Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. — Psalm 119:105 (AMPC)
Adapted from the resource Ending You Day Right – by Joyce Meyer
The Bible is written as a personal letter to you from God. He speaks to you, meets your needs, and guides your steps through His written Word. He reveals truth, wisdom and teaches you how to live.
Without spending time in His Word, we can’t hear His voice clearly and accurately. Knowing the written Word protects us from deception—it’s our standard for truth. Listening for God’s voice without being in His Word consistently opens you up to hearing voices that are not from God, which is why it’s so important to not only read His Word, but to study it. There may be times when God speaks something to you that is outside a specific chapter and verse of the Bible, but it will always be in agreement with His Word.
Today, spend some time (even if it’s just a few minutes) reading a little of God’s personal letter to you, and ask Him to speak to your heart.
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for the gift of Your Word, and for the peace and direction and provision I can find in it. Please reveal more and more truth to me as I spend time getting to know Your Word better. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
