I used to on occasion re-post my older devotions; back then a blank day of posting just couldn’t be. I’ve had many blank days since September 16, 2015.
So just for the good of it, here’s a repeat.
That’s what I heard Charles say. Charles Billingsley. I was watching/listening to a You Tube. Charles was in concert at a church in Macon, Georgia. And right about 30 minutes in he was encouraging the congregation and he said reckon. And I was off!
Reckon. (Click here for Webster’s definition)
Some would say that’s a pretty southern word. It’s a godly word too. The Scripture passage I was thinking of was Romans 8:18. There Paul utilized it as an accounting term. Reckon. Count it. Count it as so. By the way in the KJV you will find Reckon 33 times. Here’s a link in case you want to check it out. HERE
Romans 8: 18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. [source]
And so we count and if we count it so, I reckon that reckoning will change how we live. And I reckon, I need to do some reckoning.
I reckon. Seriously smiling here. 🙂
Now. One more thing and I’ll press publish.
That Charles Billingsley you tube? You got an hour and 28 minutes? I reckon it’s worth every minute I’ve invested. Perhaps you will too.
And a bit (translation: a few minutes) before the I reckon, he sings a song, and a certain portion of the lyrics is this: You wrapped my soul inside Your Arms. I don’t know about you but upon hearing those words I was wrapped in love this morning; and not just me but I saw in those words my Girls wrapped in His Arms too. Don’t you reckon some worship was going on? 🙂
I reckon I better close this epistle. 🙂
