Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – August 31, 2014
“The word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word that was preached to you. 1 Peter 1:25
What does it mean to get a word from the Lord? It means that God, in His infinite wisdom, personalizes His principles for each of His children. The Bible is an individualized love letter delivered to each disciple of Jesus for his or her unique situation. A word from the Lord gives hope in the face of discouragement, wisdom for understanding, and courage to confront injustice. Scriptures planted in the human heart are seeds of faith for the soul.
We are blessed when we seek counsel from the wise, but when we receive direction from almighty God in His Word, we can rest secure. The Bible is the baseline for our beliefs and behavior. It is the first and the final say for faith-based living. A day without scriptural intake for our spirit is like missing three meals for our body. God’s Word nourishes our soul, is a trailblazer for truth, and leads us into His very best for our life. His Holy Spirit brings to life the pages of His Word in prayer. Study to know the truth, then listen to apply the truth. Scripture gives stamina to your faith.
“Consult God’s instruction and the testimony of warning. If anyone does not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn” (Isaiah 8:20).
