ARE YOU A MARTHA OR MARY
NRT Contributor returns with a new devotional soaked in scripture guaranteed to lift your spirits and encourage spiritual growth.
There are so many things in life that you and I can choose to worry about—-our finances, job security, paying the bills, or a sickness you or a loved one may be facing. The list goes on and on. Our minds may continually be bombarded with worries and fears that the enemy throws at us, but we must learn to cast them down. As we spend quality time with our heavenly Father, those burdens will begin to vanish. It is not our job to fret. No, it is our job to trust God and obey. The Scriptures even tells us that the battle is the Lord’s:
All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.(1 Sam. 17:47)
Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. (Exodus 14:13-14)
Sometimes all God wants you and me to do is to be still and let Him fight our battles. That is hard to do because we sometimes feel as though we have to do something to help God in our situation.
Let’s look at the Bible story where Jesus was at the home of Martha and Mary. (Luke 10:38-41). As Jesus and His disciples were on their way, He came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to Him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what He said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to Him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work for myself? Tell her to help me!” “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken from her.”
