For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before His eyes, and He is the one to whom we are accountable (Hebrews 4:12-13 NLT).
I am in complete and utter awe how God’s Word is an active force that cannot be stopped.
There are times we skim the Bible or memorize words, without opening our hearts to the power embedded in His truth.
We are small, like grasshoppers.
We will not escape His graceful pursuit of our souls.
Are we Jonah’s who fool ourselves into fleeing from the One who orchestrates our lives? Or are we Moses’ who will climb mountains to hear His voice?
As I prepare to speak next month, I am meditating on the way God moves, not only in ways we can see, but how He transforms beneath the surface.
If you are someone who fears what lies beneath daily tasks, routine greetings, and your morning devotion … be encouraged. He is with you and for you.
Truly the world does not invite vulnerability, but Our Mighty Loving God requires it.
Jesus came, not to condemn, but to save … save us from lies, wounds, pasts that won’t die unless they are exposed, unless we become naked before Him.
Join me in this prayer:
Dear Jesus, Our Lord and Savior,
Lord, we praise Your name! Thank You for giving us the Holy Bible, Your Word which speaks to the unseen, which heals the broken, and makes beauty from despair’s ashes.
Lord, we ask You bring Your people to be brave in our vulnerability before You, that we not fear but rather revere Your holiness.
Lord, help us to receive Your Word for our individual lives today. Grow our discernment that we may know Your truth and refuse false messages. Help up, Lord, be an active participant, growing our faith each and every day we have breath.
In Your precious name,
