Application: I was once given the image of finding God's presence through regular devotion and prayer in God's word as a shovel. This shovel, these shovels help dig into what God is saying to me daily. It is a vast improvement than my previous form of having to go and look for some verse or scripture when the time felt right.
Shovels helps me dig into the soil of God's word so that when I need to share some Good News, some helpful connection to God's presence in the life of others around me, I don't need to go looking it is already happening. I can't help but think of all the times, since this revelation, I have used the phrase 'in my devotions today.'
Prayer: lord equip us with your word and give us these shovels to deepen our relationship with you.
