Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. Acts 17:11 NASB
Do you know the truth? The truth found in the word of God, the Bible? Or are you trusting your eternity to a man in a pulpit, a “Christian” friend, the heritage passed on by your parents? We can be blessed by all of the above but how do we know it is spoken correctly?
We need to examine the Scriptures, Bible, daily. Yes, daily, to know the truth. The best part is that you can rejoice when you know the person in front of you is speaking the truth and you can add to the conversation because you know what they are talking about. It is also great affirmation of God’s word and His ways when you can agree with and understand what is being said. God reveals Himself through His word.
🌹 Now is the time apply yourself to His word so you can see how awesome God is!!
Continually Seeking Him,
P.S. There are lots of Bible reading plans out there for “Read the Bible in a Year”.
Coming before the Lord with a heart so heavily burdened?
Believing you have been called for “such a time as this”? (Esther 4:14)
Questioning the calling because things aren’t going according to your plan?
But because you made the right choice to go before the Lord, you find encouragement and affirmation?
The battle belongs to the Lord and His will be done. During my quiet time this morning, the thought came to mind that I need to put on the armor of God. My additional “going deeper” passages for the day included Ephesians 6:11:
Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
His Word still speaks today to burdened hearts. Seek Him. I now face this day without the burden, encouraged, and knowing without a doubt I am right where God has placed me for such a time as this.
