Writing for BibleJournal seven years ago seemed like a crazy idea initially.  Going through the bible in a year and having seven writers each week share their reflections, experiences, and wisdom they discovered as they dug into His Word and posted about it.  Yet, I was on fire for the Lord, and I had been able to see through my own and others’ life transformations in the making.  Still, to read through the Bible in a year and write about it all.  Not sure if I would be able to do this.  (I know to realize those thoughts come from the enemy speaking.)

Seven years later, we are still writing.  Like yesterday, when Lyden talked about the blueprint the Lord provides. Every day we get to share His Word, we provide blueprints to a well-lived life.  Whether we are reading, writing, praying, or listening to His Word, it is a day given to Him.

“Incline your ear and come to Me.
Listen, that you may live;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
Isaiah 55:3

What about you? How does your morning, day, or night change when you are in His Word?   Let me count the ways…

Our reading today is Leviticus 12-14, Psalm 111, and Hebrews 5

The following verses grabbed my focus for today.

2Great are the works of the Lord,
    studied by all who delight in them.
Full of splendor and majesty is his work,
    and his righteousness endures forever.

We always take a detailed and focused interest in the projects and activities of those we deeply love.  So it is natural that we should love to study the Word of God, beginning with the Bible.

His Word is living and active (Hebrews 4:12)

Each day you spend reading, studying, and living out His Word is the opportunity to provide you with the weapons you need for our war.  You are given divine directions and instructions concerning anything you have going on in your life at this given moment.  The knowledge we receive in the Word leads to a direct path to eternal glory.

I thank you, Lord, for your Word; it is a lamp to our feet (Psalm 119:105 )


Have a blessed day!
