Reading and Living in God’s Word

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3 NIV

The following message came in an email from a site to which I subscribe: “Reading the holy Scriptures confers two benefits. It trains the mind to understand them; it turns man’s attention from the follies of the world and leads him to the love of God. Two kinds of study are called for here. We must first learn how the Scriptures are to be understood, and then see how to expound them with profit and in a manner worthy of them . . . No one can understand holy Scripture without constant reading . . . The more you devote yourself to the study of the sacred utterances, the richer will be your understanding of them, just as the more the soil is tilled, the richer the harvest.”
— St. Isidore of Seville, p. 201
AN EXCERPT FROM
Witness of the Saints

Much of my time now is spent in God’s Word. I think about all the years when I was just living my life and not giving enough time to My Heavenly Father. It really makes me wonder why HE is so faithful to me when I neglected HIM so much. His Love is unconditional. He does not just have love. HE is Love. He created it, and it is His Nature.

I have completed my study of Jeremiah and Ezekiel. I must confess that I will need to do the study again because God gave me so much information, and it may have gotten a little mixed up in my hard head. The truth is every time I reread the Bible, certain scriptures stand out more with each reading. I believe that God leads me to different places in His Word for a reason.

I am studying the Book of Revelation now because it seems relevant to the things going on in our country and across the world. It is difficult to read and understand all the things that will surely happen because God told us through His Prophets what would be true. My constant prayer is that people listen and heed His Word. God IS Faithful and True to His Word. He Wants EVERY Soul to be saved. I am praying for our country to put God FIRST and turn back to Him.

Please pray for me as I am praying for you.
