Day 83

One of the reasons that so many Christians do not read the Bible is because they either don't know or have forgotten that the Word is alive. Hebrews 4:12 says: "For God's Message is full of life and power, and is keener than the sharpest two-edged sword. It pierces even to the severance of soul from spirit, and penetrates between the joints and the marrow, and it can discern the secret thoughts and purposes of the heart." (Weymouth New Testament) Because the Word is alive, it can have a life-changing impact on your day-to-day living.

God reveals Himself through the Word. As He reveals Himself to you, you can expect your life to change because you are getting to know God, Himself, not just about Him. You may know about our President but you probably don't know the President. There is a difference between knowledge about and personal knowledge of someone. Isn't that exciting that you can actually learn to personally know the Creator of the Universe through His Word. It is like having a personal E-Mail from God every day. Think about that; if God sent you a personal E-Mail every day, would you open it and read it? You bet you would! Well God has done better than that; He has given you His Words in a book that you can always have. You can always have His alive and healing Word with you!

Today, treat God's Word as the precious jewel that it is. Don't forget to take it with you wherever you go; hide it in your heart to prevent sin; speak it to bring its manifestation in your life; and live it to transform your world for His Glory!
