“KNOWING GOD THROUGH HIS WORD”
The role of the Bible in establishing a vibrant personal relationship with God cannot be over emphasized. The Bible is the word of God but not everything written in the Bible was directly said by God. Recorded within the pages of the Bible is the voice of God, of man and of the devil so that we know their nature and operations. Many people prefer seeking God through dreams, visions, miracles and other spectacular ways that they have no control over. Seeking God primarily through the above ways can be very elusive, evasive, frustrating and deceptive. After all, the most important thing in any supernatural encounter is what God says.
Lord, open my eyes to see Jesus through the pages of the Bible. Lord, cause me to desire Your Word above my daily food.
MEMORY VERSE FOR THE WEEK:
Jeremiah 9:24 (NIV) –”but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice, and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the LORD.
