... Whose words you are reading

Almighty God – the One who spoke the world into being, upholds the universe by the word of His power (Heb 1:3). He breathed life into Adam to make him a living soul (Gen 2:7) and breathed every word of the Bible you hold in your hand (2 Tim 3:6).

Let His words breathe life into you today.

… you aren’t just reading

Every time you open the Bible, something supernatural happens. Jesus promised the Holy Spirit would indwell every believing heart: “rivers of living water will flow from within them” (John 7:38). If you’re in Jesus, the Holy Spirit reads Scripture with you, refreshing your soul, reminding you of truth and building your faith.

Ask the Holy Spirit to revive your mind and heart with truth today.

… God wants to speak to you

God delights in revealing Himself to His people. He loves His character and nature to be your delight. When you study His Word, you will begin to see Him more clearly with the ‘eyes of your heart’ (Eph 1:18). Of all the voices in the world, we can be assured His voice in Scripture is true; as we read, He makes known His words to us. And we will be forever changed.

We read. He speaks. We are transformed.

God knows you better than you know yourself. He knows you are ‘but dust’ (Ps 103:14), and that your ‘spirit is willing’ but your ‘flesh is weak’ (Matt 26:41). His grace is enough for each new day and never stops drawing you back in, onwards, upwards. Take comfort that His power in you is greatest in your weakness. (2 Cor 12:9).

Surrender to His grace that secures you not only for today, but forever.
