Today's Devotional Thought

Reading & Loving God's Word
I want to share my heart with you today about something I am so absolutely passionate about and that is reading, understanding and living out God's word. You see, I believe that God's Word is alive and that it is filled with the answers we are all searching for, from how to raise our children, to how to be godly women, to how to love one another, to how to live life in a way that will bring about joy and abundance just to name a few. God's Word is full of promises and full of truth.
We just have to open it and study it.
By studying it and asking the Holy Spirit to give us a deeper understanding, we will begin to gain such knowledge of God's Word and how to apply what it says to our lives and in turn, live out those words and follow God in obedience.
I want to challenge you today to be in God's Word. Don't just read it and walk away and check it off your to do list for the day. Take time with the Lord and pray and ask Him to make his Word alive to you and in you. I have no doubt that being in God's Word everyday will change you.
Oh friends, I spent years reading God's Word because I knew I was supposed to. But in the last few years, because of tough circumstances, I turned to God's Word for comfort and peace and oh my, God opened my heart and mind to His Word. And I have fallen in love with it and have seen how through reading it and understanding it and believing it, I can live a life that I did not know existed. I have come to a greater understanding of who God is and what He has done for me and all that He has promised.
I want that for you friends. I want you to fall in love with God's Word.
Take time today to read it, understand it and then live it.
