Please shine your light upon my family.
Give us strength to overcome all of the
difficulties that we are dealing with now
and protect us against any and all problems
we may encounter in the future.
O Lord, please bring us together as we
are meant to be. May the love that binds
us only grow stronger as we fulfill the destiny
you have laid out for us.
Grant my family forgiveness for any sins we
have committed. May we also forgive one
another Lord, as it is sometimes difficult to do.
Bless us Lord,
In your name I pray,
Today, I will seek You by reading Your Word.
Now this is eternal life – that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you sent.
The Resource... The Word!
Read All About It
Bible Reading: Psalm 119:89-96
Forever, a Lord, your word stands firm in heaven. Psalm 119:89
YOU CAN’T ALWAYS BELIEVE what you read in the newspapers, especially the weird ones at the checkout line. The following headlines showed up in newspapers–real newspapers, in fact:
But the Bible is something to trust your whole life to. It is “God-breathed.” It isn’t here today, gone tomorrow. It was here before you arrived and will be here after you make your exit. Why? Because it is God’s Word. You can read the paper for daily information, but for error-free direction and inspiration, you need your nose in the Bible.
Dr. Henrietta Mears wrote, “Do you come to the Bible with such eagerness? Do you read with that purpose and persistence? The Bible is not a book of texts-it is a story-it is a revelation, to be begun and pursued and ended as we start and continue other books. Don’t trifle with the Bible…. We must come to it in a commonsense fashion. Believe that every book is about something and read and reread until you find out what that something is.’”
Behind and beneath the Bible, above and beyond the Bible, is the God of the Bible. Whenever you open your Bible to read, you find the eternal, loving God waiting for you. And what he shows you will be totally true.
REFLECT: Why do you read the Bible? What are you looking for? Are you finding God?
PRAY: Tell God you want to get hold of him in a deeper way each time you read his Word.
