What Passage of Scripture Has God Put on Your Heart?

What Passage of Scripture Has God Put on Your Heart?

by Janis Cox

God-Speaks-Through-Scripture

A number of years ago I attended a Spirit-Filled weekend retreat with 40 women. We went away to a monastery, with our speaker, Ruth Conard. I knew that God wanted to use this time to speak to me. I had been praying for this. And He answered me.

God spoke through Ruth’s talks, through friendships and through our quiet times.

But He also talked through a Scripture passage.

After one break time we returned to the conference area to find slips of paper upside down on each chair. As I chose a chair, I discovered this passage on my slip of paper, “Feed my lambs”, John 21:15.

I had just begun to journal and this Scripture spurred me on to start writing for Jesus. After this conference I started my first blog. I have continued to blog ever since.

In order to feed His lambs:

I needed to go deeper into His Word;
I needed to read more and more;
I needed to pray more.

I continue my early morning daily study patterns because Jesus has called me to FEED HIS LAMBS.

What passage has God put on your heart?

  1. Ruth,
    It is wonderful to see how God places His Word on our hearts. Thanks for commenting.
    I love your Scripture and that does fit what God has called you to do.
    Blessings,
    Janis

  2. Janis, Thanks for sharing this Scripture with us. I just wrote a post sharing Isaiah 61:1, which is similar. http://ruthlsnyder.wordpress.com/2014/03/14/gods-calling-on-my-life/
