October 7, 2014 DEVOTED TO GOD’S WORD
God’s word has everything we need in it. He has created us and knows what we need. What better person is there to go to for direction than the One who created us? When we are devoted to God’s word, we will know more about Him. We will know more about what to do when problems occur. We will know more about what He is calling us to do. Being devoted to God’s word will help bring peace to our lives, joy to our hearts and love to others. It will bring us prosperity and success.
Joshua 1:8 “Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, thank You for Your word. Thank You for Your book of Instruction that helps us know You more and what we are to do in our lives. Help us to remember to study it, meditate on it and share it with others. Create in us a strong desire to be devoted to Your word and use it as a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Meditating on God’s word will show our devotion to Him.
Hiding God’s word in our hearts will help us resist temptation.
Psalm 119:11 “I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” (NLT)
God knows exactly what we need and when we need it. His answers are in His word.
God’s word has the ability to guide our feet and direct our paths. So what’s keeping us from reading it?
Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” (NLT)
Focus: God’s word is available to you. Go to it. Read it. Study it. Know it is meant to help you.
