Hebrews 4:12Hebrews 4:12
English: World English Bible - WEB

12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

“For the word of God is alive and active.  Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

This verse is a powerful reminder of why we are to daily read and think on the word of God.  If we are truly seeking the Lord then prayerfully reading His word will be a continuous part of our relationship with Him.  To prayerfully read the word of God in a thoughtful manner that allows it to soak into the fabric of our heart is key to growing in deeper relationship with the Lord.

The writer of Hebrews ensures us we won’t be disappointed~

The Word of God is~

Active and Alive Daily fresh and relevant to sustain us like the daily mana sustained the Israelites in the desert.

Penetrating Sharpness– Personalized and specific to our lives needs for healing and restoration.

Judges– Reveals His truth in our thought life and hearts.

Lord, as we read your word this day open our hearts and minds to experience your word as it is alive, active, with penetrating-sharpness, and truthful judge of us each individually.  We desire to be drawn closer in daily relationship with you.  Speak to us through your Word.  Thank you for your word and it’s life giving power.

In Jesus Holy name, Amen

assures us that we are not alone.  The Lord is there and can relate to each of our situations.  His desire is for us to overcome.  He is faithful and will provide a way out.  Our job is to turn to him, trust him, and follow him with endurance even when we can’t see the way out clearly.   Only he can make all things work for good.

Preserver~ He is faithful!

Week # 29 Philippians 4:6-7

Philippians 4:6-7Philippians 4:6-7
English: World English Bible - WEB

6 In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

WP-Bible plugin

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Prayer is our anchor that secures the peace of God in our lives.  We  are able to rise above the circumstances of life through trusting thankfulness with the Lord’s peace guarding our hearts and minds.

 

Anxiousness is a weight that pulls us away from the amazing peace of God.  Let’s remember to stay anchored in prayer through ALL the circumstances of life and rise above!

14 This is the boldness which we have toward him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he listens to us. 15 And if we know that he listens to us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions which we have asked of him.

“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  And if we know that he hears us— whatever we ask we know that we have what we asked of him.”

He hears your heartbeat.  He will keep it beating to the rhythm of his will for our lives.

Will we trust him?

Will we believe him?

Will we ask him?

Week # 27 2 Corinthians 3:17-18

2  Corinthians 3:17-18

” Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Lord is, there is freedom.  And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

Happy 4th of July!  As we take time to celebrate the freedoms we have as American citizens let’s also celebrate the freedom we have in Jesus through the Spirit of the Lord.

When we walk in step with the Spirit of the Lord we will experience the freedom he brings through his transforming power.  Think about it.  We are free to love others, offer peace, give forgiveness, give grace,  give praise, give thanks, and ……..  We are free to experience these benefits because of the transforming power of the Spirit.  Who renews our heart from evil desires to pure and holy desires that bring Glory to God.

Let the freedom of the Spirit reign in our lives!!!
