“[For my determined purpose is]
that I may know Him
[that I may progressively become more deeply and
intimately acquainted with Him…
Philippians 3:10 (Amplified)
You know that feeling when you curl up with your favorite book, when you’re captivated by the story and the character becomes so real that you think it’s you? The story becomes so real, and that’s what God wants us to do with His Word. Allow His Word ~ His truth ~ to become real to you, as you curl up with The Bible, and recognize as you read it, that it is about you and for you!
In its entirety, The Bible is sharing who God is ~ His love, plans, cautions and His hopes for us ~ it’s personal, put your name in the scripture as you read it! God gives us personal examples through Jesus Christ on how to handle life’s struggles, because He walked this earth and understands each and every personal pain, sorrow, suffering and victory!
“For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]…”
Hebrews 4:12a (Amplified)
Allow yourself to curl up with The Word, asking God to open your eyes as you get to Know Him. “That I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him.”
Jesus said: “If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.” (John 15:7 Amplified) His Words can’t remain in us unless we get to Know Him.
I encourage you to do so with God’s help!
God’s Love and Blessings to you and yours,
