Today, I’m thankful for my Bible. I’m always thankful for the Bible, but some days I am really reminded of how amazing God’s Word is. When I find connections, when I see parallels, when some deeper understanding is reached. These are all times when I am simply amazed at the wisdom of God in the revealed Word. When I see how the Word is actually connected to my life and gives me direction right where I am, I am thankful.
My goal today is to live by the Bible. Obviously, that ought to be an every day goal. However, sometimes I see things in Scripture that I’m really not living up to. Then I look at my life and realize following what I see in Scripture is an upheaval. Then I think, “My family will never go for this.” Then I start talking myself out of what I see. My goal is to bring it up, to talk about it with family, and then to live it.
Holy God, thank You for Your Word. Enlighten my eyes to see and my heart to understand Your Word. Strengthen my resolve and discipline my life to surrender to Your Word. You are Lord. Jesus is Lord. I am all Yours today; do with me as You will.
