.  .  .  TO HELP ME BECOME LIFE GIVING BY THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK.

For this day, Lord God, I pray and ask that you heavenly Father strengthen me to speak with the wisdom and grace of your Word so that others will see You O God in me and not myself; that encouragement and edification would be received and understood by those whom I speak them to. Instill in me Lord God, a peaceful and contrite spirit, where love, joy, longsuffering and kindness rests upon the walls of my heart; Teach Heavenly Father how to know humility, to love one another as you have loved and continue to love me. Let your peace reign within me that what comes out of me will bring hope and lead them to you O God.

“The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; The wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook.”  –  Proverbs 18:4

Read Your Word This Morning?

Posted by Men of Redemption on May 4, 2016

Breakfast of Champions

One of the most important strategies I implement when reading God’s Word is trying to read it with purpose and intentionality. It’s one thing to pick up God’s Word and just begin to read it, then say you’ve read a chapter of two, maybe three on a good day. But what I try to do is get involved with the characters of the Bible I’m reading about. I put myself in their place and ask God to show me what should I do in their situation. I ask God what is it that He is trying to tell me or say to me, and how can I learn and apply His Word to my life, to the situations and struggles I face on a daily basis. But I also want to get to know God on a more personal level, finding out who He is, and what He expects of me and from me. I know it’s a lot to decipher in reading or studying His Word, but if I take reading His Word seriously as I should, I will come to know my Savior in a more personal, relational manner, and keeping holy and reverent acknowledgement to His deity and omnipresent being.
