Like a Moth to a flame...
DEEPER STILL – Week 1 #Light
We are created by God for God, for Him to have relationship with us, just as a moth is made to be guided by the moon, we are made to be guided by God. To be guided by God we must know Him and build or invest in the relationship with Him, for us to have conversation with Him, spend time with Him, know God and let God know us.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
