When I read the words below (now paraphrased) from my Triumph30 devotional, I was like “okay, you are right”.
“I may be ‘irritated’ by repetition from the Lord but He will rather have that than have me hurrying off unto the next new information without me discerning how much something really matters to Him.”
Earlier, I had to listen to a particular message, “Love on the rock” from CCI media, a couple of times and I was getting tired of it but the Holy Spirit in me knew best (as always).
At a point, it was annoying like “why do I have to listen to it again”. Anyway, I listened to the message again and honestly, every time I did, I learned something. I was usually glad that I did.
A similar thing happened last year with reading 1 Corinthians 13 (what’s with me and love?).
Point is, the seeming repetition from God is for our good and we definitely can’t “over-learn” anything that’s helpful.
You should check out media.ccing.org (you’ll definitely love it 😌).
Had a similar experience? Please share in the comments.
Same happens with me each time I read a portion of the scripture again or even listen to a sermon over again. (By the way, media.cci.ng is amazinggggg!!! I just keep listening over and over)….
Thing is God is so so big. We can’t see all of Him at once. Plus He makes us see what He’ll have us see per time. So God may be teaching me about patience this season of my life and everything aligns and reminds me of that lesson even though I had read / listened to it before. It makes sense all over again!
That’s the beautiful thing about building a relationship with God beyond just a mechanical view of God…. There’s always something new (even though it’s not really new… Lol)
I loved reading this Oyin! Plus your blog is amazing 🙌🙌
You’re so right. There’s just so much to learn and He’s such a patient Teacher.
Really glad you enjoyed this.
Thank you so so much. 💚💚
You inspire me.✨✨
