I don’t need to contemplate the future. I know that God often laughs at our plans because it is really all about his plan for our lives. I want to live a life dedicated in service to the Lord of my life so that I can become a saint! I’m not here on Earth to muse about the future, but to buckle down and get the business.

It’s important for the faithful to take a couple minutes to stop thinking about all the best and worst case scenarios in life, and ask the Lord what his plans actually are. Remember God’s plans are always for good, he wants to unite you with him in heaven and, if you let him, he will only allow things in your life to bring about that end. We (myself included) need to stop having this idea that we don’t want to experience any challenges or adversities on our journey, these are sanctifying! They can bring about a great testimony that will help draw more brothers and sisters home.

The last point I want to make this week, I said in the video, but I think it is worth repeating. When it comes to discerning the will of God, there are few things you need to check it against.

#1 Is it in love? All things that come from God are to be done in love. If there is a sense of self promotion, pride, or anything negative, it probably  isn’t from God and you need to do some more soul searching.
#2 Is God sending the same message to someone else in your life? In my Reflections book I talk about how, although my family doesn’t understand what I’m doing, Father Sports and some close friends of mine are being very supportive.
#3 Are you being patient? God’s plan is consistent, I’m going to be talking about that in this study. He isn’t going to put something on your heart and then take it off. You will have a pull in the direction the Lord wants you to go for a long time.

These bible studies are my mission. I know that all my life, God has placed a desire on my heart to pursue him. I’ve had my ups and my downs in this, but I know this is where he wants me to be. I’ve always loved reading God’s word and I think it’s important to share. The internet is definitely a place that needs more of the Lord and less of the world. So this is my mission, to act in love to bring about the glory of God.

This post is from the Book of Numbers bible study. Please join us as we go through God’s word together where we will learn so much about ourselves and our Lord. You can find out more information about the Bible-A-Day series here.

Introducing the Book of Numbers

Now that we have completed the book of Leviticus, it’s time to jump into Numbers. If you are doing these studies with me on the blog then you are probably just as excited as I am to be out of Leviticus. It was useful, but it was rough!There are some new things I’m excited to introduce in this study so let’s get started. We will begin the book of Numbers on July 16!

For those who are curious about my reflections through the book of Numbers, I am proud to present my first devotional! You can definitely go through it at the same time as this study. I’ve done a separate post about the devotional but a quick explanation of what it is: It’s my thoughts and musings throughout the book of Numbers. Each day has a bible verse, a short reading, and a journal question for you to contemplate. It would be a fantastic companion to this study.

I have always loved spending time in the Scriptures. I think it is the privilege and duty of the faithful to read God’s word regularly. While on earth we are called to unite ourselves to our Lord and live as closely as possible to the love of the Holy Trinity. We do this through Scripture reading, daily prayer, and connecting with our brothers and sisters in faith.

“Ignorance of scripture is ignorance of Christ,” St. Jerome.

Because of my passion for scripture and brining it to others, I have written this Bible-A-Day series. On July 16, we will begin the book of Numbers. It is a refreshing change from the book of Leviticus, but we are still in the books of law. The big thing that we will see is beginning of the Israelites journey into the Promised Land. There will be a lot for us to learn. You can purchase the workbook here.
