Treasured Word

My foot has held fast to His path; I have kept His way and not turned aside. I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
Job 23:11‭-‬12 NASB

🌹Lord God of Your Word. God of truth. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. As I receive instruction from Your mouth, establish Your words in my heart that my heart will not turn back, and my steps will not deviate from Your way. How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth! It would still bring me comfort, and I would leap for joy, even in unrelenting pain, that I have not denied the words of the Holy One. God, I ask that You establish Your word to me, Your servant, as that which produces reverence for You. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
Psalms 119:105 NASB/Job 22:22 NASB/Psalms 44:18 NASB/Psalms 119:103‭ NASB/

Attention to the Word – Part 2

And blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.
Proverbs 16:20b NASB

Where does trust come from? Isn’t trust built in relationships by spending time and getting to know someone? We are instructed to trust in the Lord.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5 NASB

But where does trust in the Lord come from? It comes from knowing Jesus. And how do we come to the knowledge of Jesus? Through the word of God.

Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
Psalms 119:105 NASB

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord And whose trust is the Lord.
Jeremiah 17:7 NASB

Blessed is the one who not only trusts IN the Lord but whose trust IS the Lord!!
Wow!!

🌹Lord God, I want to taste Your words and know their sweetness. May Your words be sweeter than honey to my mouth. As I taste I ask for wisdom and understanding and surrender to Your will in full trust of who You are and whose I am. In Jesus name, amen.
(Psalms 119:103 NASB)

Written For Us

For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 15:4‭-‬6 NASB

🌹Are you disheartened, discouraged, feel like giving up? The word of God was written for our instruction. Within the pages of your Bible you’ll find hope so that you may persevere and be encouraged.
What’s stopping you?

Lord God, draw us to Your holy Word for the hope we need. In the perseverance and encouragement you give help us to be of the same mind with one another, the mind of Christ, so that we may use it to be glory to You, our God and Father.  Amen

Power of The Word

The prophet who has a dream may relate his dream, but let him who has My word speak My word in truth. What does straw have in common with grain?” declares the Lord. “Is not My word like fire?” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer which shatters a rock?
Jeremiah 23:28‭-‬29 NASB

The Word spoken rightly, in truth is powerful! The Word of God is like fire, all consuming everywhere it spreads.
The Word of God shatters, destroying falsehood, lies, deception.

If you have God’s word speak His truth. Someone needs to hear.

🌹Jesus is the Word. (John 1:14).
for our God is a consuming fire.
Hebrews 12:29 NASB

A Disciple of Christ

So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
John 8:31‭-‬32 NASB

Belief in Jesus in not enough. Even the demons believe in Jesus and they shudder (James 2:19).
Jesus instructed “those Jews who had believed” that if they continued in the word, “then you are truly disciples of Mine”.
Why should we stay, continue, in the word? Because Jesus said to but also because “you will know the truth, and it will make you free”.

In this world of so many differing views it is hard to tell truth from fiction. The word of God will set the truth before you and in that there is freedom.

🌹 Are you a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ?

Is God Dwelling Today?

My dwelling place also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be My people. And the nations will know that I am the Lord who sanctifies Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever.” ’ ”
Ezekiel 37:27‭-‬28 NASB

The Old Testament speaks of the dwelling of God amongst His people. His dwelling with them would be known among all the nations.

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NASB

The New Testament speaks of God who came in the flesh, Jesus Christ, and dwelt amongst us. His glory was seen.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
John 14:26 NASB

Today, God is seen in the believer by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. All nations will know that God is Lord by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in His people.

🌹Do others see Jesus in you?

Present Every Person Complete in Christ

For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the Lord and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel.
Ezra 7:10 NASB

Is your heart set on knowing, studying God’s word? Knowing it and walking by God’s word? Practicing leads to telling others about God’s awesome plan. God’s plan is for you to walk closely with Him in an intimate, loving relationship.

If you are not reading daily and putting it into practice, how about starting today. Besides changing your life you could change someone else’s life.

🌹We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ.
Colossians 1:28 NASB

Words of The Book

“Go, inquire of the Lord for me and for those who are left in Israel and in Judah, concerning the words of the book which has been found; for great is the wrath of the Lord which is poured out on us because our fathers have not observed the word of the Lord, to do according to all that is written in this book.”
2 Chronicles 34:21‭NASB

Regarding this “book which has been found”; I wonder where it had been and for how long. I wonder how many Bibles are sitting on shelves or packed in boxes that are unread. And now we stand in wonder at the wrath of God being poured out in the world today. Could it be because we “have not observed the word of the Lord, to do all that is written in this book”?

🌹Lord God, as I open Your Holy word this morning, open my heart and soul to understanding so that I may honor You in my life by living according to all that is written in Your word.  Amen.

Words of This Book

“Go, inquire of the Lord for me and the people and all Judah concerning the words of this book that has been found, for great is the wrath of the Lord that burns against us, because our fathers have not listened to the words of this book, to do according to all that is written concerning us.”
2 Kings 22:13 NASB

Wrath because they did not listened or obey the Word of God. Is there any wonder wrath is upon us now?

🌹Open the Word of God, the Bible. Read it as often as you have opportunity. It will be a blessing to you if you obey and it opens the door to God and who He is.

Heed the Word of the Lord

O generation, heed the word of the Lord. Have I been a wilderness to Israel, Or a land of thick darkness? Why do My people say, ‘We are free to roam; We will no longer come to You’?
Jeremiah 2:31 NASB

God is a God of justice. Holy. Perfect. He is also a God of love for His people. He wants the best for us. Loving and walking with Him according to His Holy Word in the light of His countenance.

The words, “We are free to roam; We will no longer come to You” breaks my heart. The compassion of God being rejected by the ones He loves. Rejected by the very ones He wants to experience His awesomeness, His abounding love, His contentment, His peace, His joy, and so on.

🌹For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:11‭-‬13 NASB
