November Gratitude Stone 24 God’s Word

November 24, 2016 0 By Mirm

Col. 3:16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Ps. 119:143 Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands give me delight.

I am raising my Ebenezer stone of remembrance for the Word of God. It is trustworthy and will never let me down.

The Bible is God’s “love letter” to us, telling us not only that He loves us, but showing us what He has done to demonstrate His love. It also tells us how we should live, because God knows what is best for us and He wants us to experience it. Never forget: The Bible is God’s Word, given to us so we can know and follow Him

God’s Word is living. I often find myself reading a passage of scripture which directly addresses a situation with which I am struggling right at that moment. A few years later I can read that same passage and find a nuance I had missed that is perfect for my new struggle. The scriptures are not dead, but living and dynamic, and applicable to every aspect of our lives, now and always. And Jesus Himself is the Word made flesh, made alive!

God’s Word has a power that is supernatural. It is the Sword of the Spirit, the only offensive piece of our spiritual armor. It has proven the most effective way to thwart the enemy.

The Bible has changed my life. I am grateful that God chose to tell me he loves me and gave me an instruction manual for how to best live.

Thank you for the Word; may it continue to shape my life.
