The Lord is a warrior; the Lord is his name.
With social media so prevalent in our culture we are constantly posting photos, tweeting out what we are doing and facebooking old friends from years gone by. A lot of times at the end of our post we will put hashtags. What is a hashtag? It’s a way people post what they are doing, for example, #lovinglife, #home, #lifeofamom. Here is a question- if people were to look at your life, what hashtag would they give you? Would they say #awesomewoman, #gossip, #givingperson, #unfaithful, or #servant? That makes you think, doesn’t it? God had a hashtag in Exodus…it was #warrior. That would be a cool hashtag to have.
The point of this devotional is not for you to figure out a really cool hashtag for your post today. No, it’s deeper than that! The point is, when people look at your life are there any qualities that stand out? Obviously, we are way more than a hashtag in our life, but sometimes we need to pay attention to what type of reputation we are showing. What do the people in your world feel after they have been around you for an hour? Are they encouraged, confused, feel like they have been debating and they’ve lost because you never lose an argument? Are you brave enough to ask a close friend, a sister or your husband how they feel after hanging out with you for a little while?
I want people to be encouraged and to feel loved after they hang out with me. It is a good idea to examine the fruits of the spirit on a regular basis (Galatians 5:22) and allow those qualities to be what you are known for: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self -control. However, these traits do not come naturally… you must be walking with Jesus and daily dying to yourself and allowing His love to live through you. Remember, you are not alone in this journey no matter what your hashtag in life may say.
Thank You for being a warrior for me! You go to battle for me everyday against my enemies. Thank You! I want Your love to shine through in my life. I want my life to be a complete reflection of You, so that when people look at me, they actually “see” You. Fill me with Your love and grace. I give You this day…do with it as You will.
