Restoring a Life of Purity – One Day at a Time

Read Your Word This Morning?

Posted by Men of Redemption on September 8, 2016

Breakfast of ChampionsAs I began to choose what book of God’s Word I’m going to read next the other day, I was reminded in my spirit- Is God Pleased with my efforts or due diligence in reading or studying His Word? I mean, I definitely don’t read His Word out of obligation or because I have to. I read His Word because I enjoy the comforts of knowing who my Heavenly Father is, who my Creator is, who it is that spoke life and everything I see into existence. That’s powerful in my eyes! I’m learning so much about God’s personality, His heart and about how He feels about people and why we do what we do. I read over and over again about people in the bible about the decisions they make, the choices they settle for, and I see so much of myself in all of it. But because He loves me so much, more than I love myself, I truly understand by reading His Word that He really cares about me more than I could ever imagine. I’m thankful to have the privilege to spend time reading His Word and about Him. I believe God is happy when He sees His creation picking up the Word of God, with true intentions and an open heart, to read, to understand, and to absorb His Word in our lives for a better understanding of who He is and what He wants and desires for us in this life. I’d like to see God smiling when He sees me reading His Word, perhaps a grin that that so wide with joy that I could even begin how His hearts must feel about me. I’m forever grateful Lord Jesus! You are so awesome, and your love for me is limitless as your Word tells and shows me!
