This week the word of God has just been amazing and beautiful. I say “this week” because there are often many times where the hardness of my heart makes me cold and unwilling to let it change me.
However, this is one of those weeks I should rejoice in. It was hard. It was beautiful. I felt overwhelmed at everything. There were some nights that I got done with what had been planned and looked at the clock and it was 11 – time to go to sleep and wake up and do it all over again.
Yet, each morning I ran to the bible to find some peace before I was pulled in other directions. I read words that nobody is eloquent enough to ever speak into my life. In Hebrews I was told that Jesus can sympathize with my weakness, since he lived on earth too. I was told to rejoice in my suffering, for it brings endurance. I was comforted to know that Jesus is the “steadfast anchor of the soul”.
In Hebrews 4:12 it says “For the word of the God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart”.
I’ve never felt the depth and strength of the word of God until I used it and pursued it as if it were living and active. I pray that I could view it more relevant, more trustworthy, more powerful than other places that I could go for direction (including myself).
