Sometimes all that we need is just a nudge…a reminder. The bible is a training manual for our lives, a guidebook, a compass, a book of Love…and to think that for years; I never touched it. Whay joy I have to see people in church comb through the pages of the bible getting fresh revelation with the same excitement as people get when they eat watermelon!
God is greatly excited when we take the time to read and meditate in HIs Word when we’re not in church. When no one is looking and when it seems that no one cares. It’s His way of talking, speaking to us! It’s our way of refreshing ourselves. It’s impossible to open the Bible in faith…in faith…and not get something out of it!
JUST READ THE WORDS BELOW AND SEE IF YOU DON’T FEEL BETTER, IT WILL LIFT YOU TO A HIGHER PLACE!
2 Peter 1:19And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
Isaiah 55: 6 Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.
8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
12 You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.
22All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.
Many have argued over the issue of the abundant life. Just what is it? It’s a life without lack. No lack in health. No lack in time. No lack in food. No lack in any form of provision that you need. No lack IN YOUR ABILITY TO REACH OUT AND GIVE AND CARE ABOUT AND FOR OTHERS. No lack in your living arrangements, your job, your marriage, your finances, your relationships and no lack in your efforts to serve God!
