For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Last night Jonathan was reading Scriptures to me and although I was listening, every time he said “Thus says the Lord”, I took exceptional notice.
We are so blessed in this country to have the freedom to own a copy of the Scriptures for ourselves, to pray privately and publically without threat of personal harm or death.
I believe the Lord is telling us that we should grab hold of those freedoms, appreciate them and seize every opportunity to pray and study His Word.
The Scripture IS THE INSPIRED WORDS OF GOD; therefore, when we read it, we are to do so with reverence! It isn’t a novel to be put on the bedside table. Neither is it a box to be checked for the day. God’s Word is to be studied, considered, valued, claimed, accepted and obeyed as It is THE Absolute Truth. It is a direct line of communication between our Lord and His children!
Some of us have differing opinions on directions. When doing something I am unclear about, I rely heavily upon them and still get things confused. Many times when I have tried something and just can’t get it to work, I call on customer support to walk me through the issues I am having
At times when we have something to do that is rather involved, we keep copious notes and refer back to them as a reminder about how to handle certain situations. Should we take no less care about our lives and turn to the Instruction Manuel our Creator so perfectly constructed for us? When we lack understanding, and we will from time to time, He even tells us to call on Him and He will GIVE us wisdom.. LIBERALLY! James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
Thank You for the Word
We give You praise that we live in a land
Where we can still freely worship You
We have no idea what it is like to not have access to Your Word
Please let us not take for granted the freedoms we have
We ask that You give us a hunger and thirst for the Scriptures
A desire to know You more
To love You
To bring You genuine worship and glad praises
We want to please You, Lord
Thank You for the joy You give us
For Your grace and tender mercies
In the Name of Jesus
I encourage every one of you to pray and study the Scriptures yourselves daily and let the Lord of All Creation speak and bless you each day. B
