I had a root canal today. So, Gloriadelia is going to be much shorter and sweeter than usual. Well, shorter, anyway…
Let’s just get right to the root of the matter. We all need to read the Bible every day. Period.
“If this stuff (the Bible) gets in you, down in your guts, it’s going to shape you in ways beyond your asking or imagining.” Mark Buchanan
Reading and DOING the Bible will change us down deep where it counts, right at the root. 🙂
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 RSV
“I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.” Psalm 119:16
Are you writing these down?! These are great verses! And here’s another:
“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119:16
So, you wanna avoid a lot of pain in your life? Then “get this stuff.. down in your guts”. READ it! MEMORIZE it! and DO it! (sorry if I sound a little cranky. I had a root canal, after all…)
Pray with me? (click on highlighted words/phrases for verse references):
” Father, You are and You are a rewarder of them that earnestly seek You. I’m earnestly seeking You now and asking You to change my heart to LOVE your Word. Oh, may I delight in Your Word and not neglect it. May I agree with these words in the Bible: Thy words were found by me and I ate them and they became for the me a joy and the delight of my heart.
In Jesus’ name, amen!”
