Rise and Shine JT friends!
Get your coffee, take a deep breath, find a quiet place and listen to today's text from Hebrews 4:12.
Consider the words that describe the Word of God in Hebrews 4:12.
Which description of God's Word stands out to you?
Write the description of God's Word that stands out to you the most on a note card, sticky note or piece of paper.Take the paper with you today to work, keep it on your desk, put it on the dashboard of your car....etc. As you go about your day, think about how the Bible describes God's Word upon the heart of man.
His Word acts quickly upon our hearts.
It is living and active. When we open and read it His truth begins to act upon our heart.
When we read the Bible we are pouring life into our stagnant hearts.
Truth has the power to show us what we are really like.
It discerns our thoughts and motives.
It pierces through our heart like nothing else can.
Maybe today you find yourself not wanting to open God's Word. Open it despite how you feel and ask God through prayer to give you a desire to read His Word. Ask Him to speak to your heart through the reading of His Word. Maybe you have taken God's Word for granted and have become complacent in thinking you know it all and don't need to read it often. Ask God through prayer to give you a love for His Word and to show you new things in His Word.
God, show me wondrous things in your law.
Open my eyes to see Your truth.
Give me a desire to read Your Word.
Thank You for giving me Your Word that helps me live.
Thank You for hearing my prayer.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
