With each devotion I have written, I have attached a “hyperlink” that when you click on it the link will take directly to www.biblegateway.com. You can read all the scriptures for that day from that site. I do that because I know that God’s Word, the Bible is the most important book in our life.
In fact, it is our instruction manual. I like what one person said, “Scripture is our ‘basic instruction before leaving earth’”.
The Bible is our inspiration during tough times. Read the Psalms and you will discover hope and power and strength for any circumstance.
The Bible is His revelation of His will for our life. God reveals Himself in awesome ways in the Bible. He reveals His love. He shows His wrath tempered with mercy. He shows the way to eternal…through Jesus Christ His Son.
Israel was blessed because of their obedience. So too can we be blessed when we listen to His instruction for out life.
Father, teach us from Your Holy Word all that you desire for us…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
