“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
