Today’s Encouragement is Hebrews 4:12a ESV For the word of God is living and active…
The Word of God is Living-
The Word of God is discerning the thoughts and intentions of our hearts – Heb 4:12b.
His word lights the way for us – Psalm 119:105
His word endures forever – Isaiah 40:8
His Word is the Light for all people – John 1:4
Some people say, “I just can’t understand the Bible. It’s too complicated. So, I just listen to what the preacher says.” My friend, the Bible is God’s Truth provided to you and me, carefully handed down through generations… so that we might know the Truth which sets us Free! (John 8:32)
Do you need someone to chew your food for you, like a mother bird? Maybe as an infant, but as an adult, most of us are capable of feeding ourselves. God’s Word is our food, daily bread, wisdom for life, hope, and the Truth.
So please, if you haven’t already, get a Bible in a simple translation, ESV or NLT for example. These are designed for clarity. Commit to reading a little each day, and return to this commitment if you’ve stopped, we all need to be fed, daily!
Then just Ask Him – Pray. Ask God to help you understand His Word. It’s His idea! It’s His purpose and plan for you and the purpose of His Word, so that He can speak deeply, clearly, directly, and powerfully to you!
Father, draw us near to You through Your word. Your living, eternal, Word of Truth.
