Biblical Phrases — The Living Word!

Day 2218: Headed off on a 3 week absence from home the last two weeks being a missions trip to Korea, China, and DPRK. Pray for a safe and blessed trip! Postings may be sporadic and a little reposting might be in order . . .

Scripture: For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

Thoughts/questions:  All of us have read something in which the words were not merely printed in black and white. Those words jumped off the page and into our minds and imaginations. They truly were words that had momentary life.

However, God’s word does not depend on the reader’s interest. No, it has a life of its own – not only for the present moment, but alive far after the words were read. And their life isn’t to entertain, as they bring a sword! A sword to our heart!

Last time I checked, an sword inserted in a body brings pain. God’s word does the same at times. A daily dose of God’s living word brings life to us as well. We all do a number of things daily, so why not the reading of God’s word. Today would be an excellent day to begin!

Suggested prayer: Father God, I struggle with being consistent in my devotions. Help me to daily receive Your living word . . .
