Does the thought of digging into the bible seem overwhelming? Sometimes feel unpersonal? In the past that was me and it was not easy to take these God stories from long ago and have them relate to my current struggles. That was until God showed me that in being that He is the same yesterday, today and forever ever word is relevant. And anytime I go to read “man”, “he” or “they”, replace it with my name. That changed everything when it came to me reading the bible and connecting in a personal way that makes every promise so real.
You see when He spoke so clearly to me a couple years ago of “how much He loves the one and He would move heaven and earth for the one” it gave me such a new perspective. Each verse is catered to me personally because I am the one. You are the one. I encourage you to sit down and start reading His life giving word which had meaning not just for Luke, John and James but is just as powerful for us today.
Then Leah cried out to the Lord in her trouble, and the Lord brought her out of her distress. The Lord stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the seawere hushed. Leah was glad when it grew calm, and the Lord guided her to her desired haven. Let Leah give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for her.” –Psalm 107: 28-31
Jesus is our intimate father and friend. He speaks sweetly over us in many forms. He is not a distant God but remains close and holds the hope of unchanging promises just as much today as in history.
Thank you Jesus for the promises in your word that never fail, never revise and are forever personal.
