TITLE: Worth in Repeating
By Amy Lewis


Worth in Repeating

Sound Judgment … Must be something we repeat, to protect us from Our Enemy of this fallen world and other spiritual realms. We sacrifice ourselves without it. (Proverbs 3:21-26)
Guarding our hearts will protect our lives as we repeatedly walk forward on our current path to the place in our lives where God is leading us. (Psalm 4:23 Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life).
Repeating the awesome promises of God is powerful and there are so many to choose from. The Bible is a Promise, and we can tailor make a list of them just for ourselves, adding them as we go along. These promises build up our faith into a mighty fortress and carry us beyond the doubt of our human condition – and what a frail human condition we are in without God.
Accountability to another brother or sister, repeatedly, over and over and often, to guide us and remind us that without accountability we can drown in our deeply hidden secrets, and we need a gentle hand to guide us back to the path God has placed us on. It is a path where he will always meet us, repeatedly, every time, with a little nudge from a friend.
Loving, enduring, forgiving, accepting, rescuing, encouraging, repeatedly, as though it were second nature. Repeated action, as simple as drawing a breath, over time to repeatedly love as God loves us. It is within us.
Repeatedly engaging in the “Good Fight” of faith (1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses). Knowing that the results will be in what we receive if we do not give up – and how often do we want to do that?
Getting up … Praying … Thanking … Sharing … Attending church … Fellowship … Praising … Worshipping our God … Repeatedly …
Struggling … and always freeing ourselves again and again with God’s promises. God’s words are all promises. Every single story REPEATS the freedom we have in Him, repeated freedom IN HIM.
Repeatedly doing these things we are freeing ourselves from the Enemy … the one who prowls around, waiting and watching for weaknesses that appear in us suddenly, the enemy sneaks his way into the tiny cracks in our souls that we forgot to fill with God when we don’t repeat fellowship with him. (1 Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour). Repeatedly be alert with watchful eyes.
Repeatedly, God is waiting patiently, and repeatedly we must remember and know “God is God”. In all things, HE IS GOD. KNOW THIS. (Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth”).
In repeating and learning and repeating and speaking and repeating and knowing … God has it all in his control, right where he wants everything.
God takes great joy in knowing we are repeating what we need to do to be one with Him.
Repeating becomes a method of success. Repeating is a way of knowing we are where we are for his purpose.
When we are in Christ, we are IN A GOOD, SAFE, SECURE place by repeating these things.
Repeating the Great, mighty and living Word of God brings great benefit into our lives.
Repeating and knowing that He takes great joy in these things, for in the repeating He is enthralled with our beauty … And honoring Him with his words makes us more beautiful (to him) still. (Psalm 45:11 the king is enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord).
In all of these things, there is worth in Repeating.

This is lovely and filled with great reminders. I think we all need reminding from time to time which is precisely the reason God created repetition. Good job.
