The wonder of God’s Word is that if you’re willing, God will make His truth come alive to you. His truth will become real to you.

I read that a good blog should have a thousand words or less to keep it palatable. In our busier than ever world, a long read is said to discourage or turn people away. It is easy to become overwhelmed when faced with one more to do thing, on our already long list of things to do.
God inspired men and women in the bible and their lives became alive, living epistles to quote Peter. Each one of God’s chosen vessels told their story by believing God and becoming obedient to His commands and then walking these out.
Their stories include and describe their faith in the face of fear, their perseverance through adversity, their endurance through trials, but most of all their devoted love for God and His promised Messiah that was bringing salvation and deliverance to Israel and to God’s people.
God inspired the bible and holy men of God penned the words detailing; where He had been, where He was, and where He was going. Isn’t it wonderful that these words continue to inspire us daily? The word of God is indeed alive and powerful. His Word empowers believers, walking us right into Salvation arms, sets us apart through obedience, into sanctification, and then showing us that as doers of His Word we have been liberated. His word becomes precious like gold and is spiritually discerned. Through Salvation and Sanctification, and Liberation, we become spiritually alive and are set free by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Our sins are not counted against us, our sins are forgiven. God promises to not remember us as sinners but sees us as His children and heirs, heirs of the promise. We are no longer bound, nor entangled, with the cares of the world. Of course we have responsibility to the world because as Jesus teaches us through teaching His disciples, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. So as it is in heaven so shall it be on earth, right? Yes!
Now as His body, we are to govern from a seat of authority; we are not fighting for authority. We are seated in heavenly places, far above all principalities. We are seated with Christ Jesus, let that sink in. Ephesians 2:1-10
In the Hebrew language each letter tells a story. So our early patriarchs were in essence telling a story with each word they wrote.
If you haven’t begun reading your bible, as a love story of redemption through Christ finished work on the Cross, His death burial and resurrection, I challenge you to pick up your bible and ask God to speak to you through His word. You don’t have to read an entire book in one setting, which would overwhelm you if you are just beginning. Just begin reading and trust His Precious Holy Spirit to speak to you. I promise if you make the choice, God will make His word come alive in you.
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.” Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21NKJV)
“THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM A FTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD: I WILL IMPRINT M Y LAWS UPON THEIR HEART, A ND ON THEIR MIND I WILL INSCRIBE THEM [producing an inward change],” He then says, “A ND THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS ACTS I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE [no longer holding their sins against them].”
(HEBREWS 10:16-17 AMP)
God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you and give you Shalom.
Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
