Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
God, I want to experience the life-altering, life-giving power of your word. I am not content to just read the pages; I want to feel your spirit moving and working through what is written. Discipline me in approaching scripture with expectation and commitment. Help me give it the time and effort required to establish deep connection and understanding. May your message search and reshape me to match the image of Christ more each day. Amen.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judged the thoughts and attitudes of the heard. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
