Morning Coffee 7/25/15 Why Do You Run? Pt1

“The Lord is my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident.” (2 Psalm 27:1-3 NLT)

Hello Family, from January of 2007 to January of 2008, is was in Teen Challenge which is basically a God base rehab. I went there because of an addiction to pornography. In that year span, I was cut off from all media. No computer, phone, iPod or anything we had limited tv. But that was a good thing because it forced me to spend my free time with God. There were two houses that we used and each house had a spot I always went to for my time with God. Let me tell you those times were some of the most revealing experiences with God. And now seven years later God is calling me back (not to Teen Challenge) but to that level of quality time with Him.

In Psalm 27 King David lays out why purposed quality time with God is important. The Lord is going to always be there when we need Him. When persecution comes we will have no choice but to run to God! There are going to be times when the smooth jazz music does not help, there will be times when the self-help books won’t do! There will be times when the tv preachers won’t give you enough strength. There will be times when morning coffee devotions is not good enough!

Everything else will fail and there will only be God waiting for you to submit and soak in His presence. God is calling me back to those awesome times had with Him in teen challenge. Now I (Brandon Sawyer) must make time and make it PRIORITY to get with my heavenly Father!

 

Much Love & God Bless

  1. I’ve always appreciated your articles, this one as well. So much of what you write seems to echo the need in my own heart or my own struggles at the moment! This one also: I was feeling a need this morning to seriously cut back on my computer use this coming week and make spiritual matters a priority. Now I see you’re feeling the same. What all will the Lord show us if we draw closer to Him?

  2. Along a similar line Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed., for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” OT/NT out of context/in context-very ecouraging IMO. – God Bless
