There’s a problem in our hearts that is not a new problem. We have hearts that are prone to wander from God. Hillary Scott & The Scott Family sing of this very thing in their rendition of the famous hymn, “Come Thou Fount.” These lyrics will take us on a wonderful journey through Scripture this week.
Perhaps you’ll find a place to sit and stay for a while with the Source of all our fountains.
In this episode I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
- Reading in context
- The 30 Day Music Challenge
- How all of our fountains are in Him – Psalm 87:7
- Allowing God to tune our hearts like a master musician
- Understanding the significance of the Ebenezer stone – 1 Samuel 4-7
- The time “when completeness comes” – 1 Corinthians 13:9-12
- Wandering hearts are not a new phenomenon – Deuteronomy 31:16
- We can be sealed for “Thy courts above” – Ephesians 1:13-14

This Week’s Challenge
Choose a phrase that resonates with you from our hymn and spend some time in Scripture this week. Perhaps you could take your time through the story found in 1 Samuel chapters 4-7. It may just inspire you to pull out your own Ebenezer stone and add a symbol of remembrance to your walk with God. Perhaps you need to surrender to the call of the gospel — to believe and receive the seal of the Holy Spirit on your life. Pray and ask God to guide you this week, but don’t miss this opportunity to spend time with Him…in His Word, in prayer, in praise, and in remembrance.
