Can words light our way? Is it really that important to read and know Godís word? YES!!! and YES!!!
A godly woman gave me this thought regarding the Bible "A garden to find Jesus and a mine of jewels to live by" Oh how so very true. Through the writings in the Bible I came to know our Lord Jesus and how very precious the jewels contained in the Bible. Each time I read or re-read a passage, chapter, or book in the Holy Bible I find more love and treasure to praise God for.
Taking time alone to study, pray and listen to the LORD is indeed quality time with our Father. It is a time to bond. Iíve heard insightful sermons and bible studies. Iíve attended uplifting revivals, and been thoroughly engrossed in congregational prayer, praise and worship time. Yet nothing overall has edified or moved me as much as reading the Word of God for myself.
Godís Word to us is very personal and always right on time. It is through study and reading that we learn of Godís will for us. The Holy Spirit will guide, convict and comfort as we need. Our heavenly Father reveals His heart to us through those 66 books of the Bible. Jesus is the best teacher.
As I study more and pray for understanding the LORD has given me more insight. The Word of God is my treasure, enriching my spirit. My path grows brighter with each reading. I no longer stumble through life but walk boldly with His Word to light my path so my feet do not slip. Jesus is drawing me closer and equipping me for life through the Word.
Are you looking for spiritual food? Do you desire to know and love Jesus more? ? Do you need guidance?
(Yes!! Yes!! and Yes!!)†
