All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 NASB
The Word of God is powerful. It is the very words of God. It is if God himself was sitting down in front of you and speaking.
God, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, spoke through men who wrote His Words down for all generations to read and to get to know God.
This is why the Scriptures are so important. This is why you should read the Bible. God will meet you there between the pages.
It is amazing how the Word of God can speak to you in the circumstances that you find yourself in. People say things like, “I needed that” or “It’s like that was written for me!” It was written for you! It was written for me!
Don’t neglect the Word of God in your life! If you do, you’ll be missing out!
I need to not only read the Word, but I need to meditate on it and reflect on it. The Word of God is too important to just power read through.
I need to ask myself, “Is the Lord trying to say something to me today? What can I learn? What can I apply to my life?”
Lord, thank You for Your Word. Help me to desire to spend time reading it. Help me to understand it and apply it to my life. Meet me there between the pages.
